All weekend long, I've been seeing retweets, status posts, and now an article on nola.com about N.O. being crime free for 15 days straight. Everyone is so happy and thankful. And why wouldnt we be? One would think, "15 days? Thats not long at all!" But when you're living in New Orleans, you better get down on your knees and thank God because 15 days is like 15 months around here!
But wait...today ended that stretch when police got a call about a killing of a 22-year-old male in the Desire neighborhood. So much for excitement; but hey, thank God for those 15 days. It's uber crazy in these streets.
See the full story. ♥
