Damn You, The Onion


For making me laugh hysterically at New Orleans's situation. Sometimes you have to laugh to keep from crying.

My favorite passage:

"We've done our best to ensure the city is as well off as it was before Katrina hit," Blanco said. "It's all back—the same abandoned cars, the broken bottles, the spent shotgun shells, the rat colonies, even the used diapers on the front lawns. People of New Orleans, welcome home."

Oh, if only we had enough money and resources to return New Orleans even to its old "decrepit" condition.

And for those of you are offended by the story. Remember a few things. First, this is a joke. Second, this is satire. Third, The Onion is anti-establishment/anti-government. An enemy of the enemy is our friend. I know that this can be a sensitive topic for outsiders to make fun of. Sort of like the way you can call your brother a no-good S.O.B., but you'll kick anyone else's ass who says it. But I hope you enjoy it anyway.

Thanks for pointing out that this is from The Onion. For a moment I thought the quote was real.

I ain't offended. My favorite was the paragraph about Charity Hospital, which (unfortunately) is real. Check the headlines lately.

It is more poignant, in the sense that the American government has been unable to provide for its constituents even in the most basic levels.
