What would you take?

The Wal-Mart store in uptown New Orleans, built within the last year, survived the storm but was destroyed by looters.

"They took everything. They took all the electronics, the food, the bikes," said John Stonaker, a Wal-Mart security officer. "People left their old clothes on the floor when they took new ones. The only thing left are the country-and-western CDs. You can still get a Shania Twain album."

At least Louisianans haven't lost their taste in music! C'mon, giggle with me, I could use the laughter.

Heard on a local radio station today:

some politician mumbo jumbo, an official being appointed somewhere (sorry, I was only half listening as I generally listen to news of the Hurricane Katrina mess these days)... anyway, this political figure said, "I don't believe Roe v. Wade has a super-dooper precedence here."

Hello?! Two MAJOR things here:
# 1) ANY politician saying Roe v. Wade has no precedence?! WTF?!
# 2) using the word "super-dooper"?! (a political figure no less...)

I've said it before, and I'll say it again, I.FEAR.FOR.OUR.COUNTRY.

  2. They left the country CD's? LOL

  3. I too would have left the country music CDs, especially Shania Twain. Every single one of her songs sounds exactly the same. She is NOT super-dooper.

  4. It's ironic that, in one single post, you can give me such hope for the musical tastes of our country and then frighten me with their less than "super-dooper" word choices.

    I'm kidding about the musical preferences. Sorta.

  5. When I think about all the lifetime federal judges that were and will be appointed by this administration, I get really sad for my kids.
    What would I take? hmm. Well I wanted a new food processor, but in the big scheme of things a house might be a better choice.

  6. oh, I'm sorry girls, you ALL make me laugh...but ms. sheila, you take the cake.

    I love it when someone can make me laugh in a way that my husband has to ask from the other room,"what's so funny?"

  9. Ok, the music thing is pretty damn funny. I mean even in New Orleans they hate country.

    Dude, where is country popular?

  10. I really hated that comment when they published it. Let's go to Chalmette and see if any country CD's were left.

    It doesn't matter anyway, my parents and numerous friends aren't moving back.
