“Everything’s falling, and I am included in that
Oh, how I try to be just okay”*

I’ve been thinking for a few days about what to write for the 2nd anniversary – a classic longass post in my usual style. Hasn’t really worked out. Then last night I was watching television and cleaning up around the ol’ FEMA trailer. Nova was showing a rerun of an hour by hour time line of events surrounding Katrina. Surfing around I found a few other shows with some relevance to Hurricane Katrina. That’s when I realized we’re in syndication or sorts. Not really syndication but I couldn’t think of a better word for it. It’s like when a famous actor dies and that weekend stations play whatever movies that actor was in that they hold the rights to. You’ll see they’re biggest hit, if it was recent, playing on TBS in a loop for 48 hours. You’ll see they’re early work on TCM. An encore presentation of Inside the Actor’s Studio on A&E if one was ever filmed. You see what I’m getting at…

Still, things are a little different. We’re also now Bill Clinton’s Saxophone. We’re a political prop – a vote getting gimmick – a podium from which to spew rhetoric.

Those are my complete thoughts on this whole thing. There’s nothing more.

    SYNDICATION is a very appropriate word. Let’s take New Orleans out, dust if off and play some re-runs of Katrina; that will make everyone think we still remember and give a shit.
