I was about to do another wingthing ficbit, but I think I lost my bunny. -_- I saw this on [info]apathocles's journal.

"They wanted them poor niggers out of there." (A short article, with links to more information, about hurricane recovery being used as a cover to keep the poor of New Orleans from returning to their homes on some valuable real estate.)

Were I able, I would like to go down there and push those mercenaries into arresting me. I'd be very interested to hear what the charges would be. Although I imagine the dramatic irony would be heightened if it was one of those people who lived there pre-Katrina. "You're under arrest for trespassing." "In my own fucking front yard!?" (Though I imagine getting arrested represents a greater threat for someone who's poor and practically homeless than it would be for me.)

And what the hell can I do about it? I'm a student - trapped by finance and circumstance. If I could pick up and go down there I would. *flails* GAH. Every day it gets harder to not hope for something painful to happen to our beloved president.

And now for something completely different.

I really should play with my tarot deck more. Currently I'm trying to design a new pouch for them... )

There's five different deck designs you can choose from. Is nifty. ^_^
