"Former NOPD detective Jeffery Lehrmann has pleaded guilty to misprison of a felony for his involvement in the police cover-up of the Danziger Bridge shooting." (How clumsy is the structure of THAT sentence? I should go apply for work at:

wwltv.com

That clumsy (and simple) statement won't do. It's not the total omission of guilt that so many of us yearn for...people WERE MURDERED during the aftermath of Katrina.

And? I'm nodding--I told a few friends from this site that it would take a few YEARS for the truth to be outed. I'm also aware that local corruption has made national news, and please note that we are not only watching in joy as the locally corrupt fall--we are the ones playing watchdog of our own backyard.

Ooooh...I think I hear a brass band playing some impromptu jazz...

I am grinnin' like Bob Dylan
singing in his voice.
Tell me that you heard the news
and lie and talk about "no choice".

Steal this for some other guy--
who is not desperate.
Tell me that you voted for
a guy who ain't a born despot.

Politics, I heard, absurd
is for the hopeful afterall.
And if you think it can't get worse,
you're a fool and I'm appalled.

(Bobby? Call me.)
