(The picture is of the statue in the courtyard of the Saint Louis Cathedral in the French Quarter; I took it a few months after Katrina.)
Marrus's "little blond man" made it back to New Orleans, having left Dragon*Con early Saturday morning, and as of last night was in the convention center with eight other guys, each assigned cots, ready to be dispatched to help with rescues or repairs around the area. Good luck, Jay! Marrus herself was heading to Alabama from Atlanta, with a couple of other friends from NOLA, after the con. Safe travels! Hope you can go home soon.
