It's hard to be funny when there's a major disaster going on, like in New Orleans. The Big Easy is having a difficult time, but I'm sure in time it will be back.
Cities getting wiped out by disasters is not new. Fires, earthquakes and floods have taken their toll over the centuries.
My prediction is that come next year Mardi Gras will be held right on time and herald the birth of a new New Orleans.
Houston, meanwhile, will be home to thousands of displaced New Orleans citizens and we here at 12tutufondue welcome them to Bayou City. Glad we could lend a hand.
