Close to home

NOMB swung by the house yesterday to charge the phone and eat peanut butter and jelly on four wheat crackers to keep them moving through the day. On their way out, four national guard troops pulled up in front of their house. All the while, only blocks away:

Two 15-year-old 9th Ward youths were wounded in a drive-by shooting late Monday afternoon, police said. Ivestigators learned the two had been standing in the 3200 block of Marais Street when a red vehicle headed west on Marais Street drove by, and one or more occupants of the vehicle opened fire, Flot said. Both were hit. They ran around the corner and collapsed on Piety Street, police said.

Day of paranoia to be sure. Sweet summer.
