Laboring Day

We work, even when aren't supposed to, us non-profit professionals. We make phone calls. We worry. Our empathy - a weapon used against us.

The killers in the street, yea, they working too:

A 27-year-old man was shot to death Monday afternoon in Hollygrove, New Orleans police said.
The shooting occurred about 2 p.m. in the 8600 block of Belfast Street. The victim, who was found lying in the street with several wounds to the head and body, was pronounced dead at the scene by emergency responders.

My beat, kids:
Two men were shot in the 7th Ward on Sunday evening after a man began firing a gun at St. Bernard Avenue and Marais Street, New Orleans police said.
Two men, ages 20 and 40, were injured, police spokesman Garry Flot said. Their wounds were not thought to be life-threatening, he said. The attacker fled on foot, Flot said.

A Marrero man was in critical condition Monday evening after being found shot in the chest in an empty lot about a mile from his home, authorities said.
Jefferson Parish sheriff's deputies found Brandon Washington, 19, in the 1600 block of Julie Street in Marrero, around 8:30 p.m. Monday.

Let's all take a moment off our feet and sit a spell.
