Yesterday, NOMB worked in the rain, dealt with the TV cameras, fought off that nasty stomach stuff that everyone below Canal St. is dealing with, and managed to make it up to Touro to see a brand new baby boy born at 10:15.

So when we saw this story, it made us feel a little better. It let us know we weren't the only ones working on Christmas:

Two people were killed and four others were wounded in a brazen Christmas night shooting in Central City that left dozens of bullets from an assault rifle scattered across the 2400 block of Josephine Street shortly before 6:30 p.m., police said.
Dozens of neighborhood residents flocked to what they described as a notoriously violent street. They stared aghast at scene. They yelled for divine intervention, and for the police officers to let them see the wounded.
A pair of young men tried to rush the crime scene by running through the police tape. They were turned back by officers.
Those who survived the attack faired as followed:
An 22-year-old man was taken to the hospital in critical condition with gunshot wounds to the neck and leg, said Jeb Tate, spokesman for New Orleans Emergency Medical Services.
An 18-year-old man was shot in the leg. A woman, 19, was shot in the knee. And a man, 17, was shot in the arm, Tate said.

Oh well.
