Misunderstood

The US government is going to buy up bad loans with our tax dollars. Both candidates "tend" to agree with the bailout. Listen to the debate, and hear how often they admit to sharing the same views, but maybe differ on the minutia of process.

Everyone talks change. But in NOLA, just like in politics and banking, nothing changes.

1)Bruce William Graves, 55, was killed shortly before midnight in the 4900 block of Canal Street in Mid-City. Officers responding to reports of gunfire found his body inside a house. Paramedics pronounced him dead at the scene. Graves had been shot in the head.

2) At about 8:30 a.m. Saturday, an unidentified woman was shot in the 3000 block of Laussat Place in the 9th Ward. Officers found the woman lying on a sidewalk, and paramedics later pronounced her dead at the scene.

You all can live with it. But these two can't.

Her name was Kristen. She was in her early twenties, visiting from California. A lot of broken people are left in the wake of this.

She was my boyfriend's neice. A wonderful and giving young woman, believed in the best of people. She worked hard to make this world a better place for all of us --- we have lost somebody special.
