Rock the Boat, Rock the Vote: New Orleans Diary, Chapter 2

April 21st, 2006 by Larry Smith

When we came back home after two months of post-K exile in Asheville, North Carolina (which ain’t exactly the Superdome), most of the plants we’d dragged inside were dead. But our lucky “money” plant was still alive. And, more importantly, so was Tig — the outdoor cat we’d left behind, who reappeared miraculously right after I stopped searching for him online at (”Moron!” he meowed. “I’m out here, on the deck!”)
