yep me too... now I can continue to harass him about the money he owes me.

Ok, Yeah, I know that sounds harsh... but I also know he'll appreciate the humor in it whenever he gets around to reading this comment.

Seriously though, yeah i'm glad he's ok.

I'm sure he'll definitely appreciate the humor, especially since I doubt he's had much to laugh about the past few days.

One of my friends at IUP is leaving in the morning for Mississippi, and my roommates "big" for her fraternity is leaving Saturday morning.

yeah, my brother went back to the house that he shares with my mom and my grandmother in Gulfport, MS a few days ago. They faired better than they could have hoped for, but from what I understand its could be quite a while before they can go back to live there. Its pretty much a mess.

As for New Orleans, I fear its pretty much just a total loss for most people. I don't think it will ever be the same. I hope for the best for everyone there. We still haven't heard from my girlfriend's former roommate who lives there as well.

Yeah, there are a lot of places in MS that are completely flattened, and NO is covered in 25 feet of water. I truly feel bad for everyone down there.

yeah, its weird... and like any tragedy I just can't stop watching and analyzing. I mean, the destruction and the causualties and loss or livelihood are horrific. the stuff that people down there are going through is horrible. But then when i allow myself to step away from it and just watch with a critical mind I find the entire thing a fascinating social experiment. Kinda cold, but I can't help it. I'm totally enthralled by both the stories of the breakdown of society and the stories of acts of kindness and amazed at all you can learn about the human condition through it.

I feel similarly with every major disaster.

Yeah I understand. I've been looking at it criminologically. Like what makes those people steal tvs and computers? Is it more oppertunity or more survival instinct that they need something of value to barter with?

I think it's a terrible tragedy.

well, there's two parts. One, its just chaos. Chaos breeds more chaos. Mob mentality is like that. Some of the people are just bad, and some of the people are just caught up in the craziness.

But then there's the other aspect. Imagine losing everything you ever owned. Everyone you know also lost everything they ever owned. And you feel like you've been trapped and left to die. If you can get out, you'll be getting out with just the clothes on your back. If it were me, and I could steal a 4x4 truck and load the back up with stolen TVs that I can sell on the street once I get to some semblance of civiliation, I'd probably do that. It might be the difference between being homeless once I get to dry land andd being able to put my family in a Holiday Inn til we get back on our feet.

That said, you also have all the rape and murder going on. I think that's just people losing their minds. I can't excuse it, but its understandable. The entire world just went to absolute shit for them in 12 hours time. That's gotta change a person. Its a shame and its sad.

Yep, those are some of the points brought up in class. At least they're starting to get help down there.
[User Picture]From: chrismaverick Date: September 3rd, 2005 - 03:21 am (Link)
ooh! your class agreed with me?

woohoo! I'm smart!
[User Picture]From: sexyhockihoochi Date: September 3rd, 2005 - 05:05 am (Link)
Some of them did. And some of them are a little too conservative to agree. lol
[User Picture]From: chrismaverick Date: September 3rd, 2005 - 12:29 pm (Link)
ok... I'm smart to liberal people! I guess I can take that.

I wonder if your friend is my brother's friend. He told me two of his fraternity brothers in the army got called to go and help.
[User Picture]From: sexyhockihoochi Date: September 2nd, 2005 - 01:54 am (Link)
It's possible. I go to IUP.
[User Picture]From: thwomp Date: September 2nd, 2005 - 02:15 pm (Link)
Is your friend in ACACIA?
[User Picture]From: sexyhockihoochi Date: September 3rd, 2005 - 12:34 am (Link)
I have no clue what that is. Sorry!
