Katrina, that bitch

The Stranger helps right wing mullahs round up the unusual suspects to blame for Katrina (that bitch). Among them:

ANNE RICE One can only celebrate, and profit from, the “dark arts” for so long before one brings God’s wrath down upon one’s head. Anne Rice, who hasn’t written a single decent book during her interminably long career, may have brought Katrina’s epic destruction to the city she has celebrated in her novels about vampires, witches, mummies, and more vampires. Paganism, homosexuality, the “goth” way of life—these dissolute lifestyles have been promoted and glamorized in Rice’s fiction, inspiring scores of dweebish teens to turn away from more wholesome pursuits. Frankly, we’re surprised God didn’t level the city after Violin was published.
Other suspects include the disasterous New Orleans Saints, The Simpsons (Marge sang about NO in one episode Lived a city that the damned called home/Hear their hellish roundelay…/New Orleeeans…/Home of pirates, drunks, and whores!/New Orleeeans…), and the usual suspects.

Carnacki: I have cried so much this past week over New Orleans. Just after graduating from Kent State, I moved to New Orleans for almost a yr. I lived w/my life long gay friend and his boyfriend at their posh apartment overlooking the Superdome before I got my own place on General Pershing St. From what I understand, my apartment is either under water or in standing water. I knew that the Talibornagains would rev up their spew machine ASAP, but to blame this on gays, abortions, Gothic themes or the Simpsons is un-f**cking believable to me. I am so happy that I had the luxury to spend a yr of my life in that grubby, sweaty, dirty, breath takingly beautiful and unbelievably dazzling and gorgeous city. My sadness is overwhelming for the historic loss America has suffered and for the sickening needless loss of life. That people can even say that Bush & Co is NOT responsible goes beyond comprehension. Unless you holed yourself up in a luxury hotel near the Quarter and didn't leave the room, you COULD NOT ignore or see the abject poverty that is the life blood of the city. The city is so poor-- so hanging by a thin thread-- yet partying and celebrating continues... that is New Orleans... celebration despite adversity... may the mighty spirit of Marie Laveau reach out from beyond her lovely grave in St. Louis cemetery and keep the life blood of the city intact. If the predator real estate developers (who have been salivating at the bit to rid the city of the poor's homes) turns New Orleans into a wealthy WHITE wonderland, I hope that the mighty spirits surrounding New Orleans and the Mississippi object and let their displeasure be known.

Amusingly enough, Anne Rice has not lived in New Orleans for some time. One would think that a deity smart enough to control the weather could also keep tabs on where the folks he wants to smite get their mail.

May Marie Laveau, Queen of Voodoo, come back and curse those in this Administration and those freaking stupid enough to say Anne Rice was the cause of Katrina.

I'm pulling out my voodoo dolls, pins and instructions and getting to work.
