Swing Home, Sweet Choc-o-late

Swing on home, Sweet Choc-o-late
Make Nawlins your home.

I looked over Pontchartrain and what did I see
(No buses for to carry them home)*
A band of new homeless people gunnin' after me.
(bulldozers gonna bury their old homes)*

Swing Home, Sweet Choc-o-late
Make Nawlins your home.
Swing on home, Sweet Choc-o-late
Make Nawlins your home.

If FEMA don't get blamed ahead of me,
(for not Makin' Nawlins a safe home)*
I'll need protection from N.O.P.D
(to Make Nawlins my safe home.)*

Swing Home, Sweet Choc-o-late
Make Nawlins your home.
Swing on home, Sweet Choc-o-late
Make Nawlins your home.

I'm sometimes up, but I keep gettin' put down,
(for not Makin' Nawlins a good home):
Most people think I'm some Mardi Gras Clown
(The circus could be my new home!)*

Swing Home, Sweet Choc-o-late
Make Nawlins your home.
Swing on home, Sweet Choc-o-late
Make Nawlins your home.

Sean if you are still around, trust us, we know that. (Not to whine but...) Remember this is an all volunteer organization. For various reasons that are probably too long to discuss here, neither Keven, nor Jay nor myself had the time to really do much more "news blogging." (Plus Iraq disappread for a week with Cheneygate.)

Blah Blah Blah...

Bottom line is, we are bringing in a forth blogger to help fill the holes. Hope you appreciate the effort and never be shy about (reasonable:-) feedback.

Kim is going to spend some time with us and we hope everyone likes her work. Of course by the time I type this she's made more than a few posts, several about Iraq.
