A Smile for Algiers

In the midst of the post-Katrina madness, when the city of New Orleans was descending into madness, gunfire, and explosions, Algiers rallied to help the neighbors who stayed behind.

For those MANY of you who responded during that crazy week, with support, messages, and offers of direct help, this article is for you:


While the people involved in the story above are from the Point, all of Algiers responded. You are an amazing community.

And just for the record: The title is misleading in the extreme, to me. There's nothing about self-defense, in the midst of anarchy, that qualifies as vigilante justice.
