Opportunity

I tell you, never be a time like Katrina. That was the best. All them folks cowering in the Superdome meant one thing to us: New Orleans was unoccupied. It didn’t take much to get us a boat and a chainsaw. Bang, we was in business. East Jefferson, Algiers. All the streets took at least six foot of water or more. We’d drift up to a likely house, step onto the roof and cut our way in. ┬áMostly we took jewelry, it being portable, but Junior worked in a pawn shop and knew a valuable trumpet when he saw it.
