Brown has a story on the NOLA site about the joy of ice in hot, humid New Orleans. It's all a good read, but the kicker is especially marvy and seems to sum up the spirit of Louisiana survivors:
"You sure you don't want something? Beer? Coke? Kentwood water?" Slim Christen asked a visitor. "I've finally got ice and I'm not jealous with it. I'll share with anybody."
