Blue Train

By: Patrap , 4:16 PM GMT on August 22, 2010







Another day is ending
And I remember when
My world, came falling down
Out there the stars stop dancing
Lost in my darkness now
The rain, keeps falling down
Light of my life, where have you gone
Love's true flame dies, without the warmth of your sun
Ah - ah - ah - ah - ah - ah
Here comes the blue train rollin'
Across my heart it crawls
The rain still pouring down
Another day escapes me
A little later maybe
Love will roll around
Light of my life, where have you gone
Love's true flame dies, without the warmth of your sun
I've been waiting on a corner
Yeah, I've been waiting for a sign
Ohhh, I've been waiting on the corner
I've been waiting for a sign now, oh now
Light of my life, where have you gone
Love's true flame dies, without the warmth of your sun
Whistle blowin', blue train rollin', carry my heart, my soul
Whistle blowin', blue train rollin', carry my darling son
Whistle blowin', blue train rollin', carry my heart
I've been waiting on a corner
I've been waiting for a sign now
Ohh, I've been waiting on the corner
I've been waiting for a sign, now, oh oh, ooh
Whistle blowin', blue train rollin'
Carry my heart now, oh yeah, ohhh
I've been waiting on a corner
I've been waiting for a sign
Hear the blue train, hear the blue train, ohh
It's the blue train rolling

We were many..and I gladly and proudly put my Service in the Cajun Navy,,right up there next to my USMC service.

So many voices ..so many people,

..to leave the dead to find and save the Living,is not a easy thing.

But the needs of the many those first few terrible days,outweighed the needs of the few, or like me, the one.

Oh, Pat ~

Of everything you've posted, the photo of Nova breaks my heart.

It's been a long five years.Thanks for the videos, the music and the 17th street marker.
They all help us remember.

As for that "dead cities" list... Here's what a woman wrote in my wordpress comments today.

In response to your comment about those who do not love Louisiana:)

Pschaw!those journalists! I often read top 10 lists, just to see what’s what but always find, with some disappointment, that they never have anything to do wtih people. They always have to do with numbers: how many businesses, how many homicides, how many dual income families, how many this, how many that. Louisiana is people and beauty all wrapped up in heat and spanish moss and language.(Yes, I sound blithe, but do not mean to).

Yeah, it’s tough to have the capitalistic light (and in many cases, the hard reality) only shone on everything…meanwhile, Louisiana, and Galveston, endure, thank God and go forward regardless.


Yep.

Hiya sandcrab..
Like a bad dream it all comes rushing back to the moment.
Moments one can hardly relate to another. Your a friend and mentor..one who shared with me here 4 years ago.

Thanks for that...

And thanks for everything you did for your community then..and now.

America could learn many a lesson from your years of experience.

I know I have.

Some "Other's" choose to be ignorant and willy nilly other's woes.

Let um.

"calamity Knows no border's, only men's minds and some women do"



They are what they are.

On vacation in Western NC week before last, someone told us about an RV auction. We were headed that way & checked them out. Very similar models, a few brands, all pretty used. Some had 900lb gorillas waiting for their new owners to recon with, all had this feel of desperation, sadness. It was bizarre, couldn't place it or figure where these came from. We skipped. Found out a few days later they were FEMA trailers from LA.

It’s a Friday afternoon and there's a lively crowd at Trapani's Eatery in Bay St. Louis. Whether pre-Katrina or post-Katrina, that hasn't changed. But this isn't the pre-storm Trapani's.

Updated Monday, Aug 23 at 6:22 PM

NEW ORLEANS -- As the NOPD deals with multiple indictments in connection with the Danziger Bridge case and other federal investigations, Superintendent Ronal Serpas is installing a 65-point plan for reform.

At a news conference to mark his first 100 days in office Monday, Serpas emphasized a new zero tolerance policy on dishonesty most.

"If you lie, you die. If you tell this police department a lie about anything, you will be terminated. If you allow a false or inaccurate report to be created under your name, you will be terminated," Serpas said.

The plan also calls for a revision of NOPD's hiring standards, and, with the help of state police, an overhaul in recruit training.

Other steps include: the use of vehicle tracking devices in squad cars, computer tracking of officers' off duty details, and a policy banning them from receiving cash payment for the work.

Serpas believes certain polices will be met with resistance from some in the NOPD.

"They must understand that this plan is in the best interest of the citizens we serve and the forward professionalism of their service, he said.If anyone cannot embrace these changes, then we will replace them with professional police officers who will."

There are questions -- especially when it comes to the dishonesty policy.

Henry Dean, who heads up the Fraternal Order of Police, said his group is concerned unintentional inaccuracies or mistakes could lead to termination.

"If I believe something to be true and I can back it up with the facts that I have, then even if you say, 'Oh no, that didn't happen or can't happen,' -- that's not a lie. It's an interpretation of what I see," Dean said. "We want the investigators that are gonna be handling these cases -- specifically these very serious cases -- have the proper training, so that when they make a decision, it's a well informed, reasonable, intelligent decision."

Dean said his group and its members support the reform effort overall, and said he hopes to work with the superintendent on clearing up any grey areas in the dishonesty policy.

Monday, as Serpas unveiled the tougher penalties, he said they're necessary to help the department improve and recover from the damaging actions of a handful of former officers.

"The selfish behavior of people's admitted comments during Katrina have ripped from the history books the tremendous bravery of so many men and women in this police department. Nobody talks about that, and -- rightfully so -- the insult committed on this community by those officers that have plead guilty is something we can never forget and will never forget," he said.

Thanx for the Kind words robin,,we've all come a long way since those Long,Hot and terrible Post K storm days.

 And although 19 days are certainly not the full measure of a Mans Life..for me they were the most inspiring and difficult ones easily.

About the plaque, I'm glad to see the recognition of the history finally taking place.

When we were in NOLA we saw anything
but a "DEAD" city ....the french quarter
was bustling, people about doing business,
and a very well attended conference...
I saw HOPE not A DEAD CITY...

While Galveston and NOLA and other cities
have a way to go due to the past 5 years,
we are on the rebound!
