Crime is the big issue in the city right now. It always is actually. All the local bloggers are talking about it. I was just sitting here reading some of them and couldn't think of one new opinion about the topic. This topic is an old issue for me. I have lived it forever and wrote about it since I discovered that I knew how. I decided to search my own page for references to crime and murder. I don't want to be out of the local blogger loop on this so I thought I would go a little retro and present.

This one was ten days before the hurricane and might be the best one of all.
This one is my favorite.
Just for an added bonus, here's a short one before Hurricane Katrina in April 2005 back when I was a blogger puppy trying to learn how to express myself.
I don't see myself as some kind of hood messenger or anything. I come in contact with black people all day and 90% of them have no idea I do this. I also don't get paid for anyone clicking on these old links. All I have invested is concern for my city and my community, a little bit of ability to explain what's going on and absolutely no idea how to fix it besides doing the right thing myself and making sure none of my people contribute to the problem. If correspondence and statistics are true, there are more people reading what I have to say now. Someone might find this and use it to help them understand some things that are not always on the news to work towards an idea that might change it. I might have something else to say later on. Right now I think I have said everything that one brother can say.
