Speaking of Ashley Morris, some random guy left the following comment on my blog:
Ilove NO and would like to live there someday but the mentality of a large part of the minority population is that they are owed something. Since Katerna, there has been Taco and Mexican restaurants popping up every where. That is great because the people rebuilding NO need to eat. It is sad the lazy locals have no energy to rebuild there town. I was in NO 3 times in the last 2 monthes and see alot of sitting around. There are parts where I can’t tell what ghetoo was pre or post Katrena. I send my money to the MS Gulf Coast where the real damage occurred.

Now if you’re wondering what that has to do with Ashley, you obviously didn’t know him. He would have made cyber-mincemeat out of this guy. He was a master of invective. Local bloggers often spoke of “channeling Ashley” when they went on a rant — and this was before he passed away, mind you.
I wish I could unleash the fury of Ashley on this guy from Ohio. He had the bad taste to leave his puerile comment on a post about Helen Hill, my other recently departed friend. Ashley had a word for guys like that.
