My Kingdom for A Fridge!

Poppy Z. Brite says it best, "Call me crazy, but I think this is fucked."

After 3 years and almost 3 months, James Perry cannot yet afford a refrigerator to replace the one he lost during Hurricane Katrina. There was no salvaging a fridge that was bereft of electricity and sat for weeks with contents fermenting. Yes, it's gross but everyone around these parts had to dispose of their manky refrigerator. This gentleman received homeowners and flood insurance payments for his home on N. Miro Street, but they were insufficient to repair the damage.

So as we all begin preparation of our Thanksgiving feasts in the days to come, let's remember that there are people continuing their recovery from Katrina, Rita, Gustav and Ike who would still need a refrigerator.
