Here we go y’all…
Well folks, posting has been slow, I will not lie. Things here in the Big UnEasy has been tumultuous to say the least. I have been buried in work doing construction during the day and web development/wedding plans at night.
Soooo……. Since I will be increasingly out of action and posting more sporadically I am opening up HumidCity as a group blog. I am giving the Legendary PH Fred posting access this coming week so steel yourselves for the satirical onslaught. Check out the article in the current Offbeat about him for more background!

“Katrina killed my mom,” says New Orleans comedian/musician P.H. Fredâ€™s MySpace page. In fact, his mother died of natural causes in an old folksâ€™ home shortly before the levees gave way. What Katrina did do was send him on a month-and-a-half-long odyssey to find her body.
“Every day we were told, ‘We have no idea who Mrs. Catherine Schneider is,’” Fred remembers. “Six weeks into it, I got a phone call [from FEMA]. They said, ‘We have your motherâ€™s body.’” It turns out they had her body all along but said they couldnâ€™t tell him because “it was a matter of national security.”
In addition, I cannot say if or how often you might see posts from her but I have also given posting access to the mighty Maitri. You have been warned!
