Shooting at Antoine’s?!?!?!

Apr 26, 2007 by

Evidently a few bare minutes ago there was a shooting at Antoine’s restaurant here in the French Quarter. To use a classic internet acronym, WTF? One of the oldest and poshest restaurants in town, in the middle of the most heavily trafficed part of the city and there is a shooting in broad daylight?

Obviously the marching and ranting against crime has resulted in no real net gain. This is bloody horrible, not only because someone may well be dead now, but also because the day to day killings in impoverished parts of the city do not get the attention lavished upon them that this will. Nauseating.
To steal a line from Joeseph Conrad, “The Horror, The Horror…”

More to come as I get info
