The Finch Formerly Known As Gold

Good news/bad news

Sean Kelley has discovered that his home in Mandeville, Louisiana, in St. Tammany Parish, across Lake Pontchartrain from New Orleans, is still more or less intact: there was some siding damage, but it's otherwise in decent shape.

Unfortunately, his job has more or less moved to Oklahoma City for the duration: Kelley was hired this summer to be the radio voice of the New Orleans Hornets of the NBA. (Which reminds me: Is there going to be local radio and television here? Cox Sports carried the games on television from New Orleans, and there was a radio network originating from WODT-AM/WRNO-FM.)

I doubt that he's alone. I suspect that lots of those from the New Orleans metropolitan area will find that either 1) there's no job to return to; 2) the job is there but moved elsewhere for the interim.
