One of my favorite quotes is from a guy named Vic Schiro, who happened to be mayor of New Orleans when hurricane Betsy hit us in 1965. Parts of the city were flooded, all sorts of stories were going around, and people were getting panicky. So old Vic gets on television and tells people “Don’t believe any false rumors unless you hear them from me.” A real New Orleans classic. <g>
