Lydia Hopkins, letter to the editor, The Times-Picayune:

Yesterday I took an old friend, in town for the American Library Association convention, on “the tour” — four hours driving past scene after scene of devastation. It wasn’t much different from the way it looked two months ago, but for the presence of the National Guard, and this time I noticed that on several homes in the Lower 9th Ward, someone had painted “Baghdad” on the walls.

It’s getting hard to tell the difference.
