21 months after Katrina, I ran into a neighbor on Touro and Urquart. She was worried about being able to find an apartment in our area, given that rent for a single shotgun down the block was a staggering 1400 dollars a months. She is on disability, taking dialysis several times a week. She has no car, so she was trudging around the neighborhood on foot looking for \"For Rent\" signs.\r\n\r\nWhy had she started a conversation with me in the first place? She was trying to find a way to bring her Jack Russell terrier to the pound. She figured that it\'s hard enough to find an affordable place to live without trying to find one that\'s pet-friendly as well. \r\n\r\nSo next week I\'m going to take her dog to the pound in my vehicle while she circles the streets looking for a place in between visits to the renal care clinic. \r\n
