For the past few weeks, the National Guard has been using NOCCA--the New Orleans Center for Creative Arts--as a base camp for their operations in the city. In this photo, an exhausted soldier takes a brief break while learning the choreography for his role in CATS, the school's fall production. The armed dance captain stands with his back to the camera and his rifle ready.

No, that's not really what's going on. I was joking!!!

I used to live with a bunch of actors and dancers. Sometimes a semi-automatic rifle is the only way to get them to do what you ask.
