"A fundraiser for the Ninth Ward"

By some total accident, I ended up in front of a TV tonight just as the horrible "K-Ville" began. I was cooking in the other room, not really paying attention, but then I kept hearing the phrase "A fundraiser for the Ninth Ward." They're having a fundraiser for the Ninth Ward. Someone gets shot at the fundraiser for the Ninth Ward. We're going to raise money for the Ninth Ward. Like its an official entity with its own checking account. And later, at anther fundraiser I think, a beautiful uptown girl is revealed to have a brother who was killed four years ago...in "the Ninth." Changing a tire. Then, just after that bit is doled out to us, a bunch of cars roll by, spray the crowd with machine gun fire and then, of course, a police car explodes.

Oh, and the uptown girl is named DuBois, of course.

I saw it too, Ken. At least the characters don't speak in bizarre accents. For that small mercy I am grateful.
