DEAREST BAD DEALERS: Hope y’all don’t mind me giving a shout out to my hometown of Long Beach, which was hit hard during Superstorm Sandy.
Residents are starting to move back as electricity and sewage returns, but many restaurants and businesses remain closed. And many homes (including ours) are still without heat or hot water. I’ve been documenting the devastation and recovery on my photo Tumblr, which I’ve reblogged here, and which I humbly invite you to read. 
Above is a photo of Shines, an Irish Bar on Beech Street that’s become a community center of sorts following the storm. It’s a place where Long Beachers go to charge their phones, to get a hot meal, to order a stiff drink. “Bruised, but not broken.” Indeed.
