Embarrassed by Good Fortune?
As I've mentioned before, we were lucky with Katrina, only minor damage to the house and our lifestyle is pretty much intact. I've read about people like me having "survivor's guilt" and I can see some of it. It's like we are members of the club who skipped hellnight but got our pins anyway. After the storm my firm set up offices in Baton Rouge. My boss spearheaded the effort to open a small office near our usual one. Because of that, I have been spared commuting to Baton Rouge to work. I go up there periodically to drop off or pick up things, and I always feel bad for the people who are making that drive daily--but I'm glad I'm not them.
