Police kill man in standoff over FEMA trailer

Police kill man in standoff over FEMA trailer

Man, I knew that guy. We weren't good friends, but I worked with him for a while.

It's always a bit of a shock to see a name you know in a story like this.

Kinda sad, too. When I knew him, he was a little crazy in a normal within-the-boundaries sort of way, but I never imagined this.

This isn't the first time this has happened to me. One time I saw a roommate's face on the front page of the Times-Picayune, wanted by the FBI under a different name. Talk about a shocker.

There are others. One that happened in high school borders on the paranormal, but I'll save that for another time.

Is there much of a chance I would've met him? Did he have a nickname, 'cause the name rings no bells.

I knew him when you were living on Dublin Street. He used to work with me at PANO, in that office building by the levee, the one Trent Reznor bought.

I used to see him in that area now and again, so you could have easily crossed paths with him, but I don't think you knew him. Not through me, anyway.
