New `family' emerges in one New Orleans hotel

Only seven of them are left in the Dauphine Orleans Hotel: Ed Keyes and his mom, Christine; Bill the waiter; Aaron and Melissa; Reese; and Wayne the tattoo artist, former biker and since the night of the storm ex-coke addict. Disasters destroy families, but sometimes they create them, too. A strange, strange family is growing here, in a dark hotel in the French Quarter. Its not fancy, but its comfortable and gracefully built, with four floors, a decent library and 111 rooms, empty but for a handful.
