    Nice nostalgia in the clips, commie, thanks. I’ve been having trouble relating to misery outside myself – not just misery, but anything – however the tribulations of New Orleans have always managed to penetrate. The thick, rich history of the place and the ease with which it was discarded leaves a monumental bad taste in my mouth.Which,in turn, adds to the acid reflux I first experienced on 12/05/2000
    (that was the date of SCOTUS ‘ Bush v. Gore ?)
    Needless to say, Big Easy didn’t fit the approved Amurican stereotype, along with the Native Americans and the middle class.

    • I’ve really enjoyed New Orleans every time I’ve been there. It had the feeling of a real, vibrant, living city, with all of the virtues and faults that you would find in such a place, and which are nonexistent in weird confections like Las Vegas or L.A.

      I hope they make it all the way back, but this article makes me wonder about the long-term viability of the place.
