I am in New Orleans the next couple of days. The weather is great. Around 80, sunny, not a lot of humidity. Going to meet a friend for lunch, then a guy for a drink and dinner at Herbsaint tonight.
The weather here is pretty rough from late May to September. But this time of year, and when its bitter cold up north you should book a trip here.
New Orleans isnt just Bourbon Street although thats what its famous for. The reason the town is so funky is because of the history of it.
I have found a lot of cool things to do with kids. Of course, there is the National World War Two Museum too!
The French, Spaniards, Indians, Slaves, and WASPS all came here. Pre Civil War there were more millionaires in New Orleans than anywhere else in the US.
The reason for that was the Big Muddy. There was a lot of commerce going up and down the Mississippi River. The fat cats that controlled the access and movement on that river got rich. With the rise of South America, the potential for New Orleans to boom as a port city is on the horizon.
Reminds me of the internet today in a way-only because its virtual. You can create your own river. The trick is trying to figure out how to build it, get customers to come and engage them in such a way that they want to float down your river and not jump over to the other river.
A lot of people think NOLA is just a party town with a bunch of hicks on the perimeter. But, you might be interested in this. New Orleans is the number one brain magnet in the US.
Today, the citys economy is based on oil. Not a lot different than a city like Houston. As the energy industry grows, NOLA ought to grow too.
Anyway, you ought to plan a trip down here. Katrina is a fatal but now distant memory. I am staying in the warehouse district. There isnt really an analogous part of another city because while it has parts that resemble a Soho (NYC) or Bucktown (Chicago), its still a bit different.

Do you have an ego? Once was a guy in the $ES_F with a badge EGO. Wore it to remind him not to have one.
Groupon and Zynga sitting in a tree ..will they IPO. Yes. Before this year is out I bet.
Some people think the treasuries are overdone to the downside. ($ZF_F) If they are something else is overdone to the upside. ($SPY)
Pure idiocy. Interestingly, very few of the professors have PhDs in economics or finance.
If there are funding issues in Europe, know where to find them. Hint, White months, $GE_F.
This is what Democrats are arguing about in Illinois. Meanwhile, Illinois is Broke.
Maybe I should raise a fund? What do you think?
Free trade pacts clear Congress. One thing that is stupid. Job retraining. Why should the government spend money on job retraining? Its been proven by Labor economists not to work. Better off having the person pay for retraining themselves because whatever they learn sticks with them for life. Obama held these up for three years because of unions.
How much trash will be left behind Friday? Only the rats will benefit from OWS.
Herman Cain is in the lead. Cant believe all the racists in the Republican Party that prefer him.
Totally sad. If you arent reading this blog, you should. He is honest. Keeps getting disembedded by the brass.
Music on Royal Street, New Orleans
The WWII museum is one of the better things about the city. However the political information is tainted by a very heavy PC filter.
NOLA had an oil economy 20+ years ago. That is long gone and never coming back. I think this guy’s been drinking hurricanes and hand grenades on Bourbon St.
Let’s see if I get this author:
I AM a racist if I don’t like & won’t support Barry the Imposter Obama.
I AM a racist if I like & support Herman Cain...& we KNOW where he was born & who his parents were.
Guess this falls into the category: Damned if I do & Damned if I don’t.
I really am not sure what he meant by that, as he gave no explanation
This is sarcasm.
The writer is on our side.
"Black theology will accept only the love of God which participates in the destruction of the white enemy. What we need is the divine love as expressed in Black Power, which is the power of black people to destroy their oppressors here and now by any means at their disposal".--James (Jim) Cone,
African American Religious Thought: An Anthology (Paperback)
by Cornel West (Editor), Eddie S. Glaude Jr. (Editor)
SEAN HANNITY: But Reverend Jeremiah Wright is not backing down and has not for years and in his strong stance on the teaching of black liberation theology is nothing new. He had the same things to say last spring when he appeared on "Hannity & Colmes:"
WRIGHT: If you're not going to talk about theology in context, if you're not going to talk about liberation theology that came out of the '60s, systematized black liberation theology that started with Jim Cone in 1968 and the writings of Cone and the writings of Dwight Hopkins and the writings of womynist theologians and Asian theologians and Hispanic theologians, then you can't talk about the black value system.
HANNITY: But I'm a reverend
WRIGHT: Do you know liberation theology, sir?
Malik Zulu Shabazz, chairman of the New Black Panther Party for Self-Defense (NBPP):
"We believe in a Black first philosophy and a Black Liberation Theology."
Although it [The New Black Panther Party] says it sees capitalism as the fundamental problem with the world and revolution as the solution, the new party does not draw its influences from Marxism or Maoism as the original party did. Instead, in a carefully-worded, roundabout form of ethnic nationalism, they say that Marx based his ideology and teachings on indigenous African cultures, and that the NBPP therefore need not look to Marxism or Maoism as a basis for their program, but can look to ideologies that stem directly from those African origins.
"The Justice Department originally brought the case against four armed men who witnesses say derided voters with catcalls of "white devil" and "cracker" and told voters they should prepare to be "ruled by the black man." ..."
One poll watcher called police after he reportedly saw one of the men brandishing a nightstick to threaten voters.
As I walked up, they closed ranks, next to each other, the witness told Fox News at the time. So I walked directly in between them, went inside and found the poll watchers. They said theyd been here for about an hour. And they told us not to come outside because a black man is going to win this election no matter what.
He said the man with a nightstick told him, Were tired of white supremacy, and he starts tapping the nightstick in his hand. At which point I said, OK, were not going to get in a fistfight right here, and I called the police....
"Security" patrols stationed at polling places in Philly:

Thats funny, there still seems to be an awful lot of oil coming out of there.
And with a few policy changes there could be a very great deal more.
Uhh, dear, Big Muddy properly applies to the Missouri River.
Which never had anything like the volume of traffic on the Mississippi.
Sounds like he’s being a little sarcastic to me.
[However the political information is tainted by a very heavy PC filter.]
Yeah, won’t even say “coon ass.”
What a terribly disconnected article.....
Which was pioneered in the 1930's by Commie-symp scribbler/slanderer Drew Pearson as the "back-of-the-speeding-cab" style.
Emblematic of people in a hurry to nowhere.
Yes, there is a lot of geology to be looked at afresh with new fracture-completion techniques. The Smackover Formation, e.g., is an oil-rich source rock that also received gas charges from the Norphlet Formation below (the Norphlet is the big producer in Mobile Bay and the Florida Panhandle offshore). The Smackover is a dense brown lime that might be susceptible of frac techniques; it has already produced great volumes of conventional oil, some of it from Jay Field located close to, or under, the Florida-Alabama state line.
There are other trends as well that need to be evaluated, and the Black Warrior Basin to the north in Alabama.
Some of the Appalachian Paleozoic trends (the Marcellus Shale) may extend through the Alabama Hills southwestward into the subsurface of central Alabama beneath the coastal plain and over into Misssissippi where the (buried) Appalachians swing around westward under the Mississippi Valley and are exposed again in Arkansas as the Boston (Ozark) Mountains and in Oklahoma as the Arbuckle Hills.
I was thinking offshore, but what you say makes sense also.
