I was born in the heart of N.O. and the city that I knew and loved is dead and gone. I don't know who to blame more... Blank-o, Nagin, Dollar-Bill Jefferson, Landrieu, etc. or the *ssholes who keep awful people like that in office. As things stand now, HELL would freeze over before I'd go back and give that city a single red cent. Things would have to change big time down there first - and no stupid little catchy slogan is gonna do that. Ya hear me, Mitch???
Easy...Blame the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers. They destroyed New Orleans with their incompetence in designing and building the levees. It still surprises me after 16 monthes how little people on these boards know about what really happened in New Orleans. Or what is going on now. All you people see are the winers and slugs on the main stream media and think all people here are like them. They are not. Most people are struggling every day just to get back to some form of normalcy. The crime you see on TV in ENTIRELY black on black crime perpertrated over terf wars and drugs except one white women who was murdered by a black intruder into her house. All the crime is happening in a rather small part of town.New Orleans is no more dangerous than any other big city but you wouldn't know it by watching TV. Give New Orleans a chance to survive for crying out loud. We are not all criminals and welfare slugs.
