    Here's a link to the entire 10 minutes of taxpayer money pissed down the drain. It appears the lady in blue is the coordinator of this "event" as she asked for rules to be suspended so this could happen.

    Demographics is a bitch. You don't have a real motivated, intelligent populace.. Reference Katrina... The Man is still being blamed for that natural disaster and the failure of the citizens to get the hell out when instructed to.. Unless the government is giving it out, they aren't getting it.. The best known thing about Louisiana is the party of drunken stupidity culminating with the cops on horseback clearing the streets of all the stumbling drunks and degenerate pick pockets..

    Unless debauchery and drunkenness is one hell of a money maker, I don't expect LA to be one of the power players in the great places to live department, oil riches aside.

    Now, Lacarnut, I've always enjoyed your posts, and you're definitely a chip off the old block if you're in LA, but I always assumed your La meant L.A.. Sorry to hear that it's LA..

    The video in question pretty much sums up what I think of when I think of Louisiana.. That and an Army buddy of mine with the most hellacious accent that was from the durty souf.... He was a hoot to listen to! I traded that guy a 250 cc Ninja for a 1979 Datsun 280Z.... He probably rode that motorcycle all the way from Arizona to N'olens with a dip in his cheek...

    Honestly - line up everyone involved with this and SHOOT THEM.
    Stand up for what is right, even if you have to stand alone.

    It's N'Awlins. I know that it's difficult for a non-New Orleanian to fully comprehend the bastardization of 2 simple words into a word only a local would understand.

    But then again, while you probably go grocery shopping, a "yat" is making groceries.

    While you go too your mom's home to visit, a "yat" will "go over by my mama's". Never go to, it's always over by, got it?

    There aren't a whole lot of things this yat misses about N'Awlins, but I do miss it's language. It's so unique.

    I am glad I live in Baton Rouge, LA rather than a shit-hole like L.A. Since Katrina, my house value has almost doubled, property taxes are extremely low and cost of living is much lower. Since I am retired, my property taxes have been frozen for the last several years. The economy is good and unemployment is less than 6%. The people are friendly and we have the best food in the US.

    As far as what you have seen on TV about Katrina and Bourbon St in N.O., those are just a minute pictures of the city/state. The French Quarter is for tourists and suckers in my opinion. I used to go to N.O. years ago to watch and listen to Jazz and eat at an outdoor cafe on a Sunday afternoon in the French Market area. Many tourists and locals would rather go to Riverwalk, Aquarius of the America, the Zoo, N.O. Jazz Fest, paddlewheel dining with music, or go shopping at tax free zones rather than get bombed in the French Q. or piss money away at the Casino. All depends what you are looking for. Most of those dumb ass drunks you speak of during M.G. are from out of state. Looks like a money making machine for the city.

    BTW, where do you live?

    I live in the People's Republic of Communist Massachusetts, and believe me, this crappy state has its faults, too.. . I'd rather live in LA than here any day of the week, as long as I was in a nice neighborhood and not near all that Katrina mess. I was raised in Tennessee, and I love the family values of the Midwest/South.. Up here in the Godless Northeast, it's a disgusting bastion of liberalism and Obama worshippers. Being a Libertarian here is about as productive as being one at <insert institution of higher learning of choice>.
    And I'll admit that it wasn't fair of me to make a generalization about the entire state off of the coverage of Katrina, but those Creole folk sure have some funny ways...
