The city is doing very well. It is different, but the same. It has more energy than the pre-Katrina NOLA. Yes, there is more work to be done, but there always will be. What neighborhood are you from?
Sep 5th 2007 7:47PM So you think the people of the GulF South are too stupid to understand insurance. That is why federal judges, Congressmen, Senators, and even insurance salesmen got NOTHING from their coverage. You better wake up America from your slumber and respect your fellow citizens more. And for those who want to desert their fellow citizens, I am calling you what you are- traitors. I use to think it was ignorance on the part of my fellow citizens, but I don't anymore. Now I know it for what it is - greed.
Aug 10th 2007 8:22PM It is a very good article, but read the comments if you want Florida to secede from the nation.

I don't know what is happening in Washington DC but I can tell you on the ground here in southern LA and MS we have seen incompetence arrogance and ineptitude. But who am I to say? I just pay those big wigs in the government's salary. Who am I to complain that they don't know what the heck they are doing?
Apr 19th 2007 10:37PM I am a New Orleanian and I want to thank the Edge from the bottom of my heart for his help for our musicians. He is right in that it is a culture, not a business. We would be lost without music. We would not be New Orleans. The survival of my city and my culture has been my fight over the last 19 months. America in many ways has moved on, but the people that love music have not forgotten us and for that I will eternally be grateful. Thank you sir!

No. It just showed us that Harry Lee's ego was more important to him that the future of Louisiana. Just one of the MANY frustrating factors of living here. The only thing worse than living here is NOT living here. I would surely be heartbroken not to be at least close to New Orleans. I will forever be thankful to Spike Lee for letting New Orleanians tell there own story, without the political fanatics from the right and the left twisting the city citizen's travail for their own purposes. I have bought the DVD and I am waiting for its delivery. Thank you Spike for documenting their heartache and their brave humor in the light of such unbelievable obstacles.
Aug 11th 2006 8:45AM Thank you for not forgetting the horrible state of my hometown New Orleans. It is people like you that give me faith in this country. Certainly, the government does not. Here is another way people can help.
