    If the Iberville housing development is ever razed, do you think they should rebuild Storyville?

    Anyone who lives in the Nola area should know about Storyville. if not, look here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Storyville There would be tremendous opposition from the existing downtown merchants to building a new "entertainment district" on the site of the Iberville, and particularly from the ones in the French Quarter. That doesn’t mean they want the Iberville to continue as it currently is, but wouldn’t want the direct competition. Note that the city considered locating the Arena (the basketball dome next to the Superdome) on the site, but it ended up in its current location because construction costs were much less as the Superdome’s air-conditioning system could be co-used by the Arena.

    What Recession?

    Is it really all in our mind? What an amazing event, the Inauguration of the 44th President of the United States and the first African American in the White House. So monumental was this moment that over 2 million Americans huddled in The National Mall on a cold winter morning in Washington DC just so they could say to their children in years to come, ‘I was there’. Trains, planes, cars and over 10,000 busses ferried some 4 million average Americans into town. 13,000 ‘Port A Potty’s’ were set up in the National Mall ready for the crowd. 90 military high school bands and community groups turned out for the…

    How did the New Orleans Saints lose tonight to the 3-12 Buccaneers? what the heck is happening to the Saints?

    Now the New Orleans Saints have back to back losses now, but what is more atrocious is that they lost tonight to Tampa Bay, who is 3-12, c’mon!!!!. I don’t think the Saints are Super Bowl Contenders anymore now. personally I did not see the game, I woke up late, anyway, what is up with the Saints? Do the Saints have any key Injuries? They are still SB contenders. The reason they lost was either: A) Not caring. They’re in the playoffs…so why not take it easy? B) They got cocky. Maybe they do care, and just went in cocky playing Tampa Bay.
