You sir know absolutely nothing of our city and our rebuilding. Before you present yourself as an idiot before the world, please oh, please take the time to educate yourself about our fair city. You obviously have the internet, so use it.
I am so sick of ignorant assholes who have never set foot into New Orleans pontificate from their elevated stools about how we-(the citizens) live and work. Our culture is like no other in America, and here is a clue: We DON'T want to be like the rest of you!!! We don't want malls and Chuck E Cheese's. We created Jazz, and harboured writers, artists, playwrights and great musicians. It is a living , breathing, ecology that has been living for over 300 years. So fuck you. Remember, people in Iowa and Nashville have floods too, and ya know what, I have an embittered attitude toward them because of comments like yours. I say to myself: "Fuck them!! They are the ones to told us not to live here. Ha Ha!!"
When Americans of all stripes start to have RESPECT for each other we will become a better nation. Until then if you live in another part of America, and have a natural disaster and want help, "Tough Shit" for you from us in St Bernard Parish.
