The sad thing about it, is that New Orleans today is like the 3rd
world. And so are several areas in the south US.
The infrastructure is 90% of what makes the difference. And the things
that happens in the 3rd world happens there as well. This is an
opportunity for US to do something for it's own citizens. No country
in the world offered help to America in this situation as of yet. All
the generousity of America and still thats what they get for it. Thats
a shame because some humanitary attitude could be shown.
Poor New Orleans. Farewell. Now I'm going to listen to some New
Orleans 1920's Jazz.
I'm thankful to this excellent group that I feel now is even more
important, as we really know and dig a lot of the New Orleans culture
