    That's absolutly not true!

    New Orleans has some awesome neighborhoods outside of the tourist areas. The problem areas are the areas that are 99% Democrats.

    You are right. I shouldn't have said tourist areas, wrong word. There are a lot of very nice neighborhoods in NO. I should have said the nice sections. You have to admit though the bad sections are really really bad, same can be said for Shreveport.

    They're nice because the people are educated, employed, and tolerant of one another. NOLA is one of the most truly integrated cities anywhere. But you already summed up all that......they're democratic. (and independent)

    Ray Nagin is long gone. He went back home to Dallas, Tx.

    Good riddence!

    I was just reading on another site that the second season of the HBO's "Treme" airs April 24th. Anyone interested, that show will shed a little more of an accurate light on the city.
