Dear Mr. Rose,
I think you should publish the comments on this article. They say so much.
I loved this column. It says so much.
... Moi? I would still be in NOLA, but I wouldn't be the proud owner of my very own flooded out little hovel. Can you believe BUYING a stinking mould ridden wreck of a home? Rebuilt with no -zero- public assistance -just so I can stay with the one I love. You either understand the need or you don't.
We should only tax CLEAN industries. Petrochemical and other heavily polluting industries should be paid come here.
Actually, every single year, the Thoroughbred Horse Racing Industry throws away tens of thousands of unwanted colts, retired winners, and no longer wanted breeding stock. Fine healthy horses are sold into the horse slaughter pipeline to Mexico or Canada. It's a sick situation. Owners should be forced to commit to lifelong responsibility or ensure humane euthanasia over what so many of these noble beasts are put through.
This is making me all so confused! I mean, I suppose technically I'm a virgin- or am I not?! I may be a 52 year old virGIN! Because... After I was taken to the show in London over Christmas in 1974, the effects of which were forever imprinted on my adolescent brain, I heard a movie had been made; a friend had a magazine showing orgy scenes in a swimming pool. When I returned to LA. in 75, it showed up at the Rebel Theatre on Plank Rd in Baton Rouge. I urged a number of friends to check it out, and managed to finally drag two guys out to the Rebel theatre. We were the only three people in the place, but it was indeed the flic, though sans swimming pool orgy. I heard later about the audience participation that developed into the circus act I hear of today.
I'm definitely down for seeing this movie, yup, exactly 37 years after I saw it last. BUT, I'd definitely need to be well primed, I mean prepared, to "participate", having no idea what that's about.
What a great honor and good karma for our community. Many thanks to those that helped make it happen.
There is more here than meets the eye. I have no wish to harm or discriminate against young women in high school that become pregnant. But in this day and time, where baby Momma's become famous and glamorize teen pregnancy, I can see the point of not allowing this kind of behavior modeling in schools. To be fair, though, the baby Daddys ought to subject to the same "penality".
Turn 'em off. What a waste of money, electricity and light.
I don't know anything about the management of this museum, but I love to go there and hope it survives this little rough patch, The current exhibit, NOLA Now Part II: Abstraction in Louisiana, is superb. The first part was excellent as well. I am looking forward to the next part.
