Re: “What if It Never Happened?

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.

Re: “Commentary: regulating short-term rentals

One thing I have not seen discussed is regulating based on the number of "units" operated. If an individual only owns ONE home and wishes to rent it or a room for special occasions, that is a lot different than people that own a number of "units" that they manage only as a business.

Re: “Finding Hermann: photographing black New Orleans in the '70s and '80s

Um. Clearly it hasn't faded that bad. Still alive and well in my book.

Re: “As housing prices skyrocket in New Orleans, are miniature houses the answer for homebuyers?

"Board member Tommy Screen said he sympathized with the neighbors' concerns, but the developer's property rights should not be constrained by whether the neighbors liked the design of the house."

Now we know who NOT to vote for.

Re: “Monumental issue

Marx & Lenin waged war on their own people, killing thousands upon thousands. That is the difference.

Re: ““I live next door to an Airbnb"

I can promise Airbnb would not want to hear your complaint. I rented my house during Voodoo via Airbnb and the minute they deposited the money into my account, it was compromised. Tied to my Line of credit, the thieves scarfed up over $1o,ooo. I tried to make AirBnB aware that their website was compromised and... surprise! on their website there is NO address, phone number or any way to reach anyone. I had to go through menu options - that tied all complaints to the renter and got a Bs reply from the member of a forum. Then I got the same form letter repeatedly telling me no to make deals outside Airbnb, which I hadn't. I had to cancel an account I've had for 3o years and pend hours at the bank to get my money back. Boo Airbnb. No way to rate THEM but if you google it, there are many complaints.
