I returned to New Orleans two weeks before Katrina hit. I had joined the Marine Corps in the 80's and had moved back home for good in August, 2005. When it hit and after being stuck in the city for four days I said to myself 'One day I'll be able to look back and laugh at this whole thing'. That day has not come nor will it ever. After we were let back into the city I found an efficiency apartment on Esplanade. Back then, if you didn't eat dinner by 8:00 you went to bed hungry. One evening I noticed it was past that time and I was angry that I didn't get to eat. Then I looked out of my window and saw the ghosts of those who perished in the storm and flood waters. I counted myself as one of those lucky enough to be hungry.
I'm not buying it, Cynthia. Your actions proved to be a disservice to the citizens of New Orleans and you should be held accountable. We will remember this when election day comes. Do yourself and the citizens a favor and start looking for work elsewhere.
Who cares?? You all act like there's gonna be a gangster-style blood bath Blood/Crip style. Give it a rest! All this misdemeanor talk is nonsense. Like throwing crap from a moving vehicle (floats) onto the street where it becomes litter isn't a misdemeanor! Get a grip, people.
IKEA... "typically needs a population of approximately 2 million people within a certain trade area to support one store," says company spokesperson Joseph Roth. It also requires 15 to 30 acres for its warehouse-sized, multi-level stores, which comprises hundreds of thousands of square footage. Roth says, "Currently, New Orleans does not meet that standard."
Wait a minute- What about the Six Flags location in New Orleans East? Wouldn't that location meet IKEA's needs? It's halfway between Orleans and St. Tammany parishes which would bring more shoppers.
The absolute best donuts in the city!
