As another former resident of NO who reads everything Chris puts out there, I'd have to say this DOES give that "particular slant on life in New Orleans." Since I can't be there in body, Chris brings me back in soul.
This particular piece brings back so many of those soft NO nights watching the kids play, though for me it was more often baseball than football, but it doesn't matter -- it's another CR slice of life, and doing the daddy thing at the playground is just as much a part of that life as griping about politicians and celebrating Saints wins.
For residents or ex-pats, every week Chris provides a window on a piece of the NO world -- some familiar, some less so, some funny, some scathing, some poignant. All brilliant, and all completely necessary for this ex-pat.
