I'm guessing now more "clicks" for The Advocate.

Re: “"Who needs neighbors when we've got brunch?" New Orleans artists respond to Airbnb

>push out the creative class.<

What a trite, elitist and shopworn phrase that is. The issues of the "creative class" aren't what concern me, but rather the issues of the dishwasher in restaurants, the truck driver who delivers goods in the city or the nurses aid or lpn who helps you in a hospital. I'm not too worried about the "creative" folks. I'm more concerned about whether the people who empty your bed pans will be able to live and work in the city.

Re: ““I live next door to an Airbnb"

wolfberg: So how many housekeepers, front desk staff, bell people and the rest do you hire? Ah..none at all.

>I use it to pay my mortgage/bills< Sounds like perhaps you bought more house than you could truly afford.

That Marriot hires local people to work in those hotels. They take their paychecks and spend the money locally.

Re: “Rampart/St. Claude streetcar line is met with resistance at community meeting

@Louis Crispino: Right...there are so many attractions like that on Rampart Street. Outside of Congo Square and the Mahalia Jackson theater there is precious little there that would attract tourists except to just "go for a ride" on the thing. Wait! Maybe the streetcar can be used to go get a po-boy from Gene's on the corner of Elysian Fields! And I've never known that the streetcar was *defiantly* used or not used. An anger issue perhaps?

This is just something to amuse the tourists.
