Re: “Is New Orleans crime ‘out of control’?

SPOT ON Mr. Balzac!!!!!
Thank you Mr. Courreges for the #'s that balances RM.
And I'm shallow wrong to only complain and point at RM, when he's forced to peddle gum from his shoes for clicks, while hobbyists hand candy for theirs.
So thanks Mr. Morris for trying....
Generational social stratification ain't got easy black/white fixes with grey statistics to prove?
But the work and words of Jane Jacobs get at the roots-
“To seek "causes" of poverty in this way is to enter an intellectual dead end because poverty has no causes. Only prosperity has causes.”
― Jane Jacobs
Sorry for the preachy, but the more you read up on JJ, the more you will see the solutions I do.

Re: “More layoffs at | The Times-Picayune

Very sorry to those fired- but a positive spin?
I see this 1st in my paper Advocate, click to Kevin and GA for details, and like Newton's 3rd ( for every action, there is an equal and opposite reaction) the greed of the "Dirty" TP makes our market for Journalism better than others with competition-10 years from now?
How do we pay for and expose the twid-marks?
I don't think Jean-Paul is completely wrong- but Woodward + Bernstein + Nixon= resignation won't happen without editors over 40.
Last- your only as good as your research- and Alice Dreger's Book- "Galileo's Middle Finger"- shows what's at risk and why we should all donate to the Len's NOW!!!!

Re: “Longtime businesses closing on Freret Street

After listening to Angela Hill today on CZO issues Nadine Ramsey has pushed-…
and learning 3rd hand Neighbors United…
met and voted to allow for spot zoning to sell singles (?)…
I'm beyond frustrated and very VERY scared NOLA is going dysfunctional again...

Re: “Longtime businesses closing on Freret Street

Yhea it's summer slow news cycle, but what about that states- "Provide context. Take special care not to misrepresent or oversimplify in promoting, previewing or summarizing a story"? I've been on Freret pre and post K, know the context, and expected more..
Is Freret "success inclusive of everyone?"
I LOVE THAT QUESTION!!!!!!! as it means WE DID IT!!!!! RIP Bill Long- lets never forget 1985…
but Frerets finally risen from your ashes and folks like the Webers can cash in, or stay to enjoy with equity. Hopefully... + I have idea/solutions on needed fixes.
THIS DID NOT HAPPEN OVERNIGHT!!! i.e. the past 3 years.
NHS planted the seeds 1990's- zoning made less restrictive post K- and what seem tragic in 2007 with no Main Street or other Gov. assistance (Nagin hated Stacy H....?) forced us to circle the wagons, recruit private investors, open a Market, and go after blight.…
My Family and I doubled down...…
Etc.. Etc.. Etc... and 10k our "success" makes us a target for taggers who paint the "G" word...

Re: “More staff cuts ahead for | The Times-Picayune

And friends don't let friends touch or click on it when it's dirty...
We had "highest rate of readership by population of any paper in a major U.S city" in 2012-…
with the "highest market penetration"…
and they knew it, and with no other competition (at the time) they thought they could carpetbag and run to the bank.
Granted Fox 8 still supports their cause (come on Mr. Benson- shop local!)
but rise of the Lens-
and the fact Newhouse's MBA kids greed blinded them to the massive state of the art printing press sitting under used in Red Stick and the Advocate I reed every AM as one of my best feel goods at 10K.
Love em or hate em- I thank Mr. George for his actions + hiring Kovacks/Shea and the rest.

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

This Artwork hits 10k perfectly and we need more before and there are no refrigerators left on the nuetral ground to decorate or artists who can afford to live here.
Too bad Artist Caroline Thomas will never be recognized by the P-None, P-U, and P.Weeee!! crowd as god forbid- she lives here and paints floats for $....
I say SUCK IT DOUG MCTRASH!!! and @ rest of the tinkle down art economists crowd- Your efforts were/are well intened- but discount and hurt the shop local artists who can't compete your big box and corporate sponsored This Thomas piece is better than anything the Cameron crowd gave us...

Re: “UPDATE: 21 leges side with Big Oil

Sorry but your solutions are not viable,
+ double sorry to site wikipedia at your academics, but an elected AG from Madison Parish is not the answer, and will not file.…
and lets not forget the disgusting actions of his predecessor- Charles Fotti and his politics against health care post K.
Talk is cheap and complaints and what if's are easy...
We need action NOW- and most importantly we need to force partnerships with the O+G- to get the Beltway to see the ROI as saving us now is $ well spent. Or they will pay for it later- oh and by the way our energy built and heated you for the past 80 years...
We need a red tape cutting ceremony that only uses Feds. for E.I. Studies and streamlined (emergency?) Permits- to set loose our locally grown O+G geologists, engineers, and work force all paid in future tax creds and un-capped e-revenue
We loose x/hr- and Gov. solutions SUCK!!! DIY is what we need...
Sorry for the ramble/attack- your opinions are valid, but to get sh*t done- sometimes "laws are like sausage" makes sense and tastes great...
