Re: “The Stinky Cheese Man and Other Fairly Stupid Tales

This was a favorite book when my sister & I were growing up. A great show for the young at heart to share with the young ones.

Re: “Dillard, Duke and the debate

I totally disagree with David Duke & his past & present beliefs. That said, I do applaud Dillard for hosting a debate where the candidates could present themselves even if their viewpoints were so radically different from ours. Dillard students are an amazing group of people & their protests show that they aren't going to let anyone decide for them.

Re: “Commentary: A closer walk with Pete

My grandfather was a fan of Pete's from the early days in New Orleans. I grew up hearing stories about how he'd go to places & listen to Pete play. We have truly lost a gentleman & musician that inspired many to follow their dream. Heaven will surely be a lively place now. I can see Pete leading a Second Line as he steps through the gates of Heaven.

Re: “Is it helpful to have presidents and presidential candidates visit the communities affected by the Louisiana floods?

I think sending resources is much better than making the affected areas have to stop everything to provide a safe visit for some elected official. If they want to see how real it is, watch CNN or some other news. If you come, be like Jimmy Carter, roll up your sleeves, grab a hammer & get to work!

Re: “Doggy fashion show Bad to the Bone: Rescued on the Runway returns Sept. 17

What a great event. My family is involved in dog rescue so I'm glad to see more events to raise awareness of the need for adopting or fostering these animals. There are some great pets just waiting for someone to love & be loved.

Re: “Interview: Sonya Thomas, competitive eater

She is better than I am. Just the thought of slurping down multiple dozen oysters in 10 minutes has me cringing. Good luck to her. I believe I'll take my time & enjoy a dozen with crackers & sauce.

Re: “Fried Chicken Festival added to the New Orleans fest schedule

Can't wait to see which restaurants will be included. What a change for a city that once had no decent fried chicken places. Sounds like a fun event & my mouth is already watering.

Re: “The Count: the hourly wage one needs to make rent for a two-bedroom apartment in Orleans Parish $18.52

Trying to find an affordable place to live is as hard as finding a safe place to live these days. Wages won't go up & rents won't come down. I understand that property taxes & insurance rates drive landlord expenses up but something has to give so people can afford to stay in the city where they work.
