Re: “What if It Never Happened?

Dear Mr. Rose,
I think you should publish the comments on this article. They say so much.
I loved this column. It says so much.

... Moi? I would still be in NOLA, but I wouldn't be the proud owner of my very own flooded out little hovel. Can you believe BUYING a stinking mould ridden wreck of a home? Rebuilt with no -zero- public assistance -just so I can stay with the one I love. You either understand the need or you don't.

Re: “New Orleans: Can we talk about talking at concerts?

I told a friend about repeatedly glaring at this woman with one of those shaker egg things obliterating the delightful nuances of Michael Skinkus at an acoustic show. The friend replied, Oh no, I flat out tell them, "I didn't pay to listen to you".
Bingo! I have used this phrase more than once to great effect. I'm nice. I say "Excuse me but..."
it gets the point across.
And... don't try to pin this on New Orleans. I had the same experience listening to a band in a club elsewhere when I was on vacation.

Re: “Blake Pontchartrain: What’s the story of Belle Chasse?

All before the 1927 flood and the extensive levee system, I wonder how much of that time sugar cane land is under water now?

Re: “Commentary: Paging Dr. Cassidy — move on

Why should he turn his hand to something else? Why should a physician become a politician anyway? For the guaranteed retirement cheque? prestige? power? With his medical background, why is he not targeting INSURANCE companies and PHARMACEUTICAL companies if he wants to improve healthcare in this country? Does he accept money from their lobby groups? Sure he does.

Re: “New Orleans previews bike sharing system coming in fall 2017

Perhaps NOLA can learn from successful bike programs, as well. In D.C., one has the choice of a 1 day or 3 day membership: ($8. & $16. respectively). That buys into the program. After that, if you the bike is returned to a rack within 2 hours, there is NO additional charge. So one can rent a bike, get to one's destination, like a museum or shop, park the bike, stay as long as desired, then take another bike for the next leg. That would be a lot more useful and less expensive than having to pay an hourly rate, especially since many rides between attractions will take only minutes, not an hour. Also, by parking the bike back in a rack after getting to one's destination, the rider does not have to worry about securing the bike or finding a place to park it.

Better yet, don't go. They can have it. Who needs the dirty looks on a happy day.
