Re: “Scott Angelle, Ascendant

Mr Alford=Great piece on "former Lieutenant Governor" ANGELLE.
Still, lemme ax you one quick question.
To wit: Who ever heard of a Cajun first-named " SCOTT " ?
Please advise. s/ Noel E. PARMENTEL Jr (Algerine expat)

Re: “What is the history of Storyville?

Hey Blake=Unaccountably missing from your Storyville timeline
is legendary New Orleans Mayor Martin Behrman' s classic mot juste .

As noted, during WW I==because of Storyville' s many bordellos==
the Red Light District was closed down by the federal government.
At which point, Hizzonor famously pronounced as follows :
"They can make it illegal, but they can't make it unpopular."

Re: “Seven Mayors of New Orleans: Panel Discussions

I wonder if this interesting series can be extended to include these Seven Mayors
20th Century predecessors. Especially Martin BEHRMAN; Semmes WALMSLEY;
and Robert MAESTRI, each of whom I consider far more interesting than most of
those who followed them.
