Re: “The New New Orleans, Part One:
Sadith Paz

Plus ca change -- I'm just finishing Lawrence Powell's wonderful "Accidental City: Improvising New Orleans," which recounts how the French settlers resented the Spanish arrivistes, and the Spanish resented the Americans, and the Americans who had come during the French and Spanish eras resented the Americans who only streamed in after the Louisiana Purchase.....

Re: “Rose—Colored Glasses

This is a nice Lundi Gras present!

I really missed Chris Rose in all the T-P Saints coverage -- I can't stand football but his Saints stories always conveyed the hopes and fears of a true fan so well that I gained an appreciation for the team, even though I still think the NFL is a bore.

Looking forward to reading this column regularly.

Super story. I listen to "Soul Power" over the internet whenever I can. Love the Soul Sister!

Re: “The banh mi is New Orleans' po-boy for the 21st century

I used to get a tofu po'boy about once a week at Pho Tau Bay Express on Tulane, pre-K. The best gourmet bargain ever. I sure miss them, the vegetables had the perfect crunch and I swear you could catch a buzz from the hot sauce. And it was always so nice to see Tuyet, I miss her a lot as well. There are some good banh mi here in Austin but Pho Tau Bay Express set the standard!

Re: “Did you know there used to be a Chinatown in New Orleans?

Are there photos of the old Chinatown establishments? That area really turned into a wasteland of hideous commercial buildings, although it was cool that the Asian influence returned in a small way with the Vietnamese restaurant Purple Roses. Their Chinese buffet was just the usual Americanized stuff but the Vietnamese was good, and the mom of the family made the best spring rolls. Did they ever open another restaurant after the storm?
