Re: “Public Transit Tuesdays: Lake Forest

Loved this! But how can the RTA bus driver complain when he is clearly just as incompetent. I'm sure I wouldn't have been his fault if he had hit a kid. Your snowballs always make me miss home especially when you began to talk of the flavors and ice texture.

Re: “Public Transit Tuesdays: Avondale

"Passe Blanc", candy, carousel clocks and vaginal tightness all in an artical about Avondale. Who would have known?

Loved the trip, and the explanation to the world of what it means to "Passe". To my knowledge my generation is amongst the darkest of my paternal family's tree. While I don't know much about that side, I do know that quit a few of them (including some not-so-distant family members) moved to LosAngels to pass for white. I think its amazing that they are still in denial of who they are.

Re: “Somethin' Else Cafe

I can't wait to try Somethin' Else Cafe' on my next visit to Da City. It seems like the newist place to eat, yet retaining the traditions to OUR food.

Re: “Public Transit Tuesdays: Marigny-Bywater

Omg Megan this is by far my favorite ride. I love this. You know I read weekly and I'm honored to say my fellow Ron Eagle Alumni has achieved such an accomplishment. I brag on you post weekly. For me your trip are reminders of what used to be and introductions to what now is in New Orleans. As a out of town reader, Public Transit Tuesday gives me a weekly dose of New Orleans. Since I can't get to the city as often, I find this blog to be very helpful. I love love that you write this as if you are talking to us on a personal level. Once again, I this.

Re: “Public Transit Tuesdays: Metairie Road

Prior to Katrina, I worked at a local grocery store in this area. So I can definitely relate to your hesitation with traveling to that neighborhood. I've experienced have money thrown at me, old white women would come in with gloves on to avoid being touched, and people would avoid asking me for help if a white person was availabe. I am proud to see that neighborhood has changed to be less racially uptight. I also agree with Ms. Chetta and tell my clueless husband about soaking beans, it is a must, if you want them to cook down right ;)

Great article Megan, keep up the good work.
