Re: “What to do with New Orleans’ Confederate monuments

In 2002, I suggested that these monuments be sold to Slidell or Kenner. Their names are associated with Confederate leaders. Let them make tourist attractions devoted to that aspect of their heritage. Then, perhaps, we can find the resources to honor true New Orleans heroes like André Cailloux and Joseph Savary.

Re: “Nina Compton's Compère Lapin opens for dinner

Compère Lapin stories as transcribed by Alcée Fortier in Louisiana were based on West African Bouki (hyena) folk tales. Compère Lapin tales were then translated into Br'er Rabbit stories in English by Joel Chandler Harris, Fortier's friend, and later appropriated by Walt Disney for Bugs Bunny cartoons. So the trickster survives. By the way, is there any rabbit on the menu?
