Re: “Which was the first restaurant in New Orleans to serve crayfish and when?

Crayfish? How did a Cajun, raised on the bayou give birth to a Yankee?

Re: “Blake Pontchartrain: Earhart Expressway

The questions in the title were ridiculous. There's an exit that puts you right into Elmwood. The expressway ends and becomes a surface street in Leonidas/Mid City.

Re: “Hey Blake, When were French and Spanish no longer the predominant spoken languages in New Orleans?

I think the second half of the article is missing.

Re: “What happens at the Tennessee Williams/New Orleans Literary Festival?

If you look toward Montagut Street from the N. Robertson railroad viaduct, you can still see a big water tower with a very old 7-up logo painted on the side of it.

Re: “How much of the New Orleans area and surrounding areas was flooded by the hurricane of 1947?

Hey Blake,
Thanks for always referring to our airport as Moisant Airport (now known as...).

Nothing against Louis Armstrong, but John Moisant was an aviator and he died where our airport is located and as far as I'm concerned, Moisant is the only legitimate name for our airport.

Keep up the good work and don't let people forget where Moisant Airport is!
