Many Many thoughts
I noticed a commercial for Cox Communications today that struck me as a bit strange. They were tooting there own horns saying they were voted #1 in customer satisfaction. Well I guess #1 out of 1 is pretty good. Aren’t they the only Cable company in New Orleans? I guess that would make them #1 in customer dissatisfaction as well.
I think I know what the smell was wafting through the city the other day. This guy I know used his shop vac to clean the dog crap out of his back yard. He then forgot to empty it and left it in his garage for a few days. I think his eyebrows melted when he opened the garage door.
Someone brought up a good point today on WWL Radio. The topic was about the Mayor’s lack of activity and his constant complaining about how he needs the Feds money to rebuild police and fire stations. One caller asked about the insurance situation. Were the police stations and fire stations insured just like every other building is supposed to be? If so, where is the insurance money to rebuild these offices? If not, why weren’t they insured?
Some residents of Lakeview near the 17th st canal may have their property reclaimed by the Corp. They would be compensated monetarily for this of course. One caller suggested doing the same for areas in Plaquemines and St Bernard. He thought it would be a good idea to deconstruct the levees along the river in a few less populated areas which would allow the river to run free south of St Bernard to naturally refill the wetlands. What do you think of that? I am on the fence of course it’s not my property that would be taken away.
I saw FOX is coming out with an hour long drama series about New Orleans called K-ville. I will watch the first few episodes but the minute one guy from the NOPD starts talking like a fucking Cajun, I’m throwing the tv out of the window. I wonder if Jazz will be swimming around in the background of every scene? Okay Okay, I’ll give it a chance first.
As far as Starbuck’s goes, I can’y really say. La Madeline was there for what seemed like an eternity and they were a chain. Is it because Starbuck’s is so gigantic a corporation the reason some people don’t want them there? The building is a State and Federally recognized historic building, and there are other stores there too. Why are they okay and Starbuck’s not okay? On the other hand, there are a bazillion run down empty buildings in the Quarter that could use a good sprucing up by a corporate entity. Why doesn’t Starbuck’s redo one of those instead? Leave Jackson square alone.
I was bored today and let my brain ooze out a little. Thanks for your support.

we’re gonna do what they say can’t be done.
We’ve got a long way to go and a short time to get there.
I’m east bound, just watch ol’ “Bandit” run.”
