Is this how we are viewed by outsiders?

    As an outsider, I have to say, yeah. We hear a lot more about violence and corruption than about anything positive that must be happening. But, I think there is also a distinct realization that New Orleans and New Orleanians haven’t been given a fair shake before, during or since Katrina, and we on the outside feel really bad about that.

    I’m certain it is. And why wouldn’t we be viewed that way?

    Truth hurts don’t it?

    This cartoon is bullshit! Everyone knows flies can’t talk, even New Orleans flies.

    I laughed like a fool when I saw it. Yeah it’s how we’re viewed. Pretty close to the truth in some respects

    I think the Zydeco music in the background is an especially nice touch. Does this mean we all have street cred just for living here? I mean, we should.

    Shit, man, this is how we are viewed by insiders, too. I made jokes along those same lines after Nagin’s “two edged sword” comment.

    The point is, that’s how our mayor views us. If we were trash, we’d have more money spent on us via Msr. Torres; to Ray, we’re just product for his next campaign.

    As much as I agree with the cartoon and appreciate it, there are other more prosaic views out there and I appreciae them as well.

    That cartoon summed up Ray Nagin. He would have a hard time running a snow ball stand. Running for office and then doing something are tow very different things.
