There are times when I wish the rest of the world would forget about Katrina and just let us be normal again. This is one of those times:
New Orleans became a blank slate after Hurricane Katrina struck in 2005. And ever since, entrepreneurs have rushed in to experiment with new ideas for building and running a city.
Blank slate? Fuck you NPR and Debbie Elliott who is probably a well meaning, albeit misguided, lefty. There is no such thing as a community as a blank slate; especially not a city as enamored of its history, culture and as set in its ways as New Orleans. The blankety blank blank slaters are a bunch of hipster posers who mostly have *bad* ideas and bail out as soon as the going gets tough.
