New Orleans has been having an endless and rather tiresome debate over a proposed noise ordinance. What should have been a technical discussion has turned into a shouting match over which side is more highly evolved and moral. There have been allegations of threats, intimidation, and general nastiness. It sounds like pulp fiction, which is why I posted it today.
The killer quote comes from an article in the New York Times by Campbell Robertson:
With the goal of a revised citywide ordinance delayed, the city, like a bachelor party without a plan, decided to start with Bourbon Street.
