Landrieu Says Recovery In Full Gallop Despite Lower Census
Written by 

New Orleans Mayor, Mitch Landrieu, released a statement today that did not mention the lower than expected census numbers but did strike a note that the city would continue rebounding from recent events such as Katrina.  Landrieu described New Orleans's recovery is in "full gallop". 

The 2010 Census count determined that the New Orleans population is 343,829 people. An interim Census count last year found the city's population standing at about 355,000.

By comparison, in the 2000 Census, New Orleans’s population was 484,674 people.

As a result of the census results, the area will be negatively affect regarding redistricting and federal dollars.

Landrieu said in his written statement:

“Our progress has always been much bigger than a population number. Today, our recovery is in a full gallop. Billions of dollars of investments are hitting the ground.  We are redesigning the criminal justice system from the ground up.  Our schools are being transformed into centers of excellence where every kid has an opportunity to get a quality education.  And our health care delivery system has been hailed as a national model.

“Over five years after Hurricane Katrina, our story is one of redemption and resurrection. We are not rebuilding the city we were, but creating the city we want to become, brick by brick and block by block.

“Accurate Census estimates in future years will ensure that city government and local non- profit organizations will have the federal funds necessary to provide our growing population with important services.”

mass2On July 4, 1778, George Washington doubled liquor rations for the soldiers quartered in Princeton, NJ, as a way to celebrate Independence Day. It’s fitting, therefore, that the Fourth of July is America's top-selling beer holiday, according to the Beer Institute. It estimated, in 2013, that sales of beer on the 4th could total $1 billion, doubtlessly higher today. “In moderation,” claims a CA brewery investor, Grover McKean, “beer is tasty and healthy.” Who could disagree?

joe mikaAs Donald Trump faces the top world leaders this week, including a face-time with Vladimir Putin, and as his healthcare proposals face an uphill climb, his poll numbers for how the nation views him could be better.

According to a morning Consult/Politico poll released Wednesday morning, his tweets, including that against MSNBC's Mika Brzezinski, and his personality are not helping him, at all.

indy dayII know the calendar says we are approaching the 4th of July, but, it just doesn’t feel like Independence Day.

Perhaps it should.  It’s hot as heck.  The airlines have been packed. The hot dogs are ready for grilling.  The umps are saying, "play ball". The patriotic activities are scheduled. The fireworks are ready-for-blasting. 

Yet, it just doesn’t feel like independence day.

bill rights2To President Thomas Jefferson, July 4th celebrated more than the signing of the Declaration of Independence. He thought it was a link to the future. The message prominent colonists sent to King George III led to the Constitution and the Bill of Rights, the initial and most prominent feature of which is the First Amendment that guarantees free speech. It’s part of the country’s fundamental essence that each man and woman can say what they feel about government, or anything else, proving President Donald Trump needs some civics lessons.
