New Orleans Gets New Web Domain, Redesign
Written by  {ga=staffwriters}

Mayor Mitch Landrieu announced the launch of a newly redesigned Web site for the City of New Orleans including a new web address: The redesigned Web site is easier to navigate, provides a wealth of information and is more user-friendly.

“This new website will go a long way in improving residents’ accessibility to information and transparency at City Hall,” said Landrieu. “Everyone who knows and loves New Orleans knows that was not a fitting web address for our town so I’m glad to be changing that too.”

On, web pages most visited and most requested by users will be promoted to the home page including information about the City’s capital and recovery projects, public notices, and a revamped phone directory. Mayor Landrieu also unveiled new social media pages for the City, including Facebook and Twitter profiles.

“This site is a work in progress, but it is certainly a step in the right direction for our city,” said Chief Information Officer Allen L. Square, Jr. “Our team is dedicated to increasing the availability of information to improve decision making for city employees as well as for the citizens of New Orleans.”

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?

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.
