Louisiana News & politics focus on Louisiana Governor John Bel Edwards and Louisiana legislature

New Orleans quality of life worsening and Jefferson Parish so boring?

Well, not exactly.  It is accurate to say, based upon latest survey results, New Orleans quality of life has gone down statistically and Jefferson Parish, the city's suburb, favorables so high and static, that it is "boring", numbers-wise.

delery-damage-houseHurricane Isaac has moved on.  Many people were lulled to sleep by the media and led to believe that Isaac would be a wind and rain event, not too bad by tropical storm and Category 1 hurricane standards.  Little did anyone realize that Isaac would not only move onshore just to the west of Greater New Orleans but that he would cause deadly flooding and extensive wind damage for so many people.  Isaac liked South Louisiana a little too much and hung around far too long.

Some protectors of the Confederate monuments have been staying vigilant, in person and online, even surveilling during the wee hours of the morning, waiting for the next Mayor Landrieu attack. On Sunday morning, with protections of snipers, masked workers and a dumbstruck audience, the worst of all of the monuments was cut and carried., the Liberty Monument.
