World Class New Orleans

A site dedicated "to the resurrection of New Orleans, Louisiana. Our rich culture, care for one another, and roll-up-our-sleeves tenacity will lead New Orleans into a new golden era. "...everyone who knows New Orleans loves it because it is the most down-to-earth, real place in the country. There is no poser action in this city. It is the real deal--what you see is what you get."

An hilarious entry about New Orleans' City Hall and Post Traumatic Stress Syndrome

We're still recovering from Katrina and we still know how to laugh every once in a while!

Laissez les bontemps roullez.
