Two great blog posts about what's on a lot of peoples' minds: the crime problem and some of the issues that are contributing it.
Cliff writes about the evolution of youth in his blog:
These youngsters are not doing anything we didn’t do when we wore our Ninth Ward hats and had beef with the cats back of town at the house parties. They just have AK-47’s at their disposal.
Mark Folse blogs about growing up on the other end of town
I don’t know how to change this anymore than I know how to take all the folks in Lakeview or Metairie (some my oldest friends) and shake the ingrained racism out of them.
Both are well thought out posts and are worth reading.
