Tomorrow is election day in New Orleans. My absentee ballot was mailed off weeks ago (I can only hope the USPS got it there). This is the first election antediluvian, and probably the most important since at least reconstruction (maybe ever). It’s obvious at this point that those along the Gulf cannot count on the federal government. Like any municipal election, the basics such as crime, education and infrastructure are at the forefront. But these are magnified in Orleans Parish. The issues of immediate and long term concern are unprecidrented. So, stick with what you got, or throw the bums out, but be involved in the decission. And screw that huggy feel good crap about everyone rallying around whoever wins. The Mayor and all the Council members should have their feet held to the fire. Call them on their bullshit and accept nothing but the best. Fight for your vision of New Orleans.
