I remember when you could ride from south monroe to bayou bowl in complete safety. Now its just a huge "hood". Tribal Spirits is gone, all the movie theaters are gone, everything that made Monroe monroe from the late 1960's to the late 1990's is gone never to return. In fact the entire state, w/ the exception of a few small pockets, is pretty much gone.

Monroe -gone
Shreveport - gone
Baton Rouge - gone
New Orleans - gone
Lafayette - on its way gone

As I've said before at the current rate of collapse the USA in less than 50 yrs will be so far down the economic ladder it probably will never recover becoming another roman empire.
You said the above in an unrelated thread but Im sure people would like to know why you think this and what your argument is to support it.

I'm guessing that it means that all of those cities are changing , and some of those changes are not for the better . The Baton Rouge that I remember from growing up there is gone . It happens .

Thats what I am hoping he means, but hes so sensationalist he may actually mean he thinks our cities are not worth saving. Im hoping thats not what he means but I want him to explain. I dont see why Louisiana cities would be any worse off than any other states cities.
