How N.O. people feel is NOT the issue . Shopping centers , malls , sidewalks , history , etc. are NOT the issue . YOU claiming to know how 250,000 people feel about N.O. is the issue . And you still haven't backed up your OPINION with FACTS . What you have done succesfuly is muddy the waters . It's what people do when they can't support their position . I'm on to it though . Still waiting , little lady .

And I'm on to you, old timer. You are 52 years old. You probably live in some horrible place like Denham Springs. You probably know nothing about your city, which is why you won't defend it. You keep saying your trying to get my to say how I can know how 250,000 people think. Like I have said, people live where they want to live. It is pretty damn safe to say that people in New York City enjoy skyscrapers, dense living, etc. It's pretty safe to say that people in Miami enjoy beaches, palm trees, latin culture, etc. Don't you get it? Obviously, I haven't interviewed 250,000 people on the issue. No one has. But, you can tell a whole lot about a population by what's there. And, Baton Rouge tells me that its population is a culture-less, country hick, bland American city with absolutely no class. There. That is my opinion. I don't have to back that up because that's my opinion. And, Baton Rouge people hate NO because we get all the glory. There is no fact to back that up. It's my opinion. This is a forum. We exchange thoughts and opinions. I hate people like you who think that because you're 500 years old or whatever that little old college student doesn't know anything. Well, guess what? I'm the one getting a degree. I'm the one using my brain every day. You are the one who probably didn't finish college.

Oh, and people also just complain that the other person doesn't know what they're talking about when they can't form an opinion on the matter or defend their idea.

There really isn't much debate going on. I think we all understand Baton Rouge will never be New Orleans. It simply was designed differently. Baton Rouge was NOT designed to be a major American city. It is not designed to have Fortune 500 companies everywhere, tall buildings, or walkable neighborhoods. I do give BR credit for doing what the people want. People here don't want those things so the city/state doesn't provide for them.

When out of towners come to Louisiana, I think it's fair to say that 90% are coming to New Orleans. Other than Baton Rouge being the Capitol city and having the flagship univeristy (without some professional schools which are in New Orleans), there really is not much going on here.

This makes Baton Rouge anywhere USA.

Baton Rouge does need some serious infrastructure improvements or it will continue to be unable to attract companies here to do business. Better roads, more sidewalks, more public transit. Just my two cents.

It seems the majority of people are for these improvements so I am wondering why the city does not appropriate funds for this purpose?

The pie is divided up into too many pieces . Politics dictate priorities in a lot of cases . When you try to please too many different segments of the population , all will suffer ( except for the politicians of course ) .
