In an unusual alliance of competitors,officials from Houston, Mobile, Ala., and Tampa, Fla., are cooperating to market their ports to Asian shippers.

I guess it's happening and a part of capitalism. Don't paint us as not caring just because we don't respond to your semi-trolling posts.

I am not trolling since I own property, have family there in New Orleans and care a lot about the city's future. I just want to know have the port threw its hat in the ring

If you have that much invested here you need to think harder before you speak. I can recall a previous post where you said the city was abundant in natural resources (no oil? no gold? no agriculture? below sea level? no natural gas? polluted river thanks to the Midwest?) but had declined due to the laziness of its citizens. Here you say that the people don't care that business is being taken from the port. We're the traditional powerhouse of the South, people are going to gang up on us..we're still huge in shipping. And the example you give is for Asian imports? Our bread and butter is Latin America anyway. I hope the port does more to stay competitive, but the superior impolite tone you take towards our people is not appreciated. I don't say these types of things to folks from Texas. Thank you. Happy New Year.

I apologize if you were offended but my main objective is for the city to regain and stay abreast of the changing market, which will bring jobs, increase the tax base and make the city better.

We're all into supporting the city or we wouldn't be offended by this. It's just mean. I'm sorry you don't see the impropriety in it. A few people on a pretty quiet message board doesn't equal all of New Orleans.

While the situation you brought up makes one question why, I'm sure those running the Port have their reasons as to why they're not joining this alliance. I don't think they're dumb enough to just turn a blind eye to what's going on. I think we'd hear somebody screaming loudly if this were a detriment to the port right now. I would be willing to bet there are numerous people keeping an eye on this.

One citizen alone can only focus on so much. There are bigger problems plaguing us right now. If the Port becomes a big issue, it will certainly have bigger, more widespread support. As for right now, it's just something for those involved to keep a close eye on. It's not yet time for the everyday citizen to be outraged.
