No need for the die-hards to dispute this because deep down you can love this state and STILL admit to the many many problems we have.

If you're thinking of moving here you need to seriously reconsider.

Well, I re-considered it several years ago, for many of the reasons on here. But the city is suffering the problem of too much growth, which is a shared problem with many cities.

Way more than just too much growth.

The children in Louisiana have a poor quality of life and it's shameful.

Too much growth? Are you aware that New Orleans lost population?

Have I not read, even in this forum, that the city has been getting inundated with people moving in for the past several years, causing rents and the home market to spiral? And when I was last there in '16 we also noticed quite a difference.

Unless I missed something rents are not spiraling they are skyrocketing. That said anyone who thinks that (aside from the obvious tax implications) home values rising is a bad thing is crazy.

Rents have since cooled off. Home prices are still really high. But it's not the population, its the type of population, people who gentrify and drive up costs in once poor and middle class areas.
