You gave me your family history and then said that it is most definitely not for everyone...which I already stated. The OP will love it or hate it.

I can understand that, I think it's all relative to what we're used to. If I had to move to Baton Rouge or anywhere different from N.O. I would be uncomfortable too until I got used to everything. I can see the diff. coming from BR. Personally I couldn't live in Louisiana if I were anywhere but NOLA, me.

I visited NO several times. I loved it. Just didnt experience the tourist area's. Actually explored every bit of it (at least what you can in a week). Same problems in any other large metro area city. We even wandered into the more rural area's of the state. Very fascinating.

Because NOLA is so different than any other US city (like San Fran and Miami-but no others can really make that claim) so I'd agree that even for a few months, just about anyone could learn a thing or two from time spend in NOLA...it's a one of a kind place and YES-hard to just sorta kinda like it...you love or hate the place at some point!

Yes, it was. I'd say that much of South Louisiana is fairing well economically (relative to many other areas of the country) due to the oilfield. There's an extremely large and complex network of support industries for the oilfield. Many, many, many people are either employed directly in the field, or they're in fields that are indirectly, but heavily impacted by, the oilfield. However, with the current events in the Gulf, who knows what's next?

And before the nay-sayers begin popping off about how bad it is right now, I'm currently out on the West coast. Here, neither the mining industry, the technology industry, the alternative energy industry nor the tourism/gambling industry have the same ability to support the state as the oilfield does for LA. We're all quick to demonize the oilfield, especially "Big Oil". But the truth of the matter is that, even in spite of it's faults, it's the crutch that has the state propped up right now.
