Nothing like what'd you find anywhere else. You'd have to see for yourself.

I was on Oak St one day and next thing you know a couple of Tulane students stroll by on a homemade wooden chariot pulled by a 20-30 year old small motorcycle. It was quite the sight.
That's Uptown preppy.

That is a wonderful description and affectionate (I think? =)) observation. Thanks for sharing it.

You see things like this at least once a week in this city. It keeps things interesting, and sets it apart from other cities. If you live in this city for a while, whether you like it or not, you will miss these things if you go somewhere else. It has it's problems, but it is definitely not boring.

Yeah it was really awesome to see. Those kinds of things are why I love New Orleans so much.

My oldest daughter graduates college in one more year. I hope she stays close by, but I know her opportunities might be somewhere else. I'm proud that she got to spend her high school and college years down here, and if she leaves, I'm proud that this is the place she will call "back home". Those little things are lifetime memories, and as you get older, those are the things that stick with you.

I wish I could say that. I feel like NOLA is my true home, where I belong. I'm leaving Baton Rouge again, somewhere BIG, but I think I'll come back and live in New Orleans somewhere. As long as I can afford it. I can't imagine living and dying anywhere else.

Same here. Even when I think I've had it with the nonsense that goes on here, I still couldn't see myself being anywhere else and not missing it.

I've had it! I would likely be moving to NOLA but I can't deal with LA politics and social climate. Plus Ive been there a million times so I have good memories to live off of while gone.

Just out of curiosity, if not BR/NOLA, where would you go for awhile?

I felt the same way the other night listening to John Fleming argue with Denver Rep. Jared Polis about marijuana use in Colorado.

Fleming's closed-minded rhetoric reminded me how much this stagnant state sucks as a whole. Outside of the culture and overall experience there is to be had in South LA, what else can we claim as positives for the rest of the state?

I got a helluva laugh from Polis and his remarks about "smoking crayfish" though...
