It has more of an upside than a downside, but face it the city leaves alot to be desired. Until the crime rate, political corruption, and unemployment rate changes I will continue to think so. I am waiting on a liquor license that has not been signed off on because the DA who must sign has a son who is a competitor and every day he drags ass on signing benifits him. Try to own a business here after owning one somewhere else and tell me that there is not a major problem. Just because one believes the state of the city is in shambles making it a ****hole does not mean they are anti Saints or anti NOLA.
You do realize the rest of the world COMES TO New Orleans to visit, right? (and the hotels aint cheap.) I think if it was a true sh**hole, they would stay home. I see beauty and culture and life in N.O, and I think NOLA is worth preserving. (I'm not saying you dont, I'm just emphasizing a view.)

All cities are sh**holes in places, and have government crap to deal with. You should see the Rubber Tool that runs Houston, and the pile of regulation my neighbors have to deal with to do business here. Not to mention traffic, noise, crime, chickensh** red light fu****g cameras, and police that do nothing but sit on the side of the road all day writing tickets & ruining people's day.

Its 400 degrees here, and it smells like garbage. Sound familiar? At least you have those giant sprayer trucks that wash the street. Just wait till the population of Mexico reaches you.

Now what Houston does have is a rocking economy. If you cant find a job in Houston, you just dont want to work. Its cheap rent, and everything you'd ever possibly want to do. And anyone who says Houston "has no culture" is just as ignorant as the tool who says N.O. is "a bunch of looters." The theatre scene here is 2nd only to NYC. we got all that art crap here, and art people etc.

Its all what you make it.

Europe aint no better than us, and I know Chicago, NY, LA, MI, etc are just as bad.

What you might consider, is moving to the country. Im a few paychecks away from doing just that. But I'm still gonna hang out in New Orleans a lot.

And I though you were worried about how high your child support would go.

b) once the fanbase completely dries up (it wouldn't take more than a season or two with their fans), I would move the team to Gnome, Alaska.
Too funny!!! Good stuff right there.

I'd have Fox/Cox/ESPN strap me to the wire cam, right above the action. That way Reggie might hear me when I say "No, Reggie, No!".

It won't help. Coach says that all the time to him, and it
makes no difference a'tall.
