ESPN columnist Bill Simmons (a/k/a ‘The Sports Guy’) wrote a nice article about his visit to New Orleans for the NBA All Star Game. He’s dead on about one thing: more people need to come here to see how well the city has recovered. The NBA commissioner was able to commit to come here, but the Commission on Presidential Debates somehow didn’t think that we were ready for a big event.
There’s no point in debating that poor decision. They were wrong, and the NBA was right. Thanks for your faith and support Commissioner Sterne! And thanks to all the other folks who have supported the city since Katrina.
