What is it about this city that keep us here? Not our elected officials, that’s for sure. Not the poor education system. And not the arduous task of rebuilding a city that was already in bad shape before we got slammed. It’s something indescribable, as Chris Rose eloquently points out. One thing about New Orleans is that it engages your attention in strange ways, or as Rose writes: "You can’t sleepwalk here; you will fall into a pothole."
I don’t want to live in a city that makes it easy for me to muddle along. So, if potholes will keep me on my toes then so be it. There are a lot of things here that make life special I have my own list, but what do YOU think makes New Orleans special? Please leave me a comment.
