[JPL] Bring the IAJE back to New Orleans ASAP

I have visited New Orleans several times since Katrina to leave some of my 
disposable income with the community.  Every time I would speak to a local 
and mention that I was from New York, I would get stopped in mid-sentence, 
receive a handshake, a smile and a heart-felt, "Thank you....thank you for 
coming."  Of course, I gave to local charities from the comfort of my home 
and continue to do so.  But if you really want to feel good about yourself, 
go to New Orleans, eat in the restaurants, buy in the shops and tell the 
people you haven't forgotten them.

I did not visit the hardest-hit areas.  I chose to leave these people with 
their dignity and not put them in a fish-bowl.  Perhaps I was wrong. 
Perhaps they needed to see that we still care.  Any New Orleanians care to 
comment?

I am going back next month for I can think of no other place my wife and I 
would rather spend our 20th anniversary.  Be there, or be square.  I'm 
buying the Pimm's Cups.

>> tourists and
>> professional associations to help facilitate the long road back to 
>> rebuilding
>> this national treasure.

>> Kudos to ESPN for not being shy about pointing out the current state of
>> affairs in NOLA, thirteen months post Katrina.  Despite promises from our
>> president that we would be witness to "the greatest reconstruction 
>> project ever"  the
>> state of things in NOLA remains beyond belief, a national embarrassment 
>> on a
>> par with the Native American reservation system.
>>
>> How many tens of billions of dollars? for what? where? IMPOSSIBLE!!!
>> kudos to spike lee, harry connick et al.

>> Rethink your next vacation or two--and try to include NOLA and Louisiana
