In Bourbon Street shooting,
6 out-of-state visitors injured

Times-Picayune [New Orleans, LA], by Helen Freund

Original Article

Posted By:Ribicon, 7/1/2014 5:46:49 PM

As the investigation into the Bourbon Street shooting continued Tuesday, police confirmed that six of the victims were visitors from out of state, including a woman from Australia. NOPD spokeswoman Hilal Williams sent out a press release shortly before 2:30 p.m., which included a change in what authorities had previously said - that six of the victims were women and four were men. But victim nr. 7, who police previously identified as a woman, is in fact a 22-year-old New Orleans man, who was treated and has since been released from the hospital. The wounded included a 21-year-old woman

Comments:
Ray Nagin´s Chocolate City has returned to full flower, providing thrills and chills to any and all bystanders who venture within bullet range of what they like to call "at-risk populations." (Of course, it´s the rest of us who are at risk, but that´s part of the Marxist linguistic game.)

Feckless police chief identifies the assailants only as "cowardly young men," fails to see the irony in his own refusal to better describe the usual suspects. And on it goes.

Haven´t been to Bourbon Street in 22 years.
Last time was my last time.
Wouldn´t go there after midnight without my own SWAT team

I visited New Orleans once, and that was the last time. The occult was pervasive; NO is Satan´s playground.

I love the French Quarter, but you have to be aware of the crowd when you´re there. Some nights it´s a very fun evening, and there are no problems. Especially if there´s a Saints game that night. Other nights there must be concerts that bring a different crowd to the area. I would not stay out until almost 30 a.m. though. My daughter´s were there during Memorial Day, and they had one great night as they, and many other people were celebrating bachelorette/bachelor parties. The next night was not as safe so they went back to the apartment to enjoy themselves. I feel sorry for the people that were shot. It must have been very traumatic for the everyone there.

I have enjoyed New Orleans many times through the years, whether on vacation or on business. We especially love Preservation Hall.

The last time we went was about fifteen years ago. We had a little apartment on St. Ann St. in a wrought iron gated courtyard---just a brief walk from Jackson Square. Sublime---perfect way to visit the French Quarter.

While we enjoyed the music, the food, the City Racetrack, and the old historic sites as before, we decided to make that our last visit to New Orleans.

What had been an exotic but aged courtesan of a spot had become a pock-marked dirtyleg. Before, the seediness of Bourbon St. fell away as we walked toward Jackson Square. This time, however, Bourbon oozed outside its boundaries. The gay crowd in particular just couldn´t seem to keep things private. It was so very sad.

So we´ll remember the French Quarter as it was in the old days.

I loved to visit New Orleans but haven´t been there for some time, at least since we moved to FL. I can see it, though, using my cam sites. I have one looking down on Bourbon Street and it also has a link to the cam at Cat´s Meow Karaoke which is very entertaining. Another cam is at Jackson Square. Safer than being there, but just not the same.

There is more to NOLA than Bourbon Street, booze, and the occult. But don´t let that change your mind.

Raleigh — The state Department of Administration has placed safety barriers and scaffolding outside a pair of new state buildings on Jones Street, including the Nature Research Center, after discovering pellet-sized pieces of glass that have broken off some window panes. Glass has fallen inside and outside the new science museum and the adjacent Department of Environment and Natural Resources building, said Chris Mears, DOA spokesman. The cause is uncertain.

After grabbing some chicken wings and potato wedges at the Publix deli, a Cobb County woman couldn’t wait to eat her lunch, according to police. So, she allegedly went straight into the store’s restroom, where she ate. But then, she left the Mars Hill Road store without paying for the food, according to Cobb County police. “Said accused took the items into the bathroom, where she consumed the items and exited the store, bypassing the registers,” an arrest warrant obtained by The Atlanta Journal-Constitution stated. Elaina Marie Clark, of Powder Springs, was arrested Friday afternoon at the store and charged

He was booked into the Columbia County Jail in Lake City where he is being held without bond. Chance is accused of beating and robbing an elderly Winter Haven store clerk on Tuesday.

He was a leading figure in one of the biggest climate change marches to date. But it seems Robert F Kennedy Jr was not so forthcoming when it came to questions about his own carbon footprint. Confronted by a reporter asking if he would give up his phone and car, the environmental lawyer became visibly irate before grabbing the microphone and accusing her of ´destroying democracy´ as a member of the press. The interview in New York yesterday afternoon started with a conversation about the number of flyers produced for the event, which Kennedy Jr claimed was necessary to garner ´people power´.

Tulsa, Oklahoma - A man was critically injured while being mugged in a parking lot outside a Tulsa hotel just after midnight Saturday. The victim was smoking a cigarette outside the Select Hotel on Skelly Drive and Yale when two men held him up. Police say one of the men pulled out a hand gun and shot the victim, a 29-year-old man. One bullet passed through his shoulder, and one hit him in the forehead. Although the man was able to return to his room and call for help, authorities at the scene said he was critically injured with a fractured

Jerry Brown signed legislation Sunday providing financial incentives and other perks to entice consumers to buy the environmentally friendly vehicles. (Snip) The board will change its clean-vehicle rebate program to provide an extra credit for low-income drivers who wish to buy or lease an electric car.

President Obama is supporting the Secret Service in the wake of a deeply troubling incident in which a disturbed man jumped the White House fence, sprinted across the North Lawn, and actually entered the White House Friday evening. The man, 42 year-old Omar Gonzalez, had a folding knife in his pocket and had left 800 rounds of ammunition in his car not far from the White House. Gonzalez had also drawn the attention of authorities at least twice a few weeks ago — once in Virginia, when he was found with a sniper rifle, a sawed-off shotgun, and a map with

President Barack Obama saluted a pair of United States Marines on Tuesday while holding what appeared to be a styrofoam cup in his saluting hand, a breach of military regulations that won´t win him fans among veterans and servicemen. Obama is known for drinking tea, not coffee, when he travels, especially before delivering speeches. His quasi-saluting gesture was an instant embarrassment for the White House, and not because his environmentally taboo drinkware clashed with the green-policy speech he was on his way to deliver at a UN Climate Summit.

Last week, esteemed doctor and one of our ObamaCare Architect Overlords penned a column for the Atlantic that should win a Pulitzer Prize for passive-aggressive shaming. Although Emanuel claims that *he* doesn´t want to live past the age of 75, the article itself could have been a listicle titled, "Top 15 Reasons No One Over 75 Should Receive Healthcare."

The United Nations Climate Summit will begin in New York this Tuesday, but environmental activists didn’t wait. All day Sunday, they filled the streets of Manhattan for a march that featured Al Gore, New York City mayor Bill de Blasio, and various Hollywood actors. But they certainly didn’t act like a movement that was winning. There was a tone of fatalism in the comments of many with whom I spoke; they despair that the kind of radical change they advocate probably won’t result from the normal democratic process. It’s no surprise then that the rhetoric of climate-change activists has become increasingly

Rush Limbaugh apparently tips generously, which sometimes makes people who dislike him feel quite awkward. In one case, a waitress-turned-award-winning-author revealed that she felt so awkward, that she donated both of his $1,000 tips to an abortion charity. Merritt Tierce, whose debut novel Love Me Back chronicles her time at a high-end Dallas steakhouse, revealed in an interview with Dallas News that, at the time, she was also the executive director of the Texas Equal Abortion (TEA) Fund, which provides financial assistance to low-income women seeking abortions.

One of them—the last—was less good, given he had gone MIA for the better part of three weeks and I had a sneaking suspicion he had a girlfriend. We hadn’t slept together, but the kisses had been the type of kisses you walk away from with shaky knees and blind hope.
