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.

Nashville, Tenn. — Thirty-two teens escaped from a Nashville youth detention center by crawling under a weak spot in a fence late Monday, and 10 of them were still on the run Tuesday, a spokesman said. The teens — ages 14 to 19 — left their rooms and went into a common area, where they overwhelmed 16 to 18 staff members, Tennessee Department of Children´s Services spokesman Rob Johnson said. (Snip) The state-owned center in northwest Nashville held 78 teens at the time of the escape, and most had committed at least three felonies, Johnson said. The center has a school, offers vocational

Memphis, Tenn. — A man accused of raping a woman in her apartment is now in police custody. Donald Gwin was already on probation for another sex crime when this latest attack happened Thursday morning. Police say Gwin was wearing a GPS tracker at the time a woman was attacked at the Country Squire Apartments. (Snip) WREG-TV learned Gwin pleaded guilty in May to sexual battery charges related to a 2012 incident, when another woman said he raped her at knife-point. Gwin was given a two-year suspended sentence, put on probation for two years and added to the sex offender

Jinan, China — Usually, people can´t get rid of cockroaches fast enough, but a farmer in China collects and cooks them up. Wang Fuming is no ordinary farmer. He´s a roach farmer, and the bug business is booming. Inside where they breed the cockroaches, it stinks of ammonia, and Fuming says that in those rooms there are nearly a million cockroaches. It is literally the stuff of nightmares. Fuming said he feels close to them. A crop of American cockroaches brings in serious cash for Fuming, who is a roach kingpin in a growing market in China.

Police are asking for the public´s help to identify two women wanted for stabbing a man in the French Quarter after stealing his wallet. According to NOPD, a 25-year-old man was walking to a hotel around 3:45 a.m. when he was approached by two unknown black women that touched him and made sexual advances. The victim said he attempted to get away and realized his wallet was taken from his back pocket. When he demanded the wallet back a fight began and one of the suspects stabbed him in the hand.

Nashville, TN — "This is the mother, the metal mother," says Jay Millar, examining a brilliant silver disc on the machine floor of United Record Pressing in downtown Nashville. "And the mother is where it all starts." Fifty years ago United stamped out the Beatles´ first US single and dozens of Motown hits followed by countless 45s and 33s through the 1970s and 1980s. Today more than two dozen vintage presses stamp out albums in a hissing, whirring display of a century-old technology that not only refuses to die, but is roaring to life.

Pittsfield, Mass. — Lee´s former police chief faces new federal charges alleging he took more than $50,000 intended for Christmas gifts for underprivileged children. Twelve indictments were issued by a federal grand jury Thursday charging Joseph Buffis with wire fraud, mail fraud and money laundering. The indictments superseded four earlier charges for extortion by wrongful use of fear and other offenses. (Snip) Federal prosecutors say that from January 2007 through December 2011, Buffis diverted more than $51,000 from the Edward J. Laliberte Toy Fund for his personal use, with "a substantial portion" benefiting him and his family.

It’s often been observed that a certain type of British Lefty hates Britain – and that they reserve particularly hatred for Englishness. Back in 1941 George Orwell made this acute remark: England is perhaps the only great country whose intellectuals are ashamed of their own nationality. In left-wing circles it is always felt that there is something slightly disgraceful in being an Englishman and that it is a duty to snigger at every English institution. So what’s new? The difference today is that this shame and self-hatred now dominates Left-wing thought, whereas it was once balanced by the decent

Ukip are set to win their first Commons seat with a landslide 64 per cent of the vote following the biggest swing in modern political history. Turncoat MP Douglas Carswell is set to humiliate David Cameron at the Clacton by-election sparked by his defection, a Survation poll for The Mail on Sunday has revealed. The figures – the first test of public opinion since the politician rocked Westminster by defecting to Nigel Farage’s party – predict a record 48 point swing towards Ukip. And they put the anti-Brussels party a staggering 44 percentage points ahead of Mr Carswell’s former party

According to prosecutors, Guerra was on a mission to spread the potentially deadly virus to as many people as possible.

A violent father-of-two escaped deportation moments before being put on a plane to Jamaica – by suddenly declaring he was homosexual. Alvin Brissett, 55, was ordered to be sent back to his Jamaican homeland after building up a long criminal record including thefts, drug possession, and assaults. Yet at the last moment, while he was in handcuffs in a van at Gatwick airport, he announced that he was gay and claimed he could not be sent to Jamaica because he could face discrimination there. This claim halted his deportation in its tracks. And even though a hearing subsequently ruled it

President Obama needs to take action to stop Islamic State (Isis) militants from targeting cities in America and Western Europe, two senators have warned. Without offering specifics on any threats or suggestions on how to confront them, the leaders of the Senate and House of Representatives intelligence committees urged the White House to work to prevent the Islamic State extremists from launching attacks on US soil. The bipartisan pair shared a dire warning against Isis, which now has control of vast swathes of Syria and Iraq, has killed civilians from that region and beheaded American journalist James Foley. “This is

Jackie Gleason made a career of it on the old “Honeymooners” show; Tom Haverford is absurdly incapable on “Parks and Recreation”; and Michael Scott brought the Peter Principle to new heights in “The Office.” But in real life, incompetence can be dangerous, even life-threatening (think a real-life Homer Simpson actually in charge of safety at a nuclear power plant). That’s where America finds itself nearly six years into the presidency of Barack Obama. There’s no question Mr. Obama has all but checked out.

If you were in a room with Bill Clinton, he would discover the one issue out of 100 on which you agreed; he would probe you with questions, comments, suggestions; and he would tell you that you enabled him to understand it far better than he ever had before.

Because I am a black conservative, someone wrote asking me this great question. “What is it that compels some black men and women to cling to, and follow people like Sharpton, Jackson, Wright, Obama, Spike Lee, Black Panthers, Holder, etc.?” I have pondered the same question. Some black folks embrace victim status because it provides cover for their laziness and irresponsible lifestyles. Black Judases preach a false, evil gospel of victimhood-ism for profit. Some blacks are racist, pure and simple. I believe that a majority of black Americans simply have not been exposed to unfiltered conservatism – to blacks articulating how blessed they

The FBI said late Monday that it was investigating leaked nude photos that targeted Jennifer Lawrence and Kate Upton. The agency told the Associated Press that it was addressing accusations that online accounts of celebrities, including Oscar-winner Lawrence, had been hacked, leading to the posting of their nude photographs online. In addition, Apple Inc. spokeswoman Natalie Kerris said the company was investigating whether any iCloud accounts were compromised, according to the AP. Representatives for supermodel-turned-actress Upton, 22, and Lawrence, 24, who plays heroine Katniss Everdeen in the Hunger Games movie franchise, issued statements about intimate pictures which first appeared on

In remarks on the U.S. economy Monday, President Barack Obama said Congressional Republicans will eventually cave to public pressure to raise the federal minimum wage. Obama was speaking at the Laborfest festival hosted by the AFL-CIO in Milwaukee, Wis. “If I cared about these things, I’d also want more Democrats looking out for me,” he said. “I’m just saying. Because when the rest of the country is working to raise wages, but Republicans in Congress won’t, it ain’t right.” Noting the protests in recent months from fast food workers seeking higher wages, Obama said Republicans would open up to the

Between 1970 and 1990, the population of Philadelphia shrank by a quarter, dropping from 1.95 to 1.59 million. Like many American cities, it seemed caught in a downward spiral. Since then – like many American cities – Philadelphia has stabilized. The population now appears to have bottomed out at the millennium, and has been regaining residents over the past decade. But as it rebounds, Philly is becoming a different kind of city. In the two most recent decades, which comprise the bounce of the city’s population curve, owner-occupied housing dropped even more steeply than in the ’70s and ’80s. Between 2000 and

An anonymous hacker reportedly gained access to private photos on the Hunger Games actress’s mobile phone, and those of 100 others, via Apple’s online storage system iCloud. The 60-odd pictures of Lawrence in varying stages of undress were then posted on the bulletin board website 4chan.

WASHINGTON — The current Congress is on track to be the worst ever at passing laws since modern record-keeping began, with three of its lawmakers failing to introduce a single bill, The Post has learned. The divided House and Senate have managed to pass just 163 laws that garnered President Obama’s signature since the two-year term began in January 2013. At this rate, Congress will have no problem beating the previous record set during the 2011-2013 session in which 284 laws were passed. That was down from 385 laws passed in the 2009-2011 session.
