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.

Children were taught that all Christians are liars and attempts were made to introduce Sharia law in classrooms as part of an alleged ´Trojan Horse´ takeover plot of Birmingham schools, an inquiry has found. The inquiry commissioned by Birmingham City Council found evidence of religious extremism in 13 schools as school governors and teachers tried to promote and enforce radical Islamic values. Schools put up posters warning children that if they didn´t pray they would "go to hell", Christmas was cancelled and girls were taught that women who refused to have sex with their husbands would be "punished" by angels

Los Angeles — Laura Whitney and her husband, Michael Korte, don´t know whether they´re being good citizens during a drought or scofflaws. On the same day the state approved mandatory outdoor watering restrictions with the threat of $500 fines, the Southern California couple received a letter from their city threatening a $500 penalty for not watering their brown lawn. It´s brown because of their conservation, which, besides a twice-a-week lawn watering regimen, includes shorter showers and larger loads of laundry. They´re encouraged by the state´s new drought-busting, public service slogan: Brown is the new green. The city of Glendora

Transport Committee urges Government

The Government needs to make it “easier and cheaper” for councils to bring in lower speed limits to reduce the number of cyclists killed Britain’s road, an influential group of MPs has said. The call for more 20mph speed limits by the Transport Select Committee was accompanied by a demand for a five-fold increase in cycling infrastructure spending to cut casualties. The policy recommendations come in a major new report into cycling safety released today. It argues for a “cultural change” to ease the tensions between motorists and cyclists and calls for the appointment of a “cycling tsar” to coordinate policy

A SET of mysterious, 5,000-year-old rock carvings could see the light of day again, after being buried 50 years ago to protect them from vandals. The Cochno Stone in West Dunbartonshire bears what is considered to be the finest example of Bronze Age “cup and ring” carvings in Europe. The stone, which measures 42ft by 26ft, was discovered by the Rev James Harvey in 1887 on farmland near what is now the Faifley housing estate on the edge of Clydebank. It is covered in about 90 carved indentations, or “cups”, and grooved spirals, along with a ringed cross and

Along with citing a list of moderate GOP governors with last names like Bush and Christie as potential 2016 GOP presidential candidates, "Arizona Sen.

Political pundits are divided about the merits of House Speaker John Boehner´s lawsuit against President Obama´s employer mandate. But should the chief executive be worried that two constitutional law experts — one a conservative, the other a liberal who voted for Obama — not only think the suit has merit but will likely succeed? The two backing Boehner and two constitutional law experts who oppose the suit testified Wednesday before the House Rules Committee.

Some Republicans are beginning to extend their free-market, limited-government beliefs to include opposition to corporate welfare, like the Export-Import Bank. Many conservatives hate the idea of centralized education standards driven by a coalition of unaccountable bureaucrats and big business. K Street lobbyist and former GOP congressional aide John Feehery warns that this is a dangerous for the Right to walk, asking: What would happen if Big Business decided to change sides? What would happen if the Chamber of Commerce suddenly stopped being a huge fundraising machine for the Republican Party and started financing pro-business Democrats?
