Happy 2013 to you as well! To answer the question about New Orleans. I am from the norther half of the state, although I have visited N.O. The main
"loss of spirit" is from the fact that much of the place has the after effects of the storm still blatant.... Went down a residential area saw
buildings with missing pieces, large amounts of them missing. Even a hospital was still silent completely abandoned and unopened. Most likely the
feel of the place is affected by that.
The fact that many residents chose not to come back is another consideration that must be accounted, some of my fellow statesmen showed their true
colour when they evacuated. My mother went to get a job in Oklahoma, no Louisiana citizens were allowed work there after the calamity caused by the
refugees to the businesses in the area.... New Orleans is a fun place, sure there is a large crime rate (here too are many petty crimes.)
This is not an insult to anyone from my state or New Orleans, simply that many of those who emigrated during/after the storm caused much trouble in
the neighbor states.
