An interesting take on New Orleans.


Larry Henry, of The American Spectator, has an interesting essay on New Orleans, a city in which he once lived as a musician. In a sense, it is a consideration of the virtues of a slacker—friendly environment. Like a number of us on the conservative side, a bohemian lifestyle is a fading memory for Larry, and one which is not entirely unpleasant to contemplate. New Orleans, it seems, was a better—than—average place to be poor, if you don't mind all the crime and squalor.

An interesting perspective from a great writer.
