Photo du Jour: Jackson Square KTMB +59


Before the THE BIG DANCE started on 29 August 2005 when Katrina that miserable bitch (KTMB) decided to turn things upside down, over the years I would periodically venture down to the Vieux Carre and more specifically Jackson Square to reaffirm my "being" in New Orleans. Yesterday in the AM I made one of those trips--and took the above photo. Unfortunately, the Square wasn't open yet (the gates were still locked) so I couldn't get onto the "set," uh, I mean into the Square. However--despite all the destruction and all of the tremendous problems New Orleans has to deal with--yep, "IT'S" still here--and I don't just mean the Cathedral. Oh ya, and there were plenty of Carpetbaggers and Los Carpetbaggeros types across the street at Cafe du Monde.

Is the statue of Ignatius Riley still there on Canal St., or did the looters get it?
