    Iraq vs. New Orleans in July

    US suffered 38 combat deaths in July in Iraq, 11 by small arms fire. New Orleans had 21 murders. Considering New Orleans' population is estimated now at 225,000, I guess guess you have about same chance of being killed by gunfire in New Orleans as you do in Iraq. Good reason to carry in NO.

    Not unusual , We typicly have more murders in the " criminal empowerment citys " on any given day , week , month , or whateaver than we do in iraq .
    Make sure you get full value out of today , Do something worthwhile, because what you do today will cost you one day off the rest of your life .
    We only begin to understand folks after we stop and think .

    Criminals are looking for victims, not opponents.

    New Orleans is a cesspool of filth and immorality....more so since the sensible ones left. The crime there is bad enough that our corporate office there decided to move up to Jackson..not a great move but you arent taking your life in your hands evertime you go to work etheir.

    That idiot that calls himself mayor seems to like it that way...but the fools reelected him so they get what they deserve.

    Its a real shame that the few good folks that are left must suffer from the actions of a few...

    The thing that is really bad is that Ray Nagin started out doing a great job. He cleaned out the corrupt Taxi Board and the vehicle inspection section. He was trying to improve the city. It was in a bigger mess than usual after the administration of Marc Morial.

    It almost seems as if the lost his mind during and after Katrina. He has never recovered it.

    My last full year in NO was 1994 and that year there were 420 murders. Boston, MA with a population only about 1% greater had 38 or 39 murders that year. When we left in June of 1995 we were the happiest people on earth. Many of our friends had moved even before Katrina. My wife's brother lost his home to Katrina. He and his wife were already looking for a place to move to since she had retired at the end of the 2005 school year. They now live in Roanoke, VA.

    There are some great people in New Orleans and it is a shame that the scum end up running it.
