Po' boy Property

Coffee made and paper in hand, I stare at the headlines of The Times Picayune and it brings me back to my last day in New Orleans. It was April Fools and it was all about the founder of Popeye’s kicking the bucket and the fanfare of his over the top jazz funeral. I turn the pages to see what else is newsworthy to the Quarter I love so well. The new governor advises of the need for worker training or economic downfall will ensue. A legislative bill to outlaw texting while driving is on proposal. I turn to the next page to see Official Notices; approximately eight columns with nine notices a piece advising homeowners of the city’s intent to demolish their homes unless contacted within twenty days following the publication of said notice.

I think, what are the odds these homeowners are reading this paper? All over the country they are. Each home a different story and this is how it goes. Po’ boy property further consumed by a city, state and country’s ravenous appetite for neglect and destruction followed by a cover up enabled by the media. And so it goes.

Laissez les bons temps rouler!*

*Let the good times roll…
