Slidell Is a suburb of Louisiana. It is right between the coast of Mississippi and New Orleans, therefore it was completely destroyed during Hurricane Katrina, due to the eye going directly over it. It is a city made up of primarily extremely rich, snobby white folks who work in New Orleans but choose not to live there because it is the ghetto. You can either live in the city limits or outside, those who live outside are about 5 minutes (or a ride over Lake Pontchartrain on the Twin Spans) from New Orleans. The city lines are quite blurred, except for the fact that there is a giant lake in between. The people of Louisiana are for the most part extremely laid back. So goes there saying, "laissez les bons temps rouler", or let the the good times roll.
"I'm from New Orleans (Slidell) and I my town is completely obliterated but, laissez les bons temps rouler."
