1. The martyr city that the Republicans will fear the most coming next federal election. Mostly in the minds of its victims and its brothas and sistahs. Also known as the North American Third World disaster (but not for long).

2. Victim of mislead governmental priorities. (An episode of the Simpsons where a meteor would strike Springfield foreshadows the Hurricane Katrina disaster.)

3. Bush's worse nightmare.
(Biased definition)

1. New Orleans: the Phoenix will rise from the ashes

2. Remember the Republicans of how they mislead New Orleans how they left the citizens cold and wet.

3. George Bush would have wished New Orleans would have been the next Atlantis so his dynasty could continue during the midterm.

Due to Hurricane Katrina, a large number of New Orleans musicians could be relocated to Houston. This could be a major movement, similar to the Great Migration of southern blues artists up the Mississippi to Chicago and all points in between, c. 1914-1945. A richer, storied heritage combined with the progressive culture and entertainment dollars Houston offers. This could be big.
Houston and New Orleans have always shared a regional popular music tradition. Blues, rock, zydeco, soul, gospel, R&B. Mix in some Big Easy jazz and Texas conjunto. Hayail yayass!!!

New Orleans is a large port city located as closely as possible to the mouth of the Mississippi River, making it a necessary port to the U.S. and for delivering goods to America's heartland. Though largely decayed and impoverished, the city has a flavor unique from all other cities in the nation due to its rich, creole heritage. It is protected by a faulty U.S. Army Corps of Engineers levee system that has been criminally managed for decades (not very far from many other major American cities). It was misrepresented and brandished when the levees breached in 2005. The levees are not being built to standard, a very low standard, that is.
America's Rio. The city that care forgot and government abandoned. Laissez le mauvais temps roulez!! ReNew Orleans

A city with a large percentage of lazy people, a culture of terrible public education, and BY FAR the worst streets in America...but at least the affluent neighborhoods have the same shitty streets as the poor! A city with an out-of-control crime rate and murders that occur all over the ciy (Central City, Uptown, Mid City, NO East, and all over the WestbanK) with many carjackings and drug-related/retaliation shootings. A city that was stupid enough to keep Ray Nagin in power...

AND...

The city with maybe the best food in the country, not just the upscale stuff but also the great corner-store food (see po-boys and red beans and rice). A city with a rich tradition of jazz music and festivals. A city that worships the Saints, which helps distract people from all of the problems in the city. A city with an extremely unique personality due to the architecture, food, and music that you won't find anywhere else.
New Orleans could be the greatest city in the country if the people would do more to confront the crime and education problems.

The best city in Louisiana, practically the jazz capital of the world. Destroyed by Hurricane Katrina at the end of August 2005.
Bad news: 1,500+, most in New Orleans, dead from a hurricane...
Good news: I just saved a lot of money on my car insurance by switching to Geico

A once beautiful city that is now in a state of anarchy because Bush ignored evidence that a large hurricane could crush the levees defending the city from Lake Pontchartrain and the Mississippi River, drowning most of it in over 20 feet of water. And again, thanks to Bush's poor reaction to the disaster, it may remain that way by the start of next year.
The recent disaster in New Orleans killed what little respect I still had for Bush. You were warned years ago!
