||This city is so backwards and in need of a serious makeover. Our pathetic mayor and government officials are the reason this city is so far behind the rest of the country. We don't want to tear down rotten, crime ridden, criminal layden public houseing because a few out of towners want to make a statement. We are fighting about a rotten, ugly church that should have been torn down the day after Katrina hit. Now a school , a very good school wants to in fuse the area with 30 million dollars and we are holding it up because of a few, yes a few idiots who have left town. I am re-building my rotten home with an 800,000 structure, [ i think i made a big mistake, we should have left NO]if the govn operated like private individuals we would all be better off. Mr mayor grow some guts and start making things happen. we want Holy cross in Gentilly, if you want the church move it somewhere else, how about in a public houseing development.
