Pearls of Wisdom

Last week, there was a letter to the editors in USA Today, from a man who claimed to have been a relief worker after Hurricane Katrina. However, this man was now saying how stupid New Orleanians were for establishing a city below sea level. I think there is a large group of Americans who really don’t understand how or why New Orleans was settled.

I would recommend to him or anybody, to watch the documentary “New Orleans” which recently aired on PBS as part of the American Experience series -

The program traces the origins of the city and outlines what makes it utterly unique among all American cities!
