An American treasure -- and one of my favorite places, anywhere -- could well be no more as of Tuesday. There's no finer convergence of food, drink, and music than the French Quarter.
Let's hope things go differently. If not, I put the over/under at three days before a Christian Right type comes forth with the idea that God destroyed New Orleans because it's a den of sin.
Well, thank ...uh...God it looks like utter destruction won't come to pass. But there will still be those who wish to place blame for these storms, and I expect the more likely group to point the finger will be the enviro-left global warming crowd.
