In Memory of New Orleans

By Alan B. Combs. Many of my wife’s relatives live(d) in New Orleans. I find I have a great deal of affection and sadness for that wretched city.

It has not been a good year for New Orleans. Many enterprises, both legitimate and those with less than respectable attributes went down those totally inadequate drains. The bordello district was particularly hard hit (so to speak). Total inundation with nasty, poisonous water was the order of the day. A prophetic folk song popularized by Bob Dylan and others described these events.

“There is a house in New Orleans
They call the Rising Scum.”
