I am beginning to think there is something wrong with New Orleans. God knows I love this city but it can wear you down. The crime is out of control. How many times have I written that? How many more times will I write it. Wake the fuck up New Orleans! We are complacent about this city's problems. We see drug dealers and ignore them. we hear gun shots and think nothing of it. Sirens wail in the distance and it just so much background noise. There is something wrong with us. We cannot even keep an area as small as the French quarter safe. It is enough to make you dream of moving. I wonder what it must be like to feel safe. How wonderful it must be to walk the streets after dark. I expect i would feel slightly out of place after having soldiered through this city's war for so long. Hmmm...Portland. They say Portland is very safe. You can walk after dark. You can feel safe.
