No New Year’s Eve Bonfire in Mid-City?

A 70 year old tradition is in peril from the Modernist mooks. Read the latest attack on New Orleans’ Culture here

My response- Well I do not support suppression of the Cultural expressions of the folks of New Orleans.

Let’s get this game on and have the Bonfire (I’ll even end my “Stay @ Home, eat Ruebans and drink Margaritas” to save this event)

I’m tired of the City trying to control our lives and gentrify our town. All of us who returned did so for a reason- this is our home and these are our ways. Time to drive that point home once and for all.

Here’s Editor B’s take on this travesty.

This is from M. Homan.

And from the Wet Bank Guy.

Goddess knows I LOVE Civic Blogging. To be able to tweak the nose of some pin-headed mook is just the best thing in the World!
