Hurricane Katrina, five years on and still so many people are not home. So they can come home and stay, we need a coast, and for that we need among other things a United States Senator who supports coastal restoration.
I do not agree with all of Melançon’s views but it is precisely his conservatism which makes him a viable candidate in this area, and he will stand for reason where Vitter does not.
The other suggestion they are making on the radio is to support a musician to return to New Orleans.
Many of those who cannot afford to return due to the housing situation are musicians whose presence here would help ensure the continued existence of the important engine of world musical culture we are.
You can buy a good CD at a low price and otherwise support the New Orleans Musicians’ Relief Fund right here.
