|A very articulate yet sensitive text where I reckon both heart and mind of the writer.|
Thanks for the translation Nicole.
New Orleans has had historically so many features:
- It belongs to the "Bigger Caribbean Basin" as J.J. ARMAS MARCELO stated from the Mississippi Delta until the Amazon Delta in Brasil.
- An interesting mix of French, Afro, Spanish and Anglo Culture was given, making it a place so rich in the culinary, musical and architectonical arts.
- The geopolitical importance of this Gate to the U.S.A. is crucial. We will see the effects of this disaster long after this very moments...

|Thanks for your commentary.|
Andrei Codrescu is an important and famous american writer who lives in New Orleans, but he's born in Romania (he left at 19)... In fact, I did the translation in french, this is the original text.
