About fifteen miles above New Orleans the river goes very slowly. It has broadened out there until it is almost a sea and the water is yellow with the mud of half a continent. Where the sun strikes it, it is golden.

And I wound up in New Orleans for all those years and it was a great place, really a catalyst creatively.  Jimmy Buffett

And we live in a French Quarter a lot of the time, in New Orleans. And the camaraderie of everybody there. Everybody takes care of each other. Delta Burke 








And you find as a writer there are certain spots on the planet where you write better 
than others, and I believe in that. And New Orleans is one of them.

And if citizens of New Orleans who are really contemplating coming back heard that we're really intent upon making the place secure again - regardless of whether the levees held or not - then I think a rebuilding process would really take shape.
