  Trash to Go

The Times-Picayune today's lead story (nola.com) is "Streetcar Lurches Forward" It celebrates the opening of the line up St. Charles Ave. to Lee Circle. THEY say that it will go to Napoleon Ave. by next September and to the end of the line by Labor Day 2008. At the rate the money for Katrina-N.O. related recovery is going, do not hold your breath. Of couse NO for adults is in full swing and it and crime are increasing as "people" come back for money. Amazingly the children's amusement park at City Park is open in spite of no funding (merry-go round soon too) as are the Aquarium, Audubon Zoo, and ferry and river cruises and everyone can eat.
