Why New Orleans won’t vote for Rick Santorum…

Mostly because we cherish eccentricity, individuality, square pegs in round holes, round pegs shoved roughly into triangular openings, and creativity.
We understand that people who make money pay taxes.
We love art, good food, and different drummers.
And if we wanted to live someplace where everyone was a clone of C. Wright Mills’ Organization Man – well not sure where we would live but it would not be here..
We like music and festivals. We don’t mind if there is a occassional whiff of pot in the air. We have a head full of music and a heart full of the laughter of friends.

And we don’t want you to be like us.. and we don’t want to be like you. We just want to BE.

On a parade route.

Listening to music.

Cooking good food.

Dancing like “no one is watching”.

Sleeping late and waking up to the squall of quakers.

Laughing. Drinking. Smoking. Smiling.
