Hi Charlie:

I too agree, I just mentioned that I was going down there and would make it a 
po int to check it out along with any other viable opportunities,   I am sure 
there are many other historical places that could use restoration.   We have 
to first see where the Political and economic winds are blowing before leaping 
into such a long distance undertaking.

After all New Orleans should have done it long ago, but perhaps politically 
they chose not to do so, as often happens in major cities with other 
redevelopment plans for high rise hotels and office buildings etc. that would be far 
more lucrative for them then protecting and preserving history.

The worst thing that will happen is I will enjoyu a lot of good music and eat 
too much good food and leave some California money in New Orleans.   If I am 
lucky I will get to meet some of the folks on this list while there.
