Default Patriotourism in New Orleans

Pariotourism in New Orleans

As you make your vacation plans for this year, please consider coming
to New Orleans. Many of the local businesses, restaurants and hotels
are up and running, but due to a generally negative national media
image, many are struggling to stay open. You can help reverse this
catastrophic trend by coming to New Orleans. Now.

It has never been easier to get a table at one of our famous world-
class restaurants, or find a great deal on a room at one of our
historic hotels or B&B's. Come explore the storied plantations, take a
swamp tour and hear some of the greatest music on he planet. New
Orleans is also proud to be the port of embarkation for three cruise
ship lines. The Norwegian Sun, Carnival Fantasy and Royal Caribbean
Grandeur of the Seas are home ported here, with the Princess line
right behind them, and what better city could you begin and end a
cruise from? Add a few days on either end of your trip to take in the
history and culture of one of the world's most romantic cities.

A great place to start planning your trip is the New Orleans
Convention and Visitors Bureau (http://www.neworleanscvb.com/
index.cfm). Request a Visitor's Guide, plan your itinerary, or even
register to win a ride on a Mardi Gras float! Be sure to check out the
events calendar to coincide your trip with one of our famous
festivals. And if you have a big heart and a lot of ambition, check
out the Voluntourism page.

I'll be frank; many of us are fighting for our lives a second time.
First we were inundated by the ineptitude of The Army Corps of
Engineers, and many of us feel we were abandoned by our government.
You're all we've got left. We need you, the people, to come to our
rescue. In order to rescue us, you'll be required to eat, drink,
dance, sing and generally pass a good time. You'll be asked to endure
the hospitality and friendliness of a city famous for both. It will be
expected of you, after sacrificing your hard earned dollars, to
continue your patriotic duty by becoming ambassadors and preaching the
Gospel of New Orleans to your fellow citizens. The Crescent City has
risen! But you are its savior.

We look forward to seeing you. Don't be afraid to ask for directions,
how to pronounce Tchoupitoulas, or which stage to go to at Jazz Fest.
We'll be more than happy to oblige, and we'll thank you for coming,
friend.

Why don't you start attracting journos so that the media image
improves?

I say let it rot. It could position itself as the Angkor Wat of the 25th
century.

The *last* thing the city needs is more journos who will write even *more*
about the truly dire straits the place is in...

It's a pity that the whole NOLA - Katrina situation is covered with such a
miasma of utter neglect and corruption - and this on all levels, e.g. city,
state, and national. It's truly shameful...

So much for the "can do" American "spirit"...

<sigh/>

I haven't read any articles on the place, but what I do know is that
journos love being taken out to a good dinner and filled with booze.

That boundless American optimism seems to have given way to a lot of
really ugly stuff in recent years.

George,

I am curious why you wish New Orleans to rot?
