re: Bourbon Street renovation costs have DOUBLED - TheIrishFro on 8/23/17 at 5:23 pm
[quote]Do you know how much it's going to cost to repave the street for Mardi Gras, then rip it up again, then repave it for jazz fest, then rip it up again, then finish the project?[/quote] This is going to be one of the best examples of how New Orleans government functions.

re: Gambit article: "Is NOLA Worth It?" - TheIrishFro on 8/22/17 at 4:37 pm
Yeah New Orleans was the premier city in the South in the 1800's and was only rivaled by Atlanta in the South before WW2 but it definitely didn't lose its stature to anyone in the South. After WW2, Atlanta and especially the Texas cities took off and left Nola to what it is- a shell of a once ma...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (1)

[quote] Irish and Scottish individuals would be greatly offended and would probably attack you if you called them "British". Likely Welsh as well.

re: What is your take on hookers? Victim or Criminal - TheIrishFro on 8/17/17 at 7:53 am
Well one of the easiest answers is that the free-market would work. If I were looking for a prostitute, I would only pay for one that has had a recent STI checkup and protection would still have to be used. If everyone did that then the STI problem would be minuscule. However from examples aroun...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)

[quote]I think our main obstacle isn't the Superdome[/quote] It is. Market size isn't a big deal. This isn't conference realignment, this is one-time tournament. They care about stadiums and ticket sales. The ticket sales would be fine at the Superdome, it's got a great capacity and it can fit so...

re: NOLA among cities trying to land matches of 2026 FIFA World Cup - TheIrishFro on 8/16/17 at 4:42 pm
The one problem, and it's a major one, preventing NOLA from getting a game for the World Cup is that we don't have a desirable stadium. The only stadium that has capacity for a World Cup game is the Superdome. The fact that it's a dome and it uses turf harms its selection. FIFA won't allow a game on...
