New Orleans has launched a new bridge building programme not to relieve their traffic problems and certainly not to strengthen their defences against approaching hurricanes!
The reason for building the bridges is an attempt to cover up the homeless, alcoholics, junkies and others not lucky enough to enjoy Mardi Gras in a sober state.
State Highway bridges are to be built way outside the iconic French Quarter so tourists visiting local dens of inequity do not have to stumble over homeless people sleeping outside in tents, sleeping bags and paper bags near the infamous Quarter.
One homeless, ex-jazz trompeter, before he succumbed to overdoses of crystal-meth, Louis Fonteroy-Lableu, offered his opinion to Jaggedone's star CIA (Cockroach Infiltration Army) bum reporter, Messieur Le Voodoo-Mierda, here it is:
"Well sir, I believe that New Orleans is a great city and we welcome the possibility of sleeping under even more state highway bridges because the present ones are becoming quite crowded and those damn tourists keep staring at my urinated, stained jeans! I feel like a f'ing freak!"
New Orleans, home of James Bond films and other extravagansas, including raving mad Drag Queens, also feel their project is going to be a tremendous success in attracting millions of more tourists and helping the homeless in the city to an even better life under the new bridges as far away from Bourbon Street as possible!
