Mardi Gras in New Orleans, pt.1

Shame, shame, shame.

We are to be ashamed of oursleves. As a nation. As a people. Shamefull and pathetic. It's all I can think about upon my return from New Orleans. I could have filled my camera with pictures like this, but frankly I was too ashamed to do so.

Six months on and this is the scene, 2 blocks off Canal, just off the parade route.
