After checking out Home of the Groove’s latest Mardi Gras posts, and listening to Nick Spitzer’s New Orleans-based American Routes on NPR tonight, I am in the Mardi Gras mood baby! New Orleans may be a very different place after Katrina, but its spirit no doubt remains, and its rich and unique heritage will lift that city right back on its feet.
