The original post was about a news article on the shortage of nurses. The article stated how crime wasn't a concern, and I beg to differ with that assessment. For a city it's size it is a murder metropolis. New Orleans and Louisiana in general are very poor areas and depend heavily on government subsisidies. Everday I see Ray Nagin on TV demanding more and more from the government. High crime and corruption are the hallmarks of New Orleans always has and always will be.
The crime in New Orleans, is now, always has been, and sadly most likely always will be because of the fact that it is an urban city, that is a party spot. It has nothing to do with being a "nanny state", if that were the case many of my fellow New Orleanians would not still be struggling right now, because "nanny" would have a bottle in our mouths.
I believe the crime in New Orleans is a very valid concern. New Orleans is a prime example of the devastation that the "nanny state" leaves people. People in these areas can't and won't do for themselves because the government has always done it for them. Now you see the end result.
