Summary

New Orleans is a Third World country in itself, a Latin, African, European (and often amoral) culture trapped in a puritan nation. It's everyone's seamy underside, the city where respectable citizens go to get drunk, puke in the gutter, dance on tabletops, and go home with strangers, all without guilt. It's the metropolitan equivalent of eating standing up-if it happened in New Orleans, it doesn't count.
