Sidney Bechet's House is Gone
With so much news in the past 4 days, I almost missed this piece in the T-P. It is great that Da Mayor is working on our blighted neighborhoods, but really! Sidney Bechet's house couldn't be saved? And the city is about to demolish The Outer Banks Bar, Dixie Brewery and Das Deutsche Haus (I know, there is a plan to move it, but that is not definite yet). New Orleans used to be the city that care forgot, but since Katrina and the Federal Flood, we can't be the city that forgot to care. These places need to preserved and celebrated. Especially the homes of people that created America's music, Jazz.
