The savage looting of our D-Day & Confederate Museums sickened me beyond words, and led me to wonder: what else is located in NO that probably met the same fate?

Any one want to begin a list?

Zatarain's
The House of Blues
Larry Flynt's Hustler Club
Bubba Gump's
Cafe Du Monde
La Montagna(sp?) Hotel
Kentwood Springs Bottling Plant(?)
Haunted Cemetary Tour
Ripley's Believe It Or Not Museum
Various voodoo and hoodoo shops
New Orleans Police Museum, Bourbon St. Precinct
Bourbon Street Harley Davidson

Oh dangit! I forgot a song I've known since I was a wee lad..

Well, in eighteen and fourteen we took a little trip
along with Colonel Jackson down the mighty Mississip.
We took a little bacon and we took a little beans,
And we caught the bloody British near the town of New Orleans.

Speaking of food disasters, I'm going to stock up on Moon Pies in case something happens to Chattanooga and Jack Daniels in case something happens in Lynchburg...I'm going to make sure to visit both factories again, just to make sure!

Relax.

Tabasco plant is A OK. Bottling line production starts back up on Tuesday.

Don't hoard the Tabasco just yet boys; it's made down in Avery Island (also a bird refuge).

A lot of history in NO, the Cabillo is at Jackson square, some very significant documents of American history there when it was under the Spanish flag. I hadn't heard about the looting of the museums this is truly sad. I knew that there was a highly undesirable element in NO, but this is just as bad as the spoiling of Iraq by it's citizens; truly scum of the earth deeds. Maybe there should be a house to house search of all of NO in search of these materials before anyone is let back in.

You know, I was thinking . . . that 80% of the city is under water, and there's only one way out, so where is all this loot stashed? They can't take it with them when the army evacs them (which they will) so where do you figure they've stashed all the Porsches, MBs, BMWs, jewlry, etc.? Not to mention every wide screen, stereo, computer, etc. in town too.

Better search it before they let the f'ers back in. Probably never find the small neat stuff. Unless you had a good samaritan have the foresight to break in and hide stuff (very unlikely down there).

So how bad did the D-Day museum get looted?

I hear Tapatio is tasty, as is Cholula.

All are weak shadows of Tabasco.

So true. It is located about 20-25 miles south of Lafayette near New Ibearia on an island in the marsh called Avery Island.

I was born in NOLA, I am sure the little house on Tchoupitoulis street will one day become a famous landmark.......

I just have to do something to make me a hysterical landmark.
