Reasonable Expectations

Preface
It was a 'thumbs up' sign of approval from people cruising Orleans Avenue near Carrollton Avenue on Saturday morning as they watched Susan Coogly ride her new mower through high grass on the Orleans neutral ground. Coogly , who lives on the avenue, said she's concerned about the post-Katrina lack of city services. Cardboard signs, duct-taped to her mower, that say,'Where is the $$going,' express her feelings. 'The mayor is still spinning and our city is spinning,' Coogly said. "Where is the money and where is the mayor?'

I've actually been contemplating trying to organize some sort of "mow the neutral grounds" thing...unfortunately I don't really have much of a yard and therefore don't own a mower.
 
Can we get our taxes back?
 
Hey Schroeder I think the levee board has all of your taxes, or their contractors do.
 
yes shroeder they probably live right next door to you and have all your money, and at the same time, they are doing a fabulus job of convincing you all of your money is in washington. Start next door at your tax assessors and levee boards, then, only then, will you be able to go after the big boys!
