And then there's the music . . .

According to this newspaper article, Nick Spitzer (voice of New Orleans on public radio stations and XM Satellite Radio's "American Routes") has assembled the best of the Big Easy for broadcast called "After the Storm." Go to to get air times/dates.

"There's a line in there [ "Do you know what it means to miss New Orleans?"] that basically says, there's someone I miss even more than I miss New Orleans," Mr. Spitzer said, "meaning that New Orleans is more than the city, the region, the place. It's the personal relations. In another context, it could be schmaltzy. But when I hear that line now, the way it mingles the individual and the cultural, I just start to cry."

Oh, yeah.
