Whitewashing New Orleans

I noticed my shuttle bus driver seemed to be taking a circuitous route tonight to get from the Sheraton hotel in New Orleans to Mardi Gras World, site of a rockin’ bash sponsored by Motion Computing and Intel in connection with the HIMSS conference.

I asked the bus driver what was going on and he said all the drivers at HIMSS are under orders not to go through areas devastated by Katrina.

That seems ridiculous to me.

  1. That is crazy! We need the world to see. The government ignores us. The media ignores us. My last hope is that NOLA is a tourist center and visitors will come and see and be mad as hell. The truth must be known.
