I was in New Orleans before some of the bad side was cleaned up .. was friends with some too, most were OK. They supposedly cleaned up much ... hopefully.

Notice how they do not even mention a passenger until they refer to the gunshot wound? How about-it's not a good shoot if they have no idea who they are shooting at.

Recipe for a Five-Star Review

2 hours, 40 minutes ago

A year ago, Yelp released a list of the “100 best places to eat in America,” based on customer reviews from its millions of users. The result, as I wrote at the time, was a delightfully democratic and refreshingly random list that seated haute-cuisine stalwarts like New York City’s Le Bernardin (No.…
