Yes... there are sections secured from public access to prevent exposure.

As for the Matrix quote... let's just say that silverware isn't safe around me. Some of my friends have matching sets of twisted cutlery.

It's been about 10 days since the last report of what's happening in the Quarter... any new "news"?

Are they still roustin' folks?

I was told that circle shows are ok just no shows in front of the cathedrial(same as always). And also a new one to me was we had to be 20' away from the fence. Was that why you were shut down Peter? Anyway with my math that contradicts another law where we have to keep the firelane clear. Oh and the Big Pitch is Private Property(French Market) so I dont think there would be a problem with working there. I assume the main focus of the French Quater cleanup was the Taroists. Of course I will not know until Monday when I get there. But thats what I know for now. Does anyone know if the benches are still gone?

I passed through Jackson Square twice yesterday (Sunday) afternoon.
Plenty of Artists, Readers, but no shows.
On Royal Street I saw three "Statues" no shows.

So I guess its bussiness as usual here in NOLA. I do admit that I didnt take full advantage of being alowed to do my show in New Orleans. I decided to do one show today and one yesterday. I figured I would have a better time under the hood of the Checker. By the way its hot here. Like real hot.

I just saw on the local TV news that yesterday the New Orleans Police thugs came up to an Australian tourist who was listening to a street musician. They said "You're the one!" and gave him a black eye and a busted nose, right there in front of everyone. What's going on?

By the way Evan, didn't they teach you the facts of life? It's REALLY hot and humid here in the summer. Today's heat index shows it feels like 102 degrees! That's why we get very few conventions and very few tourists here and so very small hats in the summer. Go west, young man, as they say, or north where it will be more pleasant. i'd kill to be in California right now.

The New Orleans Council has, as of 6/2/03, put off public hearing and action on Calendar #24,747, the "Tables and Chairs" ordinance that would terminally interfere with Tarot card readers as well as many musicians who busk in the French Quarter.

This is the second (or third?) postponement. Ostensibly the postponement was due to the absence of Council Person Jacqueline Brechtel Clarkson, in whose district ALL of the available performance pitches in N.O. exist.

The same thing happened five years ago when then Dist. "C" Councilperson Troy Carter tried to introduce restrictive legislation. Consideration, at that time, was postponed several times until, finally, it died. We mustn't assume this will happen again, but I suspect a letter from the ACLU to the Council has much to do with the reluctance of the administration to enact the legislation.

The text of the ACLU's letter, drafted by staffer Julie Rozenzweig, is available at:

Default Nature moves in.

The issues seem to have changed. I'm just hoping every-one is OK.
