Don't be naive. If the city really cared about them parking close to their homes why don't they ticket people in the rain?What, the city only cares if they can park when it's sunny? How long have you lived here? A week? It is about the almighty $$$$$! Live in the Marigny past Frenchman, It's a free for all.What about the people that live there?They shouldn't be able to park close to their homes?No meter maids there to make people repark every 2 hours.They are there though to only check the meters.Recurring theme-MONEY
Suffering myself from a mental illness not only is NOLA lacking mental health services but the metro area as a whole is basically nonexistant much less easily accessible. I myself have been to a clinic, given meds, and then told to go to the Jeff. Parish Mental Health Facility.(Not close to bus route.) Only to be told there they can't treat me 'cause of meds. Long story short, $155 an hour Doc is mainly your only choice.The homeless don't have a shot.People need to be more pro-active and maybe a little more pro bono.
I have a beautiful friend who rides the bus every day to a job for a DO-GOOD charity for the last 33 yrs.He desparetly wants to take a computer class @a local job PLACE.The problem is he can't read/write/count.They pay for him to live but not learn.Any passionate educators out there willing to spend an afternoon helping a man achieve his goals?Don't know where else to go .Already asked library to look into.Nothing so far.Pro bono, of course.He also may teach you a thing or 2.Bit of a savant when it comes to everyone elses stop.Dedicated need only apply
