THANKS METAIRIE, the sequel

Now a Jefferson Parish Council member wants to ban taqueria trucks. Mister Louis Congemi says, "This is a matter of trying to be consistent and clean the parish up." Huh? A better way to clean up Metairie/Kenner would be to shut down the Applebee's.

I say Mister Congemi is against competition. I say Mister Congemi is forgetting that his last name ends in a vowel and that his ancestors no doubt benefited from the entrepreneurial spirit that helps make New Orleans great.

Thank goodness for some civilized voices in today's letters to the editor. They reflect the real spirit of this place.
