  •  Back in 2008 I was in New Orleans (7+ / 0-)

    I was staying in a boutique hotel on Camp between Canal and Poydras. Anyway, a short walk from my hotel (and very close to Mother's--man, that was a great po' boy!) was a fence around an empty lot with Trump signs all over it. Looking it up on Wikipedia today tells me it was for the proposed Trump International Hotel and Tower.  Anyway, whenever I think of Trump I tend to think of that empty lot somewhere in the area of Poydras and Magazine, promising something like luxury condos 2.5 years after Katrina, a gigantic monument to Trump's ego in a city that was still trying to rebuild what was lost. Seems rather fitting somehow that today it's a parking lot.
