Candy Land

The Future Of New Orleans

"I don't care what people are saying Uptown or wherever they are. This city will be chocolate at the end of the day." -New Orleans Mayor Ray Nagin, in his Martin Luther King Jr. Day speech
Finally! Someone with a good idea about how to rebuild New Orleans. Make it a Chocolate City!!!!!

Can you imagine? The fountains and canals filled with chocolate milk; The streets paved with chocolate bars-- the levees lined with truffles. Imagine a place where you can pick chocolate malt balls right off the chocolate malt ball trees, while the children splash in chocolate syrup puddles. If there's a sweeter vision for the future of New Orleans, I haven't heard one.

And Mayor Ray is already in the planning stages:
"How do you make chocolate? You take dark chocolate, you mix it with white milk, and it becomes a delicious drink. That is the chocolate I am talking about," Nagin said, when asked to explain his comments.
Sounds delicious to me! MMM, a Nestle Town Hall, nestled in the center of town square. A Cadbury French Quarter. A Godiva Dome over the NFL Saints new stadium. A Hershey Highway bringing loads of tourists back to town.

What? Oh, grow up.

Mayor Nagin, I salute you. While some cynics like Joe Scarbourough may call your comments divisive (obviously, not a chocolate lover), I welcome them. What better way to rebuild, than to rebuild using yummy, creamy, delicious chocolate??

The world needs more visionaries like Ray.
