I'm thinking of organizing a relief effort to help the poverty-stricken peoples of an isolated, hardscrabble region. These proud men and women have lived a unique way of life for many decades, even while being ignored by their own government. They took economic hardship and political disenfranchisement, and used their own unique culture (especially noteworthy is their music) to overcome adversity.

I'm speaking, of course, of New Orleans. Who's with me?
