ordinary hero, parte quattro

The hero that I would like to honour this week is a legendary lady, known for her grace and her style and her sense of fun and her courage. Welcome back, New Orleans!

In a sign that the Hurricane Katrina-ravaged city may be recovering some degree of normalcy, officials announced Wednesday that New Orleans will hold its famed Mardi Gras celebration and that a permanent police chief will be sworn in well before the revelers converge on the city in February.

There will, of course, be a few restrictions in terms of areas of the city that are accessible and so on. But the idea of Mardi Gras was something that a lot of people thought would have to be forgotten for a long time. Nothing stops the biggest party in the world, though. Not even the most destructive natural disaster to ever hit the city. If bouncing back from Katrina is not a reason to celebrate, I don’t know what is.
