Mass Pilgrimage to Violent Quagmire

In 2006…
New Orleans had a higher violent death rate than all of Iraq .

(Even unofficial Iraqi counts pushed the carnage to New Orleans levels.)

But, that didn’t stop the the Mardi Gras revelers from packing the streets of America’s murder capital this weekend!

Chocolate City is expecting up to 700,000 visitors!

Surprisingly, there were no “US Out of Chocolate City” banners seen this weekend.
