Celebration time in New Orleans

The parade for the Super Bowl champion New Orleans Saints will kick off at 5:00 p.m. Central Time today in front of the Superdome. The stadium that came to symbolize the horror of Hurricane Katrina now stands as a marker of the Crescent City's resurgence. Not only did the Saints win their first Super Bowl on Sunday, but the people of New Orleans turned a new leaf politically. A city riven by racial and economic strife long before Katrina did her damage came together on Saturday to decisively elect Lt. Gov. Mitch Landrieu (D) as its next mayor. The challenges are great for Landrieu. But I hope the enormous good will that ushered him into office will bring an accelerated pace of recovery and an era of focused leadership to a city that has suffered enough.
