    Just an FYI ..Metairie is pronounced MET-AH-REE. Lafraneire is prounced
    – LAUGH-RAH-NEER. The only one who cared that much about Al Copeland
    was Al Copeland. He was more famous for fathering numerous children from
    different women. The joke was, if you were a young beautiful woman, of
    birthing age, then you better not stand next to Al for fear of getting
    pregnant.
    Thank God that statue never got approved. That poor park
    isn’t very big to begin with and I don’t want to see his overly
    processed face on my walks. Maybe he had that biscuit lard injected into
    his face?

    I am all in on this park monument. The family is not only wanting to put up money and contribute to cancer research. But think of all the tourism money the city will be raking in from people coming to see the most ridiculous fricking monument ever erected.

    The only real problem is aesthetics, and I don’t see why that can’t be resolved with a few strategically placed trees and hedges.

    Gotta disagree with your sentiment concerning Abrams, guys. He’s a dirty hack. I liked Cloverfield. I’ll admit it when he does good. Nothing else of his has been watchable. Ok, sure, they start out with the appearance of watchability and value but then always the sweet candy turns to crap as it sits on your tongue.

    I get that not everybody enjoys things the same way, not everybody watches movies for the same thing. There are a lot of fangirls who are into Thor simply because they ship him and Loki. Likewise there are a lot of Sherlock fans who are only in it for the ship. But, you know, there are also other ways to enjoy these things like for plot and worldbuilding. Trek 2009 was terrible because absolutely no thought was put into it. It starts with a terrible villain and goes downhill from there. Nero was zero-dimensional, a singularity of directionless menace. Did they have good casting? Yes. Good things could have been done with those characters but nothing happened.

    I like the themes Trek tries to explore. I think there’s a valid place for them. But I don’t want such a glorious opportunity wasted with more of Abrams’ hackwork.
