 I just returned from a short vacation in New Orleans. Despite what the media imply, it is not a dying city, nor dangerous for visitors. The French Quarter is still beautiful and vibrant, although less crowded. Restaurants are generally keeping pre-Katrina hours and the food is as good as ever. Residents, shopkeepers, tour guides, and wait staff are gracious and eager to help, without being servile.

Unlike in many struggling tourist spots, I didn't feel like a "walking wallet." If the recent market turmoil has left you frazzled and confused, get flat in your speculative positions and go long Nola!
