There are many reasons to be outraged, dismayed, and bewildered by the anniversary
of Katrina, but what Im still puzzled by is: how did "NOLA" become
a (helpful) abbreviation for "New Orleans"? Is there another New
Orleans I should be careful not to mistake for the Crescent City? To conserve
precious characters, should we start referring to "NYNY", "SFCA",
or "LVNV"? Just askin.
