I can't help but think that there is a major connection between the type and ferocity (and frequency) of crimes in New Orleans and in border towns in Mexico recently.  It seems that both places depend heavily on tourism, drugs and the drug trade is a major source of revenue, and poverty abounds.  I am sure that sociologist, anthropologists, economists, etc., could tell me more, but I wonder why life is so undervalued in such environments?
The principal of my school lived for several years in Mexico, and it is very interesting to see the correlations between life there and in New Orleans.  There are many similarities in our daily life and in our interactions with each other.  But especially interesting are the ways that holidays and Holy Days are celebrated.  I like trying to explain why we New Orleanians do things a certain way and I like hearing how others do it. 
Much of life in both places seems to be a celebration of life, but I still can't get it out of my head - why the high crime?  What is it that causes people to think that violence and revenge are the answers?
