Carville Speaks

From the most recent Gambit:

"It has its...own identifiable architecture, its own identifiable body of literature....If this were a city of 700,000 people 20 years from now and it was prosperous but had lost its culture, it would not be as good as a city of 400,000 people that had maintained its culture.  If we lose the culture, we lose what makes us New Orleans.  We become just another place.  I think it's important for people to realize how special our culture is - and that it's not something that we can take for granted.  We have to want to preserve it."
