Amen "Just Wandering"! Without the businessmen, who are we supposed to rely on to help jumpstart our floundering economy? The government????? We all know how that's been working for us lately! The last time I checked, the businessmen provide the jobs, benefits, industry, etc. for our "average voters".... oh, and let's not forget about paychecks! I will RUN from a candidate who doesn't receive support from the business community. Since when did being a "businessman" become a bad thing? Do people not realize that the clear and present danger to our city (besides not re-building the levees) is that our businessmen might pack up and leave? Exactly where would that leave us? I don't know about you, but the paycheck for this "average voter" is not signed by another "average voter".
