I live downtown, before, during, and after Katrina hit.

Crime began to spike; but the then Chief of Police and the D.A. made sure criminals heard that HPD wouldn't stand for it. The arrest rate went up quickly as well. It was a problem for about a year, but eventually law enforcement got a handle on it. I think crime is less than, or comparable, to what it was when I moved here in 2003.

Besides, downtown is just one area to reside; there are many from which to choose.

When one wants a cabriolet, is there really any other choice than an M3? No. No, there's not.
