Physical Proof of New Orleans' Third-World Status!

Along the periphery of the Lee Circle monument, a compass has been set up as a form of public art. It serves as a stellar example of classic backwards New Orleans third-worldism. The east marker points toward the West Bank. The north marker directs you downtown. The south marker beckons uptown. It seems completely wrong, but that's just the way New Orleans is. I love it here!

In case you're unfamiliar with New Orleans, the compass pointers are completely accurate. It's new Orleans that's set up all backward!
