There's a lame article in Business Week alleging that Louisiana is America's laziest state.
Louisiana in general, and New Orleans in particular, seems to be topics that result in a lot of internet shooting from the hip and making hostile assumptions, both by writers and by commenters. We are a different culture: we tend to emphasize different values, styles of life, and modes of expression than do people living in many other places.
It can be summarized as follows: "People in Louisiana work to live. Everywhere else, they live to work." In short, why work for work's sake?
Virtue or Necessity?
