Things I didn't know about New Orleans

This is the beginning of my running list of things I neverknew about New Orleans before I arrived in this city.
I never knew that...
1. most levees are mounds of dirt with grass on them. Really, that's it!
2. in a US, urban area it could take more than 2 hours for the police department to respond to a call.
3. Bourbon Street smells alot like vomit.
4. a judge would actually show up for work wearing jeans and a golf shirt - and not wear a robe while on the bench....
5. may be he lost everything during the hurricaine and/or flood and may not even have returned to his own home yet.
