New Orleans Murder Muddle

The murder rate in New Orleans is high, and the conviction rate low, as Newsweek points out. One particular part of town is known locally as the "Murder Triangle," as drug dealers from other, less populated parts of town shoot each other dead in turf struggles. BTW, then-U.S. Attorney Jordan (mentioned in the article) once saw your humble correspondent in his birthday suit, but only because the bathroom door in the courthouse gym had a malfunctioning lock. I said nothing, but I thought, "I have nothing to hide from the Government, as you can see."
