Defeatism may have its partisan uses, but it is not justified by the facts.This rings so true to us New Orleanians.
We all know the defeetists. And they are not justified by the facts. When they say “I betcha five bucks I know where ya’ got dem shoes,” we know they do not really know.
We know that they will not respond “Payless,” or “Foot Locker,” or for those better off, “Sears.” We know they will say “On your feet,” and then expect payment for such an unjustified-by-the-facts statement.
Defeetists must be stopped. They have been driven away by Katrina, and must never be allowed to return to the New Orleans.
Wait a minute, it’s defeatists with an “a”? Never mind. I have no problem with them.
