“This one seems pretty safe,” said Rouses shopper Josh Gates.
Gates and Chrystal Nause live on the Westbank but usually travel to Midcity or Uptown to buy their groceries.
“We don’t try to go there very often,” Nause said. “Because most people don’t wear masks.”

Students are petitioning to have a professor at Loyola University New Orleans fired over his opinions on slavery, even though he vehemently opposes it.
Economics professor Walter Block says his opposes slavery because he is a libertarian, but that reasoning isn’t good enough for some students, who wish to see the professor removed because he doesn’t have exactly the same opinions as they do.
A petition, signed by over 600 students, alleges that Block has ‘racist and sexist beliefs’.
The petition claims that Block “has publicly stated that he believes slavery to be wrong because it goes against Libertarianism, not because it is morally wrong.”

A photo of a child stuffing money in a burlesque performer’s G-string sparked outrage this week, causing the entertainer to delete her post.
But instead of apologizing for the shocking nature of the picture, the stripper doubled down, defending her right to sexualize children.
The incident began this week when New Orleans-based burlesque dancer Bella Blue posted the photo to Facebook with a caption reading: “This little girl was at brunch a few weeks ago and her family was encouraging her to tip and engage with me. It’s always so refreshing to see families actively destigmatizing and changing narratives around bodies and sexuality.”
