A hole to fall in
If you're in the mood to sue a city, here's your chance.
This rather breathtaking hazard is about half a block off Decatur in New Orleans' French Quarter. It's hard to tell from this picture how truly, bone-breakingly deep the hole is – but believe me, even after living in New Orleans for four years, I was impressed.
So anyway, good luck to anyone who falls in this beauty and tries to get justice... New Orleans scoffs at your pothole indignation and says, "We're built on a swamp. Watch where you're going."
