Keep in mind this is a neighborhood of mixed races and many colors. Some are descendents of the old families that spilled out of the French Quarter and some are descendents of legal immigrants from back in the 30's. Make it real and you will find gems of stories there...after the storm the second oldest church in New Orleans, St. Agustine was going to close. Many people fought to keep it open for their parish and the archdiocies let it remain open.

Khandi Alexander was finally let go of CSI Miami?

I didn't know that.

Congrats to CSI Miami for finally getting rid of their weakest link.:)

As for HBO, they are following the sad script most networks adhere to: keeping the doors closed to new creators so they can make more shows few will care for.

They let go of Khandi Alexander some time ago, Rena. They have the girl who played Isabella on The 4400 on now. Catching up, catching up...

I've given up on CSI Miami a long time ago. I guess when I watched a show recently, I didn't even notice Khandi was gone as I was always doing my best to not listen or watch in the very few scenes they allowed her to trample with the bad acting.

Still, congrats to the producer for addition by substraction.:)

I keep not commenting that Wendell Pierce is a very fine actor. I'm glad he's working. :)
