Only in New Orleans
...can the owner of a trash company become a rock star.
All politics aside, I have to tip my hat to Sidney Torres....SDT absolutely kicks ass. Since they took over the Quarter, it has been cleaner than downtown Covington. They have guys running around at all hours of the day in those golf cart things making sure the streets are clean. Their fleet of vehicles looks like it was designed by Boeing.
It's really amazing to watch...a company with a city contract that actually takes pride in their job....what an anomaly.
So I have an idea, let's deputize every member of Torres' team, give them 9 mm's and let them patrol the whole frikkin' city. If this guy can fix our trash problem, let's see what he can do for our crime problem.
The next time you're in da Quatahs and you see an SDT employee...thank them. They may be the most positive thing to happen to the city since the storm.
