Kate Sekules… these stories now function as 21 silent little jazz funerals: exuberant, celebratory and tragic. Take, for instance, the lovely, knowing piece on Yvonne's, a beyond-grungy neighborhood bar that died in "another little outbreak of gentrification."

In a lot of ways, the past is all New Orleans has." Amen to that.
