As for other Middle Eastern bloggers, it should be no surprise to anyone that Sandmonkey has as special place in his heart for New Orleans. As N.O. native John Kennedy Toole's hero, Ignatius J. Reilly said of the city:
This city is famous for its gamblers, prostitutes, exhibitionists, anti-Christs, alcoholics, sodomites, drug addicts, fetishists, onanists, pornographers, frauds, jades, litterbugs and lesbians. If you have a moment, I shall endeavor to discuss the crime problem with you, but don't make the mistake of bothering me."
- A Confederacy of Dunces (CMAR II's favorite novel)
