Greetings From New Orleans

Greetings from New Orleans and Bourbon St., home of the Super Bowl champion Saints! I was on one of two flights to escape Newark in this direction yesterday and miracuously made it down here.

I am amazed at how well the city looks. After Hurricaine Katrina, I expected the city to still be in a state of reconstruction, but other than the infrastructure improvements in the roads, the place looks great. Actually, it looks better than ever.

It's a good lesson to companies recovering from the recession. Although things may look bleak and no company wants to go through such tough times, it does give you a chance to rebuild certain things and start from scratch.

And when money starts coming back to the the balance sheet, invest in improving the infrastructure to make sure it's in place the next time bad times come.

If you can take one lesson from down on lively Bourbon St, that is a really good one.
