Lafayette, Louisiana Posted On: 8/5/2007 7:29:48 PM
The first one must know about Lafayette, and Louisiana in general, is that the climate from March to through October is extremely hot and humid. Second, the public school system is abysmal, which caused is by wide scale cronyism, and legendary governmental corruption. Everyone that has the wherewithal sends their children to private or Catholic schools. The roads, generally, are awful, and not just because of the aforementioned systemic corruption. There is no bedrock to speak of, foundation slabs merely float on the soil. Same thing for roads. Even new roads don't last very long because of the poor foundation.
On the plus side, Lafayette is extremely diverse. Whites only represent a major minority. The climate is conducive to growing anything. Unemployment is low, and it is fairly easy to find a job, even though the jobs may not be the best available. Of course, there are hurricanes and we all know what happened with Katrina.
