If New Orleanian are asked the names of natural leaders who were on the scene fighting to rebuild New Orleans after Hurricane Katrina or to punch back after the BP oil spill, Nungesser’s name almost always comes up. The national media often flocked to this unabashedly outspoken but folksy businessman because of his obvious love for the region and his insistence that Louisiana deserves better.

He was sitting on the living room sofa, in plain view — I am definitely an advocate for kids’ bedrooms as technology-free zones, for safety reasons and also to keep it a restful, peaceful place. Anyway, during this time, right in front of me, my son charged $3,800 worth of in-app purchases to our debit card!
