How should I feel about ocean levels rising when I live in Louisiana?

Given: I think too much. We're fixing up the bathroom and I'm considering putting some cash into fixing the driveway, but then I wonder if the house will be (literally) under water in a few years time... (Sulphur, LA - on the Texas side of Lake Charles). Am I paranoid or is this valid?

Recommendations for swampy fringe folk/americana music?

Looking for music recommendations (particularly instrumental recordings) that capture the mythically haunted swampy vibe of the American gulf coast.

Devil Worship Is A Flat Circle

In a recent comment on the Blue, I mentioned a strange case of mass hysteria that spread through my hometown when I was a child. After writing it -- and falling a bit deeper into the rabbit hole of moral panics and 80s boogiemen in general -- I'm left wondering if there is any documented evidence of this particular event. So I'm wondering if AskMetafilter could help me solve this puzzle. [more inside]

Roadtrip from Hammond, Louisianna to Vancouver, BC

I will be in Hammond, Louisiana this October and wanted to make a road trip back to my home in Vancouver Canada. The current plan is to buy a vehicle in Hammond or New Orleans, then drive through Texas and up the coast. I am an artist, so visiting sites like Marfa to see the Chianti Foundation and visiting LA to see the MOCA and the Hammer are priorities. I am asking for advice on art sites and routes with the most interesting or essential things to see. I've visited a few places in the US but this is a big trip for me I may not be able to make again so I'd like to make the most of it. If you are American, assume I know nothing. The obvious for you may not be that obvious to a Canadian. Thanks!

Who shops at an open-air market for dental tools?

Does New Orleans have an open-air market for dental tools? Back in the late '90s, I visited New Orleans with my parents. I have one memory from that trip that I am still bedeviled by. One afternoon, we headed to a big open-air market -- rows and rows of stalls, I think under some kind of canopy, various goods for sale. I guess this was probably the French Market, but I don't specifically remember. As we got further and further into the market, the stalls started to get a little funny. Everyone had POW-MIA flags, and I saw one that read, "KILL THEM ALL AND LET GOD SORT THEM OUT." [more inside]

Road Trip! Gainesville, FL to Austin, TX this fall. Suggestions, advice?

I've used AskMeFi for travel advice before and it's been invaluable.

Can you find Night Owl, by Bobby Loveless?

Where can I find a digital copy of Bobby Loveless' 'Night Owl'? It's an old rock and roll tune (late fifties - early sixties) which was hugely popular in Louisiana (and throughout the Delta region). I have been looking for it on behalf of my father-in-law, who is a huge fan of this era's music? It's pretty obscure, I acknowledge.

Recommendations needed for online law schools in Louisiana

I am interested in pursuing a degree in law. There are no law schools where I live and am too settled to uproot. What do mefites think about online law programs? Legitamacy, practicality, etc? Any suggestions on one over another? Personal experiences? One other complication is I live in Louisiana (where our law code is a little bit idiosyncratic). Does this affect national online law school choices? TIA
