AUDIO: Journalists are in New Orleans to witness the Mardi Gras (3:30) (The World, 2/28/06, NPR)

Journalists from all over the world are in New Orleans to witness the Mardi Gras celebrations. The city is going ahead with the famous party just six months after Hurricane Katrina. Host Lisa Mullins speaks with Norwegian TV reporter Gerhard Helskog about the recovery process and the festivities.

One of the Brothers is at corporate training with coworkers from Europe, Asia, Australia, etc., for a few weeks and had an amusing experience the other day: an Italian women said: "It's the strangest thing, all of us who are here from Europe are single and childless but all you Americans, the Aussies, and the Indians are married with three or four kids."

Similarly, at the end of this clip, Mr. Helskog almost off-handedly captures an enormous difference between America and Europe.

Secularists here have an obvious vested interest in obscuring such differences, but Europeans can see them clearly.
