New Orleans has been ravaged by racism and natural disaster (references). It is also a hotspot for traveling punk community and anarchists looking for a lawless place to call home. A few years ago I helped a friend upgrade their existing solar electrical wiring, and recently visited hoping to continue those efforts. No hep was needed there, but I was able to lend a hand at the other anarchist squat across town by repairing a "knicked" wire with a code-compliant J-Box. While this was not much work I did take the opportunity to audit the wiring done there by a real professional. Other electricians working there that week all agreed that it was some of the nicest wiring in all of NOLA. Sometimes seeing good work done by someone else can teach you a lot.
