NY Times profiles Shreveport: "Son of a gun, Hollywood has big fun on the Bayou"

The NY Times opens with: "There is a backlot feel to Shreveport, tucked in “Ark-La-Tex,” the nexus of three states where the piney woods encircle sloughs and bayous. Its post-boom downtown — the oil and gas petered out in the mid-1980s — has plenty of fine old buildings, not many people and, along with a bit of dissipation, an air of expectation, as if the circus might suddenly crest a hill and bring all manner of hoopla. "

NY Times writer David Carr has profiled the city and the work we do. It is witty, frank and a useful mirror for our purview.

Between the movies and the newly discovered shale, maybe Shreveport has another boom coming up...
