Should Mardi Gras 2006 go on?

I just saw that a group of people are suggesting that Mardi Gras 2006 be called off. Actually, I've been telling folks that Mardi Gras would most certainly go on-- that if it did not, people would take it as a sure sign that New Orleans was dead.

I'm not sure what's right now. I sympathize with the people who are homeless and would rather see the resources put to other use. But Mardi Gras really defines New Orleans... it's not really New Orleans without it.

I've put up a poll question about this. Please comment.
