The last time a prominent New Orleanian tried to buy a home in Dallas and commute to New Orleans it didn’t work out well.

For the new homeowner or for the Crescent City.

I know it’s unfair to compare New Orleans Saints Coach Sean Payton and former New Orleans mayor Ray Nagin, but the two now share something other than a Lombardi Gras parade toast: Controversy.
