Emperor of the World

New Englanders have probably never heard of the Emperor of the World. He is the kind of man who can only come out of New Orleans. New Orleans Slate: Emperor of the World

I've never seen the Mother-in-Law Lounge open but I've admired it every time I've passed by. I've paused before it, bewildered at how such a beautiful, handmade thing can be in the world on such a scale.

Ernie K-Doe's and Antionette's story is an inspiring thing. The place itself will take your breath away and stretch your credulity. It exists, at least for now, a beautiful piece of New Orleans.
