All on a Mardi Gras day...

Miss Antoinette K-Doe died this morning. She was a wonderful woman and a singular New Orleans character. I met her for all of ten minutes one weekend afternoon after the storm and I can tell you this - the city sang through her heart. Even in the gutted shell of the Mother in Law Lounge, she was a bright light who made everyone feel like family.

Goodnight, Miss Antoinette. The city, she will not be the same without you.

Dude, please tell me you have thoughts on the Jindal speech ;-)

I have so much more important shit to worry about right now. I didn't even watch either speech. Besides, I gave up on Jindal a long time ago.

I hear he sucked. Doesn't surprise me.

Honestly, though, I really don't care what either one of them said. Words mean nothing.
