Saints vs. Houston, and Kenny Rogers…

Today the Saints play Houston… wonderful, good…I hope Houston goes down in flames and New Orleans rides Drew Brees and my newest most favorite player, Mark Ingram to a good ol’ fashioned square dance stomping.

Pencils, not prayer…

Sometimes, events just write themselves, such as this article at Think Progress…highlighting the two events in Houston last Saturday. At Reliant Stadium, Presidential wannabe Rick Perry and 30,000 others got together and prayed for the lord’s guidance in solving both the nation’s problems and Perry’s seeming inability to not wear a suit that doesn’t choke his neck til his head looks like a well coiffed … Continue reading Pencils, not prayer…

The Gulf? Don’t Nobody Know Nothing Never – Me Neither, Except for…

I remember one night many years ago, walking down Decatur Street in the Quarter as the darkness was coming on, challenging the streetlamps to do their best. It was a beautiful February evening, colder but not freezing and as I glanced in the river’s direction I smiled at the sight of a rolling fog bank, moving slow, silent and concealing.
