Well, bad weather, which everyone in NOLA certainly expected, is par for the course in hurricane season - most people in NOLA are under the impression that Gustav will likely hit Lake Charles, the weather will be really, really sh!tty, and Nagin called the mandatory evacuation to cover his @ss.  But all my people are leaving or have left, so . . .

"have to admit"?

you usually feel guilty about that?

Early dispatch from the pre-parade West Indian Day Carnival:

1 man with Obama booth playing
2 pro-Obama songs ("Barack and Obama and Obama and Barack and de ope ope ope!").
3 men in SUVs harassing me for my phone number, which is hard to understand with
4 gazillion beautiful West Indian women in skimpy and beautiful parade costumes, preparing to dance and drum.
5 police vans.  On this block.

I had a delicious jerk chicken patty for breakfast.  Golden Krust, you've just been served.

Ah, NYC.  For some reason, this post reminded me of the Puerto Rican Day Parade Seinfeld episode.

I don't remember that one.  What happens?
