NOLA.com cutting edge hipster douchebags sounds about right. They've recently opened a Baton Rouge bureau, probably to tweak the Manships (Advocate). The office looks like it's designed to look outre/cutting edge.

If it was me I think I would've cut the BR bureau and invested in putting out a New Orleans newspaper every day of the week.

Hope the water comes back soon. Was mentioning the other day to someone that I just don't know how people existed before running water. And I do mean existed. No way can you live like that.

It came back within 45 minutes, mercifully.

We cut off NOLA.com and have not looked back. We now get the New Orleans edition of the Advocate delivered to the house, and it's not the same, but I appreciate the efforts of the Manships and give them A+ for trying. We're old-time readers of both newspapers, and the Advocate was usually better at covering state politics. I use "The Lens" and "Gambit" online for further news. When NOLA.com fired half the staff, it was plain that the coverage would not be the same.

I look forward to more NOLA blogging from you, Adrastos.

Adrastos, you hear the Les Miles rumor? Some slap at Western Kentucky sez he'll resign tomoro after discovery of affair with a student.

My source, pretty high up at LSU, calls bullshit. But it'll be big for a day or two even if it is bullshit. Am sure NOLA.com has Jim kleinpeter and others on it. Beats the water beat. Who needs water? We want Tiger news!!! This is Looooweeezeeeeanna!

If I ever pay $75 for a dog collar, rest assured it is not going on a dog.

My bride and I have to make at least one more trip down to Bat Country to deal with some issues related to her mother's estate, after which she hopes never to return. But, Adrastos, if we get down there (and it might not be until after I finish grad school in December), she'll be with the lawyers and accountants all day and I'll be pretty much at loose ends, so I'll hunt you up.

Please do, Lex. Would enjoy meeting you.
