sometimes, democracy calls for comfortable shoes. after the midday stroll i took at thursday’s occupy new orleans march and protest, held in conjunction with the nationwide occupy wall street movement, i was glad i owned a pair.
that’s because i got a nice workout walking every step of the march and rally, which, major media estimates aside, drew about 500 people.
On Wednesday, Carolina Panthers Head Coach Ron Rivera held a conference call with New Orleans reporters. The Panthers face the New Orleans Saints on Sunday.

Reggie Bush believes Tony Sparano is a great coach and has given 0-4 Dolphins coach a vote of confidence. He thinks Dolphins players are to blame for the poor start. One of the players in the locker room who deserves the most blame is Bush who signed a two-year contract with Miami for $9.5 million. The Dolphins thought Bush would be their featured back. The Saints replaced Bush with Darren Sproles who will get $14 million over four years.Through four games Bush is responsible for 217 all-purpose yards and one touchdown on 54 touches (4.0 average) -- 119 rushing (40 carries, 1 TD), 86 receiving (13 catches, 1 TD) and 12 punt (1 return).
It is now official.

For many, the announcement marrying the Mercedes Benz, New Orleans Saints, Louisiana, the Superdome, the City of New Orleans together for a ten-year relationship which designates the world-famous and magnificent stadium as the Mercedes Benz Superdome is a Super Bowl-made-in-heaven.
It’s every Broadway fanatic’s wildest fantasy come true. A live, full-scale song-and-dance production right there in his own living room, complete with an armchair narrated tour of the plot from beginning to typical, old-time Broadway musical happy ending.
The oddly titled The Drowsy Chaperone is the vehicle by which the unnamed “Man in the Chair,” portrayed by local favorite Ricky Graham, gets to live out his fantasy and find – at least temporarily – a cure for his “non-specific illness.” The JPAS season-opening production debuted on September 30 onstage at the Westwego Performing Arts Center (177 Sala Avenue, Westwego) and will run for two more weekends through Sunday, October 16.
The left wing has now found their answer to the Tea Party; it is the dirty, smelly bunch of protesters trying to occupy Wall Street. This group started with a few dozen college students on September 24, but has now begun its third week and expanded to sites across the country.
These young malcontents are upset at the capitalist system and “corporate greed.” They want to “Occupy Wall Street,” and send a message that the real culprits in this country are in corporate boardrooms.
