What is happening in New Orleans this Halloween weekend night? There's plenty to do, plenty to boo and plenty to spook and voodoo.
Here's the latest from LaFete News by Frank Stansbury
What are others saying about the upcoming game between the NFC south leaders, the New Orleans Saints and the winless St. Louis Rams?
This is from ESPN
The NFC South-leading Saints will play a winless team for the second straight week when they go against the 0-6 Rams on Sunday at noon in St. Louis.
Secretary of the Interior Ken Salazar today highlighted two projects in the state of Louisiana that will be included in the final report — representing what states believe are among the best investments in the nation to support a healthy, active population, conserve wildlife and working lands, and create travel, tourism and outdoor-recreation jobs across the country.
The media is in love with the “Occupy Wall Street” movement or as Ann Coulter famously called them, the “Flea Party.” This group is receiving plenty of media attention and like a virus is spreading to cities across America. Each protest site attracts left wing activists, homeless people and deviants in search of a cause. It is truly a noxious combination; a crazy, smelly mix of kooks.
In advance of the St. Louis Rams game, New Orleans head coach Sean Payton talked with the media on Thursday and discussed injuries to Mark Ingram, Jon Vilma, Chris Ivory and others.
During the interview, Payton also discussed the diversity of his receivers and the differences of skillsets of his running backs Ivory, Darren Spores, Pierre Thomas and Ingram:
"he was over there protecting the rights and freedoms of america and he comes home, exercises his ‘freedoms' and, it's here, where he's nearly fatally wounded."
the young man being talked about is scott olsen. scott olsen isn’t a dirty hippie or unemployed welfare case or a wild-eyed radical; he isn’t some college student protesting on his daddy’s dollar.
Today, Governor Bobby Jindal continued reshaping his second term by announcing that Aaron Baer will serve as Deputy Communications Director and Frank Collins III will serve as Press Secretary, following the appointment of Kyle Plotkin as Communications Director. Both Plotkin and Collins will begin their new roles on December 1. Baer’s start date will be November 20.
October 27, 2011--12:16 AM CDT The national conservative pundit class is praising Governor Bobby Jindal's landslide victory.
The most recent fawning piece of pro-Jindal pimping comes from Cal Thomas who writes:
...most newspapers and TV media outside Louisiana either buried Jindal's win on inside pages and deep into their newscasts, or ignored it. In a telephone conversation, I asked Governor Jindal why? "It runs contrary to the political thinking in Washington, which is about more spending and bigger government," he said. The big media don't want to focus on successes that come as the result of smaller government and less spending because it not only reduces the size and power of government, but the influence of journalists who see themselves co-equal with, if not superior to, government.

Saints coach Sean Payton and Drew Brees answered questions from the media at Wednesday's news conference.
Payton updated the team's injury and roster changes, said Mark Ingram (heel injury) is day-to-day and Chris Ivory could be activated if Ingram can't play.
Brees discussed the Saints locker room is unique and unselfish, Marques Colston's receiving skills, playing another winless team and playing a 16-game schedule.
