DAWN OF THE BUG: The Audubon Insectarium opened this weekend to Audubon members (it opens to the public this Friday). If the crowd on Sunday is any indication, Ron Forman & Co. have a huge hit on their hands...

THE DOCTOR IS IN, AND HE’S P.O.’D: Jon Pareles profiles Dr. John in The New York Times and finds that the doctor's still ticked off at the whole Katrina thing. Who knew?...

CHARTER SCHOOLS: The Washington Post’s Jay Mathews examines our charter school controversy....

NOLA 911!: Looky at what WWL-TV found:

Hundreds of documents including police reports, internal investigations of officers and district attorneys files have apparently been sitting in an unsecured and unoccupied former Fifth District Police Station for some time...

Money quote:

When asked why some of the documents were stamped, “Confidential,” [Police Superintendent Warren] Riley responded.

“Because it says confidential on it doesn’t mean it’s for police use only.”

Guess not. At this point, it's all just scratch paper...

WHAT'S IN YOUR WALLET?: Whitney Bank has acquired Parish National. What does it mean? I dunno. My ATM card still says Hibernia, and it still works fine...

MUSIC: The Chicory has a nice writeup of Clint Maedgen’s performance at the Ogden last week, complete with YouTube goodness. Gambit’s Alison Fensterstock interviewed Clint between sets; in this week's Gambit, she has a preview of his performance tomorrow night at Zeitgeist.
