Coming up in this week's Gambit: stale Halloween candy edition

Posted By on Sat, Nov 1, 2008 at 4:25 PM

Did you have enough Halloween? The best part of the weekend for me is that extra hour of spring-forward, fall-back sleep...reset your clocks tonight and check your smoke alarm batteries. Coming up in Sunday's Gambit:

• It's our annual "40 Under 40" issue, honoring young and youngish New Orleanians who are contributing to the city in some amazing ways -- volunteerism, community organizing, fundraising, technology, green initiatives, and the arts. (I interviewed 23-year-old Happy Johnson and came away with the feeling I've done nothing with my life....)

Jason Berry looks at the power plays behind the decision to shutter some local Catholic churches, and gets inside the protest vigil that began this week at Our Lady of Good Counsel....

• All the arts & entertainment coverage you can swallow to help you plan your week, along with cartoons (This Modern World and Vic 'n' Nat'ly)....

• There's an election on Tuesday -- have you heard? Clancy DuBos examines the perils of underestimating Sen. Mary Landrieu, and Jeremy Alford offers a postmortem look at the Louisiana campaign season....

• ...and Gambit will be trying something new on Tuesday night: liveblogging the election from the studios of WWL-TV, reporting the results as they come in and getting off-the-cuff reaction from the reporters, analysts, and pundits on the Channel 4 desk. We'll take your questions and get inside the news operation to see how the WWL folks get it all done.

That's it. Have a good All Saints' Day. Get out to a cemetery and pay your respects.
