Wednesday afternoon news dump

Posted By on Wed, Sep 2, 2009 at 5:50 PM

H1N1'S COMING: Secretary of Homeland Security Janet Napolitano says to expect a "big influx" of swine flu very soon. Gambit, always ahead of the latest trends, has already gotten in on the action and we now have hand sanitizers all over the building ...

THE BESH IS BACK: Domenica, John Besh's new joint in the Roosevelt Hotel, opened last night. Robert Peyton ate there and shares the experience ...

BIG NUMBERS FOR SOUTHERN DECADENCE: New Orleans CityBusiness reporting hoteliers and merchants expecting big returns from this year's Southern Decadence weekend ...

SPEAKING OF DECADENCE: guards in at the U.S. embassy in Afghanistan seem to have been up to a bit of it themselves. Not-safe-for-work photos here. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton is ordering a probe of the situation. No word on whether the Rev. Grant Storms will be jetting to Kabul to protest.

LEVI SPEAKS: And the world's most famous unwed father, Levi Johnston, tells all to Vanity Fair -- including this claim:

Sarah told me she had a great idea: we would keep it a secret—nobody would know that Bristol was pregnant. She told me that once Bristol had the baby she and Todd would adopt him. That way, she said, Bristol and I didn’t have to worry about anything. Sarah kept mentioning this plan. She was nagging—she wouldn’t give up. She would say, “So, are you gonna let me adopt him?” We both kept telling her we were definitely not going to let her adopt the baby. I think Sarah wanted to make Bristol look good, and she didn’t want people to know that her 17-year-old daughter was going to have a kid.

No response from the Palin camp yet, but Thanksgiving dinner this year is sure to be awkward.

AND FINALLY: A woman in Zachary shoplifts a case of beer by hiding it under her dress:

Grocery store cameras caught a woman, identified by police as 42-year-old Lisa Newsome, grabbing a 24-pack of beer from a cooler, pulling her up housedress, putting a case between her thighs and waddling out of a store with the beer safely secured.

When she was caught, she did not deny the incident and rather told Capt. David McDavid of the Zachary Police Department that “She wanted to demonstrate it…”, to which he declined and said, “he wasn’t into that”.

Enjoy the weather while you can. Sticky and humid coming back this weekend.
