With all the excitement over the Saints' winning streak (spit on the ground three times, toss salt over shoulder, bury a bobblehead of Buddy D facing north in the front yard and pour a bottle of Dixie over it), seems we've nearly forgotten about the advent of basketball season. Gambit sports dude Alejandro de los Rios was at Hornets media day, and reports the front office will be doing a full-court press on the players this year to perform...

Also:

• It's our annual report from Project Censored, the top 10 stories that went un- or underreported by the media in 2009...

Allen Johnson Jr. broke the news on Thursday that veteran investigative reporter Richard Angelico will be retiring from WDSU-TV later this month after a 40-year career birddogging the bad guys. Angelico reminisces about some of his most storied stories...

Clancy DuBos casts a dyspeptic eye on the surprising testimony of Greg Meffert this week, and concludes it's hard out there for a cyberpimp...

• It's a play! It's an indie-rock concert! It's a play and an indie-rock concert! Noah Bonaparte Pais previews Finer Noble Gases...

• The 20th New Orleans Film Festival is upon us. Will Coviello got an advance look at some of the hottest titles and provides reviews...

Jeremy Alford reports on the contentiousness between shrimpers and shrimp producers, and says that the two are going to have to get their shrimp together if they want to get ahead...

Ian McNulty goes for a feast at Sammy's, that lunch spot on Elysian Fields between Lowe's and the I-610. (Spoiler: He loves it.)

• and it's time for our monthly health and wellness magazine, H+W (see what we did there?). In this edition: foot pain, childhood obesity, and more.

That's about it. See you on the newsstand beginning Sunday afternoon, and remember: you can always hit us up on Twitter, where we run a little bit looser than we do in the paper.
