What a weird, sad week! Besides feeling devoid of energy and purpose after two weekends of Jazz Fest, this week was replete with many sad and confusing moments. Beloved children's author Maurice Sendak died. President Barack Obama spoke in support of gay marriage, but only after North Carolina voted to outlaw it. And, maybe not as important but certainly disorienting for some, nola.com got a bold facelift. I hope we can all go back to posting twitpics of crawfish and celebrity sightings next week.
