Y@ Speak: Bye, Times-Picayune

Posted By on Tue, Oct 2, 2012 at 10:23 AM


This weekend we said goodbye to the the daily Times-Picayune and our favorite reporters who worked there. That loss dovetailed with another loss, that by the Saints, so what a dumb weekend. Also this week: Louisiana people on The Voice, the Fiona Apple show, replacement refs, and people have opinions about Treme.

(Also, sorry for the delay. Your tweet forager was a bit under the weather yesterday.)

Y@ Speak 9/24-10/1
