Y@ Speak: Boil water advisory edition

Posted By on Mon, Mar 4, 2013 at 12:13 PM


Another day, another boil advisory: that means New Orleanians drink more breakfast cocktails than usual, use a fear of amoeba-laden water as an excuse to neglect personal hygiene, and complain on Twitter using an iThing that we live in a Third World country. Also this week: unsubstantiated rumors about Les Miles, interesting local signage and the AP Stylebook-approved way to write a delicious New Orleans sandwich.
