As we wade through the traditional Election Day Eve flooding to celebrate our right to swim to a voting booth, let's look back at the week before we finally, finally reached the presidential election. (If you missed some Halloween-y stuff, check last week's bonus edition.)

Posted By on Tue, Nov 1, 2016 at 6:30 PM


We bring you this (really) late edition to fit in some of your spooky Halloween tweets, plus terrifying tales from the Pelicans, and R.I.P. @BeingNOLA, who gave us a few final questionnaires before going to that big blue checkmark in the sky.

New Orleans survived another collective cardiac arrest brought on by our unrealistic expectations for success in sports crashing into a wall of reality. On to the next one. Also this week: comedians desecrate the city and false clown reports.

Y@ Speak: debatable

Posted By on Mon, Sep 26, 2016 at 6:38 PM


Remember 20 years ago when you tweeted about Disney's gumbo recipe? This week's edition spans a little longer than usual because we missed you last week. But this past week? I don't have enough fingers to chef kiss. David Duke looked like the end of Raiders of the Lost Ark, Beyonce and Big Freedia are the only people that New Orleans fans are happy about playing in the Superdome so far this month, and we begin the inaugural Complaining About the Fried Chicken Festival.

Y@ Speak: a golden anniversary

Posted By on Mon, Sep 12, 2016 at 7:00 PM

Let us reflect on the legacy of the New Orleans Saints on their 50th anniversary: millions of heart attacks. Also this week, as we begin another season of cold stares into a dark horizon: Sturgill, Joanna and Kraftwerk (and Solange), plus Drew Brees walking with a wheelbarrow overflowing with bags with dollar signs on them, and we meet a man named Two Tacos.

  • Former New Orleans Saint Darren Sharper.

Darren Sharper, the former NFL safety who played with the New Orleans Saints in 2009 and 2010, was sentenced to 18 years and four months in federal prison this morning. He previously had pleaded guilty of conspiracy to distribute drugs with the intent to commit rape in four jurisdictions, including New Orleans.

Sharper earlier had negotiated a plea deal that would have netted him nine years in prison, but U.S. District Judge Jane Triche Milazzo rejected the deal, saying his crimes were too serious.

Below the cut: the statement from U.S. Attorney Kenneth Polite's office.

Y@ Speak: "the sky's the limit"

Posted By on Mon, Aug 1, 2016 at 7:34 PM

Lil Wayne endorses Hillary Clinton after she maybe referenced Da Drought (or, more likely, her own speech in 2008), the Louisiana delegation steals the show, and New Orleans in deep summer means exploding streets, snakes eating bicyclists, and tourists who should be fired into the sun.
