Re: “The Baronne Street bike lane: all kinds of #fail

Having moved from N.O. in 1977 I am not familiar with the Baronne St. bike lane. However, I delivered telegrams (remember those?) for Western Union by bicycle all over the city in the 50"s. The WU office was located on Baronne St. and rode all over the City without incident. Maybe that was a kinder and gentler time in the Big Easy and everyone respected the rules.

Living in Oregon, I ride over 3,000 each year and have not had an incident, but some motorists still have a difficult time in sharing the road.

Keep the bike lane and get used to it.

Re: “Gambit's 2013 Year in Review

Kevin,
The pseudo-hipsters from Corvallis, OR are renting an apartment on 2nd St. off St. Charles for the month of Dec. Would love to see you. Lunch? Sazracs? Name it.

Re: “Ta-ta, TY PARK: Repairs begin on City Park topiary sign

Hi Kevin,
Love this story...saw it on the news here in the hinterlands of Oregon! Just absolutely love your columns...even "The Governor's Wife"... though not so much the actual show ... Well, at least the baby is cute...and we still treasure our "Vote for the crook......" bumper sticker. Thanks for all the good stuff you send our way on Gambit.

Re: “This is why New Orleans can't have a Trader Joe's

Was in our local TJs here in little Corvallis, OR. yesterday. Bought the "usual" ...rice crackers, frozen risotto with asparagus, & baked cheddar cheese sticks...then went to the REAL grocery store down the street.. TJs is a lot of fun, their flowers and potted fresh basil are wonderful, their staff is a friendly hoot in Hawaiian shirts, but everything is way over packaged, especially the produce. We Webfooted, moss backed Oregonians are way more in love with our farmers markets...so we won't cry for your absence of TJs...still remembering the wonderful chaos of Schweggmens...especially the hilarious checkout folks and John S. sitting on a stool near the door of the Airline store...nothing like that at sanitized TJs on the Left Coast.

Re: “The Times-Picayune to publish three times per week.

Kevin, Great reporting on a truly sad, sad story. "T-P, we'll remember your "glory days," even the funny reporting on Mardi Gras "royalty" and "deb debuts." You totally distinguished yourself during the B-P oil disaster, and your Katrina coverage was amazing. Thank you and your loyal employees, who are now cast adrift. Thanks for the memories, but not so much your abrupt and shameful 'good-bye.' "
Again, Kevin, thanks so much for remembering us NOLA natives in Oregon.
