Thanks for this post. Will be looking for your
recs on Amazon. Never will forget "1 Dead in
Attic." You go, Chris Rose!

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.

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.
Do you know what it means to miss New Orleans? WE DO!

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.

Hilarious ... almost as good as "Happy Mardi Gras!"
And BTW, how is Vitter, the "moral Christian family man," ahead of Melancon? Did he burn down that house on Canal Street?
Great reporting. Thanks! How we miss Louisiana politics here in the Great Northwest!

Happy to get the news! Having spent my first 37 years in N.O., the Roosevelt was an important part of my history. The Fountain Lounge was a great place for high school kids to have a non-alcoholic drink and listen to the music. My wife and I later enjoyed Tony Bennett and others in the Blue Room.
Looking forward to a Sazerac on our next visit.
