This is a consent decree for cities who have no real outdoor festival tradition. Dubious instructions for improving matters coupled with unfunded mandate on participants to do all the work.
I guess I can answer that. I do take hundreds of photos at Mardi Gras every year. Over the past 8 years I've been posting many of them to Flickr
And many of those plus some others to the yellow blog. And I have more... many more that have not yet been approved for publication on the illustrious internet.
I've only tagged a handful of the Flickr collection "ladders" That batch is here if you want to see it.
But there are many more untagged and unposted I could show you any time if you like.
Anyway, I'm a little puzzled as to why this has become a conversation about me. I'm just one guy who goes to a lot of parades. As you can see from other comments in this thread, I'm far from the only witness to the issue at hand in this article.
The point is the violations are rampant along the route and I and many others would like to see the situation improved so that we can all enjoy Carnival.
Here is what Gambit is endorsing through its support of Sarah Usdin.
"They come in many fruity flavors, plus chocolate"
No idea why that line cracks me up so much but it does.
Wait. Hecht and Jacobs' "robust" site is called what, again? http://www.bopandtigerbeat.com/
Isn't simple courtesy the real aim here? If you can snap a picture or two without holding your phone in front of anybody, why not do that? Same goes for texting/tweeting during a show. Isn't that better than talking over the act? Who could it possibly be distracting besides the person doing it? Why not just let that be?
