Re: “Bernie Sanders fires up New Orleans-area crowd at Pontchartrain Center

That's correct. The speech is posted to YouTube now also.

Re: “Super fun Super Bowl: No tailgating at Super Bowl XLVIII

Gambit readers confronted with the image of Super Bowl tailgaters being allowed food and drink only in their vehicles, may be interested in reading this SB Nation collection of Sad Meals Eaten In Cars http://www.sbnation.com/2013/12/9/5190366/…

Re: “Le Diner en Blanc: The Great Doucheby

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.

Re: “Ladder control problem

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

http://www.flickr.com/photos/skooksie/coll…

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.

http://www.flickr.com/photos/skooksie/tags…

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.

Re: “Politifact runs Louisiana drive-thru daiquiri shops through its "Truth-O-Meter"

"They come in many fruity flavors, plus chocolate"

No idea why that line cracks me up so much but it does.
