Re: “Blakeview: Godchaux’s

Don't forget the Godchaux Dairy on Calhoun Street in the 1930s, located where Sunshine Daydream is today, across from Ted's Frostop. The Godchaux family was related by marriage to many other Jewish immigrant merchants of the day, including the Fellmans, Sterns (Sears), Fieblemans, Hillers, Newmans (Maison Blanche), Krausses, Mayer Israel, etc.

Re: “Cynthia Willard-Lewis and Gail Glapion to star in Oliver Thomas' sequel to his play Reflections

Easy to explain: CWL thought the title was "Reelections." And Glapion misread it as "Deflections." 'nuf said. They are all "Rejections."

We often hear of marriages wherein one or the other spouse "comes out of the closet". What if BOTH a husband and his wife did so?? I'd love to hear what this hypocritical court would say about the fate of their adopted child! Would the State presume to remove a child from a home that now declares itself to have "a gay married couple" (i.e. a gay man married to his lesbian wife)? Someone should test such a case in Louisiana, and expose the Supreme Court as the buffoons they so clearly are.

Re: “QR as Folk

Sadly, few readers (not even most techies!) know that the URL-shortening service GOO.GL (a free Google service, recently opened to the public) automatically creates these graphic QR codes. All you do is append .qr to the end of any GOO.GL-shortened link:

Re: “Disc Golf at City Park

How does this lengthy article manage NEVER to mention the (surely it's gone by now) Frisbee Golf course that was just up the river in Destrehan? We used to play out there all the time in the 1990's, and it was an excellent location (in the woods, just off River Road by the I-310).
So sad that I finally SOLD my discs last month, and now I read this!!
