Of food and floating mammals

The New York Times says that the Times-Picayune is reviewing New Orleans-area restaurants again, for the first time since the storm. Which is something I wouldn’t have ordinarily noticed, since I don’t subscribe to the Picayune and since its online version makes my eyes bleed. Still, you have to wonder: if the paper is going to relaunch its reviews, and if New Orleans has more restaurants now than before Katrina, why the hell would the Picayune wanna review an eatery that’s been around for decades–much less one as dull and snoozy as Mr. B’s? Srsly.

Also: apparently, we have manatees. Watch out.

    Don’t they have anything bettre’ to do?!

    Especially, while we watch this oil defeat us and our wildlife.

    I will not be defeated by anything any one can write in the New York Times.

    And, all this on the heels of the 3rd anniversary of hurricane Katrina.

    They still haven’t made a move on their five blocks either.

    Manatees aren’t that strange, and out of place.

    Louisiana is a subtropical environment now.

    Manatees have summered in our waters for all of my life.
