My favorite krewes:
I am especially happy to learn that they have donated $50,000 to the city to help defray the police overtime costs. With the increasing violent crime rates rising, the dregs of society are making their way back, and the more police we have out there the better. Not that it isn't safe, but I want to not have to worry at all.
Mardi Gras parades start next weekend. Time to get the ladder out, give it a fresh coat of paint, make Marley a costume and get ready for the fun. Those of you who know me and aren't coming to take advantage of a free place to stay during Mardi Gras, during our likely last Mardi Gras here are missing out.
