You've Got Your Paczki in My Mardi Gras!

I know posting's been sparse around here lately, but that's because I've been keeping busy with reading, writing, bowling, and getting ready for the big-ass Mardi Gras party this weekend. It doesn't feel quite right having it this early, but what the hey. We're in the Detroit area, where Fat Tuesday's known as Paczki Day anyway.

Now for the New Orleans update: The New York Times takes a look at the City That Care Forgot But Mother Nature Didn't as it prepares for its first post-Katrina Mardi Gras.

I just have to add: Where else but in New Orleans would you find a liquor store named "Hit 'n' Run Liquors"? It sounds like a Simpsons joke.
