Mencia: Kudos to the many bloggers whom I credit for sounding the alarm about that prick. I don’t know where the line is between acceptable and not acceptable, but he crossed it. I’m not saying he shouldn’t be allowed to, only that we don’t have to feature him. Thanks, Orpheus.
Mencia II: The bummer is that because the krewe explained that it “safety was a consideration,” he can go around the country saying that it’s so dangerous here he can’t even be safe in a parade. But maybe because the quality of his humor falls somewhere between Dane Cook and that Cable Guy, no one will be there to hear it. BTW, anybody know what happened to this?
Chris Paul’s New Shoes: Will the pope approve of CP3’s new kicks, since they seem simultaneously to honor the debauchery that is Mardi Gras and his Christian faith? Religion, in unimaginably sinful NOLA? Oh, that’s right, Mardi Gras is a Christian event. h/t Mike (bet I can tell where you got em)
Did He Get an MD or a PhD? I didn’t even know Bon Jovi was a doctor, but there it is right there in the schedule for May 2 at JazzFest: “Dr. John, Bon Jovi.” Oh wait, there’s an H there, and a comma. Must be two acts.
Last Weekend’s Highlight: Great job, Editor B and a bunch of other great folks for their efforts on the Beyond Jena forum. It was a great event, and we all got a lot out of it, especially the many students who came.
This Weekend’s Highlight: Tomorrow is Krewe du Vieux, and I’m happy to see that Michael will stop scrutinizing the base among us and join the fold. I’ll bring the initiation sheep.
