Go On With Your Bad Selves

Kudos to the folks in New Orleans for trying to get on with it with a diminished but still potent Mardi Gras. While I understand why some folks are sore that people are partying down instead of cleaning up their neighborhoods, you can’t kibosh something like this. Yes the TV coverage reminds us of our national shame*, but that’s they way it goes in the big city. Get over it.
* Cue Fox News to bellyache about the “excessive” coverage.

And how about CNN covering the parades this morning like it was Macy's? How cool is that? Of course you know that had to cheese off Fox News and the hardcore Christians: Fox because it reminds us of our great national shame, a shame they'd coincidentally prefer we forgot about; and the Christians because it's all good heathen Catholic FUN, and besides, you know they were sort of secretly rooting for NOLA to be obliterated anyway.
To hell with the no fun police. Screw those people. Party People of Buffalo let's take to the streets and get some beads! Eat drink and be merry! It's for a good cause, and it's your civic duty.
