~Clancy Dubos

~This just in~A spokesman for insurance executive
Leslie Jacobs also sent out a statement during the press conference saying Jacobs will qualify tomorrow, despite rumors that a Landrieu candidacy may cause her to drop out.
~Your Right Hand Thief~Good gracious.
I had discounted the recent polling he was doing, and didn't think he would jump in. Is it wrong to be attracted to Sarah Palin if she wears Maoist gear?

~Slabbed~Offers us this special tome to cover all the current Mayoral Offings like a crib blanket in a brothel, from Ray Davies --who knows his who'dats and loves New Orleans so much as to get himself shot here and still pen this lovely love song: Nola.

~Terrence "Rock" Salt, who oversees Corps operations as principal deputy assistant secretary of the Army, warned that it will take time to change the way the corps does business.
"The corps is able to adjust to different directions when people give them those directions," said Rock Salt. "There's some inertia, of course. It's going to take a while for them to learn."
~~Salt has spent much of his career on restoring the Kissimmee River and the Glades, holding key posts for both the Corps and the Department of Interior, agencies that have often clashed over plans.~Paving Paradise

~“As out of several hundreds of thousands of the substrate programs comes an adaptable changing set of thousands of metaprograms, so out of the metaprograms as substrate comes something else….In a well-organized biocomputer, there is at least one such critical control metaprogram labeled I for acting on other metaprograms and labeled me when acted upon by other metaprograms. I say at least one advisedly….”
Feels like floatin. Wrong smells come under the right ones, like the last few times. She got the table polished with lemon oil, or somethin similar, but what is that? Stronger than before, what is it, fish? Also stinks like Fourth a July, after all the firecrackers set off. I look around but only thing burnin is the candles, big circle of ’em, waverin on the table in front a me.
