Here I'm Is, Da'American Zombie Woof
~Editilla finds the hair of the dog and hunts wit'it~
Follow our Intrepid Zombie as he takes Cedric Richmond through the William Jeffersonian Spin Cycle. After "Goating" one fey mayoral candidate into obscurity on last years campaign trail, our herolero thus dove under the radar to fly over the hated Oil and cover it for us with his wide-angel Zombie Eye.
But apparently, in secret, he has been busy at work in his Zombie Shop, tinkering and building the next iteration of the Zombie Attack Protocol Asskick (ZAPA)!
The C.O.R. --Chaos and Order Reorganizer-- is a mechanical harrow that looks like a feral Washing Machine fueled by Black Irish Whiskey and China White.
It is designed to masticate, to separate, to extricate da'Pros from da'Cons.
CLANK! Hello!? Is that the sound of an expensive Rolex watch smashing onto the inside Bling Attractor Rods (BARs), as Cedric Richmond begins to slowly unravel, going centrifugal in the Zombie COR? Here I'm is... Woof Indeed!
~"The arrogance of President Obama saying it's religious freedom to build a mosque at ground zero, (that's) equivalent to building a monument to the Army Corps of Engineers where the levees broke in New Orleans."~Hunt Downer, Tea'Tea candidate in the 3rd Congressional District.
~~~OK, how's this for Artifacts Not Politics?

~At ground zero of the 17th Street Canal in Lakeview New Orleans, Levees.org will unveil its first Louisiana State Historic Marker.
The traditional Louisiana state marker, (prototype at right, from the latest New Orleans Magazine, click pic to enlarge) complete with an emblazoned and beloved brown pelican on top, briefly describes the events surrounding the catastrophic breach of the canal’s wall during Katrina. “For too long, visitors to this flooded neighborhood were deprived of dependable information about what happened here,“ says HJ Bosworth Jr, civil engineer and lead researcher for Levees.org. “Now the answer will be there for everyone to see.”

~Karen Gadbois is best known as a serious New Orleans community activist, a crusader whose Squandered Heritage blog and The Lens investigative journalism website have tracked the city's Hurricane Katrina recovery and uncovered wrongdoing by public agencies. But at home, her playful side comes out, expressed in the decor of her Northwest Carrollton home and in her favorite non-work pastime, sewing.
