~I know it's unfair to compare New Orleans Saints Coach Sean Payton and former New Orleans mayor Ray Nagin, but the two now share something other than a Lombardi Gras parade toast: Controversy. The news that Payton plans to move his family to a Dallas suburb won't be embraced or celebrated anytime soon by Saints fans, especially the hometown Who Dats.

Gambit's Bouquets and Brickbats ~Levees.org~The New York Times missed the mark when the paper responded to a Levees.org petition requesting a correction to a December 2010 story, which had ascribed the 2005 floods to "Hurricane Katrina" and not the federal levee failures. Senior editor Don Hecker wrote that the error was cited "out of context." Those are the sort of weasel words a newspaper is supposed to debunk, not use to defend its own mistakes.
