I’m getting that old familiar feeling again. In my pants. ~moosedenied~I guess it really is in the eye of the beholder, eh? Because for such an "ugly" win, it sure was a thing of beauty to me. I don't know, maybe the Dome smelled of burnt toast all day Sunday, but from where I was sitting, I was getting a big ole whiff of that pungent aroma we all remember from back in 2009. I was smelling Greatness. And it gave me that special kind of boner that I haven't had since those days. If it didn't have that effect on you, well then I consider that a damn shame. Hopefully it'll look a lot different to you when you look back on it in February.
To shamelessly mangle a sentiment once expressed by John F Kennedy: This win wasn't beautiful because it was easy, it was beautiful because it was hard.

~Editilla Re-Memberellas~ We dropped by the station yesterday on our way to Harvest the Music in Lafayette Square. (What a nice example of Living Metaphor!) They're such nice folks and the place smelled like a Nola Food Festival because of all the donated food. There was live music going on, and phones a'ringin...a general air of Faith and Resurrection.
You have to have stood outside the old station in Armstrong Park, during The Flood 8/29/05, to understand what I've meant by the "Screaming Silence" of that day the music died.
But this is New Orleans... our city of Rebirth. Please go online and give them money.
