...because the arena kind of looks like a toilet anyway?~Louisiana seafood marketing group says it may buy naming rights to New Orleans Arena.
Ohhhhhhh....yeah....I know....that was really nasty. But you know what? I'm not going to back off until these morons realize they have a serious fucking problem instead of taking BP's hush cash and spending it on stupid shit like this. This is a slap in the face to all the sick men, women and children along the Gulf Coast.
If the Louisiana Seafood Marketing Group is going to spend that amount of money on buying naming rights to the New Orleans Arena....I think we should change the Hornets mascot to the "dead dolphins". That picture above (taken on Grand Isle....last week (by Mac Mackenzie) should be plastered across the front of the arena.

Corps of Engineers facing a late start on independent levee review: An editorial
~Editilla pops a blood vessel all over the Times-Picayune~
That at right btw is Your newspaper embedded literally in an Exquisite Corps funereal floodwall.
You guys are a real piece of work down here at the T-P Editorial office.
Y'all remember that one? I mean really, you don't seem to remember Shilla Grissetts milktoast reportage on the levee debris later either.
You further insult us with this "editorial" on the Corps forming their own "Independent Levee Investigation"? BWAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA
I cannot accurately describe my abject horror at your Alligator Tears.
Remember when this all started. I remember how Sandy Rosenthal asked 1 simple question: "If we allow the Corps to investigate itself, what do you think they'll find?" And thus was born the movement to establish an 8/29 Independent Levee Review. You can find all this on the Levees.org website.
Since then, we've had to deal with untold heinous astroturf trollers on these very pages, in addition to battling the T-P to just stop calling it Katrina --let alone for y'all to do any valid reporting on the Corps total domination of our flood control recovery. At every step of the way, the T-P dropped the ball. In fact, y'all accepted over $100,000 in Ad Revenue from the Corps Succubus PR Mavens at Optimal Process Partners ---and laughed at us for caring enough to call you on it thank you very much! So we will get what we deserve from the Corps of Engineers, and we will not like it.
Tiger Team My Ass.
