A Jellyfish in Full Color

The New Orleans aquarium is re-opening. Some people consider this an important milestone in the rebuilding of our city. Margaret Edwards of Metairie does not.*

* Read it! Read it! It's short and brilliantly awful. I promise, you'll love it.

    Thank you for that link. Oh, dear Lord, thank you for letting me live on this side of the Jeff Parish line.

    The city after Margaret Edwards' heart is Charlottesville, VA where one of the front page articles on Thursday was the winner of the 'American Idol'!!!!

  3. Imagine! The re-opening of one of the country's top 5 aquariums, in a city devestated by the worst natural disaster in American history - a city that needs every green dollar it can generate - imagine THAT topping the winner of a talent show! Get the smelling salts!

  4. I would love it (and you for pointing me towards it) - except I just got yelled at....

    For laughing violently as I took a big sip of Diet Coke whilst reading Margaret's letter.

    Seems my husband is very possessive of his computer monitor.

    Ah well - it's nice to know that everyone has their priorities.... :)

  5. So disgusting. I hope her house gets flooded next year so she can understand why Katrina is still making the papers. Clearly, she isn't living in a post-K world. Getting worked up about the possibility of trailers in her parish is all she's dabbled in. I'm sure she got pissed off when she had to hear about the Pulitzer prizes. So disappointed it wasn't the people's choice awards. Metairie: so close to New Orleans, and yet so far from culture.

  6. "Jellyfish steal an idol's glory" sounds like a great jumping off point for a song lyric.
