Via the Dead Pelican, I am reminded that the New Orleans Saints are playing in a football game tomorrow. In New Orleans, the party has already started and parades are beginning for the Mardi Gras celebration that will culminate in 10 days.
I'm happy for New Orleans. Really, I am. However, they have an important decision to make today and I hope they got up early, went to the polls and cast a ballot before turning their attention to the carnival atmosphere in the city.
Voting is important and events have combined to distract the voters in New Orleans today. This is going to be interesting to watch.
