Alright, let's get on with it

This here blog started, for all intents and purposes, with last year's Mardi Gras so I suppose we've reached an anniversary of sorts.

But rather than bury ourselves in nostalgia or, say, make some wild predictions for the coming year...
...we're going to say, thanks to all of you for coming by, and now let's rush into the foray. Things start for real tonight and we ain't stopping until Wednesday. As warped and frustrating as things get in New Orleans in the day-to-day, Mardi Gras is release time, when we move more supplely and wear more than one costume and stay out longer and laugh more than we do at any other stretch of days and nights in the year. I've been a little out of it the last few weeks, what with the weather and all, but I woke up feeling ready this morning.

So let's get on with it.
