Happy Mardi Gras
1. From MM: Exile is a rotten place to be today.
2. From MC: It's in ya hawt, Mr. Mel. You're carrying it wit' ya wherever you are, and so you got it all over the people you'll be seeing it today.
3. Just remember this pic. The Jefferson City Buzzards begin a march not far from my house and end up in the Quarter. This ragtag bunch of male ne'er-do-wells bring Carnival irrelevance to everyone they encounter on their route. As Dilly (pictured left below with our friend Sean) says: "We do it because it must be done."
I rolled out of bed at 7:25 a.m. and went to get the T-P on my porch. And heard music. I hopped on my bike rode three blocks, and took this picture. That's Mardi Gras.
