Did this picture bother anybody else as much as it bothered me?

This ran on the front page of the T-P.

Yuck. A 9-year-old kid "enjoying" Jazz Fest. Where were his parents?

I waded through and got out of the standing water as quickly as I could, but now I have a lovely rash around both my ankles. Yuck.

This was not the worst swimmer I saw at JazzFest. There was a 5 year old kid who actually had his head under the water where the dirt track meets the infield. And you just know they don't use commercial fertilizer, not with all those horse stalls back there...

Well, I can tell I must be one of the only ones who spent his childhood swimming in Lake Pontchartrain beneath the camps on Haynes Blvd....LOL. You guys with your antibacterials are the reason we have "super-bugs" now! LOL
