NYT on Louisiana Geographies
Proving that we're still sexy for spring, The New York Times' fascination with New Orleans and the entirety of Louisiana continues this weekend. This time, it's our geography they're goin' after. With today's primary underway, the gray lady's FiveThirtyEight blog takes a look at the locations and voting habits of the state's Republican electorate with some really nice maps. Meanwhile, in the Sunday magazine, author Nathaniel Rich takes his stand down in Jungleland, aka the Lower 9. Rich's take on geography is more academic, with profs taking a star turn. But don't worry, there are animals and complaints about disaster tours, too.

What do people think about the Bounty Basting, Drew Brees and most importantly, Les Miles?

While campaigning in Mississippi last week, Romeny told a crowd, "The governor said I had to say it right. Morning Y'all," then went on to talk about eating biscuits and cheesy grits in a shameless pander to Wafflehouse patrons. It did not play well. Yet, this morning at Clearview Mall in Metairie, Romney reportedly reached back for another "y'all." This, time, however, he thought better of it.
