Forum on the Future of New Orleans Journalism, Live Streamed


From 7-9 p.m. tonight at Loyola University's Nunemaker Auditorium, media mavens and the public are gathered at a forum to consider the future of New Orleans journalism in the wake of the cuts at the Times-Picayune. At the forum, the panel and public will consider what kind of news and information they want, and how they want it delivered. For those who can't make it, The Lens is live streaming the event.


Jack Dempsey, Legend in His Own Time, Passes


Down near the end of Poland Avenue, there's a neighborhood steak and seafood joint that seems like a relic from its own time. Jack Dempsey's is legendary around the Bywater, and it turns out its not named for the legendary heavyweight champion. According to the T-P, the restaurant's namesake is a longtime local crime reporter who was the sort of guy that would pretend he was a doctor to get stories and sing Huey Long's theme song at parties. He was never called the champ, but he signed all of his stories "ALIHOT" - A legend in his own time. Da Paper has the obit for Dempsey, who died today at age 92.
