Real Estate Records Given Hero's Welcome, Royalties to Be Tripled via Shady Deals


Remember all those real estate records we lost not to neither flood nor fraud, but the unusually banal computer glitch? Well, apparently they've been found - or, at least, restored by some sort of computin' magic. So far, the city spent $300K restoring the records which are crucial to conducting property transactions. All manner of closings, title transfers and refinancing have been held up. Also materializing after weeks of absence was Clerk of Court Dale Atkins, who was at the helm of the rescue effort. She assures us that the records now have three layers of protection. Real estate records, iPad cases (nice name!), women's deodorant and boot liners aren't so different after all.


American Zombie Suspends Feeding on Brains, Offers Brain Food


The situation in New Orleans seems to be rapidly destabilizing. Reports of zombie sitings are coming in from far and wide. At this hour, we're hearing the creatures are disguised as living beings, carrying video cameras, and look really sweaty! American Zombie's real name - Jason Berry - appears this week on an in-depth report at Humid Beings about the computer glitch that continues to hold up property transfers and all sorts of other real estate business. Being a tech guy, it's no surprise that this story is Berry's bread and butter. For the multimedia age, part one of this three-part series comes complete with video of people squinting their eyes and looking really concerned! Making a special appearance at the end are City Councilwomen Stacy Head and Kristin Gisleson-Palmer. A must feed!
