University President Lost in Lafitte
Dr. Francisco Piedrahitas is the president of Icesi University in Colombia. he came to New Orleans to discuss accreditation and the state of business at Tulane, but decided to soak in the sights. Kudos to Piedrahitos, who decided to forgo Bourbon, and indulge in his love of nature by taking a trip to Pecan Grove Trail in Jean Lafitte National Park. He asked a cabbie to wait 25 minutes, but never returned. After two hours, authorities were contacted, and a search is underway. Details here, and here.

In response to the Louisiana Workforce Commission's employment report released Tuesday, we've got City Business reporting that the New Orleans area gained 1,000 jobs in April, whereas the Times-Pic assesses the situation as 1,000 jobs lost. Which is it? Is this a "glass half full" editorial decision, or just a failure of graph-reading? One thing's for sure – the GNO unemployment rate for April stands at 6.1 percent, a number far below the national rate of 9.9 percent. We'll stop complaining about our (low-paying, lacking-in-benefits, total-waste-of-our-degree-in-Renaissance-art-history) service industry jobs now.
