Mardi Gras World Back on its Axis


It took three superkrewes, but father and son Blaine and Barry Kern have apparently patched up their differences in a mere four days. Before the obligatory male bonding excursion to hunt squirrels, the founder and heir-apparent of floatmaking empire Blaine Kern Enterprises did what all fathers and sons do to make up: They held a press conference to announce the son's decision to terminate a lawsuit that was filed to oust his father from the family business. The younger Kern will get to retain his seat as president of the company, and he'll presumably have to save his resentment of his 83-year-old father's 34-year-old wife for the couch. Best of all, Mardi Gras isn't ruined, and a Krewe du Vieux subkrewe hard up for ideas just struck gold!
