It’s the first parade of the Carnival season, as well as the most profane, roasting any public official reviled by New Orleans residents. More photos.
The parade was moving way too fast to get clear photos, or to even read some of the political roasts on floats and costumes. Last year’s parade was possibly the best Krewe du Vieux ever. I hollered at Ashley, but he was moving too fast as well. I didn’t get a glimpse of any other nefarious characters.
I apologize for falling behind on posts. There’s just a lot going on lately, including a project to completely migrate PGR off of WordPress.com to my own host.
My hope today: that Payton Manning and the Colts do to Chicago fans what Chicago fans did to New Orleans fans — finish what the Great Chicago Fire started (compare how New Orleanians treat visiting fans here).
