Hey Leo, I showed my wife Ruth your message and she almost wanted to drive
on down for Mardi Gras to beg for beads (while fully clothed)... the French
Market is one of her favorite places, even though I'm sure it's horribly
touristy compared to, say, 1950. I was at Mardi Gras once, when I was in 8th
grade(!). I'd never seen drunk, topless women wandering through hotel
corridors before...

Speaking of Louisiana, I've set up a bottom mop for my Fundulus euryzonus as
per B.G.'s advice. Nothin' doing' yet, unfortunately.
