Mmmm, Chicago's St. Paddy's Day Parade was a success!

However, I should mention a few things about Mardi Gras in New Orleans... several people disagreed with me when I said this would be the biggest Mardi Gras in years... and I was right. Some things to mention:

A man who sat on his roof during the flooding... with nothing but a bunch of Gatorade and a shotgun.

"We'll have a Mardi Gras even if we have to take 'floats' literally."

A man dressed in a Mardi Gras costume: a 2000-pound sandbag.

A sign that said "KATRINA, COME BACK, YOU BITCH!"

And back to St. Paddy's Day... a man offered a girl standing next to me a joint for a green bead necklace. He later hugged my dad when he (my dad) gave him a shamrock sticker.

Erin Go Bragh!
