Mardi Gras

I love that they have the parade schedule already up. Everything else in that city is basically held to together with tape and a dream, but Mardi Gras is planned out for years to come.

For our 10 year anniversary we are going to NOLA but are unsure if it will be for mardi gras, dirty linen night, jazz fest, French quarter fest or red dress run. So many options. Mardi gras will be expensive travel wise, but we can crash at a friends place, but do I really want to deal with that? I’m old and I like my own bed. Also, too many tourists - will we be able to enjoy our old haunts?

Bomb Threat Targeted Anita Sarkeesian, Gaming Awards Last March →

mostlysignssomeportents:

An anonymous e-mailer threatened to blow up a bomb at the Game Developers Choice Awards this past March unless the hosts rescinded an award recognizing feminist critic Anita Sarkeesian, the organizers of the event have confirmed to Kotaku.

MRAs are the American Taliban, willing to terrorize any woman who dares to speak out, and anyone who gives that woman a platform from which to speak.

The comments on the article are disheartening - even going to say that she called the bomb threat on herself for attention.

LA's Richest Neighborhoods Have Vaccination Rates Lower Than the Poorest Parts of Africa →

therealbbc03:

Hollywood parents say not vaccinating makes “instinctive” sense. Now their kids have whooping cough.

This article has one of the greatest opening lines, "When actors play doctors on TV, that does not make them actual doctors."

So FOX doesn’t think 160 airstrikes constitute military action against ISIS. Just FYI.

The cognitive dissonance is sooooooo strong over there. Sigh.
