Trick, get off me

2000 zero zero party over, oops, out of time!

You go, New Orleans. Party like it's 1999, pre-Katrina. Get your King Cake on. Catch you some throws. Do it Big Willy style. Mardi Gras is headline news like never before. I've never seen so many of the neighborhood parades on TV.

I'm waiting, though, for glimpses of the legendary Zulu Parade.

So here's a shout to all the people of New Orleans. You've been through a lot and still have quite a haul to go. Hope you're enjoying the spirit of your beautiful celebration wherever you may be.

A special holla at the 504 Hip-hop community. Happy Mardi Gras to the New Orleans hip-hop community Master P. Juvenile. Lil Wayne. Hot Boys. Chopper. Mystical... Many of y'all showed up in the aftermath of Kat. Hope the city lifts a light for your contributions and support in ways that make you feel real special.

Happy Mardi Gras everyone! Don't forget to give up something for Lent tomorrow. I can't say what I'm giving up, but I will miss it. :-)

I'm glad that New Orleans still carried on the tradition of Mardi Gras...Essence Festival should have stayed in New Orleans.

best of luck with sticking to giving up something for Lent. i've already gone back on what i "half-committed" to doing without.

hi professorgq,
you know, i'll have to look into exactly why Essence moved their Fest. i know that NOLA's JazzFest decided early after Katrina to stay the course, so kind of wonder why Essence decided on Houston.
