O.K., it's no secret that I spend lots of time pouring myself over reports, articles, and papers concerning things that most folks have long since forgotten or never even considered. Now, having said that, You may not find the following information funny and to be certain it was probably quite a miserable experience to wind up on a list like the one below. But never the less, the humor comes from the way One  was viewed by authority and the notion of how they would view us today, because with brew ha has like the Wiener Scandal informs me of how we see them! So, if You decide to venture in to my world a bit, I want You to bear in mind that one of the big draws to all that is New Orleans, is that things here haven't changed much!
