Welp folks, I don’t think Walter nabbed a “Morel” but I do think he made the right move.
St. Tammany DA Reed says he won’t run again ~ Sara Pagones
When Reed did enter the room, a source said, he delivered the news with a far more blistering attack on the media than he made publicly, calling local journalists “whores and prostitutes.’’ He did not mention the federal grand jury that has been convened to investigate his activities, but instead attributed his decision to retire from elected office entirely to negative news reports, and he instructed employees not to speak to reporters.
Obviously someone in the room did not take Walter’s advice on speaking to the press. Is it me or it that scraping noise I hear coming from the French Quarter and WWL-TV Katie Moore sharpening her knives?
“Whores and prostitutes”, eh? http://t.co/Abug3l0DUq

Worry not for DA Reed as his pension is sure to be fat. Meantime I have this from the archives for historical comparison as Walter appears to be spoiling for a media fight.
