And there has been a lot happen since I descended into the salt mine. I appreciated the continued commentary on the situation in the Bay from the commenting community here.

I have been able to clarify that chatter from last night. Yesterday Scott Walker did indeed go to Ocean Springs City Hall and pick up qualifying papers for municipal office but he has has not filed any papers on his own behalf to qualify. This bears keeping an eye on to see what develops.
Slabbed is putting out this public service notice that everyone should keep an eye out for counterfeiters this coming Second Saturday in Old Town Bay St Louis, the Coolest Small Town this side of Mayberry.
