2013 is going out with a bang: Drug related double murder in Metairie

But first a word from the good folks at Trip AdvisorTM:

Arrived Tuesday before Thanksgiving. Tub was filthy. Coffee pot had old coffee and mildew in it. One of two full beds had hair and dirt on sheets. Wound up having to clean tub before even taking a shower.

Told front desk and property manager Wednesday. Cleaning staff cleaned coffee pot but not the bed.

Told them again Friday. Property manager claimed sheets were not changed because “Do Not Disturb” sign was on the door. When I asked how the coffee pot got cleaned, he had no response.

Breakfast staff very nice and helpful. Actual fod(sic) items very poor Night shift desk person drunk (male) could not adjust water tempereture(sic)

This was not one of the finest hotels I have been accostumed(sic) to. The service was fine, but the hotel elevators smelled of urine, the actual room had a moldy odor. The comforters also, I just slept in the sheets. The shower was impossible to get to the temperature of my liking

As in this cautionary tale of bankers,

You will all know the basic story,
In all its venal details, gory.
Of how a bunch of peerless clowns
Despite degrees – from Yale to Brown –
Behaved like schoolboys in the lab,
When teacher’s gone to smoke a fag……..

Their attitudes were so repulsive
The public backlash grew convulsive,
And dimly seeing that their wages
Just might be threatened by these rages,
Self-interest prompted some to say
“We’re sorry” – in a muted way. Continue reading “Thank God for Arizona Part 3: Blaming the surge in drug violence on the Mexicans. God damn the pusher man (and his U.S. banker).”
