I have lots of irons in the fire but today is my best opportunity to post some new content. Here are some links of interest:
‘Enemy for life’: Mayor Mitch Landrieu accused of steamrolling those who disagree with him ~ Tyler Bridges
I heard about this article before it was written and one of the examples I was cited was not mentioned by name in Tyler Bridge’s piece. In it is the reason I think Michael Bagneris is running against Landrieu for Mayor and as such there is a kernel of truth in the criticisms.

Meantime I believe Slabbed was the first website to disclose the GOP was backing Bagneris so excuse me while I take a victory lap and blow raspberries at AROD. ;-)

I saw the Richard Sherman interview with Erin Andrews after the NFC Championship game and thought Andrews was in over her head. Even at its lowest levels, football is all about competition at its most Darwinian. You gotta have a mean streak and the right attitude to excel at it and the cornerback everyone now loves to hate has it all in spades plus some.
Thus when you make the play that put your team in the Super Bowl and do it against the guy from the other team that has been trading trash with you all week, emotions would naturally be running very high. You’d think since Erin Andrews has covered the sport for years she’d been more prepared for Sherman’s outburst. Even better is this nugget from Sherman’s college days at Stanford:
