Dominicales Omnibus: Altis tenuibusque conciliat!

Indeed it does does folks because the news gods favor Slabbed New Media this morning.  First up because you heard it here first:

Catching up with South Mississippi’s Gene Taylor and Trent Lott ~ Da Noose and Nelson

(Gene) saved the county up to $45,000 in labor.

Does he consider getting back into politics?

“Sometimes I do,” he said. “Like when I see this mess with the National Flood Insurance (Program) — Congress holding a gun to people’s heads and the best they’re offering is a year extension.”

It’s frustrating, he said, the inflated premiums, “which will adversely effect so many people down here and knowing that I know there’s a better solution.”

Indeed there is a better way. Michael and Karen’s piece also solved a mystery as the Dunbar Pier is close by. Altis Tenuibusque comes at a price thus my surprise at seeing the public pier fixed a few weeks back and not knowing it was a community production. And yeah Gene, please run because this area needs you in Washington!

That said the advantages of Altis Tenuibusque are also very clear as today’s missive will illustrate but first we have major news from the New Orleans Media Congroovancy as Ace Investigative Reporter Nell Nolan leaves the House of News to join the Lucky Coin Today. A fair read of these pages well illustrates why Slabbed New Media has come to conclude that Nolan was Ashton Phelps best hire bar none during his tenure as publisher of the T-P and Nell goes back farther than that to the old States Item, which I well remember because we used to get it in Waveland back in the olden days. Plus if Nell ever decides to leave the news biz a very lucrative career pumping the pinks awaits. Either way I’m a fan for life.

Now for the best political gossip from Jefferson Parish bar none because I have it.  I’m hearing from multiple sources it is likely that Parish Prez John Young will not seek re election. In the event that prediction comes to fruition here are the scenarios: Continue reading “Dominicales Omnibus: Altis tenuibusque conciliat!”

Slabbed News Miscellany: I'm not sure just how to present these items…

First of all folks it has come to my attention there is a missing episode of Magnum J.D. starring Eric Paulsen, Diane Hollis, Phyllis George, Dr. Laura Badeaux, Cindy Cenac, Julie Quinn, Faith Peperone, Sonia Perez, Kathleen Diamond and Elizabeth Dent.  According to my sources, screen writer Nell Nolan had the ladies situated poolside enjoying the fine spring day over at Mag’s place on St Chas. A tip of the Slabbed hat to several readers on the disappearance of the episode which also has Magnum out of town trying to ascertain his real place of birth.

Next up is Saints Owner Tom Benson getting the pope to genuflect before him and kiss his Super Bowl ring. Folks in Catholicism these days the times they are a changin’.

I’d like to recognize the Magnolia Report for linking us on their headline page. Merci Beaucoup. Along those lines I’d also like to thank our new friends over at Moosedenied for the very kind words over on Twitter. Grandmaster Wang has some good stuff on Vaggie Bush.
