Because I'm busy practicing my love today, I don't have much for the blog. But I'd like to take this opportunity to be the very last hip Louisiana blogger to promote the awesome Rising Tide Conference in New Orleans from Aug. 25-27. Due to numerous factors (some bad, some good), I won't be able to attend. I'm mad. So mad, in fact, that I'm pumping my fists in righteous anger! Just like anyone who is fed up with government incompetence in New Orleans should be.
After all, why on Earth would any blogger (or anyone else with a heart) want to miss three days of serious discussion (and serious fun) with all the cool people with whom we all keystroke on a daily basis? And to cap it all off with a full day of service to help revive the Big Easy? It's a wonderful cause, and I hope as many of you as possible will be able to attend. Hopefully, Rising Tide will serve as a companion piece to Spike Lee's documentary in reopening the world's eyes to what south Louisianians have seen all year.
The Tide is high. Ride it.
