 Good Morning NOLA!  Can say Beautiful?  What an awesome day!  Clear today with plenty of sunshine.  Our high for today is in the upper sixties, almost reaching that seventies mark.  No rain to be seen.  Mr. Sunshine has dried that dampness right out of the air. I just can’t get enough of this.  Iam sitting out on the balcony listening to the fountain, not rain drops on the courtyard. Clear and cooler tonight which is a good thing since I will be on the set of Contraband this evening.  Good riddance rain!  It’s a great day to be out and about and tomorrow is shaping up to be the same.  I don’t know about you but I think I might make a trip to the French market.  I hear there will be live music out there on Saturday. I can’t wait. That is what I love about this city, there is always something going on.   Sorry to say Sunday will not be as nice according to the forecast.  We have a fifty percent chance of rain.  Boo! Have a wonderful Friday y’all!  I’ll see in NOLA!

 Good Morning NOLA!  I’m singing in the rain this morning.  How about you?  Gues what I’m singing?  How about “Rain, Rain go away”??  Well, we can sing all we want but it looks like we are stuck with it for the next couple of days.  There is an eighty percent chance today and one hundred percent chance tomorrow. The high for today just might reach the sixities with the low tonight in the forties.  Once the rain clears out by Wednesday the temps will be dropping once again with our overnight lows back in thirites. The silver lining on this cloud is once the rain passes through we don’t have to worry about it until again until next week.  Try to stay dry in the mean time.  Have a great NOLa day!

Toughest places to play in sports?

What sports venues, of any sport, are the toughest to play in as the visiting team? Were talking huge crowd support, die hard fans, fan sections, traditions, fan numbers, location, and any other factors that just define "Home Field Advantage." For me, mainly college football and basketball stadiums come to mind.

Ive gotta say:
Death Valley (LSU Tigers)
American Airlines Center (Dallas Mavericks)
Ohio Stadium (Ohio State Buckeyes Football)
Arrowhead Stadium (Kansas City Chiefs)
Cameron Indoor Stadium (Duke Blue Devils Mens Col. BB)
Heinz Field (Pittsburgh Steelers)
Fenway Park (Boston Red Sox)
Ben Hill Griffin Stadium (Florida Gators Football)
Michigan Stadium (Michigan Wolverines Football)
Soldier Field, especially in the playoffs (Chicago Bears)
Louisiana Superdome (New Orleans Saints)
RCA Dome (Indy Colts)
Lambeau Field (GB Packers)

ohio stadium
the jerome schottenstein center
GO BUCKS!!!!

Good Morning NOLA!  In case you didn’t know it, it’s Friday!  Are you ready for the weekend? I am. Looks like a little warmer weather for us here in the Big Easy today.  everything is relative, right?  Partly cloudy but the good news is no rain yet so you can leave the umbrella at home.  Highs will make it into the fifties but you will still need your jacket.  I’m gearing up for a weekend with my grandbabies enjoying all of our  favorite NOLA eats, sights and sounds. Look out French Quarter here we come.  It will take more than a little cold weather to keep us in. I think candy apples and chargrilled oysters are just a couple of the things on the to-do list. Enjoy your day, I know I will! See you in NOLA!

Apart from Louisiana, is there still a lot of French culture in the South?

I was watching the Golden Girls, and the character Blanche Devereaux from Virginia is very Southern but has a French name

The french colonized up and down the eastern seaboard, so you’ll find french surnames. But no, there isnt any french speaking towns like in louisiana. Some places in Vermont, but thats up north.

Will I like living in Louisiana?

I’m a junior in high school and this is the time of the year we start talking about college decisions. I’ve already made up my mind that I want to leave this area and go south. I live in Northern Kentucky and have my whole life, and I’m soooo ready to leave lol. I know it’s a big decision, but I know it’s what I want to do. I’ve been researching schools online and requesting information and as of right now my first choice school is University of Louisiana in Lafayette. The only thing that scares me is how different in will be culturally. I want to go south but it will be a huge change. Yeah, I live in KY but NKY. Pretty much a run off of Cincinnati. I was just wondering if anyone can tell me some things about Louisiana culture and what to expect. What are the people like? Weather? All of that lol. Thanks [: (I’m not sure if this is the right category but it’s close lol)

I graduated from ULL, and I can tell you it’s a great value if you don’t want to spend too much. It has excellent, nationally recognized programs in nursing and computer science, for example. The culture will be quite different from N. KY, but college should be an adventure, right? Lafayette is a very diverse city, and the people are very hospitable, which makes it easier to adjust. The food is great, the weather is extremely humid (we’re already getting into the 80’s!), as already mentioned. Really, there’s nothing to be afraid of, it’s just DIFFERENT :)

what happened at the pentagon?was it like so many believe?

Question by comingonthru: what happened at the pentagon?was it like so many believe?
“9/11 Truth Movement”, Pentagon Strike”-Video and Griffin hits Washington Post

On the second international “9/11 was an Inside Job” day, Carol Morello (WP) revealed the real identity of “W” aka Darren Williams, who created the worldwide popular “Pentagon Strike” flash video, reported about the 9/11 Truth Movement and mentioned David Ray Griffin as one of the successful 9/11 truth book authors:

“We discussed the theories,” said Philip D. Zelikow, the commission’s executive director…you know government is not nearly competent enough to carry off elaborate theories

Conspiracy Theories Flourish on the Internet

WP-October 7

By Carol Morello
Washington Post Staff Writer
Thursday, October 7, 2004; Page B01

Working from his home office in a small town in England, Darren Williams spent four weeks this summer making a short but startling video that raises novel questions about the 2001 attack on the Pentagon.

The video, “9/11: Pentagon Strike,” suggests that it was not American Airlines Flight 77 that slammed into the Pentagon, but a missile or a small plane.

With rock music as a backdrop, the video offers flashes of photographs taken shortly after impact, interspersed with witness accounts. The pictures seem incompatible with damage caused by a jumbo jet, and no one mentions seeing one. Red arrows point to unbroken windows in the burning building. Firefighters stand outside a perfectly round hole in a Pentagon wall where the Boeing 757 punched through; it is less than 20 feet in diameter…

Propelled by word of mouth, Internet search engines and e-mail, the video has been downloaded by millions of people around the world.

American history is rife with conspiracy theories. Extremists have fed rumors of secret plots by Masons, bankers, Catholics and Communists. But now urban legends have become cyberlegends, and suspicions speed their way globally not over months and weeks but within days and hours on the Web.

“The dissemination is almost immediate,” said Doug Thomas, a University of Southern California communications professor who teaches classes on technology and subgroups. “It’s not just one Web site saying, ‘Hey, look at this.’ It’s 10,000 people sending e-mails to 10 friends, and then they send it on.”

The Pentagon video could be a case study. Williams created a Web site for the video, www.pentagonstrike.co.uk. Then he e-mailed a copy to Laura Knight-Jadczyk, an American author living in France whose books include one on alien abduction. Williams, 31, a systems analyst, belongs to an online group hosted by Knight-Jadczyk that blends discussions of science, politics and the paranormal.

On Aug. 23, Knight-Jadczyk posted a link to the video on the group’s Web site, www.Cassiopaea.org. Within 36 hours, Williams’s site collapsed under the crush of tens of thousands of visitors. But there were others to fill the void.

In Texas, a former casino worker who downloaded the video began drawing almost 700,000 visitors a day to his libertarian site. In Louisiana, a young Navy specialist put the video on his personal Web page, usually visited by a few friends and relatives; suddenly, the site was inundated by more than 20,000 hits. In Alberta, traffic to a cabdriver’s site shot up more than sixfold after he supplied a link to the video.

Across thousands of sites, demand for the video was so great that some webmasters solicited donations to pay for the extra bandwidth.

“Pentagon Strike” is just the latest and flashiest example of a growing number of Web sites, books and videos contending that something other than a commercial airliner hit the Pentagon.

Most make their case through the selective use of photographs and eyewitness accounts reported during the confusion of the first hours after the attack. They say they don’t know what really happened to American Airlines Flight 77 and don’t offer other explanations. The doubters say they are just asking questions that have not been answered satisfactorily.

The ready and growing audience for conspiracy theories about the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks has been particularly galling to those who worked on the National Commission on Terrorist Attacks Upon the United States, the bipartisan panel known as the 9/11 commission.

“We discussed the theories,” said Philip D. Zelikow, the commission’s executive director. “When we wrote the report, we were also careful not to answer all the theories. It’s like playing Whack-A-Mole. You’re never going to whack them all. They satisfy a deep need in the people who create them. What we tried to do instead was to affirmatively tell what was true and tell it adding a lot of critical details that we knew would help dispel concerns.”

… The belief that the government is lying about the Sept. 11 attacks is coming from both the right and the left. Experts say more than suspicion of the Bush administration is at work.

… David Ray Griffin considers himself an unlikely recruit to what is called the “9/11 Truth Movement.” The retired theologian, who taught religion for three decades at Claremont School of Theology, initially dismissed the notion that it was not an airliner that hit the Pentagon. But after visiting several Internet sites raising questions about the attack, he ended up writing a book. “The New Pearl Harbor,” published in the spring, argues that a Boeing 757 would have caused far more damage and left more wreckage strewn around the Pentagon.

“There are reasons why people doubt the official story,” he said. “There are photographs taken, and there is no Boeing in sight.”

Suspicions formed as the Pentagon still smoldered.

For 2 1/2 years, the attack on the Pentagon has been discussed and researched by members of Knight-Jadczyk’s online group, the Quantum Future School.

The group’s talks formed the basis for articles in which Knight-Jadczyk argues that after the attack on the World Trade Center, eyewitnesses at the Pentagon were predisposed to see a large airliner. She believes that the Pentagon was attacked by a smaller plane and that members of the Bush administration were somehow complicit because it was beneficial for war-profiteers and Israel.

Interviewed by telephone from what she said is a 17-bedroom castle outside Toulouse, where she lives with her Polish physicist husband and five children, Knight-Jadczyk acknowledged that her group is considered “fringe.”

Knight-Jadczyk, 52, a Florida native, has been a psychic and a channeler. She is now involved in experiments in what she calls “superluminal communication,” which she described as involving “time loops” that would enable people to communicate with their former selves.

Knight-Jadczyk said she never imagined anyone outside her group would ever view “Pentagon Strike.”

“The fact everybody’s been sending it to his brother and his cousin, almost frenetically, reflects the fact that there is a deep unease,” she said. “They don’t come out and say it. They don’t want to be accused of being with terrorists, anti-American or anti-patriotic. But they still feel something’s wrong.”

Bret Dean of Fort Worth said he considers it “baloney” to question whether a plane hit the Pentagon. But he also believes that the government ignored warning of the attacks.

After posting a link to the video on his libertarian site, www.freedomunderground.org, Dean recorded more than 8 million hits. At least one came from inside the Defense Department, he said.

“I don’t think the video is an instigator,” said Dean, 45, a former casino worker. “It’s a symptom. A lot of people don’t trust the government’s explanation because the government’s classified all the information.”

Asked if there were unreleased photographs of the attack that would convince the doubters, Zelikow, of the 9/11 commission, said, “No.”

“The question of whether American 77 hit the Pentagon is indisputable,” Zelikow said. “One reason you tend to doubt conspiracy theories when you’ve worked in government is because you know government is not nearly competent enough to carry off elaborate theories. It’s a banal explanation, but imagine how efficient it would need to be.”
