This one is almost too easy:
Three men were shot near the intersection of Chef Menteur Highway and Michoud Boulevard in eastern New Orleans early Friday morning around 3:10 a.m. Two of the men suffered multiple gunshot wounds to their bodies in the shooting. The third man was shot once in the hand. A bullet also grazed his head.
We can hear the critics.
"Well," they will say. "What are they doing out at that time of night anyway. Everyone knows nothing good happens after midnight."
"Bargains," we will say. "Bargains!"
"But the East," they will come back with. "The East is a wasteland."
We will then spend the rest of this gray afternoon lecturing them on their narrow interpretations of consumption, admonish them for being so closed minded about shopping.
Happy Saturday New Orleans.
