Throw Backs

We could ramble on about the recently released study finding New Orleans #1 in violent crime, but why bother?

Remember when burning people up was, like, the biggest thing to do down in the 9th?
1)The unidentified body of a man was found in a truck that had been set afire and left in a grassy area off Hayne Boulevard a few blocks west of the Industrial Canal.
2) Brass Knuckles?
A Gretna man accused of punching another man with brass knuckles during a disagreement has been booked with murder after the victim died Friday. Edwin May, 28, of 630 Third St., was booked with first-degree murder and armed robbery in connection with the death of Alan Fricker, 51, of Gretna
3)A woman has been booked with second-degree murder after authorities in St. Bernard Parish said she shot her boyfriend three times Monday morning as he slept.

And while the NO garners the coveted "Top Dog," spot for violent crime for a second straight year, our other natural resource is making waves in Washington. (No not jazz or fired catfish)

Desiree Rogers, a former New Orleans Zulu queen and daughter of a former city councilman, was named incoming White House social secretary on Monday by President-elect Barrack Obama

That's right, now we get to confirm a second truth on the national stage. NO knows how to party!
