Results

Before the "How could New Orleans do that?" commentaries and lamentations begin, it was not New Orleans technically that "re-elected" Rep. Jefferson:
Orleans Parish: (250 out of 392 precincts)
Jefferson-D.................13,204 votes
.................49%
Carter-D
......................13,769 votes.................51%
Percent-wise, Jefferson parish gave Rep. Jefferson the votes he needed:
Jefferson Parish: (100 out of 100 precincts)
Jefferson-D............11,934 votes............71%
Carter-D............Link.....4,967 votes............29%
Quibble, yes. Not as serious as levees/federal government v. hurricane/personal failure but worth noting.

The Times-Picayune has consistently run grim-faced pictures of the representative, even on the front page under the glorious "Jefferson Re-Elected" headline. Hm. Does this mean investigative reporting is in their future?

Not enough prunes and holy water in our diet I'm afraid.

Dambala: yeah, I know. I felt like being fanciful.

CH: I give information? Good information? Gosh. Who knew?
