    Um…wow. I’ll have a 34 oz. worm bucket, please. And a t-shirt.

    I really liked this; especially the Run t-shirt, and the Robobottom candidate sign. Ya’ll have probably seen the bumper-sticker “Trim the Shrub in ’09”; when I told my better-half about it, she thought it was about pubic hair…

    You and Scott should have done a team post called, “Signs of Fall”.

    My eyes in the “No Parking” photo were drawn to the “White” political sign. The juxtaposition – with “No Parking”, with the what-appears-to-be-black gentleman, with the decrepit neighborhood – is brills.

    Hey y’all — it has been such a busy month, back and forth to NO — I’m working on a new job, a TV show set there — that’s what’s been taking me to and fro. It’s such a great interesting city — a mix of old and new and slow and slower where not much works except an unending spirit — jesus this sounds cheesy — but what I’ve loved about the city is how much death is alive, and being in the morgue (where the NO PARKING/CORONER) sign was taken — was such a delight — and amazing that the muder capital of the world relies on a small office capable of only two autopsies at a time. The coroner is a trumpet-playing playboy of the south, worthy of a TV show himself. I’ve been reading TGW in spurts and it’s like y’all have been there with me, too.

    Hey, great photos. Never been in NO, but anyplace labeled the “Gumbo Capital of the World” must be worth a visit.
    The Spanish have an absolutely untranslatable word that ends up meaning something along the lines of: “A feeling of vigor provoked by the presence of death”. It is hard to describe in a way that doesn’t sound trite, but an awareness of death does allow one to live completely, and joyfully, in the present.
