So I got a speeding camera ticket in a city in which I do not live and rarely visit last summer. I'm obviously not paying the ticket as I have no risk of being booted in that city.
Well they eventually turn it over to a debt collector. They contact me via mail, I repsond with a validation of de...

| O-T Lounge|| Could Krewe du Vieux and All-Star weekend together be a problem? - Brightside Bengal on 2/12/14 at 2:12 pm|
Just realized that the big night for All-Star events downtown and around the quarter is Saturday night. Krewe du Vieux has drawn increasingly large crowds every year to where they are now almost a major parade.
The weather looks really good for Saturday which could make the crowds even larger.

There is a kind of generic ad on the mobile version of the OT to buy Mardi Gras (Ball) Tickets. I am actually interested in looking at these tickets, but the ad doesnt click through and has no website listed on the ad.
This is extremely poor advertising. What gives? ...

The weather channel was just blacked out in the last few days on Directv in a contract dispute over subscriber fees.
Directv doesn't seem to be worried one bit about losing the channel. TWC claims they are a life saving resource suring severe weather.
It seems like most people are fed up with...

Whether its BR, NOLA, or anywhere else, it seems like I read about an increasing number of carjackings.
The weird part is, it also seems like whenever there is a follow up on the story, the car is just found abandoned in a neighborhood. It's not necessarily stripped or wrecked, but just parked o...

Some ppl are talking about needing Carolina to lose now if we split.
This is false.
Carolina has 2 conference losses (vs SEA and AZ), we have 1. If we split with Carolina, we will have same overall record, same division record, but better conference record for the tiebreaker....

I am in my bank (regional nola based bank) training session for Dodd-Frank.

The dome was a tad bit on the weaker side for the Buffalo game, but I think with the Sunday night start, and the fact that everyone pretty universally hates dallas, it will be very very loud.
They should send that lame-o Guiness records guy to get a reading on this game. Won't have to artificial...
