Boo Dat

billyargh
... And then of course there are assholes like this who make me understand why not everybody felt great about the Buddy D dress parade. I assure you that Steve Kelley does not represent the Who Dats who proudly made themselves beautiful for Buddy on Sunday, and I'm disappointed in the Times-Picayune for printing this har-de-har-har oh-I-fear-for-my-manhood fratboy shit ... but then I'm also disappointed in them for making him their doesn't-get-New-Orleans editorial cartoonist, printing his know-nothing "human interest" articles, and slotting his dull, unfunny daily strip into our comics page. What did he do for you, Times-Pic, have all his teeth pulled or something?

But away with him. We will overcome the assholes and make it to the Promised Land.

Yeah!
I agree.

People will not get it, unless they are from 'down there'.

I hate to sound elitist, but it is what it is. :)

<3 to you, hon.

Re: Ain't Gwan Bother
tl;dr

Aging fratboy type wears a dress to the Buddy D parade because all his friends are doing it, but spends the whole article "cutely" reassuring himself that he's not gay or turning into one of them wimminz.

[ETA: Adding insult to injury, this trash was printed just below a nice retrospective piece on Buddy D.]

"He has delighted readers by consistently consigning office-holders to the one fate they fear most: that of not being taken seriously."

Backatcha, Kelley...

I think every city has a journalist like Steve Kelley: a pompous, arrogant, and just plain unfunny twit who still somehow manages to fall upward every time he gets fired for malfeasance. Almost invariably, these twerps fancy themselves "humor" columnists or cartoonists, and never mind that the only people who think they're remotely entertaining are their old college buddies, who keep them off welfare by hiring them to yet another built-to-flip publication. (Dallas has one particular case who's been fired from nearly every local publication we have, and he's now the executive editor at our local SMU journalism workfare program that masquerades as a local news magazine. I worked with him back in '95, back when he was throwing literal temper tantrums if freelancers got more fanmail than he did and the staff was writing fake letters to the editor to prevent more. I'm certain he keeps working because were he unemployed, four local coke dealers wouldn't be able to send their grandkids to Harvard any longer.)

I keep wondering how bad the TeePee can get, then I look at a copy of the Dallas Morning News and go, "oh, this bad..."

Last week the T-P misspelled the name "Manning." Yes, as in those Mannings. Anybody can have a typo, but COME ONNNNNN.

There was a time when such a misspelling would have had the perpetrator at the end of a rope off the CCC. I miss those days.
