Today's King Cake Day. That fact actually occurred to me when I saw the date on today's Rude Pundit. Hard to say which was more depressing-- the realization or the posting. An excerpt:

For the will and energy needed to put this metropolitan area back together are too much for the state, too much for a Washington, DC too concerned with wars and corruption to look back to 2005's ravages. It's too much to ask for responsible environmental policy, and too much to ask for real attention to poverty, and too much to ask for an end to tax cuts so it can all be realistically funded, and too much to ask for a state that was started, in essence, by a pirate, Jean Lafitte, to give up its corrupt ways. It ain't gonna happen. The people here know it. It's a dulling, bludgeoning kind of knowledge, that they've been abandoned. And this crosses party lines for blame

Read the whole piece. I'm not ready to throw in the towel yet, but I'm all too inclined to agree with him. It sure doesn't feel like the first day of the Mardi Gras season.

Obviously some of what he says may be true.

It's a guaranteed outcome, though, if people give up.

Hang in there...
