“Ogden Park is a great neighborhood with lots of eclectic people that believe in art. Art is a great way for the community to get together as well as a way for us to become a more progressive city in general. So, come experience Ogden Park, the best eight blocks in Baton Rouge.” – Robin Neil, President of the Ogden Park Civic Association, in an interview with DIG. The Ogden Park Prowl takes place Saturday, September 27, featuring local art – such as the work of TJ Black (pictured) – music, and food, and celebrating one of Baton Rouge’s most unique communities.
“I’m blessed to have a husband that owns up to his mistakes, never gives up, always fighting for the good people of Louisiana.” – Kelly McAllister, wife of congressman Vance McAllister, in a television ad released Monday. McAllister, known as the “Kissing Congressman” after being caught on tape smooching a staffer, is running for reelection in Louisiana’s fifth district despite losing endorsements from just about everyone who helped get him elected – except for, of course, his forgiving bride.
“We need the flexibility in this testing phase to change things on gameday, especially if it can work better and function as our long-term solution…The changes are to improve our overall traffic flow, and what may be good for the whole might not work for everyone.” – Director of parking operations for LSU Athletics Adam Smith told The Advocate Sunday, amid growing complaints about the university’s new postgame traffic system. Smith probably has the crappiest job in the planet, so we’re sympathetic, but people like change about as much as they like sitting in hours of postgame traffic after a loss to Mississippi State.
“This badass is being replaced by an iPhone 6 (not the fat one). I got this one in 2010, and after four years, my only complaint is that apps are now designed for bigger screens, and the battery is getting tired. Never had a case for it, since it was most beautiful on its own. Great achievement in design. Great product. #apple #iPhone #tech.” – Joan Rivers. Sorta. This status was posted on the Facebook page for Rivers – who died earlier this month – as part of a prenegotiated deal with Apple that somehow got lost in the shuffle. Either that, or iOS8 is really, really powerful – like, communicating-with-other-realms powerful. Download with caution.
