Great coverage of the Ray Nagin indictment story on NOLA.com. So far there’s ten different articles by eight separate local reporters, with additional video and interactive content (not an AP story in sight). All available to read now. This is how you cover a breaking story in 2013.
Oh, yeah…and it’ll all be in the Early Sunday edition of The Times-Picayune that will be printed and delivered to stores on Saturday morning all over the Greater New Orleans area, in case you prefer to wait and read the coverage that way.

Creepy, Crusty, Crumbling: Illegal Tour of Abandoned Six Flags New Orleans [75 Pics].
I went to this Six Flags once, in 2000 (when it was still Jazzland). I had a fun time, but it surely wasn’t the greatest amusement park in the world. It’s haunting seeing these images, but I love seeing them.

A Sandwich a Day: Muffuletta from Central Grocery in New Orleans | Serious Eats.
The muffuletta is my favorite sandwich, by far. And for me the gold standard has always been Central Grocery. I’ve had countless muffulettas from other locations, but to me, the original has always been the best.
However, I have a new favorite muffuletta (as of two weeks ago). The one from Cochon Butcher is smaller (and cheaper), but it’s full of meat (which is homemade) and there’s a thin layer of olive salad on both sides of the bread.
I still love Central’s sandwich, but Butcher’s is slightly better in my book.

Browse Album :: Walt Disney World Trip – June 2010.
…that we were traveling to Lake Buena Vista, FL for a short vacation at Walt Disney World.
The above link are the pictures from the trip. I’m reliving the trip through the pictures, and I just wanted to share in case you wanted to as well.
Hopefully we’ll be able to take a trip to WDW later this year.

Disney on Twitter.
The Walt Disney Company has many, many Twitter accounts–pretty much one for every business unit. However, the @Disney account, which you would think would have been the first one used, posted its first Tweet on December 5, 2010 (Walt’s birthday). Since then, it’s been like a little gem Tweeting out some awesome stuff based on Walt’s and the company’s history.
The current design of the @Disney Twitter home page is EPCOT Center concept art and the avatar is the Disney D with the EPCOT logo behind it.
I applaud the genius behind this account. Keep up the great work!

Thanks to this post on the WordPress support forums, I just got the “Press This” button working again. This seems to be a problem with WordPress installs with HostGator as the host. I wanted to post it here in case anyone else is running into the same problem of trying to use the “Press This” button and it returns a ’404′ page.
Edit the text in the “Press This” link
