Real Leadership

I

To be fair, the governor is correct when he says public colleges and universities are not getting the job done. However, it’s hardly fair to blame universities for a low graduation rate when so many K-12 public schools fail miserably at producing graduates who are ready for college. It’s also important to note that while Louisiana ranks high among states in the level of public support for higher education, tuitions at state colleges and universities rank among the lowest in the country. Passage of the GRAD Act last year, which Jindal supported (as did this newspaper), offers some long-term hope for offsetting cuts with modest tuition hikes, but current and foreseeable cuts far outpace imminent tuition and fee increases. So how can Jindal lead? He should start by leading a serious discussion of merging some public colleges

and universities and converting others to community colleges. This discussion should include factors for determining which institutions survive intact and which must change, such as nearness to population centers, historic enrollment and graduation rates and number of nationally recognized centers of excellence, to name a few. Jindal also should suggest where duplicative degree and graduate programs could be trimmed — and he should lead the fight for one board of higher education. This will bring a political backlash, but that’s what real leadership is all about: facing down one’s detractors and defending a position you know to be sound in the long run. Overall, Jindal should set Louisiana on a path toward higher education excellence by right-sizing the system and then funding it appropriately. This is not an easy path. Then again, real leadership requires more than just talking — or writing — about it.

f it weren’t so tragic, it would be comical: Gov. Bobby Jindal releases an autobiography immodestly titled Leadership and Crisis — just as he continues to show so little leadership amid Louisiana’s largest budget crisis ever. The fact that Jindal formerly held leadership positions in the two areas of state government that will see the deepest cuts next year — higher education and health care — makes the title of his book doubly ironic. The governor swears his book, which hit the shelves amid tomes by former President George W. Bush, former House Speaker Newt Gingrich, former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin and Texas Gov. Rick Perry, is not a precursor to a bid for national office. He says the same thing about his frequent fundraising trips outside Louisiana, many of which take him to states with early presidential caucuses and primaries. Are we the only ones who see a pattern here? Jindal says (or writes) one thing, but does quite another. It’s time to take some of your own medicine, Governor, and show some leadership. So far, Jindal’s prescription for higher education has been a combination of handing off the problem to others, blaming colleges and universities instead of addressing the problem head-on, and spreading the pain around rather than making targeted, surgical cuts. It’s time for some straight talk — and real leadership — from our governor on higher education. Let’s start the conversation by acknowledging what too many in state government want to avoid admitting: Louisiana has too many four-year public colleges and universities and too few resources to fund them all adequately. During times of high oil prices and engorged state coffers, we manage this problem by throwing more money at it. We no longer can avoid the obvious. Louisiana has fewer than 4.5 million people, yet we have 14 four-year public colleges and universities. By comparison, Florida has more than four times the population of Louisiana but only 11 four-year public universities. Census figures show that only 18.7 percent of Louisiana residents have college degrees (compared to a national average of 24.4 percent). Louisiana public colleges and universities have the lowest graduation rate in the South (37 percent), compared to a 52 percent average among southern states. Some of Louisiana’s public universities have produced centers of excellence, but overall, public higher education in Louisiana can charitably be described as mediocre. Jindal’s tack of ordering broad cuts — or diverting federal education funds from K-12 to higher ed, as he did last week — amounts to little more than spreading the mediocrity around.

DEAR ANNE, The street signs and sidewalk tiles should read Zimpel, because the street is named in honor of Charles F. Zimpel, a man who deserves to have a street named after him since his was, quite literally, a street life. Zimpel was a surveyor, engineer, cartographer and architect. He came to the Crescent City in the early 19th century as the surveyor and engineer for the New Orleans and Carrollton Railroad, which, over the years, evolved into the St. Charles Avenue streetcar line. Around 1831-32, Zimpel compiled surveys for the production of the “Topical Map of New Orleans and Its Vicinity.” The map Zimpel helped produce was the first survey of the town of Carrollton, which today is the extreme southwestern corner of Orleans Parish and includes the Riverbend area. He also designed four local buildings constructed in the 1830s: the Bank of New Orleans, Banks Arcade, Bishop’s City Hotel and the Orleans Cotton Press. By the end of that decade, however, Zimpel moved away from New Orleans but left behind an indelible mark. To be sure, his mark occasionally is misspelled, but even so, having a street named after you is better than, say, having a vanity license plate bearing your name. HEY BLAKE, DO YOU KNOW IF BLUEBERRY HILL EXISTS? IF SO, WHERE IS IT?

HARRY ROTH

OPEN ON MONDAY OF THANKSGIVING WEEK CALL TODAY TO BOOK YOUR APPOINTMENT

DEAR HARRY, Yes, Harry, there is a Blueberry Hill. It’s not the kind of hill you can climb by strapping on a new pair of Nikes, but as long as there is one scratchy old record

that spins under the weight of a phonograph needle, or if you have a dollar for a music download, there will always be a Blueberry Hill. Though there are blueberries in Louisiana — Mansfield has a Blueberry Festival each June — there are no significant hills in the area named after the popular berry. The song “Blueberry Hill” is a standard co-written in 1940 by Al Lewis and Larry Stock, with music by Vincent Rose. It was recorded a number of times by various

artists, the first Fats Domino perbeing Gene Autry forming in 1992. in 1941, before PHOTO BY ROLAND Fats Domino put GODEFROY, it on vinyl. In fact, CROPPED BY ERIK D omino him BAAS self recorded three versions of it, despite objections from musical director Dave Bartholomew, who said it had been done “a million times before.” Two versions recorded locally at Cosimo Matassa’s studio were lost when the audiotape was damaged. The version that everyone’s heard was recorded in Los Angeles, and in September 1956 reached No. 4 on Billboard’s chart. Though Domino had a few hits before “Blueberry Hill,” this tune guaranteed him a place in rock ’n’ roll history. Today there are lots of Blueberry Hills — an inn in Vermont, a Chuck Berry-owned restaurant in St. Louis, a family of eateries in Las Vegas, a community in Virginia — but they were not the inspiration for the song. Some reports say the song was named after a make-out spot in Taos, N.M., but Old Blake has not found definitive evidence of this. I posit that Blueberry Hill is a state of mind, as portrayed by Richie Cunningham, the star character in Happy Days, when he would quote the first line, “I found my thrill … on Blueberry Hill,” in reference to girls he liked.

QUOTES OF THE WEEK

“The oil is all gone.” — Former BP CEO Tony Hayward, speaking in London Nov. 10. He blamed “election-year politics” and “alarmist media reporting” for BP’s “public relations disaster” in the U.S.

People Movers

“We all understand we just don’t have a governor.” — Shreveport political analyst Elliott Stonecipher, speaking of Gov. Bobby Jindal’s frequent out-of-state travels to raise money for other GOP politicos. Stonecipher, a withering critic of Jindal, told the Baton Rouge Press Club he believes Jindal only sees the governor’s office as a steppingstone, saying, “He just wanted to skip over the good-governor part.”

TRANSPORT FOR NOLA PROMOTES MORE TRANSIT OPTIONS FOR NEW ORLEANS. BY ALE X WOODWARD

I

WHY NOT ACCESS PUBLIC RECORDS ELECTRONICALLY?

Fred Neal Jr., Jackie Dadakis and Jeffrey Schwartz are three of the organizers behind Transport for NOLA, which advocates for public transporation as “a public service and a public good.”

The Louisiana Joint House and Senate Governmental Affairs Committee will meet Wednesday, Nov. 17, at 9 a.m. in Baton Rouge to begin preparing a legislative study on the electronic delivery of public records requests. The meeting will be in House Committee Room 5. During the 2010 legislative session, Rep. Walt Leger, D-New Orleans, introduced HB 672 to provide for electronic delivery of public record requests. The bill failed to pass, but Leger convinced his colleagues to pass a related study resolution as a run-up to the 2011 session. “State and local agencies that are the custodians of public records often use the cost of producing hard copies of such records to discourage individuals, small news organizations and groups from requesting public records,” says David PAGE 15

and Bywater neighborhoods was ignored. “The problem is that they were never going to get the full funding for that Loyola-Rampart-St. Claude segment,” he says. “It’s kind of unfortunate that the one that got funded is the Loyola corridor, which has no dependent riders.” Schwartz founded Transport for NOLA in 2008 to promote and help improve mass transit in New Orleans with a holistic vision, from improved bike lanes to expanded bus service. With Transit Week, which kicks off Nov. 15 and runs through Nov. 20, Schwartz hopes to increase ridership and awareness through guerrilla marketing and online promotion. The week culminates in a two-hour mad dash scavenger hunt in the Warehouse

Gov. Bobby Jindal is at the middle of his term of office. How would you rate his performance?

THIS WEEK’S HEROES AND ZEROES

a string group comprising New Orleans Center for the Creative Arts (NOCCA) faculty along with members of the Louisiana Philharmonic Orchestra, will perform an eclectic concert at St. Louis Cathedral on Nov. 18 at 7:30 p.m. to benefit Coats for Kids. Jeremy Davenport will be a special musical guest. Admission is free with the donation of a clean winter coat, and NOCCA students will collect monetary donations.

Adam Linebarger

of Kenner was honored by Special Olympics Louisiana with one of the group’s Leaders of Tomorrow awards Nov. 5 in Baton Rouge. Louisiana First Lady Supriya Jindal was on hand as Linebarger received the Triumph Award. Linebarger survived spina bifida at birth and has since represented New Orleans Children’s Hospital at many events and personal appearances, sharing his story.

Glenn Vatshell,

owner of the catering firm Palate New Orleans, will once again be making Thanksgiving pies to benefit Food for Friends, the mealson-wheels outreach program of the NO/AIDS Task Force, which delivers more than 500 meals a week to people with HIV and AIDS. For each $15 pie ordered, Food For Friends will receive $10. To order a pie for pickup on Nov. 22 or 23, call NO/ AIDS at 821-2601.

Henry Heaton,

a Lakeview resident and outgoing assessor from the 7th District, hasn’t paid property taxes this year and owes the city more than $6,000, according to an investigation by WVUE-TV’s Lee Zurik. The city is owed nearly $152 million in property taxes and penalties. Heaton’s debt is particularly awkward because of his status as an assessor. He told Zurik he’s trying to raise the cash now.

n Februar y, the New Orleans Regional Transit Authority (RTA) announced it received a $45 million federal stimulus package grant — a grant that’ll completely fund a brand new streetcar line running from Canal Street to the Union Passenger Terminal, a 1.5-mile route along Loyola Avenue. But it won’t link with the St. Charles Avenue line just a few blocks away. The $45 million is paying only for the 1.5-mile route (roughly $8.5 million a foot), to be completed in 2012. The RTA wants to supplement the route with a 4-mile French Quarter route and a 2-mile stretch on Convention Center Boulevard. Those projects come with a $165 million price tag. RTA hopes to borrow $75 million and use a 30-year bond backed by an existing one-cent sales tax, which still leaves a $90 million hole to pay for mass transit in a corridor servicing tourist, not residential, ridership. What it won’t do is link nearby neighborhoods — a line that would extend down Rampart Street and St. Claude Avenue to the Bywater — to the Quarter. “Who’s actually going to ride the streetcar from the Union Passenger Terminal to Canal Street? There’s almost no one,” says Jeffrey Schwartz, who founded the transit advocacy group Transport for NOLA, which hosts Transit Week this week to promote mass transit in New Orleans. “The Quarter, Treme, Bywater, St. Roch (and) Marigny are primed for transit.” Schwartz helped draw up that RTA funding request for the streetcar line, but a proposal to extend that Loyola line to the primarily residential Treme, Marigny

them to other neighborhoods, including Algiers. “Make sure you have a bike rack on there,” Palmer added. AFTER HuRRICANE KATRINA AND THE levee failures destroyed 200 of the RTA’s 370 buses, the city was left with only a handful, some donated from Illinois and not up to par with the pre-Katrina fleet. Ridership plummeted. Temporary solutions like the Lil’ Easy lines were only that: temporary. But the RTA says ridership is increasing: Last year the transit authority’s ridership numbers reached more than one-third of its pre-Katrina level, and the numbers continue to grow. Ridership is up 20 percent from 2009, according to Stefan Marks, director of planning and scheduling, but he says the real challenge now is keeping up with the demand. Marks also says the RTA is focusing on improving transit in high demand areas, including Broad Street and Magazine Street. Schwartz says the latest plans for the streetcar lines support the touristheavy French Quarter and aren’t feeding the neighborhoods that depend on mass transit. “Why wouldn’t you want people to take a streetcar to a Saints game?” Schwartz says. “You’re going to have streetcars in the street at Loyola (Avenue) stuck in the same car traffic instead of having a line page 13

District starting at the American Institute of Architects (1000 St. Charles Ave.) on Saturday, Nov. 20. “We’re trying to get people to commit to taking transit as much as they can for a week,” he says. “The goal is for people to familiarize themselves with transit and have it not be such a foreign thing,” whether that’s jumping on a streetcar or finding the nearest bus schedule — or at least knowing where the nearest stop is. While Transport for NOLA’s long-term goal is to help increase access to transportation across social and economic spectrums, Schwartz says, “There seems to be a lack of recognition on behalf of city leaders and a lot of the nonprofits working in areas that would benefit from affordable transit, like affordable housing (activists), things like that. There’s not a vision for transit.” Perhaps that vision may be coming into focus. Last week during the New Orleans City Council’s budget hearings, RTA manager Justin Augustine addressed the organization’s budget needs and plans — but Council members also voiced what they’d like to see: more mass transit options for the entire city. District C Councilwoman Kristin Gisleson Palmer said bus lines need to close loops to incorporate more riders, and Council Vice President Jackie Clarkson said she’d like to see more of the Lil’ Easy Line (a minibus service which was discontinued in Lakeview and Gentilly but continues in the 9th Ward). Council President Arnie Fielkow also weighed in: “We’ve just got to dream a little bit bigger.” Augustine said the RTA plans to expand bus service in Mid-City and also intends to buy more articulated buses — the large “bendy” buses now running on Broad Street that can carry 62 seated and 40 standing passengers — and introduce

“Clancy's Commentary” to Debut on WWL—TV ambit political editor and columnist Clancy DuBos, a longtime political analyst for WWL-TV, will begin a regular commentary segment for the station’s Eyewitness News this week. “Clancy’s Commentary” will run each Tuesday during WWL-TV’s 6 p.m. news. Longtime New Orleanians will remember the station’s commentaries delivered for 37 years by former WWL news director Phil Johnson, who retired in 1999 and passed away earlier this year. “I’m not going to be able to fill his shoes, but I will certainly try to follow in his footsteps,” DuBos says. “He tried to give people additional information and insight in his editorials, and that’s what I hope I can do in my commentaries.” “Through his appearances on WWL-TV and his writings in Gambit, Clancy has shown time and time again that he can cut through to the core of issues and explain how and why they are important,” says WWL news director Chris Slaughter. “We are excited that Clancy will offer his unique and insightful perspective on a regular, weekly basis. Viewers expect in-depth presentations of important issues, and we think this is another example of WWL’s commitment to that.” “Clancy’s Commentary” will also be posted at Gambit’s website (www.bestofneworleans.com) every Wednesday morning.

grew to cover hundreds of miles in New Orleans with more than a dozen different lines through dozens of neighborhoods. Those tracks were later removed with the introduction of buses and cars, leaving the Carrollton, St. Charles and Canal Street lines covering only a dozen or so miles. When it launched in 2008, Transport for NOLA introduced a bold proposal: light rail. Schwartz and his group of self-described “transit geeks” drew up a map depicting the familiar colored squiggles and boldface fonts of a subway map — the proposed “NOLA Overground” stops at each historic neighborhood and then some, with service extending from Tulane Avenue to the airport, Chalmette to the Northshore and everywhere in between. “A lot of thought (was) put into what lines to show and where they went, even as far down as identifying the names of the stops and how that identifies the culture and history of a particular neighborhood,” Schwartz says. But he acknowledges the city might not be ready just yet. “That map and the push to do Transport for NOLA was meant as a conversation starter: ‘What do you want to see in transit in the city?’ Light rail is sexier than buses, so we thought (this was) the best way to start,” he says. “The name is a play on Transport for London, with the idea of transit being a service like a utility that everyone has a right to.” Visit www.transportfornola.org for more information about Transit Week events.

of streetcars moving freely in the neutral ground as a way for people to get out of a Saints game.” There has been some progress, he says, thanks to the city’s hiring of Veolia Transportation, the private company that’s been managing RTA since 2008. He says Transport for NOLA is able to communicate with RTA members and discuss transit and policy ideas. There also is room for small improvements, he says, including wheelchair accessibility for some streetcars and making rides faster and more efficient by giving streetcars the right-of-way in traffic rather than making them stop. “The city can have these things,” he says. “Parts of New Orleans are as dense or more dense than Boston or San Francisco. If you look at the corridors, the neighborhoods, they’re totally supportive of transit. The trick is, how do you get the politicians … to start talking about it?” That trick, Schwartz says, begins with treating streetcars like transit options, not just tourist destinations. The St. Charles Avenue streetcar line is “one of the proverbial ‘streetcar suburbs,’” Schwartz says. “Most of New Orleans is ideal in its density, walkability and vibrancy, like lots of the great American and European cities. But it’s operated as a ‘heritage’ route, as opposed to an actual transit route. … Eventually, the RTA made decisions like a lot of cities, where streetcars were taken out and buses put in, but that’s what everybody was doing at the time.” Starting in the 1800s, streetcar services

Coral Dies in oil’s Wake

JinDal on Your kinDle

Gov. Bobby Jindal’s memoir, Leadership and Crisis, will be released Nov. 15, but The Washington Post’s Stephen Lowman got an early copy of the book, which originally was

HOME DÉCOR 3717 VETERANS BLVD · METAIRIE · 888-4141

N E X T TO BARN E S & NOBLE OPEN MONDAY - SATURDAY

set to be released in July under the title Real Hope, Real Change: New Conservative Solutions to Rescue America. The title wasn’t the only change. The original cover (which may or may not have been finalized) featured a large American flag with a small inset photo of the guv, along with a co-byline by ghostwriter Peter Schweizer, who has written books about the Reagan and Bush presidential families. Schweizer’s name (and the flag) are absent from the cover of Leadership and Crisis, which features a photo of Jindal striding in a sport jacket and khakis, flanked by a Louisiana state policeman and a member of the National Guard. It also features a front-cover blurb by Mississippi Gov. Haley Barbour (“Anyone who thinks that the Republican Party doesn’t have new and innovative ideas has never met Bobby Jindal”). According to Lowman, the book includes the expected swipes at President Barack Obama and his administration for their handling of the BP oil disaster as well as a chapter titled “Do We Really Want to Be Like Europe?”. (Answer: no.) Of particular interest to Louisiana political watchers will be a section called “Men Behaving Badly,” which limns wayward politicos of both parties, including John Ensign, Mark Sanford, Larry Craig, John Edwards and Bill Clinton — though one obvious addition to the list, Sen. David Vitter, seems to have slipped Jindal’s mind. Another omission from that list: former Speaker of the House and Republican resurgent Newt Gingrich, who provided a nice back-cover blurb for Jindal, calling him “one of the most talented, reformminded governors in the nation.” Other back-cover backscratchers include Florida Gov. Jeb Bush and Democratic strategist James Carville, but one blurber comes out of left field (or perhaps the backfield): New Orleans Saints coach Sean Payton, who says, “If you are looking for a take-charge guy, a leader who understands the need for quick, strong and decisive action, look no further than Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal.” — Kevin Allman

Former President George W. Bush also has a new book — Decision Points — and he made several TV appearances this week to promote it, including sit-downs with Fox News, Oprah Winfrey and NBC’s Matt Lauer. One confession in the book piqued the attention of both interviewers and critics, and that was his objection to Kanye West’s criticism of his performance in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina (“George Bush doesn’t care about black people”). In the book, Bush writes: “I faced a lot of criticism as president. ... But the suggestion that I was a racist, because of the response to Katrina, represented an all-time low. I told Laura at the time that it was the worst moment of my presidency. I feel the same way today.” “You’re not saying the worst moment in your presidency was watching the misery in Louisiana. You’re saying it was when someone insulted you because of that,” Lauer pointed out. The former president, still clearly peeved, told Lauer: “I also make it clear that the misery in Louisiana affected me deeply as well.” Lauer spoke to West the day after the Bush interview ran, and West apologized to the president, saying, “I didn’t have the grounds to call him a racist. I believe that in a situation of high emotion like that, we as human beings don’t always choose the right words.” Bush, informed of West’s comments, said he forgave the rapper and appreciated the apology. But within hours, West took to Twitter to complain about Lauer’s interview, calling it “very brutal” and saying, “He tried to force my answers. … I feel very alone very used very tortured very forced very misunderstood very hollow very very misused.” He later canceled a planned Today show concert. — Allman

A National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) research cruise completed a deep sea study earlier this month, and scientists on board found significant damage to coral systems 7 miles from the site of the Deepwater Horizon rig that exploded in April. The Ronald H. Brown’s remote-operated vehicles (ROV) discovered a dead and dying coral system 4,600 feet deep and covered in a “brown substance.” NOAA estimates 90 percent of the 40 corals were affected, and another coral site 1,400 feet from that coral was in similar shape. “These observations capture our concern for impacts to marine life in places in the Gulf that are not easily seen,” NOAA administrator Jane Lubchenco said in a statement. “Continued, ongoing research and monitoring involving academic and government scientists are essential for comprehensive understanding of impacts to the Gulf.” In May, Environmental Defense Fund chief oceans scientist Doug Rader warned Gambit that an oil-dispersant mix potentially could devastate the deep sea’s thousands-years-old coral systems — home to diverse ecosystems — if the oil-dispersant mix infiltrated the water columns. NOAA officials and scientists collected samples to determine if the oil and dispersant caused the coral deaths. Last week, 202 days after the BP oil disaster began, responders completed the plugging and “abandoning” of the now-capped well. Federal on-scene coordinator Adm. Paul Zukunft says 12 vessels are still at the site and waiting to be brought to shore for decontamination. The cap is marked with an 11-point star to honor the 11 lives lost on the rig. — Alex Woodward

Following Through ne of the most telling comments by a victorious Republican on Nov. 2 was that of Floridaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s new U.S. Senator, Marco Rubio, who came out of nowhere to upend the GOPâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s establishment candidate, Gov. Charlie Crist. Rubio is one of the Tea Partyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s more attractive faces, but he also understands better than most the Tea Partyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s true impact on politics â&#x20AC;&#x201D; and the Republican Party. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We make a grave mistake if we believe that tonight these results are somehow an embrace of the Republican Party,â&#x20AC;? Rubio said near the outset of his victory speech. â&#x20AC;&#x153;What they are is a second chance â&#x20AC;&#x201D; a second chance for Republicans to be what they said they were going to be not so long ago.â&#x20AC;? Rubioâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s comment was cited a week later in New Orleans at the second annual summit of the Bipartisan Policy Center (BPC) at Tulane University. Republican pollster Whit Ayres, who conducted the first post-midterm voter survey with Democratic pollster Stan Greenberg for the BPC, described Rubio as â&#x20AC;&#x153;a rising star with a foot in both campsâ&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x201D; meaning both the Tea Party and the Republican

o

Party. The context of Ayresâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; comment was that the GOP should not misinterpret the results of Nov. 2, particularly when it comes to plotting its strategy after the new Congress takes office. Greenberg agrees. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s remarkable how low the esteem is of both parties,â&#x20AC;? he said. I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t mean to throw cold water on the GOPâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s victory, which will stand as one of the greatest comebacks in modern American politics. But it will count for nothing if those results are misinterpreted and the opportunity to lead â&#x20AC;&#x201D; via compromise â&#x20AC;&#x201D; is squandered. The survey by Ayres and Greenberg showed that Independents, not a bigger than normal GOP turnout, drove the Republican victory on Nov. 2. Those same Independents voted overwhelmingly for Democrats in 2006. The survey included interviews with 1,000 voters nationwide on Nov. 2-3. Its margin of error was plus-or-minus 3.1 percent. So what happens now? Does the Tea Party stay together? Do its followers shut down government, as Republicans

did in 1994 (with disastrous results for the GOP)? If they compromise, where do they bend? â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Tea Party is not a party, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a state of mind,â&#x20AC;? noted Kate Zernike, a New York Times reporter whose book, Boiling Mad, offered the first independent insights into the Tea Party phenomenon. Republican pollster Ayres agrees: â&#x20AC;&#x153;Independents say they want things to get done.â&#x20AC;? Thus, the GOP â&#x20AC;&#x201D; with or without Tea Party support â&#x20AC;&#x201D; runs a great risk in just saying â&#x20AC;&#x153;noâ&#x20AC;? for the next two years.

Independents believe both parties should move more toward the center.

Republican leaders, who gathered to plot their return to power even before Barack Obama took his oath of office in 2009, need to convene once again to figure out how their party will show that it is ready to govern â&#x20AC;&#x201D; and to work with Democrats to get things done. It wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be easy. Both Ayres and Greenberg noted the survey found GOP voters less willing to compromise. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Republicans are more adamant than Democrats that their party should stick to their core principles,â&#x20AC;? Ayres noted. By a margin of 64 to 32 percent, Republican voters say that to win in the future â&#x20AC;&#x153;the Republican Party needs to be more supportive of its core principles.â&#x20AC;? Democratic voters say their party should stick to its core principles by 50 percent to 44 percent, indicating less intractability. Most important, Independents believe both parties should move more toward the center. The GOP has every right to savor its victory, but starting in January, the people who gave it that victory will be watching to see if anybody in power was paying attention to Rubio on the night of Nov. 2.

Pet Project anine Connection (4920 Tchoupitoulas St., 218-4098; www.canineconnectionnola.com) is a daycare and boarding center for dogs and the realization of a longtime dream for owner Deedra Wing. “I always wanted to open my own business,” Wing says. “But it never seemed like the right time.” Like many who lived in New Orleans in 2005, Wing left town for Hurricane Katrina. During her absence, she was haunted by stories of pet owners desperate to reconnect with furry family members they left behind. An owner of four dogs, Wing felt inspired to create the company she’d always dreamed of founding. In 2006, Canine Connection was born. Canine Connection boasts 24-hour pet supervision, several outdoor play areas, private suites and a doggy swimming pool. Owners can check on their pets at any time using the company’s website, which features webcam monitoring of individual rooms as well as group areas. The brightly painted front office is adorned with colorful pop art portraits of pups, and the din of barking rarely ceases for long. On any given day, the operation hosts between 70 and 120 pets. The front of the facility houses Canine Culture, the company’s dog-centric retail store, where owners can find all kinds of treats for their pets. The company regularly sponsors events to benefit groups like the Louisiana SPCA, including this year’s BARKtoberfest. Wing’s favorite part of operating the center is greeting “all of the tail-wagging dogs (that) enter our doors on a daily basis.” She believes all pups have unique personalities and she looks forward to getting to know them. To Wing and her employees, this means, quite literally, “making the canine connection.”

When Horn did open his mouth, he provided plenty of memorable material. Always candid, there seemed to be no question he would not answer, even if he was at a loss for words. Inevitably, the occasional malapropism ensued. My favorite was when he was describing the way an opposing defense would pressure quarterback Aaron Brooks, saying they would “try to dismangle Aaron, as they would call it.” I loved that he not only invented a new word, but that he added a disclaimer on the end, as if to escape culpability. No player was so active to engage a media member as former Saints defensive tackle Hollis Thomas, who mercilessly teased reporters about their choice of clothing. Thomas would survey the locker room, generally wearing nothing more than a towel, and lob insults at any visitors unfortunate enough to enter his field of vision. The orange gingham shirt I wore one day made me an obvious target. “What is that, a tablecloth?” Thomas asked. “Are you going on a picnic?” Former Saints defensive end Charles Grant was often at his boastful best when the camera lights came on. Grant would guarantee victory with such frequency, it became less of a guarantee and more of a speech pattern. One year during training camp, Grant predicted that the Saints defense would be “a wrecking crew. We’ll be like the Dome Patrol (the famed Saints linebackers of the late 1980s and early 1990s).” When asked which member of the Dome Patrol was his favorite, Grant paused, obviously stumped, but that didn’t diminish his bluster. “Man, all them guys,” he responded. Former Saints running back Ricky Williams’ peculiar relationship with the media was well-documented. He had the exhausting habit of answering questions with a one-word query of his own. Ricky, are you encouraged by your performance? “Encouraged?” he would respond. Williams was the only athlete I’ve ever heard complain about the small light affixed to the top of most broadcast cameras. “Can you turn that off? It’s right in my eyes,” he told my cameraman. It’s so the people at home can see you, Ricky. MANY OF THE MOST COMPELLING AND HUMOROUS RESPONSES are relayed when the cameras aren’t rolling. Former Saints coach Jim Haslett was well-known for regaling reporters with stories after he stepped down from the podium in what we referred to as his “second press conference.” One day a few of us were chatting with Haslett and someone brought up musician Rick James, who had died recently. In one of the most incongruous tales I’ve ever heard, Haslett proceeded to tell us that he used to live next to James in Buffalo, N.Y., when Haslett was a linebacker with the Buffalo Bills. Haslett said James threw

wild parties during which he’d leave his front door wide open in the middle of western New York’s notoriously snowy winters. Super Freak indeed. In 2000, Haslett took his first NFL head coaching job — with the Saints. Apparently there was an initial get-to-know-you period with the players, because during training camp, former (and now-deceased) defensive tackle Norman Hand referred to his head coach as Coach Hazelett — as in “Coach Haze-lett is doing a great job. You got players flying around, coaches flying around, you can’t help but fly around yourself.” Whenever I think of that line, I can’t help but wonder if he was describing football or Quidditch. Working in the sports media means sometimes doing so alongside former players who have transitioned to a second career as broadcasters. One explayer was working as an occasional analyst on a weekly Saints highlight show I co-hosted. Part of the set backdrop was a bar with bottles of real alcohol. One night after the show, I saw the analyst heading for the door with a bottle of Crown Royal under his arm, presumably considering it to be a parting gift, until I told him he was making off with a part of the set and the booze would have to stay. For obvious reasons, the 2006 home opener against the Atlanta Falcons was an unforgettable

night. It was the only time I’ve ever seen tears shed in the press box. But what I’ll also remember was the scene on the sideline prior to the game. We were broadcasting live from the Louisiana Superdome floor as a parade of rock stars, actors and clergy walked past. Former New Orleans Hornets star Baron Davis wandered by while we were on the air and we conducted an impromptu interview. During a commercial break, a woman claiming to be a representative for rapper Lil Jon (not that I doubted this assertion; who would claim to be this if she wasn’t?) asked me if we would be interested in having Mr. Jon make an appearance. In spite of his diamond-encrusted smile and famous exuberance for life, we declined. Endymion was still months away, but that night it felt every bit like Carnival inside the Dome. I WILL ALWAYS REMEMBER SAINTS FANS FOR THEIR WICKED SENSE of humor and their pursuit of the unvarnished truth. Under NFL protocols of old, reporters were allowed to leave the press box and access the field within the last two minutes of the game. At game’s end, after the players headed off the field into the locker room, media members would follow them to conduct post-game interviews. After one Saints loss, there was little more than a murmur inside the Superdome. As I was walking into the tunnel, I heard a piercing voice call out, “Hey, Adam, ask Aaron Brooks why he’s smiling about all those completions … to the other team!” I looked up to see a scowling woman no younger than 65 years old, fleur de lis earrings swaying as she shook her head in dismay. Regrets? I have a few. I regret I was never able to use my nickname for former Saints tight end David Sloan. Sloan was a hulking man who resembled a bodybuilder. He arrived in New Orleans after

some productive seasons, including a Pro Bowl appearance, with the Detroit Lions. When I noticed his hometown was Tollhouse, Calif., I thought the “Cookie Monster” was the perfect sobriquet for Sloan. Unfortunately, Sloan, plagued by injuries, spent one unproductive season with the Saints and was waived, never providing me with the opportunity to unveil the “Cookie Monster” nickname. I also regret never following through on an idea involving Saints third-string quarterback Tyler Palko hatched during one steamy training camp practice (there was really no other kind) in Jackson, Miss. One of the few ways to keep your mind off the suffocating heat in training camp is to devise obscure story ideas about the third-string guard and the off-the-field hobbies of the backup deep snapper. Palko’s jerky left-handed passing motion seemed strangely familiar, and it dawned on me it bore a striking resemblance to the release of White Goodman, Ben Stiller’s muscle-bound antagonist in the movie DodgeBall: A True Underdog Story. My training camp-inspired stroke of genius was to show simultaneous slow-motion video clips of the two men in action during the evening newscast to illustrate the similarities. Why? In my sunstroked mind, it seemed like a vaguely amusing way to break up the monotony of camp. In retrospect, maybe it was best that bright idea remained confined to my own imagination. I do not regret, however, that I did not forsake personal comfort back at the office. On most of the summer weekends, I sat behind the anchor desk delivering a sportscast in my uniform of coat and tie. The truth is, I was also wearing shorts.

2009 festival. In addition to the official shows, there are another 30 at “Bring Your Own Venue” (BYOV) sites, which range from the mini-fringe cluster of puppet shows at the Mudlark Public Theater to Southern Rep to a roving truck that will park and open up the back to reveal a performance space. A panel of a dozen local artists reviewed applications and looked for both quality and “fringiness,” some boundary-pushing or category-blurring element that makes work different from traditional theater. The result is a mix of shows incorporating comedy, circus skills, freak stunts, aerialists, music, dance, performance art, spoken word, social advocacy and more. Some shows are more familiar in form but broach taboo subjects. The New Orleans Fringe has a parade and activities for children. The Goodchildren Social Aid & Pleasure Club parade (2 p.m. Saturday) is a bohemian assembly of Carnival marching clubs, pirate groups and others. From 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday and Sunday, there are arts and crafts and performance activities for kids at the Fringe Tent. Many shows feature mature material, but a few are kid-friendly, including environmentalist/circus/monster show Revenge From the Deep Water, European bicycle clown show Duo Roccoco and All Aboard. Other performances range from the Southernfried Chinese poetry adaptation Du Fu, Mississippi, questionable accounts by New York writers and comedians in The Liar Show, the exploration of the other side of Faust’s bargain in The Tale of Mephisto and the New Orleans-set rock opera The Lead Paint Libretto. See page 35 for selected show previews.

n just its third year, the New Orleans Fringe has a reputation among its alternative theater festival peers. “We’re the fringiest,” says founder and organizer Kristen Evans. That’s both an odd and fitting superlative for the diverse array of shows under the fringe concept’s big tent. The New Orleans Fringe includes 60 shows at venues all over town from Wednesday through Sunday, and there are parties, a parade and other events as well. There’s everything from clowning to performance art, comedy to dance, kids activities to mature subject material. Evans attributes the buzz to a handful of things, like the New Orleans’ festival’s indulgence of nontraditional venues, including a deconsecrated church, converted warehouse spaces and the Den of Muses. Other distinct elements of the local fringe include its Bywater neighborhood character — several official venues are within blocks of the Fringe Tent (corner of Press and Dauphine streets) headquarters and box office. The festival operates on a shoestring budget, relying on volunteer staff and donated materials. But there also are free drinks at some events. “You don’t have that in other places,” Evans says. “The currency isn’t always money. Sometimes it’s good will. Word has gotten out that the New Orleans Fringe is really fun.” It’s certainly not $8 ticket prices that draw performers from as far away as Ireland, Switzerland and Italy. But a large increase in applications for festival slots suggests many individual and group performers want to make the trip. A total of 160 applications were filed for 30 official slots, up from 108 for the

FRINGE FEST

BE THERE DO THAT

New Orleans Fringe Highlights Below are previews of some of the 60 Fringe shows, including 30 jury selected shows and 30 alternative venue shows. Visit www.nofringe.org for a complete schedule.

BURYING BARBIE

7 p.m. Wednesday-Thursday, 7 p.m. and 11 p.m. FridaySaturday, 3 p.m. Sunday The Elm Theatre, 220 Julia St. In this dark and comic treatise on normal and abnormal childhood behavior and a societal icon, 7-year-old Rachel (Becca Chapman) fantasizes about a myriad of ways to kill her dolls. The show is not for children.

DU FU, MISSISSIPPI

7 p.m. Wednesday, 9 p.m. Saturday, 7 p.m. Sunday Party World, 3621 St. Claude Ave. A group of neighbors in a small town in Mississippi chew the fat and share some wisdom and a few songs. The text is taken from translations of work by the 8th century Chinese poet Du Fu, who wrote about the beauty and hardships of life, raising children, drinking, floods, poverty and war. The show was created by Brendan Connelly and ArtSpot Productions member Lisa D’Amour.

DUO ROCCOCO

9 p.m. Thursday, 11 p.m. Saturday-Sunday NOLA Candle Factory, 4537 N. Robertson St. Brazilian-born former New Orleanian and current resident of Switzerland, Jessica Arpin is an accomplished circus arts and theater performer who has performed in streets and theaters around the world. Here she works with Italian magician Luca Regina in a bicycle clown act that’s fun for all ages.

faint of heart. It’s a mix of S&M chic and old school geek stunts with knives, nails, whips, broken glass, open flame, sword swallowing, chainsaws and more.

THE LEAD PAINT LIBRETTO

9 p.m. Thursday, 11 p.m. Saturday, 5 p.m. Sunday Den of Muses, Architect Street at Port Street Sort of a mix between Hedwig and the Angry Inch and The China Syndrome, The Lead Paint Libretto is a rock opera centered on the tragedy of lead poisoning, a scourge dating back to the Roman Empire. Giovanni is a New Orleans handyman who takes pride in scraping old paint off homes before painting anew, but perhaps his industriousness is sowing the seeds of decline. The creation of puppeteer Nina C. Nichols and Case Miller, the show combines a rock score, Tyvek suit-clad dancers, power tools, puppets, absurdist melodrama and environmental consciousness.

THE LIAR SHOW

9 p.m. Thursday, 7 p.m. Friday, 7 p.m. Saturday Skull Club, 1003 N. Spain St. The TV show Naked City told viewers there are 8 million stories in the city, and The Liar Show creators know that some of them are totally fabricated. A group of 25 New York news media and entertainment writers participate in this changing show, in which several performers tell fabulously strange but true stories and one offers up a fiction. Audience members then interrogate the storytellers for more information in an effort to identify the false one. Each show at the Fringe will feature different stories. The performers include organizer Andy Christie, Faye Lane, Martin Dockery, Leslie Goshko and Ophira Eisenberg.

7 p.m. Thursday, 9 p.m. Saturday, 7 p.m. Sunday AllWays Lounge, 2240 St. Claude Ave. Standup comedy may not seem Fringy, but Shabana Rehman’s career has been anything but typical. A native of Pakistan, she moved to Norway with her family as a child and started performing in Oslo in 1999. She has found a way to joke about death threats, which she has received, and aspects of fundamentalist Islamic cultures that are oppressive to women. If there’s ever a Nobel Prize for caustic jokes about child brides, she’ll probably win it.

HUNTERS BLIND

9 p.m. Wednesday, 11 p.m. Thursday, 7 p.m. Friday, 5 p.m. and 7 p.m. Saturday, 3 p.m. and 11 p.m. Sunday Mudlark Public Theatre, 1200 Port St. Little Red Riding Hood meets legendary French knight (who fought alongside Joan of Arc) and notorious child murderer Gilles De Rais in this rod puppet show. When children start to disappear from her village, young Netta sets out into the forest to confront the menace. Pandora Gastelum and Amanda Stone wrote the story and original score for the dark fairy tale, featuring 17 large bunraku-style rod puppets and shadow puppetry.

I INVENTED SIDE SHOW

Du Fu, Mississippi finds common ground between 8th century Chinese poetry and rural Mississippi neighbors.

ORDER OF THE WOLF

7 p.m. Wednesday, 9 p.m. Thursday, 11 p.m. Friday, 3 p.m. and 9 p.m. Saturday, 1 p.m. and 9 p.m. Sunday Mudlark Public Theatre, 1200 Port St. Portland, Ore.’s Night Shade presents shadow puppet shows on large screens, and the use of multiple handheld lights allows them to create illusions of depth and complex movement. The group has even teamed with punk rockers Japanther in concerts using screens to create what look like shadow puppet music videos. Order of the Wolf is a dark mythical tale of obsession, the occult and a boy’s quest to save his father’s soul.

REVENGE FROM THE DEEP WATER

7 p.m. Wednesday and Friday, 11 p.m. Sunday Den of Muses, Architect Street at Port Street This mash-up of theater, aerialists and circus arts recasts the Godzilla tale on the bayou. A hurricane damages a coastal town, destroys its oil refinery and washes a massive egg onshore. A reporter and photographer investigate as a monster is wakened from the deep and the city tries to figure out what course to take while rebuilding. The show is kid-friendly.

THE TALE OF MEPHISTO

7 p.m. Wednesday and Saturday, 11 p.m. Sunday Trinity Church, 725 St. Ferdinand St. While directing The Tragical History of Doctor Faustus in Los Angeles in 2008, Tulane University theater professor Antony Sandoval became intrigued by the character of Mephistopheles and what he did when he wasn’t pursuing Faust’s soul. The devil incarnate is often depicted as an angry old man seeking others’ ruin, but Sandoval wanted to explore the character as more of a seducer or charmer, seen less in Christian overtones — and maybe not even a man? The Tale of Mephisto is a one-woman show performed by Natsumi Sugiyama, exploring her nature as more than the other half of Faust’s bargain. The performance incorporates masks, puppets, dance and elements of comedy and satire.

THE TRAIL OF TEARS

9 p.m. Wednesday, 7 p.m. Friday, 5 p.m. Saturday Trinity Church, 725 St. Ferdinand St. Alabama’s Bearinglight Butoh Dance Theatre tells the story of the U.S. government’s forced migration of Native Americans from Southern states to Oklahoma in the 1830s. Butoh is a modern Japanese dance form typically featuring performers in ghostly white body paint and slow and contorted movement. Deborah Mauldin, a past president of the American Dance Guild, and Ashley Muth use Botoh, mime and improvisation to explore the suffering and rebirth of Native American culture.

That’s weird voices at night. One day Christian what working with an editor will do, came to me with that riff. The song’s kind says singer/guitarist Alex Maas, who enlisted producer David Sardy (Rolling Stones, Oasis, Spoon, et. al.) to extract the pith from the Austin, Texas, band’s n e v e r- e n d i n g , p a t h o l o g i c al l y spiraling psych/ rock nightmares. “ I t ’s r e al l y strange — we’ve never worked with a producer b e fore,” Maas says. “Dave was of written from both the perreally cool.

Christmas came early this year for fans of Sam Beam, in the form of a 36-second peek under the wrapping of Kiss Each Other Clean (Warner Bros.), his forthcoming fourth full-length release as Iron & Wine. Due in January, the album, judging from its short, soaring trailer, is set to further the expansion that started with 2005â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s In the Reins, an eclectic collaboration with Arizonan desert-rockers Calexico, and cemented on 2007â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s The Shepherdâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Dog, which sent rippled, concentric circles of sound â&#x20AC;&#x201D; wafting Hammond organs, bluesy campfire stomps, hiccupping handclapping and backward guitar silhouettes â&#x20AC;&#x201D; around the former film professorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s surreptitiously cinematic finger-picked acoustics and Pink Moon-walking vocal prayers. Opening is NOMO, a partystarting University of Michigan-born nonet led by multi-instrumentalist Elliot Bergman and, neck-and-neck with Antibalas Afrobeat Orchestra, a contender for the best horn-swinging, conga-slapping ensemble currently blowing north of the Tropic of Cancer.

INSIDE JOB (PG-13) — Charles

Ferguson’s documentary fol-

Deja Vu

In Today, director Naftali Beane Rutter shows a real talent for getting his camera in very intimate spaces, somehow going unnoticed at a breakfast table inside a FEMA trailer shared by a family of six. For a single day, Rutter followed three families affected by Hurricane Katrina and wove together their cinema verite profiles into a film that is quite gripping, even if the subject matter has attracted many filmmakers before. The words “Hurricane Katrina” are rarely heard, and the film wasn’t shot until spring 2007, but this is an account of how three families lived after the storm, two of them still somewhat displaced by flood damages. Barely a second is wasted in the film’s brilliant attention to detail as the Stanich, Blaise and McPeek families cope with day-to-day matters of getting their kids to school and putting food on the table. The residual effects of the disaster are never far away though, apparent in their living situations, complications from stress, concerns about crime and finding work. Rutter released the film this spring, and it’s a worthy documentary even if it seems like a late entry into the Katrina film genre. Rutter will attend the screening. Admission $5. — Will Coviello

BRIT WIT — The Big Top screens

Listening to an unedited version of any current rap song makes it difficult to imagine a time when a poem would spark an obscenity trial. If Allen Ginsberg’s feverish counterculture anthem “Howl” published today, readers would hardly chafe at its depiction of drug use, exuberant copulating and “endless balls.” Rob Epstein and Jeffrey Friedman’s film of the same name attempts to reenergize the poem, which has become a fixture in classrooms and in trustafarians’ dorm rooms, by recreating the inception of the work and the subsequent trial against Lawrence Ferlinghetti, Howl and Other Poems’ U.S. publisher. The film is successful as a character portrait and reenactment, but it often fails to replicate the poem’s electricity. Besides resembling Ginsberg down to the thick-rimmed glasses and facial hair, James Franco brings his signature Ivy League bravadomeets-bashful charm to the poet, who is first seen reading “Howl” to a captivated crowd at San Fransisco’s Six Gallery. The film then interchanges scenes of the reading with the courtroom proceedings (in which Jeff Daniels, Mary-Louise Parker and Jon Hamm — whose Mad Men role seems to have made him victim to serious-man-in-a-suit typecasting — and other stars make appearances) and Franco’s Ginsberg chatting about the relationships and events that inspired the poem, including his friendship with fellow Beat writer Jack Kerouac. Graphic artist Eric Drooker provides illustrations to accompany the poem’s reading, and the cartoonish and often too-literal animations are one of the film’s worst aspects. The film also loses steam while constantly switching gears, since it is essentially three films in one. While flat at times, the film offers a solid performance by Franco and a chance for audiences, many unfazed by popular radio and NSFW Internet culture, a chance to visit a time when a poem could be incendiary. Howl opens Friday at Chalmette Movies. — Lauren LaBorde

The Shape of Things Elizabeth Shannon is back. Not that she ever went anywhere, but her early reputation was based on Zen-like environmental installations of found objects that radiated the surreal “rightness” of a happy accident. Later forays into conceptual postmodernism yielded fewer gems, but here she returns to what she does best. My favorites are the simplest. Circle With Horn is a precisely constructed wooden circle, an antique form from which a metal machine part was long ago cast at one of the foundries that once dotted the riverfront. Within it, a steer horn reclines as comfortably as a cat on a windowsill, and there’s really nothing to it. Yet the old form and antique steer horn radiate the hyper-reality only objects imbued with the unspoken weight of the ages can possess, and their union, like a found-object koan, evokes a sense of serendipitous predestination. In Flow, a wooden form like a cleaved aqueduct bearing a stream of rounded pebbles evokes the elemental tension between the age of steam and the natural forces of the river and the rocks it carries downstream. Some other pieces are fussier or more baroque, but there are more iconic works in this rather meandering show than we have seen in some time. On the walls, deeply hued photographs created via the cyanotype process suggest a promising new direction for Shannon’s archaic-surreal aesthetic. Beth Dary’s delicately crafted porcelain barnacles clustered along the walls of the back gallery are small and subtle even as they strikingly resonate the essence of barnacleness. They also are amazingly detailed, with a precision matched by her black-andwhite encaustic and egg tempera drawing series of dots — like coral formations or meticulously calcified sea creatures — on paper. The drawings and the installation are both based on the way New Orleans and Lower Manhattan were shaped by the Mississippi and New York Harbor in this ingeniously engineered expo of unlikely elemental elegance. — D. Eric Bookhardt

review BRAND NEW SALON IN LAKEVIEW

Child's Play “There are 20 or 22 characters,” Mark Routhier told me about Love Child. How can a director not know how many characters are in a show? In this rollicking comedy, confusion is key. Bob Edes Jr. and Brian Peterson are in top form as they flash from one role to another and often one gender to another, all without costume changes. The absolutely minimal set holds six chairs, and nearly all props are mimed, some with the help of Mike Harkins’ sound effects. The mimicry of life is droll and inventive, but there is so much transformation that you sometimes get lost in the flurry. Determining what happened to whom, however, is part of the humor, and the laughs are nonstop. As a child, Joel (Peterson) made sock puppets to perform shows based on ancient Greek myth. We first see him in Los Angeles picking up his father in a car, but maybe it is not his real father. Family relationships can be as baffling in Love Child as they are in Greek myth. An element of camp makes it more confusing. Joel is being considered for a part in a TV series, and he also has created a ragtag theater company on the East Coast called WordUp. He returns home to direct its next production, Euripides’ Ion. The cast of WordUp includes a feisty Latina and a professional athlete. Sometimes, two characters in a scene are played by the same actor, and Edes and Peterson pull off this sort of zaniness with ease. At one point, the Latina is presented as a TV psychic named Oracle, who tries to work her magic on the athlete. He has gulped a fistful of sedatives and responds only with snoring. Edes is hilarious as he flashes back and forth from the sleeping athlete to the desperate woman. Routhier’s direction is excellent, and it’s hard to imagine a better cast. This is a comic treat of the first order. — Dalt Wonk

preview Fighting Words

The Pirate’s Alley Faulkner Society’s Words and Music festival explores conflict and fiction under the 2010 theme “Literature of War & Collateral Damage.” The focus commemorates William Faulkner’s first novel, Soldier’s Pay, which was written in New Orleans. The five-day festival features readings and discussions by award-winning writers, master classes, agent and editor critiques, luncheons and parties. Headlining the festival is Tim O’Brien, a veteran of the Vietnam War and Pulitzer Prize-nominated author of The Things They Carried. His short stories and novels about the Vietnam War use fiction as a tool to portray the reality of the conflict. “Literature is one way, through a story, poem or novel, of helping people feel something of what it is like to go through war instead of seeing it on the news,” O’Brien says. “Identifying with the characters’ blood raising emotions involved.” O’Brien will host a class for writers and teachers on Wednesday and deliver a keynote address on Thursday at the National World War II Museum. Louisiana actress and writer Rebecca Wells, author of The Divine Secrets of the Ya-Ya Sisterhood, presents a dramatic reading of her short story “E-Z Boy War” from the recently published Best of LSU Fiction on Saturday. British novelist Simon Mawer (The Glass Room) discusses his novel about the struggles of a Jewish family in Czechoslovakia during World War I and II. Saturday night’s “Faulkner for All” event at the Hotel Monteleone features humorist Roy Blount Jr. discussing his latest book, Hail, Hail Euphoria! Presenting The Marx Brothers in Duck Soup, The Greatest War Movie Ever Made, after a screening of the short Marx Brothers antiwar comedy. Blount also serves as toastmaster of the awards dinner.

that with a dish that starts from the assumption that traditional corned beef hash somehow isn’t meaty enough, and remedies the matter with crumbled andouille and bits of boudin. The list of specials usually includes a different take on the basics — like French toast stuffed with caramelized apples — and at least one dish seemingly designed to test the limits of indulgence. A recent variation on eggs Benedict was bolstered by sheets of hog’s head cheese resting on a scone flecked with bacon. Salmon appears across the menu, making its best impression in a traditional role atop the kitchen’s chewy, crusty bagels. The same salmon shows the palate-cluttering limitations of fusion, however, when it’s added — along with capers and goat cheese — to otherwise fine huevos rancheros. Seafood sourced from nearby Lafitte brings the most to the menu though. The crab melt has fresh, firm white lumps of meat big enough to grace the pompano at Galatoire’s, and the stuff also is lavished on any number of brunch dishes. The second Surrey’s opened less than a year after Greg Surrey introduced a spinoff called Surrey’s La Playa in Central City, which functions as a coffee shop with sandwiches and an array of soups ranging from vegan chili to boar sausage gumbo. More is in the works, including a pair of food trailers to work local festivals and a small network of urban farms intended to supply his kitchens while feeding on their compost. Once that happens, the family of Surrey’s locations will be even more closely related than their addresses reveal.

hen independent restaurateurs want to expand in the same market, they tend to diversify. Yet when Greg Surrey decided it was time to grow, he essentially duplicated his casual breakfast and lunch joint, Surrey’s Cafe & Juice Bar, in a new location just 3 miles up the road. He wasn’t worried it might siphon his own customers from the original — in fact, that was the point. Surrey’s is a popular brunch spot, and getting a table during the weekend almost always requires a wait. When the second Surrey’s opened in August in the former Fuel coffee shop, servers at the original gave patrons the option of waiting or just moving down the street. These days, however, both locations routinely have crowds outside their doors by mid-morning. Le Bon Temps Roule, the late-night bar next door to the new location, now often stays open into the morning to serve Bloody Marys to those on Surrey’s weekend waiting list. A self-styled juice bar where customers also sling morning cocktails is Surrey’s all over. It’s decidedly carnivorous yet ready to serve vegans too, a place with wheatgrass for detox but also boudin for breakfast. The two Surrey’s locations have nearly identical menus now and, despite some predictable growing pains, things have settled into an admirable consistency. The new location doesn’t have everything offered at the original, but representative dishes like pain perdu or migas from either kitchen are essentially indistinguishable. There are no eggs in sight on the tofu breakfast platter, which features blocks of ginger-tinged tofu and sauteed vegetables over brown rice. Contrast

Greg Surrey opened a second cafe Uptown.

Add Argentine cuisine to the list of international options at the food court inside Place St. Charles. Tango Argentinean Grill (201 St. Charles Ave., second floor, 527-0071; www.tangoargentineangrill.com) serves empanadas, crepes, grilled meats and pastas. It is one of a handful of eateries in the building with its own dining room.
