Random Friday Dragonmaster Ramblings
If you must know, however, and for those of you who are wondering why I, a mere Mage, should even care about Mardi Gras, well, I've told the tale before: ever since WVUE, the Fox affilaite in New Orleans, joined forces with the Travel Channel over 20 years ago, I've had a vested interest in the Monarchs of Mardi Gras. And the partnership flourished for a while --- until DIsocvery Communications bought the Travel Channel! Now, in 2007, I wouldn't bloomin' count on the Travel Channel's Mardi Gras programming if ye bloody well paid me!
Best to stick with all the top New Orleans stations --- WWL, WDSU, WGNO and WNOL --- if it be wall-to-wall Mardi Gras coverage you're after. Besides, one or more of them will very likely be the first to identify 2007's Rex, King of Carnival and his Queen! I myself, of course, can't tell you folks that info until the day itself --- so as always, I beg ye stay tun'd!
