People can be forgiven for thinking Trixie the Angry Poodle is The Indy‘s totemic icon, but we’re really mostly in a Homer Simpson frame of mind, and we like to think we’re all “mostly balanced,” too — well, except when it comes to donuts and oil spills. But it’s nothing like N’awlins, our copy editor Diane Mooshoolzadeh found out, where the mood is all voodoo, jazz everywhere, bars, bars, bars, cops on horseback, the best food ever — including beignets at the Café Du Monde — and this water that fell from the sky! Oh, yeah. Rain!
