For those of you coming down to The Swamp,

Have fun! I grew up on Bourbon Street ('struth!) back in the days when most of the major parades wound up their route in the French Quarter. At age 9, I thought it cool to be able to hear the parade approaching and have time to run out and see it and to catch the stuff the float-riders threw. It's kind of like interactive street theatre: You yell at the float, "Throw me sumpin', Mistah!" and they toss you beads or cups or doubloons.

As a grownup, I'm over it. I don't drink any more, I don't like fighting for a parking place under normal circumstances, and I hate being in crowds. Like a lot of New Orleans dwellers, I dream of the day when I can afford to leave town for the entire 10-14 days.

But everybody should see Mardi Gras at least once. You'll remember it all your life.
