New Orleanians Struck Down by Pain-in-Neck Epidemic

This sounds like a joke, but I've been feeling under the weather for the past few days and one of the main symptoms is a pain in the neck. It has taken me some time to realize that it may be the result of a swollen gland. And meanwhile, everyone else seems to be suffering from the same thing. "Does your neck hurt?" someone emailed today.

And that's the perfect segue to this next bit. A group of people are planning a demonstration at the Cabildo tomorrow in Jackson Square, where GMA will be filming a closed-door town hall with John Edwards and a pre-selected representation of our town.

From the press release: New Orleans citizens, fed up with the resurgence of violent crime in their city, will stage a peaceful protest in front of the Cabildo on Jackson Square on Monday, July 16 at 6 a.m. to demand the resignation of District Attorney Eddie Jordan.
