Just after I was walked out of the Ritz-Carlton last week, I emailed an editor at the Times Picayune. The subject line: "Tossed from the party." The message: "Can I write about it?" The answer: "Yes!"
But, of course, Chris Rose was in attendance as well, and he wrote about it. After hearing no response from the paper on my own piece--the only report that actually was from someone on the street and in the party--I emailed them again. The answer: Nice work, can't run it, Katrina Anniversary, Democratic convention, Chris Rose, etc.
So, you can now read it here instead.
