The New Orleans Levee
The New Orleans Levee is a satirical newspaper, in the vein of <>The Onion devoted to all things New Orleanian/Louisianian. Some of the articles are based on actual events, while others are based only on hilarity. Some knowledge of Louisiana culture is necessary to get the humor sometimes, though.
I am a contributing writer for the newspaper; I write under a pseudonym, Nicole Chapuis, since a lot of what I write is out there. The newspaper's archives and current issue are not fully online yet, but some of the paper is!
Read some of my articles here:
"The big Weiner show may help disgraced congressman"--does Weiner want notoriety among young voters?
"Claiborne idea good or bad?"--they put an overpass in the middle of the city, ruining a community, and now want to take it away, ruining the new community that formed under it over the past few decades; who will be affected?
And here are a couple not by me that I particularly enjoy:
"Parking lot rules Family Dollar," by Charlie Vergos--the parking lot gets more shopping action than the store itself.
"Your neighbor may soon be arresting you," by Lois Lagniappe--New Orleans PD instates DIY community policing after firing all its officers for corruption.
I hope you enjoy these articles!
