    Just got back from NOLA on Thursday.

    The Advocate announced Wednesday heavy additions to its New Orleans bureau staff. And it had a presence in mini-markets and drug stores about the equal of the Times-Picayune. They're making a serious push.

    The job itself is probably good, but you'd have to live in Baton Rouge. That's one of the trashier cities I've been around, and I spend more time there than I'd prefer.
