    SPOILER ALERT: This is my job. So you can ask me a bunch of questions if you want them answered immediately. Also, I didn't write the ad, I just posted it. (The fans really are rabid, though. Literally, I think, in at least a couple cases.)

    Hey @CarlSpackler, I'm a big fan of The Band, have you ever met Miss Bessie? I heard she's in Lake Charles.

    If he went "straight down the Mississippi River to the Gulf of Mexico," he missed Lake Charles by a good 120 miles.
