    Yes, this is good writing.
    Chris appeared with a necktie tied around his forehead in his column mug as he described the differences and similarities between St. Louis and New Orleans a few years back during the NFL playoffs.
    A real loopy, Dave Barry-sort of guy. Fun to read.
    He's always been accepted by the masses as an exceptional writer.
    This latest piece does nothing to disprove those theories.
    Good to see he realized his problem, came to grips and got help.

    Damn it, FB. I've already read the books by Brinkley, Horne, Van Heerden and McQuaid and Schleifstein, and now I've gotta read another. Stop it already. ;)

    Wow...I'll join the chorus of praise if for no reason than to keep this column up at the top.

    Chris Rose is a pro. He has been knocking 'em out of the park since Katrina...he did a damn good one a few weeks ago after the Monday night game.
