I was hoping Gov. Jindal would be able to clean up some of the criminal mess in New Orleans, but I guess the swamp was too deep even for him.

This from Wiki:
Second line is a tradition in brass band parades in New Orleans, Louisiana. The "main line" or "first line" is the main section of the parade, or the members of the actual club with the parading permit as well as the brass band. Those who follow the band just to enjoy the music are called the "second line." The second line's style of traditional dance, in which participants walk and sometimes twirl a parasol or handkerchief in the air, is called "second lining." It has been called "the quintessential New Orleans art form — a jazz funeral without a body."[1] Another significant difference from so called "jazz funerals" is second line parades usually lack the slow hymns and dirges played at funerals (although this is not a hard rule; some organizations may have the band play something solemn towards the start of the parade in memory of members deceased since their last parade).

Team Obama: “Excellent news! We needed something just like this to keep the media busy for the next week or so in order to bury stories like Benghazi, Boston Marathon, the crooked IRS, etc.”.

Thanks. That’s still rather confusing, but it’s not your fault ;-). Things like there being 200 people “at the event” (the shooting?). Is that 200 people in the parade? 200 people watching? 200 between paraders and spectators?

We don’t have a Mother’s Day parade here: there will be a big one on Memorial Day.

Every single one of these mass shootings is suspect IMO. They seem to crop up every time congress goes all in for one of their gun grabs or some gun control BS legislation

A parade that you can attend only after having snorted your second line of coke?

My area in North Texas got most of the criminal human debris from Katrina but looks like New Orleans still has their share. This group of feral human beings has turned my once wonderful city and school system into a crime ridden hell hole.

They’ve changed the story at the source link since I asked.

Anyway, wouldn’t it be “the second line OF a parade,” rather than a “second-line parade”? Seems like you need the first line, first.

A few photos at the following link;

The NOPD says:
Serpas said those three suspects likely worked together, and at least two different weapons were used. One of the suspects is described as a man between 18 and 22 years old with short hair and wearing a white shirt and blue jeans, Serpas said.

Every Sunday, there are brass bands marching through different parts of New Orleans. It’s a tradition that goes back to the 19th century in New Orleans. The people who follow the parade - alongside the band, on the wide avenues - are called the Second Line.
It’s incredibly beautiful, both visually and musically. I have been there and done it.

My area in North Texas got most of the criminal human debris from Katrina but looks like New Orleans still has their share.

Right after Katrina the south side of Atlanta had "Reelect Ray Nagan" billboards all over. We got our fair share of the debris.

The band has between ten and twenty people. The spectators are not passively ”watching the parade” - they are following alongside the parade, as an adjacent march.
