More that any other American city, New Orleans is known for its rational, level-headed planning and expertise in all things float-related.

Can't have dead bodies decomposing in the open and not expect some bad juju. Anyone leave any offerings? Or nah? NOLA of all places should know better.

I don’t think the issue is the fact that the float is tandem.

This is ridiculous. Two people’s stupidity shouldn’t ruin tradition.
