"Too much traffic"
Beautiful and so moving... The artist is so right that NOLA is still uncovering bodies while Cheney's friend survived. A beautiful picture that captures the spirit of triumph and joy amidst sadness cast aside for something Karl Rove will erase from our public memory in a matter of minutes. . . I hope "The New Yorker" editors choose something to celebrate Mardi Gras for this coming week's cover. Thank you for bringing this to our attention.
Strange, yes. TIME magazine gives 8 pages to the Cheney shooting nonstory, and the NYKer cannot even find time to run this great cover art and story. Phew!

As a diptych for that beautiful cover, the costumes people actually wore during Mardi Gras.
