Bad Days Ahead for New Orleans'...

Times-Picayune, that noble paper mentioned in Randy Newman's wonderful "New Orleans Wins the War" from his 1988 album Land of Dreams:

Momma used to take me to Audubon Park
Show me the ways of the world
She said, "Here comes a white boy;
There goes a black one;
That one's an octoroon.
This little cookie here's a macaroon.
That big round thing's a red balloon.
And the paper down here's called the Picayune.
And here's a New Orleans tune..."
