Y@ Speak: The boil-your-water bye week



New Orleans residents say we live in the Third World while using Twitter to complain about the boil water advisory issued last week (hey, the Saints didn't play this week, so I guess everyone needed something to yell about). Also this week: it's Biden versus Ryan in the veep debate, changes in the Voodoo Experience lineup, and a dude skydives from space.
