Paulsen to Bonaparte: "The jig is up!" You won't find it online, but at the end of this week's morning missive, WWL-TV's esteemed senior anchor (Hi Eric!) admitted he, um, actually reads these things:
"So, lots of stuff going on this weekend. You can read about it in Gambit, and if you'd like more information about what's happening around town or the metro area, you can always check out Gambit -- the Web site is Bestofneworleans.com, or pick up a copy of this week's Gambit at spots all over town."
That part he says every week. Today, however, he added conspicuously, "Or you can check out Noah's blog, too, where he's spreading all sorts of rumors about me."
It's no rumor: Paulsen is even taller and more distinguished-looking in person!
