Y@ Speak: Of Rihanna, Hornets and oysters



After last week's Times-Picayune bombshell, it seems things are getting at least somewhat back to normal. Celebrities are working and eating sandwiches around town, another local food festival happened and, finally, some sports-related news that doesn't involve bounties. It always seems when one horrible thing happens to this city, a good sports thing happens — and vice versa. Can't we have all the good things at once?
