Other people’s prose:

The city descended on Bourbon Street. New Orleanians, as a general rule, do not like to go there. It is a tourist trap, too crowded and cheap. But on Sunday night it was a beating, living, pulsating mass of people, like a capital city of some country after a dictator has been overthrown.

Beer-stained, bead-scattered Bourbon Street was black and gold wall to wall — the bars on either side were half empty, playing either “Stand Up and Get Crunk,” the Saints’ current theme song, or the old standby, “When the Saints Go Marching In.”

From the balconies, in lieu of confetti, they threw cocktail napkins. In lieu of expensive Champagne, people raised the cheap stuff.

A middle-aged woman stood in a doorway wiping tears from her eyes. In the middle of the street someone was holding up a banner: “HELL FREEZES OVER”

“We won the Super Bowl, brother,” said a man in a tuxedo, leaning on his friend who was wearing a Saints jersey. “Can you imagine that after 40 years?”

  15. I believe everything said was very logical. But, what about this? suppose you added a little information? I ain’t saying your content is not solid, however suppose you added a post title that makes people desire more? I mean Frolic of My Own – Comments on We won is kinda boring. You ought to peek at Yahoo’s front page and note how they create post titles to get people to open the links. You might add a related video or a related picture or two to grab people interested about what you’ve written. Just my opinion, it might bring your posts a little livelier.
