A bizarre NOLA mayoral candidate has been caught doctoring photos of herself standing in Disneyland. For the second time.
Kimberly Williamson Butler is the crazy New Orleans mayoral candidate who got busted for using a campaign photo of herself standing in what appeared to be the French Quarter, but which was revealed to be the New Orleans Square at Disneyland. The telltale was that the Disneyland trash-can was visible in the picture.
So Butler's campaign has "fixed" the photo -- they took out the trashcan, after getting threats from Disney's lawyers.

Update 2: Matt sez, "The website has been updated once again. Now the Disneyland photo is gone completely, replaced by something that looks like a campaign poster."

Bamboo has lots of uses beyond just being panda food. Things like bikes, roads, scaffolding, and musical instruments are made from the fast-growing grass. But unless you are participating in a tropical-themed LARP, you probably wouldn’t want a shirt made from bamboo stalks. So why do bamboo bed sheets make any sense? Because yarn extracted from […]
If you want to work in tech, but don’t have any desire to code web apps to help businesses sell things to other business, you might want to consider a career in cybersecurity. Judging from the apparent complete infiltration of Russian hackers in American cyberspace, it seems fair to speculate that there’s a major shortage of […]
All moms are different. But all moms like getting flowers on Mother’s Day, and that’s a fact (not, however a fact we can document in any fashion.) Instead of getting chewed out for forgetting to call her on the second Sunday of May, you can take care of it ahead of time with Teleflora’s flower […]
