Morning Mindbender for Tuesday 2/13/18
During last year’s Mardi Gras in New Orleans, 373 people had this happen to them.
They were arrested
That was the total number of arrests over the 12 day “carnival” season that ends with Fat Tuesday, or Mardi Gras. That actually doesn’t sound that bad! Only about 30 arrestes per day. A lot of them happened on the actual Fat Tuesday though when the official end of partying happens at midnight with the mayor and police making a sweep of Bourbon Street. Today is Mardi Gras. How are you celebrating? Have you ever been to Mardi Gras in New Orleans?
