Mud Bugs

Mmmm... Seldom is political news quite so tasty.

Regina Morrison Newman held the 3rd *not quite* Annual Memphisiana Crawfish Boil at her house Saturday.

Mayoral candidate Herman Morris and his lovely wife were both in attendance, as were District 89 Tennessee House candidate Kevin Gallagher and Memphis City Council candidate Ian Randolph.

Former Shelby County Democratic Party Chairman Jim Strickland and "Save Libertyland" activist Denise Parkinson, both of whom have pulled petitions to run for the city council in District 5 were in attendance as well.

And of course, any time you offer free food, the bloggers turn up--- David Holt, his lovely wife Margo, , Steve "The Blogfather" Steffens, and I held down that end of the fort.

*Thanks to Paula Casey for clearing up my confusion about Regina's name.

I am really sorry to have missed it. I intended to go, but got stuck watching not one, but two, lacrosse at CBHS while getting completely fried in the hot sun.

But you know a mom's gotta do what a mom's gotta do.

It was definitely a good time. I'm sorry you guys weren't there.
