Happy Bastille Day!

Looking for something to storm? Try the Orleans D.A.'s office. And take Southern Mom's husband's cue:

I had to tell this: There were many NEWS' stories about the D.A. in New Orleans allowing harden criminals out of jail. They were not being arraigned within the appropriate time frame. George went to the D.A.'s office with a few dry erase calendars from Office Max. He told the receptionist that these were for Mr. Eddie Jordan so he could do his job a little better. Maybe these would help his attorneys know when a prisoner was coming up for arraignment. He was asked to leave.

Hey, one man doing this is easy to put off.

But thousands of citizens bringing in as many calendars? Ha!

Thousands of people sent peanuts to CBS to save Jericho, and they did it.

I would think that thousands of people bringing in calendars (and you can get desk calendars at Office Depot for like, $3) and other such organizational tools would get a huge point across, and get the city some really good PR out of a really bad situation.
