If you remember nothing else about history on this day, remember the American city of New Orleans "dodged the bullet" until the federal levees failed. We will never forget.
So have a Happy Décade II , Jour du Sextidi Messidor CCXIV* from the Wet Bank Guide as we Go 4th on the River and celebrate, an activity we have pretty much perfected for all occasions, even in the face of death.
Before I grill the frankfurters, I will boil the shrimps. Eh la bas.
* I cheated in the headline and added the first décade to sextidi to get 16, so it looked a little less confusing. If I have mangled both arithmetic and French, I apologize.
