New Orleans Mayor Mitch Landrieu — backed by a crowd of politicians, police officials and business leaders — presented a new French Quarter security plan on Wednesday, March 25 on the steps of the 8th District police precinct on Royal Street.

This story is on a developing situation, and has been and will be updated.

A 63-year-old man attacked TSA agents at Louis Armstrong New Orleans International Airport with a machete and wasp spray on Friday night.

The man, identified by the Jefferson Parish Sheriff's Office as Richard White, of Kenner, was transported to a local hospital and underwent surgery, but died Saturday afternoon around 4 p.m. in a New Orleans hospital.

Early in the morning of Friday, March 13, a 55-year-old woman reported that she had been accosted by a man inside the Tulane Medical Center parking garage.

Spend a few days in New Orleans and see how often the name Fred Kasten is heard and mentioned. Whether curating the French Quarter Festival’s Let Them Talk interviews in April, or curating the Satchmo Summerfest seminars in August, or winning a regional Edward R. Murrow Award, or producing his wonderful radio shows, Talkin’ Jazz and Jazz New Orleans, Kasten is an indispensable man in the life of his beloved hometown.

The New Orleans Saints have traded tight end Jimmy Graham to the Seattle Seahawks.

Graham, a fan favorite, set numerous club records and was a potent tool in the Saints’ offensive arsenal — but had suffered from nagging injuries and declining performance this past season.

Graham will be sent to Seattle along with a fourth-round draft pick, in exchange for Seattle center Max Unger and a first-round pick.

The Saints now have three of the first 44 2015 draft picks.

What shoulder injury?

Anthony Davis, the New Orleans Pelicans’ seemingly unstoppable phenom who puts the power in power forward, returned to the floor of the Smoothie King Center on Wednesday night and put the visiting Detroit Pistons away with 39 points, 13 rebounds and 8 blocks.

Davis had missed the previous five games with an AC joint sprain in his right shoulder (defined as an injury to the connective tissue between the clavicle and shoulder blade), suffered during a collision with Miami’s Hassan Whiteside on Feb. 21.

The final Friday of Mardi Gras is upon us, which means it's time for most New Orleanians to wrap up the final odds and ends at the office, hit the supermarket to stock up, and party their hearts out until Fat Tuesday.

However, some of us have jobs that necessitate interacting with people outside of the Gulf Coast, many of whom, let's face it, just don't understand what in the world is going on down here. For them, Mardi Gras is just another snowy Tuesday.

There are a lot of amazing things that happen on the court at a New Orleans Pelicans game.

Like pretty much anything All-Star power forward Anthony Davis does. Halfway through the season Davis is a clear candidate for NBA MVP, a man who seems more suited to a video game than a real-life basketball team.
