You’re probably asking yourself what the hell is Quasi NOLA? It’s a mysterious man or woman of considerable wit who tweets about New Orleans. Quasi NOLA does not engage with the hoi polloi and remains a riddle wrapped in an enigma shrouded in mystery or something like that. It’s kind of like the King of Comus only without the pervy mask and tights. And Comus was never this amusing or clever. I think Quasi is even sober, which rules out several contenders…
On to the tweet of the week. It was actually launched on September 20 as I was suffering through the LSU-Mississippi State game. It mentioned your humble blogger and this very blog and, unlike that game, merits a Les Miles hand clap:
Twitter mob boss and First Draft blog aficionado "Adrastos" isn't Greek, he's a closet Spaniard. Yes, he can sing Feliz Navidad.

There are many theories as to the identity of Quasi NOLA. Quasi is clearly a native or longtime resident because he/she/it is fond of retro NOLA references. And it seems to be someone who is acquainted with the post-Federal Flood blogpocheh as Liprap called us. I have one serious candidate who spends a lot of time on the water but it’s just a guess.
I’m reasonably certain that it’s not Quasimodo. He’s never been spotted in the bell tower of St. Louis Cathedral, unless, that is, he’s taken to humping lucky dogs on Jackson Square. It’s just a hunch, which I should probably take back…
So, Quasi NOLA, I know you’d rather remain anonymous, but there are tweeter tube sleuths on the case. If you choose to reveal yourself, we will surely grant you SANCTUARY.
As you can see below, I’m a Laughton man when it comes to the Hunchback of Notre Dame, which is NOT about Notre Dame football. No, Irish; except for Maureen O’Hara, Edmond O’Brien and Thomas Mitchell. Damn, that list of distinguished players in the 1939 version blew the joke. Oh well, that never stopped me before. SANCTUARY:
