5 Jobs You Think Are For Losers (That Pay Six Figures) | Cracked.com: Be a skycap! It's a decidedly less lubricating title than "pilot," sure, but those guys who check in your luggage curbside at the airport make a good living. They also assist with navigating the labyrinthine terminals, distributing boarding passes, helping people figure out where in the ever-loving hell their shuttle and/or rental car is, fetching wheelchairs ... they'll even help you wrangle your pets, if you're the kind of weirdo who brings a pet to the airport.

Latham’s Hamburger Inn, New Albany, Mississippi

From behind the screen of his tiny kitchen, up and away from the cast iron skillet where he fries hamburgers, Wally Rakestraw watches for his regulars as they move through the door of Latham’s Hamburger Inn. Some order big, brown paper bags of hamburgers to delivery to a lunch crew. Others eat their hamburgers at the counter, mostly the regular way: mustard, onion, pickles. Wally knows when someone new walks through the door, because he has to make sure he explains to them that “you know it’s a doughburger, right?”
The doughburger is found in various spots across northeast Mississippi, along the northwestern edge of Alabama, up around the middle southern portions of Tennessee. Some explain that doughburgers, ground beef mixed with an extending agent like flour, originated in World War I to extend beef rations for the military. It’s also known as a slugburger (mixed with soymeal), a crackerburger (mixed with cracker crumbs), or a Johnnie burger (a doughburger served up at Johnnie’s Drive In in Tupelo, Mississippi).

Renovated Creole cottage makes for top dollar sale

Selling agent George Jeansonne said his clients hadn’t really been looking at real estate, but knew they wanted a slight upgrade from their smaller French Quarter Cottage. He said when 1025 Burgundy St. came on the market, the buyers called him on a referral.
“They wanted more space for entertaining,” said Jeansonne, an agent with French Quarter Realty. “This home offers a wide open floor plan in the back and has a more modern and sharp look when compared with other properties in the area.”
Listing agent Bryan Francher of Gardner Realtors said the 2,500-square-foot Masonry Creole cottage was built in the 1840s, but was fully renovated in 2014. The home was upgraded with modern finishes and a custom kitchen.
The front house has 2,300 square feet of living space and features two upstairs bedrooms and a master bathroom with walk-in closet and spa-like bath. Francher said the rear guesthouse is a roomy one-bedroom efficiency with private bathroom.

Street art in New Orleans | News | Gambit - New Orleans News and Entertainment

Street art in New Orleans | News | Gambit - New Orleans News and Entertainment: Around Thanksgiving 2014, police made the gruesome discovery of a woman's body stuffed into a Central City trash can. While the neighborhood mourned the woman's death, observers also noted the presence of a cryptic image on a wall near the Danneel Street alley where Mona Fedison's body was stashed, a Cupid-like angel watching a figure walk away from arrows that missed their target.

  Not long afterward, more than three miles away, officials at the Lycee Francais de la Nouvelle Orleans charter school were in the process of completing their purchase of the former Priestley campus in Carrollton when they noticed a politically charged mural on the old gym. "May the Police Force Be With You," the stencil read, with an image of a man being restrained by police while Darth Vader choked him.

Conway conquers Gulf fishing - Sports - The Destin Log - Destin, FL

Conway conquers Gulf fishing - Sports - The Destin Log - Destin, FL: Matt Conway of Kansas City, Mo. tried his luck at Gulf fishing on Sunday and did quite well.
His first-trip ever on the Gulf of Mexico wasn’t on a charter boat or even a party boat from the Destin fishing fleet, but on a kayak he rented.
Conway said he had found a company online that rented out kayaks decked out for fishing. So he gave it a try on Sunday. Launching the kayak off the beach at Henderson Beach State Park he ventured off about a mile or so with a couple of spinning rods, a little squid for bait as well as a few artificials.

Meet The Young Man On A Mission To Transform The Mississippi Delta�|�Julian Mitchell

Meet The Young Man On A Mission To Transform The Mississippi Delta�|�Julian Mitchell: The Mississippi Delta is a storied stretch of the Deep South, coveted as the birthplace of Blues, a form of soul music derived from field workers singing pain-inspired chants depicting their deprived conditions manning the cotton fields. The timeless genre is reflective of the region's reputation, haunted by a history of brutal segregation and extreme poverty. Though it's come to be appreciated for unmatched hospitality, top tier dining, and home to many southern landmarks - little notable progress has been made to transform its troubled perception and reality.

With minimal investments in education and a lack of resources, many families in the region are trapped in a cycle of generational stagnancy, unequipped with the necessary training to thrive in today's evolving economy. In an era reflecting remarkable growth in entrepreneurship, digital media and modern technology, there's an an increasing decline in agricultural jobs and other forms of manual labor work, which once stood as the lifeblood of rural America.
