Here is the 4th most viewed photo in my flickr photostream with 2,870 views:
That’s New Orleans institution Chris Owens appearing in the 2007 Shangri-La carnival parade. In my flickr photostream Chris Owens is almost as popular as Anderson Cooper–only the 3 photos I took of Cooper walking a dog in 2006 have been clicked more frequently.
If you’re from out of town and that link above to Chris Owens’ Wikipedia page insufficiently clarified the nature of her popularity, let me direct you to some posts I wrote in 2008 that reported on a blog war that erupted in New Orleans over Ms. Owens.
