How Lowe Can He Go?

In case you missed it, and my guess is not everyone reads the official blog of the Chicago Tribune (and why do people who already have a public voice end up blogging? what does that tell us about what they can or can't say in their official capacities?), there's been a Rob Lowe sighting in New Orleans:

Lowe and his two young children joined the pool of reporters holding at Mother's, with the amiable encounter quickly becoming a press conference of sorts. Lowe, in town for production starting today on a TNT Christmas movie entitled A Perfect Day, said he had never been here before.

He had been offered either New Orleans or Canada, he said, and accepted a pay cut to work in New Orleans. "They took the bait, and here we are in New Orleans," Lowe said. "It's a good place to bring business to."

Hmm...maybe he's just feeling guilty for helping lead to the McCaw Meltdown at the News-Press, thereby setting in motion the events that lead to 17 former N-P staffers to leave their jobs?

Good to hear that Mother's is still there. I could use me some slop.

Yeah, Mother's is a great place to get a real New Orleans Po-Boy (poor boy). I went to Audubon park on Sunday and was craving a snowball. Stopped at one of the best places to get one (Magazine St near Popeyes). Rob Lowe and his family apparently were craving one also. He has good taste ;-) If he ever happens to come across this blog, I want to thank him for choosing New Orleans to film his Christmas movie. I didn't know why he was in town when I saw him and didn't want to be just another fan.
