Earl Long is sworn in as Louisiana's governor in 1956. (Times-Picayune archive)Guests are to be treated well. That's just the way it is in St. Tammany Parish. Always has been. So when it came to the dispirited but defiant old man staying at the little roadside motel just outside Covington in summer 1959, Beatrice Erwin and her two sisters did what they were brought up to do.
If Bill Murray's show at the Mahalia Jackson Theater on Monday is anywhere near as entertaining as he was during my interview with him, it should be considered a must-see. Dude is truly a national treasure. Here's what he had to say: http://ow.ly/AXnI30iZkeR
Hey, @MerriamWebster. Give me a shout next time you're in New Orleans so I can show you around and prove to you that "grooveable" is, indeed, a word. (grüv-ə-bəl, adjective -- capable of being grooved to; grooveworthy. Example: "Man, New Orleans is a grooveable feast.")
If you are as fascinated reading this story -- about the bizarre summer of 1959 when Covington became the temporary state capital -- as I was writing it, I will have done my job: http://ow.ly/CF1730iZhbe

Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
