The following is an excerpt from a San Jose Mercury Newspaper article written by Sal Pizzaro:

FAT TUESDAY: The Super Tuesday/Mardi Gras collision is producing an interesting side effect at San Jose State University.

The politically minded students and faculty supporting the Gulf Coast Civic Works Project plan to parade around campus Tuesday with BugHornRex, a traditional New Orleans jazz band.

They plan to make politically themed signs and masks - whatever those are - in the morning before starting a procession at the statues of Tommie Smith and John Carlos just before noon.

The parade is supposed to wrap up with a New Orleans-style cookout at the Seventh Street Plaza barbecue pits.
