Outstanding T-P editorial lauds Tagliabue

The Times-Picayune's editorial page today features a terrific read, entitled Thank you, Mr. Tagliabue. It's an absolute must-read.

The editorial notes that because of the efforts of outgoing NFL commissioner Paul Tagliabue, the Saints will play a full schedule of games in New Orleans in 2006, a concert and fan experience will be held there on the season-opening weekend this fall, a New Year's Eve game is planned, and an NFL owners meeting will take place there this fall.

It also states that Tagliabue "has committed to remain involved in the Saints return to New Orleans and the metro area's recovery."

Which is the best news of all, and a tremendous cap to a very well-run tenure as NFL commish.
