Don’t tell anyone, but, tomorrow, Louisiana will close out the election season in the United States. The elections has been a dud. Still, the state will be voting on a couple of congressional seats, some amendments and, a US Senate spot.
David Vitter, who has been the Louisiana US Senator, will retire from his perch in Washington DC and two guys, both with deep southern drawls are running to replace him. Shortly after 8PM, one will be in the winner’s circle.
Say it isn’t so. The Bayou State, made up of docile souls who are law abiding, courteous and well-trained motorists, has just been tagged by several rating services as having the worst drivers in the nation. Look, the folks down here in the deepest of the deep Southern states do get a little rowdy now and then. Maybe Mardi Gras and Saturday night in Tiger Stadium. But day in and day out, we are a bunch of lousy drivers? It just can’t be!
Disguised as a general seeking a potential cabinet position, it wasn’t too hard to slide beneath Mayor Rudy Giuliani’s flailing arms to take a peek at the presents under Donald Trump’s Christmas tree in the lobby of Trump Tower. It was impossible to see all of them, however, because there were so many it took a half dozen NYPD Officers to guard the swag.
Higher education in America is in crisis, not just because of spiraling tuition costs, but because of the toxic atmosphere on campuses. The disease of political correctness has taken root in our colleges and the causes being championed relate very little to the supposed education being offered on campuses.
The tragic shooting death of former NFL star Joe McKnight on December 1 has placed Jefferson Parish Sheriff Newell Normand in the media spotlight.
Initially, he was criticized for not immediately arresting Ronald Gasser, the motorist who shot McKnight in the road rage incident that ended in Terrytown. Normand’s decision to continue the investigation and wait before arresting Gasser unleashed a torrent of vitriol against Normand from civil rights leaders. This was clearly unjustified and is the result of too many people in our community looking at every issue through the lens of race.
