2 statewide debates planned
    Two televised statewide debates are planned for  the U.S. Senate race. Candidates Republican John Kennedy and Democrat Foster Campbell have accepted invitations to participate.

    The first one will be held onThursday, December 1and hosted by Louisiana Public Broadcasting (LPB)  and a Council for a Better Louisiana (CABL).  It will be aired on LPB stations around the state.
    The second one is being hosted by Nexstar and WVLA-TV of Baton Rouge and will be broadcast on Friday December 2.  It will be carried locally by KTAL-TV.
    On Monday, November 28 the two candidates will appear in a forum put on by the Press Club of Baton Rouge.  It will net be televised.
    Update: The Fax-Net has learned that Kennedy  has declined to participate in the LPB and CABL debate as well as the one sponsored by the Baton Rouge Press Club.
    Campbell’s reaction was immediate.  “What is  Mr. Kennedy running from? The last time he skipped out on the people of Louisiana he let Bobby Jindal sell us out to Wall Street,” said Campbell. “John Kennedy is chicken. Plain and simple. What is he running from?”

It estimated, in 2013, that sales of beer on the 4th could total $1 billion, doubtlessly higher today. “In moderation,” claims a CA brewery investor, Grover McKean, “beer is tasty and healthy.” Who could disagree?

joe mikaAs Donald Trump faces the top world leaders this week, including a face-time with Vladimir Putin, and as his healthcare proposals face an uphill climb, his poll numbers for how the nation views him could be better.

According to a morning Consult/Politico poll released Wednesday morning, his tweets, including that against MSNBC's Mika Brzezinski, and his personality are not helping him, at all.

indy dayII know the calendar says we are approaching the 4th of July, but, it just doesn’t feel like Independence Day.

Perhaps it should.  It’s hot as heck.  The airlines have been packed. The hot dogs are ready for grilling.  The umps are saying, "play ball". The patriotic activities are scheduled. The fireworks are ready-for-blasting.

It’s part of the country’s fundamental essence that each man and woman can say what they feel about government, or anything else, proving President Donald Trump needs some civics lessons.
