Louisiana Governor-Elect John Bel Edwards will be the keynote luncheon speaker at the Council for A Better Louisiana's 53rdAnnual Meeting and Luncheon to be heldWednesday, December 2ndat the L'Auberge Hotel Conference Center in Baton Rouge.


Thought you knew everything there is to know about Bobby Jindal?

How about:

“He wore suits to school, sometimes accompanied by a bow tie with a dollar bill pattern, and carried a briefcase through the halls instead of a backpack,” Coppins writes. “When Oliver Stone’s blockbuster movie ‘Wall Street’ came out in 1987, Jindal memorized and frequently quoted from the triumphalist pro-capitalism speech that cutthroat investor Gordon Gekko, played by Michael Douglas, delivers to shareholders of a troubled paper company.”

This is a quote from a new book about the presidential campaign, with a few of the chapters focused upon Jindal, who quit the campaign a few weeks ago.
