In response to Senator Jack Donahue's recent call to constituents and local elected officials to help protect Louisiana's 1st Congressional District, Rep. Kevin Pearson (R-76) issued the following st

atements:

"I am working in Baton Rouge with Sen. Jack Donahue and other local lawmakers to keep the Northshore in the 1st Congressional District. I know that Senators Donahue, Crowe, and Nevers are working tirelessly in the Senate to advocate for a plan that keeps the Northshore together and when the bill is up for consideration in the House, I will do the same.

 

"Governor Jindal has not been an ally during this process as he continues to push for the creation of two long Congressional Districts in North Louisiana.I encourage my constituents and all Northshore residents to flood the Governor's office with calls and e-mails stressing the importance of keeping the entire Northshore in the 1st Congressional District. The Governor needs to hear your voice."

catRarely, have I seen few issues that have generated as much raw heat, tension, and passion than the Confederate monuments controversy. 

Just as existed during the real civil war, where brothers battled brothers, social media is the battleground, particularly Facebook, pitting friend against friend.

On one side of the tense divide, there are those who are protecting the New Orleans civil war era monuments.  Burnt in effigy, forever, is the symbol of Mayor Mitch Landrieu for up-ending what the monument protectors consider to be the loving civil society of New Orleans.

Lately, events have turned somewhat militaristic.

Some protectors of the Confederate monuments have been staying vigilant, in person and online, even surveilling during the wee hours of the morning, waiting for the next Mayor Landrieu attack. On Sunday morning, with protections of snipers, masked workers and a dumbstruck audience, the worst of all of the monuments was cut and carried., the Liberty Monument.
