Video: Author Honeycutt Talks Edwin Edwards Book
Written by 

Edwards BookRight now, the “Louisiana Buzz” is none other than Edwin Edwards.

Edwards, who served four terms as Louisiana Governor and then ten years in prison, is now making the book tour rounds and is indeed a “hot” item—since he is out of jail and is a free man.

 The author of Edwards’s biography “Edwin Edwards, Governor of Louisiana”, Leo Honeycutt is also on the road—both with and without Edwards. Honeycutt is signing books and discussing the personality, politics and the mystique of the man who dominated politics in Louisiana during the last half of the 20th century.

Last week, Bayoubuzz’s co-publisher Althea Sabludowsky interviewed Honeycutt . Below are two segments of the Bayoubuzz interview and the respective details and highlights:

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.
