First Edwin Edwards Press Conference With New Wife Trina Simply Vintage
Written by 

It was a vintage Edwin Edwards press conference at the Monteleone Hotel in New Orleans French Quarter. 

Edwards, who spent the last years in life in federal prison, addressed the media Saturday for the first time since his release. In doing so, Edwards blamed the U.S. Judge for being unfair and suggested that certain witnesses who testified against him were the cause of his conviction earlier last decade. 

 After making a statement preceding reporters’ questions, a hoarse and coughing ex-Governor responded to the media with the poise and wit that has marked his relationship with the fourth estate throughout his public life. 

Edwards introduced his new wife, Trina Grimes Scott, with whom he married yesterday. 

During the press conference, aside from discussing his personal life which has fascinated the state for decades, Edwards responded to questions about his friend and now State Senator John Alario, the current Louisiana Democratic Party, Katrina, George Bush, current governor Bobby Jindal, U.S. President Barack Obama and other issues

mass2On July 4, 1778, George Washington doubled liquor rations for the soldiers quartered in Princeton, NJ, as a way to celebrate Independence Day. It’s fitting, therefore, that the Fourth of July is America's top-selling beer holiday, according to the Beer Institute. 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. 

Yet, it just doesn’t feel like independence day.

bill rights2To President Thomas Jefferson, July 4th celebrated more than the signing of the Declaration of Independence. He thought it was a link to the future. The message prominent colonists sent to King George III led to the Constitution and the Bill of Rights, the initial and most prominent feature of which is the First Amendment that guarantees free speech. 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.
