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

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.
