Sean O'Keefe, who was seriously injured (along with his son Kevin) during the airplane crash over Alaska this week has issued this statement concerning his and the other survivors health. The statement was issued by Louisiana Superintendent of Education, Paul Pastorek. The crash killed Senator Ted Stevens of Alaska and others.
This is the statement:
Fortunately, the recovery and health of Sean, Kevin and their fellow survivors continues to be very positive. However, the O'Keefe family is grieving as the loss of Sean's colleagues and friends takes hold. The O'Keefe family continues to request prayers and support for the families of Senator Stevens and the four other individuals who lost their lives in this tragic accident.
Sean is making significant improvements. His medical condition has been elevated from the status of critical to serious. Despite initial reports, there was no serious trauma to Sean's pelvis. He did have a dislocated hip, which has been corrected. It does not appear that any of Sean's injuries require surgery. And we are encouraged by medical reports indicating that Sean's injuries are not life-threatening,
Despite suffering serious injuries that have required surgery, Kevin is also showing dramatic improvement. Even so, he is very much on the mend, and his condition has been elevated from serious to fair.
Sean and Laura's greatest concern continues to be for Senator Stevens and the others who did not survive the crash, and, of course, for their families and friends who are suffering this tragic loss. Therefore, at Sean and Laura's specific request, out of respect for Senator Stevens and his family, there will be no additional information or engagement with the media beyond this statement.

Even the Russians are talking about the impeachment of Donald Trump. The L.A. Times reported on Monday, March 20, 2017, “Sergei Markov, a Moscow-based political analyst and a former lawmaker with the ruling United Russia party, claimed the hearings into Russian meddling in the 2016 election are ‘related to an attempt to impeach Trump.’”

Saturday is election day
The race for the District 8 seat in the Louisiana House of Representatives highlights election day this Saturday, March 25.
It is a special election called to fill the seat of Rep. Mike Johnson, who was elected to Congress. The winner will serve out the remainder of his term.
It shouldn’t be a surprise that Louisiana has endured adverse credit rating changes since Democrat Gov. John Bel Edwards assumed office, completing a downgrade trifecta last week.
The post-mortem on the Donald Trump-Comey-House Intelligence Hearing Monday continues.
On the extreme right, from the jowls of someone who knows a thing or two about investigations against a President, Pat Buchannan, there is still “nothing there, there”.
