“I was elated that the President picked a local New Orleans person to head up this important task force.  Not only does Lisa have the passion for helping protect our coastline, but she also has an open line to the White House, which will make her invaluable in helping us get through this tragedy and make our coastline whole,” said President Nungesser.

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.
