New Orleans mayor’s race from sleeper to Bagneris-Landrieu shocker
Written by 

landrieu-press-superbowl-webcastNo doubt, the announcements that Judge decided to quit his position on the Orleans Parish Civil District Courts and jump into the New Orleans elections against a popular Mayor from a famous and powerful political background, is a shocker.

 Judge Michael Bagneris, a familiar face in the legal and political circles, having worked for Mayor Dutch Morial in the past, has less than two months to raise money, get schooled on the issues, generate a team of supporters and not just opponents of the current mayor Mitch Landrieu.

Jeff Crouere, talk show host of WGSO and Bayoubuzz.com columnist and this publication’s publisher, Stephen Sabludowsky, talked about the sudden appearance of Bagneris on the New Orleans mayoral front.

Among topics discussed were:

Who is Judge Michael Bagneris

Why is he running?

Can he win?

How much will the Morial family be supporting Bagneris or will their close ties to the Landrieu’s make it difficult for the Morials to fully embrace a close family ally, Bagneris?

Crouere talks Landrieu's, Clarkson, Foti:, Bagneris, Gusman, et. al. humdingers

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.
