Written by 

case-steve3Think *Steve Case* founder of AOL .  Think Walter Issacson, New Orleans-born author of biography of Steve Jobs and head of the prestigious Aspen group.  Think Irvin Mayfield, famed New Orleans trumpeter and businessman.

 Think $100,000 for a *Sharktank*-type pitch.  

Think Rise of the Rest Road Tour here in New Orleans today.

Then think about your watching Case and New Orleans-born Issacson and Mayfield discussing entrepreneurship in a Fireside chat and then an incredible entrepreneur “pitch”.

Today, Bayoubuzz.com, will be webcasting via google hangouts this incredible “Rise of the Rest Tour” event.  You can watch it here or on Bayoubuzz.com http://www.bayoubuzz..com.  

Here are the details:.

3pm - 5pm: Pitch Competition with Steve Case, Jean Case, Irvin Mayfield, Ti Martin, and Zach Strief for $100K 

During the Rise of the Rest tour, Steve and his team visit select cities that are showing very promising signs of entrepreneurial growth.

Saving the best for last...of course.

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.
