Louisiana gubernatorial debate: TOPS, Vitter and New Orleans crime
Written by 

gov-mansion 200x149During Wednesday’s night LPB statewide-televised Louisiana debate to help determine which person will be occupying the governor's mansion, most of the focus on the issues were upon education asked by the students as to the impact upon them. 

 For instance, TOPS, the popular program to help fund education.  There was even discussion about other issues such as gay rights. 

Afterwards, during the Bayoubuzz Blab session, radio talk show hosts Jeff Crouere  and Jim Brown (also statewide elected official), discussed these issues with me, however, as would be expected, the conversation turned to Governor Jindal and crime.

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.
