Fortunately, the Super Bowl lived up to its billing as a close, hard fought game between two great teams. Fans certainly enjoyed the action on the field and Indianapolis did a fine job of hosting the game.

Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure vice-president Karen Handel resigned Tuesday after being blamed for the maneuver to oust Planned Parenthood.

The Fax-Net reported last week that the Louisiana Democratic Party is searching for a creditable candidate to run against incumbent Republican 4th District U.S. Rep. John Fleming, who is seeking a third two-year term.

As recently as Jan. 31—less than a week ago—we told you that Gov. Bobby Jindal is following the playbook of the American Legislative Exchange Council (ALEC) almost to the letter.
Eli Manning solidified his status as an "elite" quarterback by leading his underdog Giants to a thrilling 21-17 victory over the Patriots and Tom Brady on Sunday in the Super Bowl at Indianapolis.
Three minutes was all Manning needed to drive the Giants to their second Super Bowl win over the Patriots under his command.
He said he was elite at the start of the season and he proved it with his record-setting performance on Sunday and was crowned the game's MVP for the second time in four years. There is no doubt now that he belongs among the best to play the game.
