Ready or not, like it or not, elections are here in Louisiana. Things have changed so fast in the Bayou State that it is hard to put the next two months of the election cycle into perspective. The political landscape in Louisiana has been turned upside down since the last election cycle in 2007. At that time, Democrats occupied numerous statewide offices, and both the House and the Senate in the Legislature were majority Democrat. The election of 2007 saw Republicans make gains in the Legislature and statewide offices, but the Democrats were still very much in the game.

Mayor Mitch Landrieu released the following statement today following news that the U.S. Postal Service (USPS) plans to conduct a study to examine the feasibility of closing the New Orleans Processing and Distribution Center on Loyola Avenue:
“I am working aggressively with our congressional delegation and the Obama Administration to fight to keep these 880 jobs in New Orleans. This processing and distribution center provides critical services to the residents and businesses of this region, including everyone with zip codes that begin with 700 or 701.
“It’s the Economy, Stupid!” Remember that slogan during the Presidential election of 1992? James Carville coined Bill Clinton’s campaign slogan and won the race. It bears repeating again.

Saints quarterback Drew Brees talked about his contract extension negotiations, the Bears, Urlacher, Colston, his receivers after Wednesday's practice: His comments:
It looks like Marques Colston might be sidelined. How does that affect the offense?
Obviously He’s a big part of what we do. I feel like what we’ve been really good at going on six years now, when a guy goes down there are other guys to pick up the void and the slack and usually do a great job. I feel like Adrian Arrington, Robert Meachem, Lance Moore, Devery Henderson, all those guys will do a great job to fill that.
After Wednesday’s practice, Saints coach Sean Payton talked about the upcoming about the upcoming game with the Bears, injuries and replacing Marques Colston. His comments:
“Today’s injury report: Garrett Hartley (right hip) did not practice, WR Marques Colston (right shoulder) did not practice, S Roman Harper (right ankle) did not practice, WR Lance Moore (groin) was limited, and DT Tom Johnson (left calf) was limited," said Payton.
