CHRIS Ivory came in and helped save the Saints' season when Pierre Thomas and Reggie Bush were banged up. Put those three in the same backfield and use them in rotation, and the Saints have a pretty good backfield. I'm not saying the Saints need to use a first-round pick on a running back. I'd like to see them add one more quality runner. Ivory has missed lots of playing time while in college and the NFL...

Louisiana Women in Government is a relatively recent phenomena as women all over the United States began to realize their full potentials.
One organization, housed out of Nicholls State University has been showcasing the trailblazers who have carved out a path for women starting or yet to make their marks in the conversation of Louisiana women governmental leadership.
Hoda Kotb was at home in New Orleans.
Kotb showed her enthusiastic flair and candor—both which have made her wildly popular nationally as she “got down” in front of an audience of Louisiana women and some men who gathered on Saturday at the Louisiana Center of Women and Government Hall Of Fame banquet.

I believe Louisiana’s Governor Bobby Jindal will go down into history as the state’s most powerful and artful politician.
That’s not much to expect for the Ivy Leaguer, Rhodes Scholar who headed two major government agencies shortly after his voice changed into adulthood.
While school is out as to whether his government’s trains run on time, few can doubt his political efficacies.
One really doesn’t need much of an excuse to want to see Libyan dictator Muammar Gaddafi blown to kingdom come.
Gaddafi’s regime through acts of terrorism is responsible for the murder of American servicemen and civilians.

With the trend toward sending more and more correspondence via email and with text messaging so popular, fewer people are actually using the old fashioned “snail” mail. Every day more people sign up for online bill paying, forgoing the expensive and time consuming methods of mailing checks to vendors.
One of the most offensive things in politics is when someone pushes a questionable idea and then tries to shield it from legitimate criticism by claiming, "This idea should be above politics." This aptly describes Governor Bobby Jindal's proposal to merge Southern University in New Orleans (SUNO) with the University of New Orleans (UNO).
