One Louisiana-based organization not very pleased with Gov. Jindal's budget is the Louisiana Budget Project.

When referring to how Peyton's been throwing the ball, Kravkirtz used the phrase "noodle arm."
Peyton said he's not jealolus of his younger brother, Eli, who has two Super Bowls compared to his one.
hidden in the din of tea-party-flavor-of-the-week rick santorum’s meaningless so-called victories in this week’s gop political caucuses was the real winner: the voters who stayed away in record numbers and refused to vote for any of these clowns.
