One of Louisiana top business voices, President and CEO of Louisiana Association of Business and Industry (LABI), Stephen Waguespack, has written an interesting and, I believe, controversial column, today involving tomorrow’s elections, and which specifically addresses the upcoming U.S. Senate race.

I’m with Mary!
I am taking the unusual step – the first time in Fax-Net’s 16-year history, of endorsing a candidate for political office in this publication.
In doing so, I realize many Fax-Net subscribers will likely disagree. That’s okay. It is how democracy works. Some may not renew their subscription. That’s fine, too. I feel that strongly about this election, and I respect your views as I hope you do mine.

I will Repeal and Replace Obamacare?
“I will pull it out by its roots”
Both Republican candidates for the Louisiana US Senate seat, Congressman Dr. Bill Cassidy and Lt.

If you've been anywhere near the Internet the past few weeks, you've seen this cool-dude-of-a-man in an online commerical (and I think TV too) letting us know that Mary Landrieu votes for President Obama 97% of the time.
When you watch tonight’s Divisional battle between two struggling NFL teams, the Carolina Panthers and the New Orleans Saints, you might want to consider the word “cheap”.
