Bennett was the first HANO police officer killed in the line of duty in New Orleans, a city that has had public housing developments since 1941.

What happened to the Jindal camapign fundraising picture with his standing in a church, with his back partially to us?
Yesterday, Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal sent me (and perhaps you) an email fundraising blast announcing that he and his wife Supriya, continue to think and pray “about whether to run for President. We'll make a final decision sometime in June, once our legislative session is over here in Louisiana”.
