Last week, a prominent national reporter spoke with me about a paper I’m working on for one of my law school classes. I’d asked for his help because I knew he was an expert in the subject, and thankfully, he took the time to answer my questions. At the tail end of our conversation, he asked me about the story I’d helped to break about Bill Cassidy’s work with LSU. He was curious, he said, because he’d actually seen the same documents that I posted a few weeks before I had. He thought it was an important story, but he couldn’t find anyone interested in publishing it, which, he said, was frustrating.
Is the Bill Cassidy LSU double-billing controversy jigged or rigged?
Is the "jigged-up" Bill Cassidy LSU double-pay controversy over, dead and gone, as at least one conservative commentator claims? Or, has a just-released LSU audit of the "scandal" that arose during the last moments of the very hotly contested election between former US Senator Mary Landrieu and then US Rreepsentative Cassidy, been rigged due to powerful influences? Apparently, according to the public sentiments of the two bloggers who broke the story, Lamar White Jr. and Jason Berry, the audit is worthless.
The staging of an event at Louisiana State University Baton Rouge’s Pete Maravich Assembly Center has raised the question about whether events at state facilities ought to be censored over free speech concerns of its sponsors, and is worth some exploration.
Once again, Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal, in his quest to become president of the United States, has made a statement expecting the world to simply accept the truth of his assertion simply because the statement is his.

After claiming the No. 6 spot in the first ranking of schools by the College Football Playoff committee, the Alabama Crimson Tide will next travel to Baton Rouge to take on the LSU Tigers on November 8. LSU has also claimed a spot among the Top 25 schools, ranking at No. 19, and the team will also experience a bye in Week 10 of the season. Six more rankings will be announced through December 7, but the November 8 meeting between the two SEC West teams has already garnered high ticket prices on the secondary market.
U.S. Senator Mary Landrieu is in the news again for the wrong reason. This time, it is not a controversy about her residency or her campaign flights, but her misguided behavior at the LSU-Mississippi State game last Saturday. Sadly, the Senator decided to participate in a keg stand by pouring beer into the mouth of a kid. Fortunately, the young man was not an underage drinker, but many of those at the keg stand may have been under the age of 21.
Revelation at the Legislature today! (we know, too sad to watch most days, so what’s the point?)
Enjoyable quote here regarding two unassailable totems here in the gret stet.
Louisiana legislature: Higher education, LSU plan at risk?
Can Louisiana pay for higher education? Are states getting out of paying for higher education, and will Louisiana follow this course?
There are certain things you don’t forget. Where you were on 9/11, or when President John Kennedy was shot. Down here in the Bayou State, add to those special dates Halloween night 54 years ago when Billy Cannon made football history with his 87 yard run to beat Ole Miss and keep the Tigers undefeated. His story is the rise and fall, than the rise again by LSU’s all time sports hero. And guess what? I played a minor role in what became Billy’s personal nightmare and fall from grace.
Congrats to Charlie Agostino and the wonderful work being performed at the Louisiana Business and Technology Center for their latest achievements.
