mannWhat might Bobby Jindal, a sitting governor, still with power over affairs of Louisiana do, should the US Supreme Court rule in favor of gay marriages this summer?

LSU communications professor, blogger and columnist for the Times Picayune posits an interesting point of view today on his blog and TP column.
