Yesterday, this site asked if anybody knows that Louisiana is in the middle of a Treasurer’s race. In part one of an ongoing interview with Southern Media and Opinion Research, its President Bernie Pinsonat said for various reasons he finds it difficult to believe any of the polls so far.
In general, there are four candidates who have chances to be in the runoff, three Republicans and one Democrat. The three republicans are Neil Riser, John Schroder, Angele Davis. The sole Democrat with any chance is Derrick Edwards.

For most of their 50 years, the New Orleans Saints have been a losing franchise. It took 20 years for the team to make the playoffs and other another 13 years to secure the first playoff victory. It took a total of 42 years for the team to finally win the Super Bowl.
In my world, it is repugnant to abuse the flag or not stand up during the National Anthem. This country can withstand football players and sports figures protests in this way, but, I am still repulsed by it.
Ever since Friday night's Alabama speech, Donald Trump has had plenty to say about the American Flag, the National Anthem and the NFL disrespecting those great American symbols.
In fact, as of this writing, he has tweeted or retweeted about the issue 19 times. During that same period, not a single tweet about the likes of Puerto Rico which is an American territory and whose citizens are American citizens.
If you like your New Orleans Politics with a twist of humor, going into directions that even a crack-meteroligist can’t forecast, then you need to join Jeff Crouere and me at our next Politics with a Punch, this Thursday night.
Does anybody know there's a treasurer's race here in Louisiana to replace the last-elected official in that office, now US Senator, John Kennedy?
Yep. There is one, there is. And for the most part, right now, it's somewhat of a secret, not that the candidates are keeping it so, as of now.
Brees had it right: Anthem is a time for unity, not protest!
On Thursday, I got a call from Doug Mouton, an old friend who is sports director of WWL-TV, asking if I would appear on the station’s popular “Fourth Down on Four” broadcast on Sundays after Saints games. I couldn’t turn him down because Doug’s been a friend since I came to the Saints at a time he was laboring at the bottom of the TV sports spectrum as a cameraman. Plus, a little visibility helps sell books as well as infusing some credibility into my website, speaking engagements and family discussions.

Long before he took an oath of office to serve first in the Louisiana Legislature and later in the U.S. Senate, Bill Cassidy took the Hippocratic Oath.
But one would never know that from the abomination called the Cassidy-Graham Bill that, if passed would replace the Affordable Care Act, more commonly known as Obamacare.
President Donald Trump’s irresistible impulse to take on everyone, and anyone, over anything, consequential or not, is a detriment to Republican values and leads to the inescapable question of whether Trumpism needs Trump, any longer, to advance its mission.
The Gambit Weekly, always a desired endorsement, has chosen LaToya Cantrell as its preferred candidate for the upcoming New Orleans mayor.
The Gambit Weekly, always a desired endorsement, has chosen LaToya Cantrell as its preferred candidate for the upcoming New Orleans mayor.In particular, the Gambit said, “Every one of those is a make-or-break challenge. New Orleans cannot afford a mayor who faces a learning curve. Our next mayor will have to hit the ground running on Day One. We think the best person to do that is someone who has already dealt with those issues extensively, first-hand, from the ground-up as a neighborhood leader and as a proven coalition builder at City Hall. LaToya Cantrell is the only mayoral candidate who has done that — and she continues to do it every day, while the others merely talk about it. That’s the critical difference between Cantrell and her opponents.
Is Donald going dotard or self-destructive?
