Painful loss will become Saints’ Laettner moment
The New Orleans Saints are stepping up a notch tomorrow against the Minnesota Vikings in the NFC playoff as they take on the 2nd seed team at the Vikes home field. Last week, the Saints played the Carolina Panthers who they had beaten twice during the season and they were playing at home in the Superdome. They were also healthier.

According to radio and TV talk show host Eric Asher, the Saints have a good chance of winning their first playoff game since 2013.

The only problem is, you can’t count on a disaster occurring every five years or so to cover up mistakes made in governing.
New Orleans proceeds with its infrastructure rebuild after the hurricane disasters of 2005. Given $2.4 billion to accomplish this, about a sixth of that should commence this year, albeit on a pace that would see the last of it completed just before two decades have passed since Hurricane Katrina struck.

There was little question and little doubt the last time the Saints made it to the Super Bowl. Our local heroes went through the 2009 season like a buzz saw, winning their first 13 games and clinching the NFC top seed before the partridge flew into the pear tree. Oh, they had close wins at St. Louis, Washington and Atlanta, and, yes, they lost the last three meaningless games in a strategic move to rest the starters for the playoffs. But there was little doubt the Saints could and would win the Super Bowl.

Republican Louisiana Attorney General Jeff Landry failed in his first bid to stop Orleans Parish Criminal Court Judges from hearing the controversial New Orleans city council credit card case against incoming Mayor, LaToya Cantrell.
Facing a political party adversary, who happens to be an ambitious politician, hoping to be the next Louisiana governor, is not the way that New Orleans Mayor-elect, LaToya Cantrell, wants to spend the next six month as she pieces together her transition team and ultimately her city government staff-- until she gets sworn in as New Orleans Mayor, May 2017.
There is a cloud hanging over the head of the New Orleans Mayor-Elect LaToya Cantrell. In the campaign, she was criticized for her questionable and frequent use of a city credit card. In total, Cantrell spent $107,000 on her city-issued credit card since 2013. This was the highest total among the seven New Orleans city council members. Of that amount, Cantrell only reimbursed the city $9,000 for expenses that were deemed personal in nature. Even worse, approximately $4,000 was repaid right before she qualified for the Mayor’s race.
