If you’re a book publisher like me, and want to sell a lot of books, there’s no better time than during a pandemic. Book sales have been high for months, particularly the big box stores like Walmart, Target, Costco, as well as bookstores nationwide. Some of the titles published by The Lisburn Press have sales that have tripled in recent months.  If you’re stuck inside, what better way to pass time by reading a book.

mob marry 2

There is a mob that wants to destroy our country. They want to change our political and economic systems and move us toward a communist form of government. Part of their attack is to demonize our history and traditions and destroy our monuments and symbols.

While millions of Americans love the country and revere our traditions, the radicals hate America and want to radically transform our nation. They plan on accomplishing their mission by eroding trust in law enforcement and targeting police departments for destruction across the country.

For as far back as I can remember, comparisons have been made between Louisiana’s state capital city and Austin, Texas. In the 1960s the population of both cities was about the same.  Austin and Baton Rouge were the homes of both the centers of state government and the location of each state’s major university. Both cities were laid back and growing at an average southern pace.  So how do they rate today?

Austin has become one of the fastest growing cities in America.  The University of Texas is ranked as one of the top public universities in the nation with an endowment that rivals number one Harvard.  US News and World Report just released their national rankings as the best place in American to live. Their number one ranking?  Austin, Texas. And the icing on the cake came in the recent announcement that Apple will invest over one billion dollars on a new high-tech campus.  Apple will create in Austin 5000 new jobs that will increase to 15,000 employees with an average salary of $150,000. The Texas hub was also just named as on one of the top five places to retire in the U.S.

br call

Did you see the Garth Brooks televised concert at Notre Dame Stadium last week?  Over 85,000 country music fans packed the South Bend football field for one of the largest concerts ever viewed.  And the crowd’s biggest response, hands down, was when Brooks roamed the huge stage singing: “I spent last night in the arms of a girl in Louisiana.”  It was his signature song titled Callin’ Baton Rouge. The crowd went nuts.
