benson book interview 2As I readied for my Facebook Live discussion with Kathy Finn, the author of the unauthorized biography of the life of Tom Benson, many questions jammed through my mind, that i wanted to know the answers to and which i suspected, our audience would also.

What qualities did he possess that launched his remarkable success, coming from such a humble background? Given Benson's reported lack of knowledge about football, how did he fit in with the other NFL owners?  

Ever since Tom Benson passed away last week, the interest in Benson the businessman, Benson, the family man, Benson the billionaire, Benson the New Orleans philanthropist, has become of significant interest to many.

Trump has now fired two top FBI officials, including Director, James Comey, to protect himself from Mueller’s Russia investigation.

Overall, John Fortunato has a sixteen point lead over the current acting Sheriff Joe Lopinto, 48-32 with 20 percent undecided. The prior UNO poll revealed Fortunato leading 44 to Lopinto's 37 percent with a 19 point undecided.

matthews landrieu naginWas that a political endorsement for Mitch Landrieu for the position of President of the United States we heard last night coming out of the mouth of MSNBC’s Hardball’s Chris Matthews?

Huh?

Well, let me explain. First, a little history.

finger pointing blame 1 InPixioAs is almost always the case, in the world of politics, whether it is world, national, state or local, once a failure tkes place, the blame game is soon to follow. On Monday, the Louisiana legislative session came to a screeching halt. The Governor initially blasted the House Speaker Barras Taylor, a republican. The Louisiana GOP slammed the governor. Today, Bayoubuzz's Jeff Crouere published hs analysis, citing Edwards as the culprit. Edwards's office sent out its own missive, with extracted portions of media comments in its favor.
