Prep the Emmy campaign now! There’s no way around it, Donald Trump gives good T.V., providing a clue as to his next paid gig when his freebie presidency schtick is over. Colbert is going to be in real trouble. Consider Thursday’s planned-spontaneous press conference with Kanye West in the Oval Office as the pilot. It was better than Boffo!

There’s a bevy of fun, entertaining, guests who can be on the new show. Mitch McConnell is gifted at stand-up. Book Paul Ryan for the puppet show. Even Susan Collins can do a “Dear Susan,” segment and answer questions from audience members suffering from nervous afflictions while Lindsey leads the band.

New Orleans Saints running back Alvin Kamara is a legitimate star. He has plenty of talent and should be a great contributor for the team for many years to come. Unfortunately, he has decided to enter the world of politics. After the Saints gameon Mondaynight, Kamara donned a Colin Kaepernick San Francisco 49ers jersey. He also wore a “Make Africa Home Again” red hat, an apparent imitation of Donald Trump’s “Make America Great Again” hat.

Louisiana emergency personnel are deploying to Florida to help with Hurricane Michael support missions. The Governor’s Office of Homeland Security and Emergency Preparedness (GOHSEP) is coordinating the assistance through the Emergency Management Assistance Compact (EMAC) system.  EMAC offers assistance during governor-declared states of emergency or disasters through a responsive, straightforward system that allows states to send personnel, equipment, and commodities to assist with response and recovery efforts in other states.

Those Liverpool Legends, the Beatles, will be performing in Jefferson Parish come January 2019.

Those wanting to take a memory tour of the giddiness of I want to hold your hand, the revolutions of Sgt. Pepper, the cries from My Guitar Gently Weeps, need only wait until this Monday, October 15.

So get your weejuns, your pinstripes, your tie dyes your meditation garbs ready.

Brees’ story must include the man who drafted him

 
On Monday night, if the football gods are cooperative, Saints’ QB Drew Brees will pass Peyton Manning and become the all-time passing yards leader in NFL history.The Monday Night Football crew, as well as the Pro Football Hall of Fame, are primed and ready with all the in-game stoppages, mini-tributes and historical balloons they can drop on America to celebrate a major milestone in league history. But you can bet that none of those balloons will tell the story of the man who drafted Brees out of Purdue and gave him the platform to complete his first passing yards on his way to the NFL record.

The biggest whodunit in Washington returns to the Mueller probe after a respite consisting of recriminations over Supreme Court nominee, Brett M. Kavanaugh. Senators Susan Collins, Jeff Flake, and Joe Manchin will be remembered, in particular, for their roles in placing Kavanaugh on a court that’s predicted to cost lives by rolling back environmental protection, workplace safety, and reproductive health.

At the time of this writing, we less than one hour away from US Senator Susan Collins of Maine telling us that she has decided to back Judge Kavanaugh which will tilt the Supreme Court to the right, most likely for the balance of my life time.

There is a sense of desperation in the halls of the Capitol for many Democrats. A thick blue cloud has fallen upon their hopes, choking them, possibly for decades to come.  The time for praying is over. It's time to pack up the rights for which they have fought and pack them up, for now. The bright days ahead for them will need to see another moment.

I have been silent on the issue as to whether I believe he should be disqualified on the basis of his politics. Despite what he claims in the Wall Street Journal last night when he said he will be independent, his behavior of the past few weeks and shown anything but. Susan Collins might cite his claims as a reason for her support, but, if she does, not many will believe her.

The U.S. economy is the strongest in the world and it shows no signs of slowing down. Today, another incredible economic report was released as the September unemployment rate dropped to 3.7%, the lowest since 1969. Among Hispanics and Latinos, the unemployment rate was only 4.5%, the all-time lowest level in history, while among African Americans, the unemployment rate was 6.0%, near the record low.

Not only are people finding work, but wages are increasing. In September, salaries were raised an average of 2.8%, while the typical work week remained steady at 34.5 hours.

Here we go again with meddling federal judges. The 5th U.S Circuit Court of Appeals came down hard on Louisiana charter schools last week. Charter schools, that by definition are independent with major input from parents, now will have to bargain with teachers’ unions. The 5th Circuit is well known for questionable opinions that are often overturned by the U.S. Supreme Court.  Hopefully, this dubious decision will receive the same treatment.

After several weeks of seeing President Trump’s Supreme Court nominee abused by Democrats, grassroots Republicans are furious. Judge Brett Kavanaugh has been accused of gang rape, exposure, groping, sexual harassment, drunkenness, rowdiness and uncontrollable anger.
