FBI is a deeply-flawed federal agency!

The FBI again is facing heavy criticism for their failure to adequately anticipate the violence that took place in Washington DC last week. Their local office in Virginia had expressed some ‘concerns,”  but the agency failed to assess and predict the level of the mayhem and violence that took place. Blunderings by the FBI are nothing new. Check out the post this week about the terrible tragedy that took place in Louisiana, involving  respected LSU professor.  You can read it now by clicking on the Red Flashing Box above water by Clicking Here.

Coach Nick Saban-The Best There Ever Was!

If you’re a college football fan, it’s time to fess up and call it just like it is. There are some great coaches in college football, but hands-down, Alabama coach Nick Sabin is the best. Numero Uno.  His Crimson Tide team absolutely demolished Ohio State in this past Monday night’s national championship game.  Oh I know it’s tough for LSU fans to except. But he won a national championship when he was in Baton Rouge. I write about Sabin’s success, and I add some personal stories of my own. Check out my new column.

Great Article on Washington Politics!

My law school roommate, Bill Weinberg who lives up in eastern Kentucky, has written a perceptive Op Ed article on the changing nature of US Senate majority leader Mitch McConnell. You will be fascinated to read that Bill’s wife Lois ran against McConnell some years back, and the Weinberg’s have certainly been critical of McConnell in recent years. Bill’s article shows a real understanding of political figures in Washington, and the change in McConnell’s stature. It’s well worth the read. You can review the article now by Clicking Here.

A Jerry Lee Lewis Birthday Celebration!

For those of you who have read my new book, My Louisiana Odyssey, you know that I wrote about rock and roller Jerry Lee Lewis, who was my first client when I started practicing law up in the little town of Ferriday, Louisiana. Jerry lee is 85 now, and slowing down a bit, but still has lots of fans all over the world. Here’s a great tribute to Jerry Lee by a young rock and roller, Jacob Tolliver. I wish I’d been there for the concert.

Cameras in the Courtroom? Why Not!

Should trials in America be televised? Particularly when there is great public interest? This would seem to be a no brainer. Of course they should. But many courts, particularly in the federal system, do not allow cameras in the quart room. The Supreme Court of the United States specifically for bids and he said cameras. What kind of a democratic system is that? Check out my new column and see my thoughts on this important issue. You can read it now by going to the Red Flashing Box above or by Clicking Here.

I always do.  Take a look at my New Year’s column and my thoughts about 2020. You can read it now by going to the Red Flashing Box above or By Clicking Here.
