How About My 81st Birthday?

The day of my weekly column is posted this week, May 6, is my 81st birthday. Yes I’m getting older, but at least I’m around, still alive, and taking up a storm. I’m 81, still on the run, and having fun. It’s been a full and satisfying 81 years. Sure there were highs and lows, but all in all I wouldn’t change much. Or maybe a thing or two. I write about being 81 in my new column that is now posted. You can read it by going to the Red Flashing Box above or by Clicking Here.




Happy Mother’s Day Mother!

A special day over the weekend remembering our mothers.  My mother, Helen May Gentry Brown, would’ve been 104. She lived till she was 93, and really led a full life.  On the day she passed away, she talked to all three of her children, attended her bridge club and her financial group. I was blessed and that I spent the last few hours of her life with her.  I regret not spending more time with her in her later years. She was an inspiration, and  always encouraged me in any endeavor I undertook. I sure miss her. Happy Mother’s Day Mom.

Long Life of Books!

I find it  pleasant surprise now and then when older books that have been published by The Lisburn Press turn up. A friend of mine was checking out a flea market over theLafayette  area recently, and look what he found. My first book, printed back in 2005, is still making the rounds.  It’s not selling in the large volume that I experienced in the first few years after publication. But one turns up every now and then.  Nice to see such books are still circulating.

IS THERE ELECTION FRAUD IN LOUISIANA?

 

The Louisiana legislature is considering a large number of new laws that supposedly bring more integrity to the election process. The same effort is being made in states across the country. Most of this comes from the allegations of election fraud in the past presidential election, espoused with a little proof, by then president Donald Trump.  So are these laws really needed? I know something about how to present system works.  I wrote the present Louisiana election code back when I service Secretary of State in the 1980s. I have some thoughts on election fraud in the Bayou State. You could read my views now by going to the Red Flashing Box above or by Clicking Here.
