A new book on the New York Times bestselling list by mathematician and philosopher Nicholas Taleb concludes that politicians often fail because they generally have nothing at risk. There are no costs. They have no skin in the game. That is certainly true with the current Louisiana Legislature.  Letting the Bayou State grind to a halt has no down side for most of them. I look at the problem in my new column now posted.  You can read it by clicking on the Red Flashing Box above or by Clicking Here.

Crawfish Time Down here on the Bayou!

Hey, it’s crawfish time down here in Louisiana. Our friends from outside the state don’t realize how these mudbugs take over our menus for the next several months. I’m planning a big crawfish boil, cooking up several hundred pounds, this weekend right after the St. Patrick’s Day parade in Baton Rouge. You all are welcome to come. Eating crawfish is a way of life down here in the Bayou State. If you’re not from down here, I hope you will have the chance to try them soon. You will be hooked. Do you know that 90% of the crawfish taken in ponds and lakes are kept and sold right here in the state? We just can’t let them go.

The governor in Louisiana says the state is broke, and he legislature just completed a do nothing special session. Financially, a reasonable summation would be that the state is in economic chaos. What to do, what to do?  A good bit of the state revenue is constitutionally dedicated. Hey here’s an idea. Why not call for new constitutional convention Bring Louisiana into the 21st century? This thought is not new. I suggested it back in 1987 when I ran for governor of Louisiana. Take a look at my thoughts as to why it’s necessary that we call for a constitutional convention, and write a new constitution.
