HOW CAN LOUISIANA BECOME A PLAYER IN THE PRESIDENTIAL ELECTION?

Democratic presidential candidates are coming out of the woodwork, what’s apparently others too soon announce. Election season is here, and before you know it, presidential primaries will begin. How relevant is Louisiana in the whole process to pick a candidate? Not relevant at all. But a slight change in the law could put Louisiana in the forefront of picking the next president with all the candidates flocking to the Bayou State.  Take a look at my plan and see what you think. It’s all set out of my new column now posted. Check it out by going to the Red Flashing Box above or by Clicking Here.

Weekend Radio Show Schedule!

We’re close at hand for weekend radio the Common Radio Show, and so much to talk about this weekend. How about the new reports of the cheating going on at Yale University and other major colleges? Educational expert David Dillard will join us to discuss. Also, have you ever thought about walking the Camino Trail in Spain? It’s a religious retreat for many devout religious pilgrims. A new movie is out and we will talk about it. Are you going to watch the Academy Awards?  The Awards show gotten to be quite boring. But we will discuss. So much else, so check your local listings for times and stations and we hopefully will see you on the radio.

Every exhibit Must be Equally Balanced?

Last Thursday, two female activists disrobed inside the Washington National Gallery of Art to protest what they say is a lack of diversity in the artists being featured. One led security on a brief chase before being subdued.  Sounds like a weak protest.  The public, I would think, decides what they will pay to see at an art gallery, a movie theater, or any other entertainment venue.  If the public wants to see art painted by gay, Ecuadorian  midgets, then such a product will draw visitors.  We do not need quotas in Art or any other exhibitions.

Another Race, Another Pile Up!

Are you a NAS Car fan? A wreck-filled running of NASCAR’s Daytona 500 in Florida last week.   There was an accident on pit road, a 21-car crash, 12 cautions and five wrecks in the final 20 laps of regulation. The race was stopped twice for cleanup totaling nearly 40 minutes in the final stretch.  Take a look at the pileup below.  I just could never get into following this sport, wee cars drive round and round endlessly,  and often have pile ups like this.  Just not my thing.  But, hey, whatever turns you on, right?

BLACKFACE, LOUISIANA AND CONFEDERACY OF DUNCES!

The state of Virginia is in a blackface uproar as controversy surrounds both the Governor in the Attorney General who admit to wearing blackface some 35 years ago. Does something in one’s past that happened a long time ago make them unfit to serve in public office today? There’s quite a comparison between Virginia and my home state of Louisiana. Blackface parodies have been going on here for many years. I write about the issue, the concerns, and what should be reasonable in this week’s column. Check it out to see what you think. You can read it now by going to the Red Flashing Box above or by Clicking Here.

We Live in Different Times!

I came across an old Dean Martin tape while cleaning some book shelves.  Wow, it was really a different time back then. Entertainment was not so politically correct, and celebrities from all races openly made fun of each other and their ethnic backgrounds. If something like this were put on today, there would certainly be huge protests I put this video up to show you how we live in completely different times today. Take a look.

GESTAPO TACTICS IN AMERICA?

All over the world, we get news reports of governments barging into people’s home and arresting them in the middle the night. The Middle East, South America, the Far East, few countries seem immune from these Gestapo tactics. And certainly not America, right? Well, not so fast. We saw the jackboots in action this past week when a south Florida resident came under attack in the wee hours the morning. No due process, and certainly no justification. Is the constitution worth anything anymore?  Check out my new column now posted and see what you think.  You can read it now by going to the Red Flashing Box above or by Clicking Here.

Saints Got Robbed!

The Super Bowl was a dud of a game. BORING, including the halftime show. I wish I had gone to the French Quarter parade. Geaux Saints!

MAKE PERFORMANCE MATTER!

 
How do you put a dollar value on the worth of a public official? How about this idea. Shouldn’t receiving any salary increase be based on results?  Should time and work be the only criteria in paying public employees? Why not pay the governor and a cross section of other public officials that directly affect our lives based on a scale of how well they perform and what results they achieve? I have some interesting ideas as to how to do this.  Check out my new column now posted. You can read it by going to the Red Flashing Box above or by Clicking Here.

A NO-CALL FOR THE SAINTS AS WELL AS LOUISIANA VOTERS!

We got robbed” would be an understatement on what happened in the Superdome last week. Yes, the game was taken away from us Saints fans, an outrage over the terrible non-call is rightly deserved. But should such outrage in Louisiana be limited just to football game? What about similar outrage over our quality of life, ranked the worst in the nation. Louisiana is at the low-end of the totem pole on most of the major comparisons with other states. Are we ever going to stand up and holler: “I’m mad as hell and I’m not going to take anymore?” Take a look at my column this week, and see what you think.

GET HEALTHY-DRINK MORE COKE?

Great news coming out of Louisiana from the Pennington Biomedical Research Center here in Baton Rouge. Don’t worry so much about sugar anymore. The whole key to staying healthy is exercise. Or so they say. Two recent studies by the respected research Center conclude that sugar ain’t all that bad. But what may surprise you is just who paid for the study. I’ll keep you guessing.
