Here we go again. The second and third largest bank collapses in America took place last week. The banks were negligent in their lending practices, and did not have enough reserves in place. But why worry about it. After all, the federal government is there to bail them out, like they always seem to do. These banks are supposedly too big to fail, yet when they do, they are the first in line to ask for a government bail out. Billions of dollars paid by, guess who? You and me. I write about poor bank practices and the poor government regulation in my new column now posted. You can read it by going to the Red Flashing Box above or by Clicking Here.

It’s been 55 years since one of the great American war tragedies took place. It continues to be a stain on America’s image of being honorable and not being vindictive in the time of war. It was the My Lia massacre, and a tragedy of which America should not be proud. But like so often when tragedies happen, some special person rise to the occasion and put a stop to wrongdoing. Such a hero was Colonel Hugh Thompson from Lafayette. I write about his bravery in this week’s column. You can read it now by going to the Red Flashing Box above or by Clicking Here.

Good Stories bout Louisiana!

Jim Brown, former Louisiana Secretary of State, Insurance Commissioner and State Senator makes a return visit to the podcast and for good reason. He always has a lot of stories to tell. Brown joins Errol Laborde, Executive Editor of Louisiana Life, along with podcast producer Kelly Massicot to tell tales from his latest book, “My Louisiana Odyssey: A Memoir,” including a late night phone call from Bill Clinton and flying with Edwin Edwards. Oh yes, we will also hear about visiting a saint’s relic and why.

Recent reports list Louisiana as one of the top gambling spots worldwide. And when it comes to choices of how you gamble, you just cannot find a state or country with  so many options. Yes, there are big casinos in other locations, but no one has the wide variety of various ways to gamble.  You might be surprised at the list I have compiled. All this information is found in my new column now posted. To read it, go to the Red Flashing Box above or Click Here

FBI fall short and World Trade bombing investigation.

Can’t we just make it one more day without some new scandal brewing inside the FBI?  Check out this headline of this week’s New York post: ” 30 years ago, the FBI might have had its biggest bomb: the World Trade Center attack.  The story went on to say:

Thirty years ago Sunday, the largest terrorist attack then in American history occurred when a 1,200-pound bomb exploded beneath the World Trade Center in New York City.It was sheer luck that the explosion did not topple the entire skyscraper and kill thousands of people.  Politicians solemnly marked the anniversary, but dignitaries made no mention of the FBI’s role in that disaster.”  Read on to see the bubbling, and how ineffective the FBI was in the whole terrible mess.
