What’s going on in my home state of Louisiana and across the nation? A crime wave of violence from coast to coast. Political leaders in both parties who is scream for attention, but offer a few solutions. We as Americans deserve better. Much better! I take on the thorny subject in my new column now posted. Where is America’s leadership? And what can you and as average citizens do about it? You can read my column now by going to the Red Flashing Box above or by Clicking Here.

The Passing of my friend Mickey Gilley!

I would be remiss not to comment on the passing of my longtime friend Mickey Gilley. He was one of my first clients when I started my law practice in the small town of Ferriday in Northeast Louisiana. Mickey was a  country music star whose Texas nightclub served as the inspiration for the 1980 film Urban Cowboy, died in Branson, Mo. He was 86 and had just come off of the road, his favorite place, having played ten shows in April,” according to Farnum’s statement. “He passed peacefully with his family and close friends by his side.”

When I began my career in Louisiana politics, Nickie performed at several fundraisers in my behalf. We stayed in touch over many years, and I considered him a special friend.  Across his career as a singer, Mickey garnered 17 No. 1 singles between the late 1960s and 1980s, including his 1974 cover of “Room Full of Roses.” His soulful renditions of early rock and roll hits and soul songs cemented him as a country artist who was able to cross genres. Mickey’s family included artist Jerry Lee Lewis and televangelist Jimmy Swaggart as cousins.  God Bless Mickey Gilley.

A Glue-In by Actor James Cromwell

I’m sure you recognize actor James Cromwell. He’s played major character actors in any number of movies. In the popular series the crown, he played Prince Philip and did an excellent job. Well now he’s created a really sticky situation.  Incensed by the “senseless upcharge” at Starbucks for nondairy milk, the “Succession” and “Babe” actor where he serves as an honorary director, staged a protest Tuesday at a Midtown Manhattan location of the coffee chain. If anyone wanted him to leave, they were out of luck as he — along with another protester — superglued his hand to the counter in what can best be described as a “glue-in.” PETA live-streamed the protest, which quickly began trending on social media, where the stunt was met with a menagerie of praise and (mostly “Babe”) jokes.

Well like it or not, I’m moving on up. I’m talking about age. Eighty two years old this week. In the past, I would have assumed that this is really old. Not so says me. Yes, a lot of water has pasted under the bridge, but I’m convinced I still have a good ways to go. We all have concerns about mortality, and I’m surely no different. Well, you play the cards you are delt, and make the most of it. I write about all these concerns in my new column now posted.

Mega country music singing star Garth Brooks is certainly a national treasure. But it’s hard to top the thousands of fans that packed LSU tiger stadium this past Saturday night. It was a Garth Brooks weekend with diehard fans traveling from hundreds of miles just to see the king of country music. He wasn’t always so popular. I have a personal story to tell about the first time I heard Garth Brooks, and about being the only person to pay attention to her singing. It’s a special story for me, and I want to share it with you. You can read it now by going to the Red Flashing Box above or by Clicking Here.
