LOUISIANA NOT IN THE RUNNING FOR AMAZON LOCATION!

Just about every state in the nation is chomping at the bits to land the new Amazon second headquarters location. And for good reason. It means some 50,000 new jobs, and a $5 billion dollar investment in the state with the new location ends up. But how much cost does a state have to pay it to win over Amazon, and is it all really worth it? And what kind of a chance did Louisiana have in the first place? I explore all these questions in my new column now posted. You can read it now by going to the Red Flashing Box above, or by Clicking Here.




Weekend Radio Schedule!

A whole lot to talk about this weekend on our nationally syndicated radio program. Abraham Lincoln’s birthday (Just how great a president was he?), the success of Mardi Gras in New Orleans, and we will talk with Lauren A. Wright, Ph.D.,  a political analyst and Lecturer in Politics and Public Affairs at Princeton University, about the growth of the MeToo women’s movement.  Dr. ArLyne Diamond, President of Diamond Associates, will discuss this same important issue. So join us for a full packed program. Check local listings for times and stations. We will see you on the radio.




Valentine’s Day Choices!

On Valentine’s Day, you had two choices depending on what side of the political spectrum you were on.  Which one  would you choose?




Mardi Gras in New Orleans!

What a Mardi Gras season it was this year. The weather was perfect, the crowds were great, no serious crime problems. You can understand now why the New York Times named New Orleans as the number one “must see” destination in the world for 2018. The highlight for us was going to the Endymion Ball, and seeing Rod Stewart perform. Even an old guy like me was able to stay up in the  early morning hours. And then it all came to an end on Mardi Tuesday.  Fat Tuesday we call it.  Tuesday evening at the stroke of midnight. You can also see the mess that had to be cleaned up below. If you’ve never been to Mardi Gras, put on your list for 2019.




Campbell on Facebook changes!

Daughter Campbell has been actively involved in making changes that Facebook is making to boost the quality of news content will help local publishers but significantly hurt some others. The resulting experiments, which are still ongoing, could ultimately cause some to re-consider working with the company altogether, said Campbell Brown, the company’s head of news partnerships. “If you’re a publisher who feels Facebook isn’t good for your business, you shouldn’t be on Facebook,” Brown told an audience at the Code Media conference in Los Angeles.  See her interview at the conference below.

NATIONAL MILITARY PARADE NEEDED!

Everybody loves a parade. Particularly if you live down here in my home state of Louisiana. Pres. Trump has stirred up a hornets nest over his suggestion that the country hold a National military parade one day each year, possibly on November 11. A good pick, because this year, November 11 is the 100th anniversary of the ending of World War I. The national media is roasting Pres. Trump over the parade idea saying it’s quite a waste of money. I don’t agree. Take a look at 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.
