Louisiana Governor Tired of Us Hyphenated-Americans!

imageszdfvdfvf

Are you a hyphenated-American? I sure am. Like most folks throughout our country today, I’m a proud U.S. citizen, but I also take great pride in my heritage, which in my case happens to be Scottish. But a presidential wannabe and Governor of Louisiana, Bobby Jindal, says enough of all this traditional legacy and cultural pride. Jindal says forget where you came from, and then ignore your ancestry. No more Italian-Americans, Scottish-Americans, Africans-Americans, Irish-Americans, and the like. Everybody’s cookie cutter and one big dull mix according to Jindal. Man, how I disagree. Check out my new column now posted.

Why No Presidential Primary in La.?

Louisiana is facing a $1.6 billion deficit with a governor most believe will run for president—and no money budgeted for a presidential primary. By law, the Governor has to include some $3.5 million to hold the presidential primary….so what gives? Below is a story that quotes me extensively that appeared on Shreveport television station KTBS. I set out just why the Governor may not want to have a primary. Take a look.

OFTEN, LITTLE CONCERN FOR JUSTICE IN LOUISIANA!

imagesvcfvzvzv

 Some are calling it “prosecutors gone wild.” For some reason, there has been a major increase in the charges of prosecutorial misconduct, both in Louisiana and throughout the rest of the country. A day does not go by in recent weeks when some terrible report is released that documents how innocent victims and accused of crimes they did not commit. And in many cases, the prosecutors hid evidence that might clear them. So what’s up? Check out my new column now posted about this troubling and chilling miscarriage of justice.

Radio Program Schedule!

Radio Show Weekend picks up where I, unfortunately, left off last week. You see, a cold came on and my voice just left me. So we reluctantly had to play a re-run of “the Best Of.” A good show, but I like to keep it current. So we will begin by reviewing a busy week of news with all the presidential wannabes. Then we will pick up with Civil War historian William C. Davis to discuss his dual biography of Ulysses S. Grant and Robert E. Lee, “Crucible of Command.” Quite timely at the 150th anniversary of the ending of the Civil War. See full information listed for last week’s program.

We Lost a Friend in Percy Sledge!

IMG_0108 (1)

Soul Singer Percy Sledge,  who died this week, was  my good friend for over 50 years. He was  sometimes called the King of Slow Soul, was a sentimental crooner and one of the South’s first soul stars, having risen to fame from jobs picking cotton and working as a hospital orderly while performing at colleges and clubs on the weekends.

“I was singing every style of music: the Beatles, Elvis Presley, James Brown, Wilson Pickett, Motown, Sam Cooke, the Platters,” Mr. Sledge said. “When a Man Loves a Woman” was his first recording for Atlantic Records, after a patient at the hospital introduced him to the record producer Quin Ivy. It reached No. 1 on the pop charts in 1966 and sold more than a million copies, becoming the label’s first gold record.  Check it out below. I’m sure Percy is singin’ for the Good Lord right now.
