Big Radio Show Weekend!

GCN

It’s the countdown until the nationwide congressional Election Day on November 3rd. Will the Republicans take over control of the U.S. Senate? Will Democrats hold their own in races across the country? And of course, underlying all these elections are so many national and international issues. Ebola has made the country forget about open warfare in many parts of the Middle East. We will talk about it all on this weekend’s “Common Sense” radio program.

If you are a country music fan, you certainly know and appreciate the smooth twangs of Clink Back. He’s been a big name in this music field for a number of years. I had the pleasure of hearing Clint in concert and having a nice visit before his performance this past weekend here in Baton Rouge at the L’Auberge Casino and Resort. Quite a guy, so check him out below.

Are We Sinking into the Sea?

imagesFADFVDF

Major cities in the US are sinking and are demanding action to stop the water flow. Boston is hollering that they need federal help, and may end up being the next Venice. Miami and the Everglades are asking for federal dollars. Baltimore and New York are reeling after Hurricane Sandy, and say they may be sinking. Louisiana has been saying the same thing for 30 years, yet little has really been done. What’s the price tag? 50 billion dollars! $100 billion! What on earth can we do about this mess? Are we just going to set back and get washed away? Take a look at my new column now posted. You can read it by going to the Red Flashing Box above, or by Clicking Here.  And check out Randy Newman’s song about Louisiana-They’re Goin’ a Wash Us Away.

Teacher’s Unions Not Happy With Campbell!

imagesasdcdc

My daughter Campbell, who many of you remember as the White House correspondent for NBC news as well as hosting her own show on CNN, is making a valiant effort to raise the standards of teachers throughout New York. The teachers’ unions or not holding back, and fighting her tooth and nail. For her cause, Campbell has raised money from business leaders throughout the state. The teachers unions are attacking her fund raising, rather than focusing on her concerns about their overall ability to teach. This is apparently the only issue the the teachers’ unions can attack her on.  Actually, I find the cartoon rather funny.  Take a look and enjoy.  And you  can check out Campbell’s view on educational reform in a recent speech she gave to the American Enterprise Institute in Washington, D.C.  You can listen or read the transcript by Clicking Here.




My Favorite Time of Year!

IMG_0596

I don’t know about you, but fall is my favorite season of the year. There is nothing as pretty as seeing the leaves change up north and along the East Coast. The colors can really be brilliant. We don’t get much color down out here in the south. So I was fortunate to be up in northern Maine last week, and you can see below the colors coming out in radiant shades. I’m hoping to go up to the North Carolina mountains in a week or two, so as to see the leaves change up there also. I’ll keep you posted.  To see the brilliant color of leaves, Click Here.
