Louisiana folks are so laid back and easy  going. Well, most of the time. But not when they are driving. Speeding, road rage, drunk driving and failure to obey a police driver combine to make Bayou State drivers the worst in the nation. That’s what the national surveys say. Do you agree and what can be done about it? I have a few ideas that you can check out in my new column. You can read it now by going to the Red Flashing Box above, or by Clicking Here.

Enough Pride in Louisiana?


Most Americans are proud of what state they come from. And that is certainly true down in the deepest of the deep southern states. Louisiana is a special place whether you live in the Deep South or are redneck, like me, from north Louisiana. The food, the culture, the music, the great athletes, and the curiosity all come together to make quite a gumbo. But the state is going through a lot of financial problems right now. Here’s the question. Is there enough pride in Louisiana? Can’t we do a better job of cleaning up the state and make the whole process run more effectively? 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.

What a novel-The Donald Trump Election Success Story. Trump must have had the plot all laid out from the beginning. His campaign was a simple one based on the characters and the plot of a best selling novel. And the story line played out, apparently just as Trump had planned. At least, that is my opinion. Take a look at my new column and see what you think. You can read it now by going to the Red Flashing Box above, or by Clicking Here.

Now that the presidential election has come and gone, a number of observers are raising questions about the fairness of the process. Was the mainstream press fair in their election coverage or both candidates? How about the debates, and how the rules arbitrarily bounced out some very qualified candidates.

I review the good, the bad, and the ugly in this past presidential election. You can read it now by going to the Red Flashing Box above, or by Clicking Here.

Message to Airlines!


A musician named Dave Carroll recently had difficulty with United Airlines. Dave spent over 9 months trying to get United to pay for damages caused by baggage handlers to his custom Taylor guitar. During his final exchange with the United Customer Relations Manager, he stated that he was left with no choice other than to create a music video for YouTube exposing their lack of cooperation. The Manager responded: “Good luck with that one, pal.”

So he posted a retaliatory video on YouTube. The video has since received over 6 million hits. United Airlines contacted the musician and attempted settlement in exchange for pulling the video. Naturally his response was: “Good luck with that one, pal.” Taylor Guitars sent the musician 2 new custom guitars in appreciation for the product recognition from the video that has led to a sharp increase in orders.

Meddling in our Elections!


We’ve heard a good bit about voter fraud and rigging the election in the last several months as we move towards the presidential campaign. But what about government agencies directly interfering? Just a few days ago, the director of the FBI, a James Comey, publicly released information about the email controversy with Hillary Clinton. He previously issued a public statement saying that he sold no criminal activity. Now he’s looking at it again. So far so good as well as investigation. But what about the propriety of a government official making statements that could directly influence the coming election? Is this proper? I say not, and so do many other former prosecutors, mostly who are Republican. Take a look at my new column, now posted, to see what you think.

My Magic Hat

While in California I needed to go to the emergency room.  Not wanting to sit there for 4 hours, I put on my Magic Green Hat.  When I went into the E.R., I noticed that 3/4 of the people got up and left.  I guess they decided that they weren’t that sick after all. Cut at least 3 hours off my waiting time.Here’s the hat: Below.


It also works at Dept. of Motor Vehicles. It saved me 5 hours. At the Laundromat, three minutes after entering, I had my choice of any machine, most still running. If you live in Texas, it might cut your wait time at the grocery store. But, don’t try it at McDonald’s. The whole crew ran out the back door and I never did get my order!
