Therefore, we support measures that maintain the independence of Louisiana schools from the federal government. We support keeping all Louisiana education dollars in Louisiana […]

Recently my posting has started dropping off because of some nasty fatigue issues that seemed to come out of nowhere. (Hopefully you haven’t noticed the lull too much, as I have quite a few pieces I’m working on at any given time, and researching others.) Sometimes a recent event or flash of insight drives me […]

Bobby Jindal and his creationist allies have finally got it all figured out! Dinosaurs did exist, and they still do! You’ve heard of Nessie, aka the Loch Ness Monster?
