JAN 23 A day after it was revealed that Saints and Pelicans owner Tom Benson had removed his granddaughter from her top position at the team organizations, she and her brother and mother filed suit against the patriarch, charging that he's lost his mind, Bleacher Report tells us. Of course, the court should take away his empire and give it to them, they say. Wait - who's nuts here?
JAN 23 Blogger Jason Brad Berry brings us up to date on the continuing controversy swirling around the BP claims process and its administrator, Pat Juneau. You can always count on Berry to dig up the deets.
JAN 23 Since nobody else seems to be interested in pitching ideas to fix Louisiana's myriad and complicated fiscal issues, blogger CB Forgotston has come up with some of his own. He's also asking for your ideas.
JAN 23 Somehow Tom Aswell's email address got onto Timmy Teepell's blast list, and we're getting the benefit of it. In this post, the blogger is telling us what ole Timmy has to say about Bobby Jindal stepping into a pile of Faux News fantasy (that was so bad even Faux News apologized). You have to wonder how these people function with such a lax grip on reality.
JAN 23 Here's a map from the Washington Post that shows, with color, where the disasters are and are likely in the United States. We're mostly purple. Guess what color means disaster?
JAN 23 Not content to simply take his licks and get on with his life, Bobby Jindal now has his PAC getting into the fight against
reality the "liberal media" regarding no-go zones in Europe, CNN reports here. Here's an idea: If these places exist, let's see some video. If they exist, let's have an address, a picture, hell, even a drone shot of these infamous, nefarious imaginary locations. Why do we need anybody's "study" to determine if a neighborhood structure exists in England? It's not on the moon. It's in England. Right?
JAN 23 As Bobby Jindal persists in his (delusional?) prep for a presidential campaign, here's what's going on with the front-runners for the GOP nom. This post on MSNBC reports a sit-down between Jeb Bush and Mitt Romney this week in Utah. It repeats the rumors that Romney is considering a run only because he thinks Bush is too weak to beat Hillary. But what about Bobby???
JAN 22 Bobby Jindal (or more likely his buddy Kyle Plotkin) was going for sarcasm in his State of the Union tweet, but what he delivered was a stupid grammatical error that made the Twitter-sphere "insane," the Liberal America blog reports here. His tweet included a quote inside a period and ended with "Your welcome." Our welcome what?
JAN 22 Governors who run for president have to run on their records - and that can be a problem, columnist Stephanie Grace writes in this post. For instance, some might say that our governor, Bobby Jindal, has got a big ole problem if he runs for President on his record in Louisiana. (Ya think?)
JAN 22 The Picayune reports that Tom Benson has removed his granddaughter - who until this week had been the heir apparent for Benson's sports franchise empire - from authority in the family business. Benson laid out his change in plans to the paper, stating that this move was aimed at bringing stability to the organization. Hmmm.
