As we wade through the traditional Election Day Eve flooding to celebrate our right to swim to a voting booth, let's look back at the week before we finally, finally reached the presidential election. (If you missed some Halloween-y stuff, check last week's bonus edition.)

Y@ Speak: the deadline to register to vote in Louisiana is Oct. 11

Posted By on Mon, Oct 10, 2016 at 7:41 PM

In this week's edition of an election cycle in which candy must clarify its positions on refugees and sexual assault: Louisiana officials denounce Trump's comments (but not Trump) and we watched some "debates." Meanwhile: LSU thought it could take on a hurricane, and Mike Yenni won't step down despite many calls to do so after inappropriate and likely illegal sexual behavior. Sounds familiar!

Y@ Speak: after the flood

Posted By on Mon, Aug 22, 2016 at 6:35 PM

Y@ Speak: "the sky's the limit"
