Re: “Eric Granderson: An Easy Choice

To the first poster Aaa, I ask, HUH? Since when is one staffer responsible for the city's problems of the last 30 years? Possibly without him (and others like him) the city would be in even WORSE shape than what it is now.

Re: “Timing and Turnout

It may indeed inspire a greater turnout if along with the GOP primary, but you're talking Orleans Parish. I am for the most expedient election, but I am also for the best across-the-board turnout. I know the great battery of Head supporters, but regardless or her office's "expediency" she was shown to be a person with an unfortunate opinion of the very constituents she is supposed to serve (remember the email scandal). No doubt she finds a lot of support, think about it, many New Orleans citizens have been dying for a long time for that "tell like it is", damn the political correctness spokesperson, and her being a woman makes it easier for her. I say good for you all. But I think there was a reason for the across-the-board adoration and respect of Councilman Fielkow, and it wasn' t for those earlier said qualities.

Re: “Our Endorsements

"I didn't know Gambit was this liberal?" I didn't Gambit's readers were this conservative. I would be the first to admit Richmond's missteps and shortcommings. But aside from that, what I'm hearing throughout this political season is this convenient pigeonholing of Cedric and almost every local black politician to the likes of Bill Jefferson, Ray Nagin et al. Lousiana's history of political corruption if nothing else has been egalitarian. David Vitter is our current senator for goodness sake! Why isn't anyone comparing him to the likes of Judge Bodenheimer, Jim Brown, and of course the granddaddy of them all Edwin Edwards

Re: “Our Endorsements

"I didn't think Gambit was this liberal"? I didn't know Gambit's readers were that conservative. I would be the first to admit Richmond has had some serious missteps, but aside from him, what I'm hearing throughout this political season, it seems like more people are using the Bill Jeffersons, Nagins and Oliver Thomas's of the world to pigeonhole almost every black elected official as tainted. Now of course no one is actually saying that, but when the analogies are stated no one ever mentions the Judge Bodenheimers, the Jim Browns, and of course the granddaddy of them all Edwin Edwards. Louisiana's political corruption if nothing else has been race-neutral.
