Clancy, What a perfect tribute. Just a minor correction: By 1979 John had left Gris Gris and formed the Baton Rouge Enterprise, with Rolfe Mccollister. I know this because I was working for Gris Gris during that election. Marsanne Golsby
Georges can make a much more significant contribution to Louisiana by doing this than he ever could as governor. Good for him!
I read multiple news websites every morning on my iPhone but I'm also an automatically renewing subscriber to the Baton Rouge Advocate. But when I look down my block early every morning as I'm reaching for my paper I only see 2 other papers in yards. This is what's happened.
LOL Jeremy! I think you totally had it coming on this one! I do a little work at the capitol now on behalf of clients and your story was the talk of flak-dom. The vote against was running an average of 4 to 2. You bit the hand that feeds! The only difference between me and them is I didn't have my salary as an independent consultant published, and the mention was good for my business. So thanks! You're a good journalist and I'm always happy to help you with a story.
There's a typo in Jeremy Alford's story on state government PR people. The Greenpeace "fish incident" occurred in March 1999, not March 2009. Governor Foster left office in January 2004.
