"I got called here recently and they got to asking me, 'What do you think about Jindal traveling all the time?' I said, 'Haven't you forgotten the biggest criticism you had of me is that I didn't travel enough?'"
— Former Gov. Mike Foster in an interview with KNOE-TV, the CBS affiliate in Monroe, in response to a question about Gov. Bobby Jindal. Foster, now 84 and living in St. Mary Parish, appointed Jindal to be Secretary of the Department of Health & Hospitals when Jindal was only 24, but he says he has no regrets: "When I met him, I realized two things: One, he was smart, and two, he was honest."
