Quote of the week: Garrett Epps 

  "Louisiana's present governor, Bobby Jindal, entered office as a capable administrator and seems determined to leave it as an amateurish salesman. ... Ambition can do strange things to even a powerful intellect. Jindal, now one of the least-popular governors in the country, seems a bit like Captain Ahab in Herman Melville's Moby Dick. Obsessed with tracking the White Whale, Ahab smashes the quadrant he needs to navigate. 'Old man of oceans!' muses his first mate, Starbuck. 'Of all this fiery life of thine, what will at length remain but one little heap of  ashes!'" — Garrett Epps in The Atlantic.
