"The Governor and Legislature constantly refer to how can they maintain their purity, or as it is sometimes referred to, their 'tax virginity.' You have to be kidding me. This reminds me of two oversexed teenagers dry humping in a backseat of a car parked behind a levee wondering how far they can go while maintaining their purity or virginity. We are literally at the mercy of buffoons and comedians. While they're humping, our university burns."
— Political consultant, LSU alumnus and Tulane University political science professor James Carville, in a letter to the editor of the LSU Reveille.
