Re: “What to do with New Orleans’ Confederate monuments

The logical conclusion of Hizzoner's line of thinking is the wholesale renaming of neighborhoods, streets, and institutions. The history of NOLA is the history of our country. We can't undo it. It's an absurd result from a misguided movement.

Slavery is an abomination. But it happened. The oppressed have a voice, but not the only one in the discourse of history.

Re: “Graves a-Twitter over levee board suit

If Barry is to be believed that the administration knew about this coming suit in December, no one should be surprised that Jindal waited until it became public to register his disagreement. Same thing happened with the riverfront development bill. He knew about it well in advance, said nothing, and waited until it was a law to scuttle it. Cowardly grandstanding.

It's fine and well that the federal government share financial and moral responsibility for the current state of the coast. It's also important that Louisiana receive its fair share of royalties so we can take more responsibility for coastal protection. But just as guilty "Big Oil" is the state itself, which turned itself out like a prostitute. The trauma remains evident today and gets worse every year. If Jindal will not stand up to them even now, after all these years of the state being violated, then someone else should.

I'll cast my lot with John Barry and Gladstone Jones over Bobby Jindal.

Re: “Reactions to Gov. Bobby's Jindal's tax overhaul proposal

"More details should be forthcoming in March..."


Regardless of what side of this debate you occupy, it is funny reading that someone expects "details" from Jindal or his team.

Re: “Light Passenger Rail for New Orleans?

I would suggest that any discussion of commuter rail in SE LA needs to start with St. Tammany Parish. The ever growing push to develop Covington and Mandeville means more pressure on aged infrastructure, and more ways for the Causeway Commission to justify its existence and the money it receives/spends. Light/commuter rail to Metairie and downtown makes too much sense not to explore.
