Quote of the week: David Vitter 

  "For goodness sake, focus on murders, not monuments." — U.S. Sen. David Vitter in an Aug. 12 open letter to Mayor Mitch Landrieu. The two have been feuding openly since Vitter slammed Landrieu over New Orleans' murder rate in a speech to the State Troopers Association. In response to Landrieu's suggestion that Vitter secure more federal funding for police protection, Vitter wrote, "New Orleans' horrendous murder rate is not, primarily, the federal government's responsibility; it's yours," and suggested Landrieu establish a new state troopers' organization in the city "paid for by local revenue and tourism industry pledges."
