Quote of the Week 

  "I'm writing from Louisiana with hope that our governor, Bobby Jindal, might see this letter. We haven't seen much of Jindal back home. First, he spent months jetting around the country campaigning for other politicians. Now, he's back on the road promoting his book and raising money. Tonight, he's due in New York City for a high-dollar fundraiser. Clearly, personal political aspirations are more important to him than the reality we face here in Louisiana. Our people are facing the largest budget deficits in recent memory — a crisis measured in the billions, not just the hundreds of millions." — State Rep. Damon Baldone, D-Houma, in a Dec. 10 letter to the New York Daily News. Jindal was in New York for a fundraiser. Kyle Plotkin, the governor's spokesman, replied, "It's short sighted for a state representative to be bad-mouthing Louisiana to New Yorkers for partisan political purposes."
