Big Challenges for New LSU President!

What happens to a major state university that has fallen from grace, is dramatically underfunded, and has plummeted in national rankings of first-rate colleges throughout the country? You bring in new leadership don’t you?  That’s what my home state university, LSU, has done as it tries to recoup, and re-obtain the national standing it held some 50 years ago. But it’s going to be a long climb up.  Just what happened to the university  that was one called the “Pride of the South?”  And how does it get back in the mix of first-rate landmarks of higher education?  That’s the new challenge for incoming President Dr. William Tate.  And as you can well imagine, I’m quite free with my advice.  So check out my new column on what steps he should take to get LSU to pull himself up by the bootstraps. You can read it now by going to the Flashing Red Box above, or by Clicking Here.




Love to Dance!

I guess, as I look back over my 81 years, I would pursue many more hobbies and fun activities. One would be dancing more. I wish I were a better dancer, and always wanted to take some dancing lessons. Never did, but enjoyed seeing those great performers in the past who danced so well. Take a look at the video below to the music of Dancing on the Ceiling.

How About My 81st Birthday?

The day of my weekly column is posted this week, May 6, is my 81st birthday. Yes I’m getting older, but at least I’m around, still alive, and taking up a storm. I’m 81, still on the run, and having fun. It’s been a full and satisfying 81 years. Sure there were highs and lows, but all in all I wouldn’t change much. Or maybe a thing or two. I write about being 81 in my new column that is now posted. You can read it by going to the Red Flashing Box above or by Clicking Here.




Happy Mother’s Day Mother!

A special day over the weekend remembering our mothers.  My mother, Helen May Gentry Brown, would’ve been 104. She lived till she was 93, and really led a full life.  On the day she passed away, she talked to all three of her children, attended her bridge club and her financial group. I was blessed and that I spent the last few hours of her life with her.  I regret not spending more time with her in her later years. She was an inspiration, and  always encouraged me in any endeavor I undertook. I sure miss her. Happy Mother’s Day Mom.

Long Life of Books!

I find it  pleasant surprise now and then when older books that have been published by The Lisburn Press turn up. A friend of mine was checking out a flea market over theLafayette  area recently, and look what he found. My first book, printed back in 2005, is still making the rounds.  It’s not selling in the large volume that I experienced in the first few years after publication. But one turns up every now and then.  Nice to see such books are still circulating.
