THE HIGHS AND LOWS OF BILLY CANNON

THE TOAST OF LSU!

If there ever was a Louisiana legend down here the Bayou State, it was Heisman Trophy winner and football All-American Billy Cannon. He died this week, and the whole state is in mourning. Billy Cannon had his highs and lows, but the people down here loved him wherever he went. Even after he went to jail for counterfeiting, he still was the toast of the Bayou State. I write about the magic of Billy Cannon and my personal experience with his downfall, in this week’s column. See highlights of Billy Cannon below. And ou can read my column now bye going to the Red Flashing Box above, or by Clicking Here.




Weekend Radio Schedule!

Showtime for our Common Sense radio program. Do we now have spygate engulfing the FBI? And how about Hawaii’s volcano– Is it telling us something? Dr. Richard Ruhling thinks so and will tie in Biblical prophecy. His latest book is “God bless America?” Also author Jim DeFelice will talk about his new book, “West Like Lightning”, about the formation of the pony express. And finally, we will talk with author Jamila Michener about her new book called “Fragmented Democracy”, that examines American democracy involving so many people living in or near poverty. So a full program is scheduled. Check local listings for times and stations. We will see you on the radio.




The Wild Mississippi!

If you live down here in Louisiana, you keep your eye out for flooding during this time of year. There’s massive runoff from rivers and streams throughout the north, the pass right by my hometown. The map below really pushes the focus on how much water actually come down the river. Two thirds of all the water in America drains right by us.  A stunning new map shows the complex network of rivers and streams in the contiguous United States. Created by Imgur user Fejetlenfej, a geographer and GIS analyst with a ‘lifelong passion for beautiful maps,’ it highlights the massive expanse of river basins across the country – in particular, those, which feed the Mississippi River.  You can see why we are so concerned about flooding.

A THIRD POLITICAL PARTY FOR LOUISIANA?

Public confidence in both the Republican and Democratic parties is at an all-time low, both in Washington as well as the state level. Political gridlock, in the view of many Americans, keeps anything from getting done. That’s why more and more voters are switching their allegiances to becoming independent. Is there room for a new independent party both from the state level as well as Washington DC? I write about becoming an independent in my new column now posted. Take a look and see what you think. You can read it now by going to the Red Flashing Box above or by Clicking Here.
