Is Hate Crime Legislation Necessary?

In recent months, there is been widespread discussion of creating crimes based on age. Is there a difference on what someone is thinking? If your loved one is murdered, doesn’t make any difference what the reason might be? Shouldn’t the punishment be the same based on the crime that is committed? Or should there be different categories in the same criminal act? I write about the problem of hate crimes in my new column.

Hallelujah!

From the first time I heard the song by Leonard Cohen, I loved “Hallelujah.” Many people have recorded it in various ways. Here’s a marvelous rendition by two talented musicians called the TwoCellos. It’s certainly worth a listen.

Renaming an Alabama Fort for a Louisiana Hero!

Many of you readers are too young to remember the massacre that took place in the Vietnam war and an isolated location called My Lai. It was some 33 years ago, and hundreds of innocent Vietnamese were slaughtered by US troops. It was certainly one of the low points in American military history.  More innocents would’ve been slaughtered if it were not for a Louisiana helicopter pilot named Hugh Thompson. History  shown him to be a real American hero, and he was f rom Lafayette, Louisiana.  You can read all about this tragedy in this week’s column now posted.

Is Louisiana a Judicial Hellhole?

The insurance industry has a whole list of complaints and blames as to why the cost of insurance is so high. In my home state of Louisiana, it’s referred to, by some business interests, as a judicial hellhole. The reference is directed at the trial lawyers and those who want to give everyone access to the court system.  So just how bad is it when it comes to fair an open mind and judges? And other solutions to make justice for accessible, and be sure that there is fairness, particularly when judges are elected. I talk about the problem and possible solutions in this week’s column.
