THE KU KLUX KLAN IN LOUISIANA!

The tragedy in Charlottesville Virginia last week raises the profile of hate groups likes the Ku Klux Klan. Louisiana had been a hot bed of Klan activity back in the 50s and 60s, and many Americans are well aware that one of the top national Klansman, David Duke, came from Louisiana. He was so popular down in this part of the country back in the early 90s that he was elected as a state representative, and garnered a majority of the white vote in a race for governor. In my column this week, I look back on my own experiences with Ku Klux Klan activities. The local Klan members were pretty active in trying to keep me out of politics.

WHO’S AT FAULT FOR HIGH AUTO INSURANCE RATES?

Wasn’t it Shakespeare who said, “The first thing you do is to kill all the lawyers?”  In this day and age, attorneys get blamed for just about any problem or wrong. That’s sure the case here in Louisiana when it comes to the highest automobile insurance rates in the nation. The politicians and insurance regulators always say it’s the lawyer’s fault. But it’s far, far from being that simple. Check out my new column now posted.  You can read it now by clicking on the Red Flashing Box above or by Clicking Here.




Watergate Anniversary!

It was on this week in 1974 that Richard Milhous Nixon resigned as president of the United States.  But did you know that former Louisiana secretary of state and insurance commissioner Jim Brown  (Me) almost ended up working for Nixon?  Here’s a remembrance from Brown’s syndicated newspaper column in April of this year.. Nixon became the first and only president to resign from office. Those of you too young to remember the events surrounding Watergate missed one of the most riveting episodes of American history. Nixon survived a number of bitter political fights, but he had always been able to bounce back. However, it was his own words in secret recordings that he personally authorized in the Oval Office that finally led to his downfall.  Take a look at my Nixon column that was written in the Spring.  You can read it now by Clicking Here.
