REAPPORTIONMENT BLUES-NO RIGHT TO CHOOSE!

It’s redistricting time for legislators, both in Louisiana and throughout the country. Criticism that decisions are being shaped behind closed doors is raining down on this politically sensitive process.  Lawmakers in my home state have scheduled a number of meetings to discuss the process of divvying up the various political boundaries including congressional, public service commission, and their own legislative districts. Many of the sessions are not open to the public.   “Wrong!” cry the press and the good government groups.  But the question should be, why are legislators meeting at all?  Check out why there is a much better way to proceed in a non-partisan way that gets the politics out of the process.  you can read my new column now by Clicking Here.

And please note that I will be making my annual trip next week to Tampa, Florida for baseball spring training.  I’ll certainly have a new column up next week on baseball and politics.  See you then.
