You might be surprised to find out a north Louisiana redneck like me was the author of Â legislation back in the 1970s to create a French speaking commission in Louisiana. It’s called CODOFIL, Â and today has programs in schools to continue the french tradition in my home state. Â Many older folks in south Louisiana still speak french as their primary language. Â I’ve traveled to France on a number of occasions, and always enjoy trying out my broken french. Â I’m pictured below at a recent CODOFIL reception Â with Louisiana’s Â Lt. Governor Billy Nunguesser, who’s office oversees this important program. Â Go to its website HERE.
