Just a few comments today.
The New Orleans Saints
If you have read the blog for any length of time, you know I
Now we find out that the Defense had a bounty system for injuries to opposing players which was sanctioned by DC Gregg Williams, who even participated. Tom Benson and Sean Payton knew of it and didn't stop it.
I didn't like this when Buddy Ryan did it at Philadelphia in the 90's and I don't like it now. It is just wrong and it corrupts the sport.
I'll limit my football watching to college ball (it's better anyway) and continue my life-long support of the great LSU Tigers.
No more pro ball for me.
The School Board
The board is solidifying its expansion plans, contingent on the passage of the $210,000,000 bond issue. Without going into detail, looks like a new elementary school for Benton somewhere on the Kingston corridor, and in Phase 2 a new high school. I'll do a blog post with details soon.
The City Council
The Bossier City Council will be conducting their investigation of the firemen's pay mess. I'll try to get some updates and blog it this week.
Plenty of time in the summer to cover these. The local one of interest will be the judges' race to replace Judge Bolin. Whit Graves and Mike Nerren have both stated their intention to run. Nerren has a Facebook page up.
Both are qualified to do the job so it will come down to personal preference. I just hope it will be a clean race.
I'll work on these and in the meantime will wait to see which local politican will give us fodder for the blog. I love these guys, they are the gift that keeps on giving.
Meanwhile, enjoy your March into spring and stay tuned.
