The Saints went into this offseason with one goal: To improve a porous and often humiliating defense. Have they achieved their goal? Barring any 11th hour acquisitions, the unqualified answer at this point is, well, uh, maybe!

Are the events relating to the firing of the FBI Director James Comey by Donald Trump the catalyst for another constitutional crisis such as Watergate?

Caroline Picture 4This is a question I asked the American Constitution Society for Law and Policy, President Caroline Fredrickson today in a Facebook Live interview.

In yesterday’s shocking and controversial firing papers of FBI Director James Comey, Trump cited his gratefulness that Comey told him thrice that he was not under investigation.

Right in the smack center of a “your’re fired” letter, Trump essentially said, “Hey, Jim.  Thanks for claiming you are not going after me on this Russian deal, sorry, I don’t have any confidence in you any more.”

As a recovering Republican, I feel I am in a unique position to suggest that all political party labels be abandoned in favor of candidates representing constituents as opposed to clinging stubbornly to the blind loyalty of some group of adherents referring to themselves as Democrat, Republican or Libertarian.

punch castWOW!! Fifteen years ago.

Tiger Woods wins the Masters for the second consecutive year;  Pope John Paul II meets with the US Catholic Church Leaders at the Vatican to discuss the sexual abuse of minors crises.  Incoming Mayor Ray Nagin is about to embark upon an anti-corruption program; Candidates to replace Louisiana Governor Mike Foster were beginning to consider a race for the October 2003 elections.

Bernie burnsThe BIG question: What is Louisiana going to do about the one-penny sales tax increase the legislature passed last year to get itself out of the sizeable budget hole left by the Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal administration and the previous legislature?

Louisiana US Senator John Kennedy, today, questioned FBI Director Jim Comey on the issue of the Clinton administration email matter. The questioning occurred during the Senate Intelligence Committee questioning the Director. 

Specifically, Kennedy asked Comey about former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton assistant Huma Abedin forwarding State Department email to her then husband, Congressman Anthony Weiner. 

The Senate committee has been questioning Comey about a range of issues today, from Clinton Email to Russian hacking.
