I don't follow the details of state politics much but I know government employees who are saying that Jindal is destroying the pension system and taking millions out to balance the budget. I don't know how common this is in other states. Has he said how he plans to make up for those cuts?

Not that this improves the Lakers, but there has been talk for a while that the Clippers could possibly supplant the Lakers as "L.A.'s team." That wasn't likely to start with, but it was a possibility.
That's not happening now....

| Political Talk|| Predictions on Gay Marriage Supreme Court Ruling? - maine82 on 2/28/13 at 9:20 pm|
My prediction is you'll have 4 for gay marriage, 4 against, and Kennedy says that states have to at least provide civil union licenses of equal status to marriage but don't necessarily have to call it marriage. Thus he carries the day.
I think there's a 30-40% chance Roberts joins Kennedy but ...
