[quote]You misread him. Mike is and has always been a deeply religious guy. He's a good guy who's entire platform is based on faith. I don't agree with him on some things, buT he is a champion for the religious right. Always has been. I suspect he was just trying to visit his base where they congreg...

My church has 4,000 members and three services on Sundays. it is one of the biggest in the area. We have a number of elected officials that attend church there, never have they handed out campaign materials. We have had people "join" the church before their campaigns, but never permitted to talk abo...

[quote]I remember back before Youree Drive got built up, so about 15 or 20 years ago, a friend's cousin from BR came to visit and I had to sit there and listen to him tell us that Baton Rouge was so much better than Shreveport because they had a Best Buy. That's all I hear when BR people bash ...

[quote]I wanna pull up their audit report and see how broke they are yet have to have an aquarium, but then I'll just get angry at government even more [/quote] That is a tough pill to swallow. If I understand the deal correctly, the City money was a one time deal and not ongoing. The aquarium i...

[quote] All Shreveport has going for it is casinos,[/quote] Thats just not true. That may be our highest tourism function, but definitely not representative of the City.

[quote]I'm nearly always skeptical when Gov spends a little money, but after reading a little bit I think this will be a nice addition.
