Just gotta love Louisiana, I wonder if there will be a march to protest today's march. We have a new Governor and I wish he would come out and put a stop to all this madness. We have such a sad state. The new Governor wants to get all the corruption out of the state and I hope that this is one issue he will take on. If someone in our state is corrupt he said he will call them out!
