What has happened to Baton Rouge?

Not long ago, a local TV station ran a series of public service announcements, the theme of which was: “Baton Rouge, America’s Next Great City.”

I think we are there. We now have traffic like Atlanta, murders like Detroit, and common courtesy to rival that of New York City!

I’d like my little ole Baton Rouge back, where life was slow, families were safe, and people were friendly and caring of others.
