Yesterday, I came home to find a spanking-new plastic trash can awaiting me. These big bins were delivered all over our neighborhood and, presumably, around New Orleans. We didn’t need one. Our neighbors didn’t need one. We all had perfectly servi…

In the recent Advocate article by Will Sentell concerning proposed TOPS cuts, state Sen. Sharon Hewitt said she was "leery" of the idea of raising the semester hours to 30 to participate in the program because her constituents don't want the state…

It was a little jarring to read Martin Nolan’s letter today (Past time to repeal ‘Obamacare’) where he complains that Congress is dilly-dallying about repealing Obamacare. He accuses U.S. Sen. Bill Cassidy, a former public health doctor, of “stand…

The story of Obamacare is riddled with empty rhetoric, broken promises, and widespread outrage from the American people. The only good news is that new legislation has the opportunity to improve the situation for hardworking Louisianans across the state.

In this deeply divided political climate, many Americans are wondering if their voices will be heard on Capitol Hill. Is it possible to make a difference? The answer is yes.

For months now, there’s been far too much Russian smoke coming from President Donald Trump, his campaign, and now his presidential administration. We have learned of too many unexplained connections between Trump and Russian agents. We have heard …

The definition of insanity is "doing the same thing over and over and expecting a different outcome." Well, I recall that every candidate who was running for governor in 2015 promised to hold a special session to fix the budget. When is that going…
