Lusher Charter School

was one of six Louisiana public schools nominated by the state for the U.S. Education Department's National Blue Ribbon Schools Program, which "recognizes public and private elementary, middle and high schools based on their overall academic excellence or their progress in closing achievement gaps among student subgroups." Winners will be announced in September.

The Louisiana Association of Business & Industry (LABI)

rightly backpedaled after inviting Fox News host Laura Ingraham to be the keynote speaker at its annual meeting — when Ingraham scoffed at the #MeToo movement in her remarks and expressed support for New Orleans' Confederate monuments. LABI issued a vague statement saying "some" of Ingraham's views "are not reflective of the opinions held by the diverse membership." What did LABI expect?

Jeff Landry,

Louisiana's attorney general, said he thought Laura Ingraham would "make a great Governor" of Louisiana — despite the fact that Ingraham isn't a Louisiana resident, has no governing experience and any candidate for governor has to have lived in the state for no less than five years. We already know Landry will do anything for publicity, but shouldn't our attorney general know the law?
