Patrick Williams begins his Long Walk


Democratic Representative Patrick Williams is off on foot to Baton Rouge for the upcoming general session of the legislature.

He left Shreveport early this morning and hopes to reach Baton Rouge by the end of the month. He is walking to call attention to education, welfare and healthcare concerns.

Good for him. I hope that his walk bears fruit.

The url that you gave for your other blog, the Bossier blog, takes me to the Blogger status update page. I don't know what that is about.

Mimi - I changed my profile to public so you can go there and access the "My Bossier" blog. Thanks for your interest - I enjoy The Wounded Bird so much!

Hey Jim, let me ask you a question.

This is the “Jindal Watch”, right? What does that mean? I sort of glanced thru your stuff and saw where you are "watching" him; sort of.

You also "watching" Vitter. Not sure why especially when Jindal was in the process of crippling our public schools system even further.

Soooo, where were you when he ran that freakin' tax crap deduction thru another costly special session that will take state tax money and put it in that hands of those who send their kids to private and parochial schools thus further under minding the public school system?

BTW, your kids go to public schools?

Also, hi there mimi, long time, ne see.

You're right, d-bb, I 'sort of' watch Jindal and comment on various things.
David Vitter is an arrogant scumbag and I will speak out whenever the opportunity presents itself.
My kids are way past school age, but they did go to public schools, as do my grandchildren who are school age.
And no, I didn't blog on the so-called 'vouchers'. There is not enough time in the day to cover every bad thing done in Baton Rouge.

OK, try to do better next time. I think the bloggers gave Jindal a pass on that one and it is a major blow to the state educational system...that's a lot more important than some guy running around in diapers and getting spanked and shit. (Least he did it on the cheap.
