Special session was called only 18 months ago
Some reporters say that the leges havenít done so in "modern times." Others say it hasnít been done since the 1974 Constitution was adopted and still others report that such a session has been called only once under the 1974 Constitution. Members of the public are wondering if the leges even have the authority to call themselves into a session.
The leges do have the constitutional authority and they did call themselves into a special session in "modern times."
For those of us with short memories, it was only about 18 months ago.
The only difference then and now is that Bobby Jindal didnít oppose the session in 2011 and thus didnít call the leges threatening their "pet projects" if they voted to call themselves into session.
It remains to be seen whether those "pet projects" are more important to the leges than their constituents desires regarding the state hospitals, prisons and colleges.
Itís all about priorities.
Moret attempts to explain the inexplicable
The ethically-challenged Stephen Moret attempts to explain the contradiction between his oft-touted job growth figures, a rise in poverty and a fall in median income in Louisiana.
Moret says: "[C]ompared to other states, we still have too many people who either havenít graduated from high school or who elect not to pursue additional education beyond high schoolÖ." Baton Rouge Advocate, Sept. 22, 2012.
Translation: As head of LED Iím creating great-paying jobs in Louisiana, but the people who live in Louisiana are too dumb to hold them.
That may explain why his boss, Bobby Jindal, is replacing Louisiana citizens holding state government jobs with non-resident, transient, workers.
Obviously, Moret believes he can fix the problem by becoming the next president of LSU.
