[font size="1" color="#FF0000"]LAST EDITED ON 09-11-05 AT 05:54PM (CST)[/font][br][br]It's scary. Senator Mary Landrieu, Lt. Governor Mitch Landrieu, former mayor of New Orleans Moon Landrieu, John Landrieu. All of these people with the same name from the same city, all posturing, except Moon Landrieu who may be dead for all I know. Visions of federal jobs and future elections. If Mary isn't on the national news, Mitch is. I'm afraid even the Landrieu tribe will not be able to keep the 'man behind the curtain' in their state from being exposed.

Maybe some of our Louisiana participants will be able to inform us about this Landrieu group.

(edit Sunday) Aha. The question is answered. There was a large Democrat press conference today with Kerry on one side of the minority speaker and Mary Landrieu on the other. They will certainly make this a race issue in the next election. Just wait and see.

The press/media have conveniently left out any coverage of the people in south Mississippi who were similarly affected. Sure they show the overhead, helicopter shots of the churches and businesses and homes that are leveled, but there are no human interest stories from there.

The cities of Gulfport and Biloxi are side by side on the Gulf Coast, not 80 miles from New Orleans and they were the most severely affected by the hurricane. The only difference, which is the reason the media have not covered Mississippi human interest pieces, is that the poor people affected by the hurricane in Mississippi were for the most part white. Displaced, poor, present and history lost, futures questionable, all weeping, but one difference. Watch the politics. Larry King is having a field day.
