No one takes Louisiana seriously

Not outside of our borders, anyway. Case in point: " 20-Ring Political Circus" in today's Washington Post. All the colorful, wacky candidates are trotted out and displayed to the sopisticates. It's not really so bizarre an assortment, by Louisiana standards. But the NOLA mayoral cadidates are still presented as a head-shaking freakshow and an example of why right-thinking people do not and have never taken South Louisiana seriously. Cartoons don't have problems! You can drop a safe on cartoon people and they get right back up! So, Get Up, New Orleans! The political elites of Washington will read that article over their morning martinis and our chances, already slim, will get a just a little bit worse.
