It's been a tough week for this writer. I've sat down five or six times to type out this week's update to no avail. It's not really. Writer's block as much as it is a topic block. Ihaveseveralideasfor posts in the coming weeks. They are mostly ideas that involvemorethan just sitting down to write and the ground work on them is not yet complete. There were other ideas that got the axe before I even got out the keyboard.
My comrades on the radio discussed a story by another New Yor based outlet that asserted that barbecue is racist. I've just come to grips with the fact that New York journalists will say anything that is traditionally Southern is racist. It is the only thing they seem to think about everything. It's old,it's tired, that's all for that this week.
NewOrleans is trying to destroyit's pastby removing monuments that commemorate the Confederacy. I'm sure removing statues from town willcompletelysolve the poverty and crime problems in New Orleans. Such a bold decision will surely put an end to the corruption that always exposesitselfin Louisiana politics.
There are other topics,some even funny,that Ijust couldn't get motivated enough to expound on.
But I'm not out. There is more to come.
