Prepare for safe holiday travel

The roads are a dangerous place to be, particularly during the holidays.
On Monday, Louisiana State Police announced that during the Thanksgiving holiday week, they investigated 13 fatal crashes that resulted in 14 deaths.
Because so many people are on the road for Thanksgiving travel, it can make the roads a little more crowded, and therefore less safe, than usual.

Jindal's potential presidential bid

Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal must be the luckiest politician ever. The candidate he backed for president lost, thus removing one more roadblock for his own 2016 presidential bid, and a bunch of Louisianans want to secede from the union before we fall over the fiscal cliff.
Just how lucky can Piyush Amrit Jindal — that’s the governor’s real name — get? No incumbent Republican president to campaign against, and the notion of his own country to run. Folks in other states want out, too, so the new nation may be a little bigger than just Louisiana. So much the better. Yep, the gallivanting governor, who seems to spend more time chasing national exposure than he does chasing problems here at home, has it made.

Judge halts voucher program in Tangipahoa

in

BATON ROUGE (AP) — A New Orleans-based federal judge halted Gov. Bobby Jindal’s voucher program in Tangipahoa Parish on Monday, saying it conflicts with a decades-old desegregation case.
The ruling could have implications for the statewide program throughout Louisiana, since more than 30 of the 69 parish and city school districts are under federal desegregation orders, according to the Louisiana Federation of Teachers.
Many of those parishes also are participating in the voucher program, which covers 4,900 students around the state.
