Happy ‘unThanksgiving’ to all

in
Bergeron, Nancy 2014.jpg

This is not your usual Thanksgiving column. I’m not going on about what I’m thankful for, or even what other people say I’m supposed to be thankful for.
Nor am I going to point out — again — how the Pilgrims get short shrift between way-too-smiley jack-o’-lanterns and way-too-jolly St. Nicks. Nope, done with all that.
History doesn’t change anyway, right? So why bother with the same old thing? This year, let’s put a new spin on this Turkey Day stuff.

Early voting: It’s a good choice to make

Just when you thought elections were behind us, here comes another one.
Early voting for the Dec. 10 general election begins Saturday.
And, while the items on the ballot may not be getting as much hype as did this month’s presidential contest, they’re important nonetheless.
Top on the list: the statewide U.S. Senate runoff between state Treasurer John Kennedy, a Republican, and Public Service Commissioner Foster Campbell, a Democrat.
The men are vying for the seat held by retiring Sen. David Vitter (R-Metairie). The winner becomes Louisiana’s junior senator.
