A big snowstorm in Baton Rouge? What? How the heck did that happen when folks in north Louisiana didn’t see a flake? Why couldn’t we up this way at least see a few flakes falling? The weather system was set up perfectly for moisture and cold temperatures meeting up down south at the right time while up here, all we got was cold temperatures and photos flooding the internet of snow men from our friends as far south as Terrebonne Parish.

Boatright, T. Scott 14.jpg

Late last month I wrote a column following the death of Charles Manson about how I believed he was a strong example of the cost of long-term imprisonment of convicts and what that means to financially-burdened states like Louisiana.

Saving during your working years. Financial freedom does not mean the freedom to do anything you want with your money. A fish that is “free” to jump out of the water and flop on to the bank will soon die from that kind of freedom. Real financial freedom is the freedom to do the right thing, the effective thing, with your money.
