    42% would probably win a 3 way race

    This one was split between 7 in finals, out of what, 500?

    I am afraid the Pepper is riding the Ragin' Cajuns coattails. I saw a poll earlier this year that claimed the pepper was a Sunbelt favorite. I tend to think the voters meant the vote to go to the moniker not the spirtit leader.

    I think in due time...The Nation will agree that we have something special here! Even the folks 50 miles from us will soon have to agree!

    In their hearts they know we have something special here, but they will never verbally admit to that!!

    I noticed in today's Times-Picayune there was a front page story on Louisiana "hero," James Carville. The story focused on the new remake of the movie "All the King's Men". Carville was a major catalyst in making this movie and getting the location in Louisiana. Kudos to him. But the item that stuck in my craw was where it said he was "an LSU alum who is often referred to as the "Ragin' Cajun"". Could he possibly BE any more assinine??? Whoa! Now, this isn't the first time I've heard about this, but to see it in print on the front page of the NO T-P was a bit much.
