New Orleans Rising
~Frances N. Tolentino

~The experience of New Orleans, on a broader sense, signifies mankind’s unfaltering hope that though life is at times unkind, it is most of the time benign and generous. After any devastation, there is always that hope of rehabilitation.

More Secrecy Afoot In Charity Hospital Controversy

~Recently, Louisiana and Obama Administration officials announced that special arbitration panels to resolve ongoing disputes between the state and FEMA over public words projects would be set up to begin hearings by the end of August. Further review of the principles guiding the rules of the arbitration system indicates a further erosion of stakeholder rights in the Charity Hospital controversy, expected to be the biggest dispute settled by the panels.

~Neither political party was polite. “Throughout his career, David Vitter has consistently voted to allow large financial conglomerates to run wild without oversight or regulation,” said Kevin Franck, press secretary for the state’s Democratic Party. “In what is just the latest example of David Vitter’s hypocrisy, it seems that he was against government oversight of the financial sector before he was for it,” Franck added.

Roosevelt’s La. bear hunt
~In “The Wilderness Warrior: Theodore Roosevelt and the Crusade for America,” Douglas Brinkley offers a mostly flattering portrait of Roosevelt’s foresight in setting aside huge tracts of public land as wilderness areas for future generations.
Roosevelt traveled widely, and Brinkley’s book takes readers along to the many places where TR enjoyed the great outdoors. One of those places, the swamp forests of East Carroll Parish where Roosevelt hunted for a black bear, is the setting for a kind of allegory about the brighter and darker angels of Roosevelt’s nature.
Not everyone was a fan of Roosevelt’s exploits in Louisiana. “Reports of Roosevelt’s bear hunt sickened Mark Twain,” Brinkley tells readers. “To Twain, the spectacle of the president, who was getting rounder by the day, trudging through the swamplands in a downpour to kill one of the last black bears in East Carroll Parish was pathetic.”
