His name was Tipsy Tuxedo and he was referred to as “the cat who came for Christmas and never went home!” Tipsy started out in Natchitoches as a kitten. He was black with a “Got Milk?” mustache, a white chest, white boots and a tail that constantly swished. His whiskers were long and white and he had the typical black cat personality of “I can do anything I want!” (And he did!!)

Do Wars defend America’s Freedom?

U.S. politicians and pundits are fond of saying that America’s wars have defended America’s freedom. But the historical record doesn’t bear out this contention. In fact, over the past century, U.S. wars have triggered major encroachments upon civil liberties.

Speaking Out for Louisiana Citizens

There goes the post office, the health unit, Wright’s Appliances, Massingill’s Appliances, Williams Brothers – these are

Louisiana and most of the nation have long been in favor of the Keystone Pipeline that has been proposed for the last
few years. The pipeline would bring oil from Canada and help reduce our dependency of foreign oil. Although Senator Mary
