"I thought I would get out of prison and relax. I am busier now than I was in prison. At least now I get paid." — Former Gov. Edwin Edwards, addressing a fifth-grade class at Levi Milton Elementary School in Walker, La., Aug. 24. The school had sent notes to parents informing them that the former governor, a convicted felon, would be speaking at the elementary school. The night before, the 84-year-old Edwards and his new bride Trina served as guest bartenders at an event held by the Press Club of New Orleans at Molly's at the Market in the French Quarter.
