This is Sunshine Week, folks, which means we in the news biz are reminding ourselves and our readers how important it is to protect the First Amendment and transparency in government at all levels. Here in Louisiana, there's not much to celebrate as our "reform" governor, Bobby Jindal, is bringing the wrath of God (i.e., himself) upon anyone who dares even to question his agenda.
Here's the good news: others seem to be getting wise to Jindal — even his most ardent admirers in northeast Louisiana.
Consider today's editorial in the Monroe News Star newspaper, which speaks to (and for) a large contingent of Jindal supporters.
It's nice to see others willing to point out the obvious: The Emperor has no clothes.
Pass it on.
