“Crooked as a dog’s hind leg,” my father used to say. That’s Louisiana, and the smirking insouciance with which its governing class (at least) has always wallowed in its own corruption only made it more repulsive. Well, the new governor has muscled its legislature into some real reforms, and I’m deeply impressed. If this sticks, it should be a leadership case study of classic stature.
One more compensating benefit of global warming gone, maybe. Is Florida next?
