With the much-enjoyed 2013 Mardi Gras now an endearing memory it’s time to turn our attention to the Lenten season and fasting. It’s always good to give up things like fancy desserts and fine liquor for a few months but with politicians like ours, we’re giving up much more.
Allan and Danae liked Bobby Jindal the Congressman — but not Bobby Jindal the Governor. This Lent, we are thinking about all those college students who have been negatively impacted by the constant cuts to higher ed. We’re thinking about the thousands of Medicaid recipients who will no longer get the quality of services they need; and the mental health patients and their families who are suffering because doctors, clinics and hospital beds are not available.
