Dennis Woltering's interviews with Lower Mid-City homeowners from last Friday or Lower Mid-City businessman Mickey Weiser's op-ed in the Times-Picayune from yesterday.
My favorite line from the Woltering interviews belongs to Gail Ruth:
"I think people are getting screwed."
My favorite part of Weiser's op-ed:
HB 780 breezed through the House, 94-2. It crashed and burned in the Senate Education Committee, where it was "deferred" by a vote of 6-1.
You have to ask -- why are LSU and the State Office of Facility Planning so afraid of this bill? This bill should be embraced by LSU and any reasonable and thoughtful legislator. Wouldn't having a valid, up-to-date financing plan help speed the process? Who builds property or opens a business without clear and present funding? That's Business 101.
I should know; I took the course at LSU.
