Some pretty powerful interviews this morning. Apparently, when I go to church by myself, I've been doing it wrong.
We talked to Archbishop Gregory Aymond about the rash of violence and robberies in local Catholic churches. A woman was mugged inside a chuch, and a priest was robbed and beaten at a Metairie church! The Archbishop's advice: Leave your cash AT HOME and don't go to church alone!
So, what about all that extra tolls collected on the CCC after January 1? What about all the hard-earned cash I had put on my toll card AFTER January 1, before the judge threw out the election? I asked that question of Jefferson Parish President John Young. Click HERE to hear what he had to say!
And, with all the other problems going on with the NOPD...increasing response times, thinning ranks, low morale...Is this REALLY the right time to force a residency requirement upon officers, as we're apparently having issues with recruiting? Fraternal Order of Police Spokesman Raymond Burkhart told me this morning the residency requirement isn't about making our police force better or more efficient... He says that it's just good old fashioned politics. Click HERE to listen to what he had to say.
Last but not least: Click the window below to see our latest “LIVE from the office” video. Think I took my life in my hands trying to “spoon” our WWL resident Marine (and former cop) Kristian Garic as he napped on the studio couch? He got “Tuckered.” What was I thinking??
