You are witnessing a new governor in Louisiana´s Governor Kathleen Blanco.
From events over the past few weeks including her Sunday evening speech to the legislature and the nation, Governor Blanco has signified new realities in her governing approach. She is going to be a tougher, meaner leaner machine, yet, full of Southern grace.
Hell, she'll have to be tougher than Huey P. Long.
(The pictures below were taken in 1931 by a relative of Blageur. The sign, posted over a bridge, reads "Hello Huey" on one side, "Goodbye Huey" on the other.)
