I'm at work and won't be able to do much updating, but I had to get this out there. WOW!

It's a breaking story, but a judge in Lafayette just ruled that the state's ban on same-sex marriage is unconstitutional.

More to come, I'm sure.

Facepalm. I can't even.

WASHINGTON -- The Bill Cassidy Senate campaign announced Thursday that the candidate's unmarried 17-year-old daughter is pregnant as she prepares for her senior year at a Baton Rouge high school.

Louisiana parents and schoolchildren can claim a victory today after a state district judge ruled two pieces of legislation underpinning Governor Bobby Jindal's school voucher program unconstitutional.

Not to mention the heinous quality of the "education" these private schools were planning to inflict on innocent children.
