This NY Times has a very kind, if not completely softball article about the new Louisiana governor’s enaction of new ethics rules.

While that could be surprising in itself, I was shocked that the state legislators angle to have lobbyist-paid dinners at the local Ruth’s Chris Steakhouse. How could the leaders of the epicenter of American cuisine desire and frequent a chain restaurant? (Yeah, it is a steakhouse, but still…) Was there no Applebee’s nearby?

Anyway, best of luck to Louisiana. If they’re successful maybe we’ll be shamed into doing something.
