The Louisiana Social Pledge

We pledge our allegiance to Louisiana. We will embrace what makes us and our state unique. Louisiana will be recognized as a leader and innovator of the New South. Many great leaders of the future will come from this state. And we will show both the media and politicians that we are smarter than them. We will no longer have our resources exhausted and our people used and left behind. We will work hard and play hard. We will protect each other. We will support each other. We pledge that we will do whatever we can to get these things in motion right now. We will no longer wait for a path to be cleared for us. We will clear the path ourselves. And we ain’t giving up easily. We will socialize in the real world just as well as we do on the internet…in hopes to organize ourselves effectively.

Children, Don't Trust Just Any Garden (Louis Toliver Jr)

“Is this good to eat?”
The children stumbled into the garden
They had never seen such a variety of vegetables and fruits
Tomatoes, strawberries, carrots, apples, peaches, cucumbers
“Is this good to eat?”
Mark asked again holding some peapods in his hand
“Mother would love them!” Rebecca cheered
But Gary did not think it was good to be in the garden
“Put that down,” Gary demanded
Gary did not think these things grew together
They should not grow together
“It’s not good to eat! It’s a trick!” Gary screamed
But it was too late his brother and sister fell under a spell
“Yum. Delicious!” Mark chewed into the rind of an orange
“Yum. Delicious!” Rebecca ate a kiwi then nibbled on a piece of lettuce
Gary wept as he ran home quickly
Gary wept when he told his mother that her children were dead
They were poisoned by the thought that they could have it all
