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.

The Psychic Was Right (Samuel Jones-Bastrop, LA)

"I'm studying abroad!"
I thought defiantly as I churned
The deepest internal eye roll
I could muster.
"You will not leave here;
Who you need to meet is already in Lafayette."
She said with the plainness
Of having done this a thousand times before.
I like psychics, I really do.
I even believe in them. However,
I have a problem with anybody telling me
What I can and cannot do--
Smokey eye/turban combo or not.
"I'll show her," I affirmed to myself,
"I've worked too hard!"
Yet, I'm still here.
I had totally forgotten about her prediction
Until recently. I mean,
That was back in 2011 and
I thought she meant THAT summer.
"You will both come together and create something wonderful."
Girl, get out of town.
