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.

Reality or Perception?? (Adam John Schexnayder-Crowley, LA)
To be me?? One might quiver at the thought of that. Just as the one Greek God sentenced to hold the earth upon his back, it would be just a sentence. A long punishment for something you're not quite sure even happened. For all the forces against the idea of me, and you want to walk a few steps in my shoes? Can't you see the slow, mechanical destructuring of my path. One can never tell which way is up in my world. Yet you still choose to ask of me?? For once, I slip on the shoes of another. And I see. Or don't see. And then the lightbulb illuminates...... Perception is always someone else's reality.
