My latest column for the Bayou Brief is online and ripe for reading. The prose, however, may be overripe in places.
Here’s the tag line: “Peter Athas on the death of former Governor Mike Foster and how Trump’s illness has evoked the final years of Earl K. Long.”
I included my name so you’d know I wrote it.
I compare Earl Long to Donald Trump. Uncle Earl is the winner:
However unhinged Earl Long became at the end of his life, he was a better man than Donald Trump. He wasn’t a malignant narcissist who only thought of himself. He genuinely cared about poor people regardless of their race. He was a kinder, gentler populist before that term was besmirched by the Impeached Insult Comedian.
Get thee to the Bayou Brief.
That’s all folks.
