We should build them a monument to irony

The time constrained, deficit challenged legislative session really does have more important things to worry about than monuments.
A bill that would block local governments in Louisiana from removing Confederate monuments and other commemorative statues without state permission was filed Friday in the Legislature.
Weird that I don't remember anyone in the New Orleans delegation voice any opposition to monument removal. Who filed this?
The bill was filed by Sen. Beth Mizell, R-Franklinton, who did not immediately return a call.

Members of the almost 10,000-member Facebook group Save Our Circle, who oppose taking down the city’s Confederate memorials, have contacted their representatives to try to get such a bill passed.
Not sure why they care so much about Lee Circle up in Franklinton. Maybe ask some of the many Northshore people in that Facebook group. Or better yet, ask Stacy Head. She's from up around that area.
