I love Louisiana. I was proud to call New Orleans my home for nearly ten years. Hell, I don't even live there anymore and I STILL call it home. I love the food, the music, the dancing, the culture, the sticky sweltering heat, the people, especially the people...
Well, not always the people.
I just read this story, out of Hammond, Louisiana. Suburb of New Orleans, across the lake. About 45 minutes north. Justice of the peace denied an interracial couple a marriage license. It's a jaw-dropping story, you can read it here if you want.
I mean, what the fuck? Seriously. Welcome to Louisiana. You have just entered a time warp. The year is 1924.
Sigh. I love Louisiana. I really do. This guy is awesome...
Laissez les bons temps rouler, cher ti bebe!
