    To the usual suspects,

    I think the average resident of Louisiana would be very happy to keep the outsiders
    outside unless its the tourists who want to spend money. I know this because I was
    reared (I was taught cattle are raised and people are reared) in Louisiana near
    Shreveport. I recently went back for the first time in 18 years. Casinos are
    everywhere. Shreveport is "Little Las Vegas of the South".

    Anyway, it is a nation unto itself. California has nothing on Louisiana. Half the
    population in Shreveport at any given moment is Texans who have come to give their
    money to the racetrack or casino. Now they have a new tax base. The old ones were
    oil and bizarre fines or fees. Ask anyone who traveled through Bunkie or
    Cheneyville if they have problems raising revenues from speeding fines on State
    Highway 71.

    It can't be a very bad place since Hank Williams Jr. was born there. So, if you're
    going to sue, the casinos are the only ones with money. The rest of the state is
