    Would you elect a politician who says "I don't listen to you, I spend my time getting money to run again"…or, "my endorsement can be bought by the highest bidder"?  A Kentucky man is running for senator with those words (and more) to educate Americans on the politics really works.  Would you vote for him?

    The in-house Louisiana fight over how to slow the loss of southern Louisiana to gulf water is growing. Some raising private funding claim the state refuses to provide matching funds. The state says they don't have the money. Private citizens point to multi-million dollar studies as proof to the contrary. Does this fight benefit the ultimate goal of state survival? Garland was joined by Capt. George Ricks, President of the Save Louisiana Coalition and Jerome Zerinque, Executive Director of the Coastal Protection and Restoration Authority.
