And the little head is (again) toast! Son of self proclaimed King of Torts Daniel Becnel suspended again by the ODC.

This time is really good. Sex with a client. Something tells me Slabbed may just get the blow by blow on this one. Those interested in Becnel’s first rodeo with the ODC should click here. I’ll note we’re having this problem in North Mississippi as well. Stay tuned.

Let’s visit with the G Bitch over at her spot to get the lowdown on the Orleans Parish School Board District 3 race

Yes folks there is a NOLAclsuive blogger that goes by the handle G Bitch and she has had a thing or two to say about Orleans Parish School Board Candidate Sarah Usdin, who appears to me to be long on flash and talking points but possessive of baggage.

Baggage?? I’m a firm believer in contra indicators and to the extent both Clancy DuBos’ Gambit and The Times Picayune have had special talents endorsing future felons for political office the fact both endorsed Usdin should give everyone pause, especially when it appears large amounts of money at Usdin’s nonprofit were not spent directly educating kids at the Charter Schools her non-profit supported. Finally there ha$ got to be a rea$on $omeone leave$ a 6 figure job at a nonprofit dedicated to Charter $chool $tyle education to run for $chool board that i$ likeLy related to the massive amount$ of out of $tate campaign ca$h U$din ha$ banked.

The incumbant, Brett Bonin sure enough looks like a geek in the pictures you see of him at NOLA.com but I hear he busts his ass for his peeps in OPSB District 3 and is in the game for the right reasons. As a general rule I’m Cavet emptor on pretty faces spouting talking points and that goes double in education. We’re keeping an eye on this race.

Will someone please get the DMR and Bill Walker outta the real estate business.

Suspension of disbelief

Suspension of disbelief or willing suspension of disbelief is a term coined in 1817 by the poet and aesthetic philosopher Samuel Taylor Coleridge, who suggested that if a writer could infuse a “human interest and a semblance of truth” into a fantastic tale, the reader would suspend judgment concerning the implausibility of the narrative.

So the DMR is actually considering swapping Harbor Landing, which taxpayers bought from the taxpayer real estate king David Harris for over $3.6 million plus 18 months of free use for a piece of larger parcel of undeveloped land on the Biloxi waterfront the owers could not sell in total for $2.5 million. This folks, sounds like DMR Director Dr Bill Walker math to me, but then again maybe that is why the Office of the State Auditor had investigators crawling all over Walker’s office around a week ago. I hear the OSA has taken an interest in taxpayer funded real estate transactions across the coast in fact. From my vantage point this area is indeed rich in scams and rife with fraud.
