For 30 years, Louisiana had enough money in its various accounts to shift around dollars temporarily and cover the bills without resorting to a short-term loan. But the money available to do that was spent when Gov. Bobby Jindal was in office, as he and lawmakers tried to avoid new taxes and spending cuts.Doesn't look like anyone has a plan to find any more money any time soon. Certainly the Republicans in the House are happy to sit back and force the Governor to keep cutting stuff every year until that inevitably causes him to lose the next election.

If you're looking to "experience New Orleans like a local" today, the thing you absolutely should do today is get nekkid and climb up to the top of an electrical tower.
New Orleans Police, firefighters and EMS paramedics are trying to rescue a naked man who climbed 140 feet up an Entergy pole in New Orleans East.That might be a little far out from one of our "iconic" neighborhoods where you are probably renting a formerly affordable appartment. But maybe you can convince an Uber driver to take you there. You did want to see how the locals live, after all.
A little after 9:30 a.m., 911 dispatchers received a call reporting that a man had climbed the tower, which is near the 4500 block of Jourdan road, near Downman road.
