For John, BLUF: Time for real diversity, a Republican of "color". Nothing to see here; just move along.
In the Sunday edition of The [Lowell] Sun was an opinion piece by Ms Kathleen Parker, on Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal. I think it is a puff piece, but, frankly, I like Mr Jindal. One of my friends here in Lowell thinks Gov Jindal sold out by becoming a Roman Catholic, but from my point of view (1) I am an R/C and think it is usually a good decision and (2) if he was just pandering, even in Louisiana he would have become a Protestant Evangelical.♠
Best line of the article:
Hide the children. He defied protocol!I will grant you that Governor Jindal doesn't "look" presidential, at least not like Vice President Biden looks presidential. But he seems to be a tough cookie, and smart. I do admit that Rhodes Scholar thing works against him.
