The right-smart honorable Raymond E. Huffmaster is accompanying me on this trip to Houston. If you are in Bluegrass music and your ears are burning, well, now you know why.
We are about 10 miles east of Baton Rouge on I-12. It is raining and traffic is very heavy.
I just heard of this morning’s murder of three Baton Rouge police officers and the wounding of two others. A significant portion of the town has been closed to traffic. Troubles are all around us.
May my many close, personal friends in Baton Rouge know peace this day. The same for those I don’t know. That seems likely for some, and very unlikely for others, particularly those who lost loved ones.
