Agent Pendergast -Can you imagine the actor to play him?

Dr. Aloysius X. L. Pendergast is a fictional character appearing in novels by Douglas Preston and Lincoln Child.

In the novels, Pendergast is a special agent with the United States Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI). He is a favorite among fans for his unique personality, appreciation of culture and his almost supernatural competence. He works out of the New Orleans, Louisiana branch of the FBI, but frequently travels out of state to investigate cases which interest him, namely those appearing to be the work of serial killers.

Holy cow, I love Pendergast. I’ve been reading those books for years. If I had to choose an actor to play him, Crispin Glover. If he dyed his hair. He’s tall and pale and intense, and a little creepy, like Pendergast. But I have a feeling no one would be able to live up to the readers’ expectations.

Whatever happened to LSU assistant football coachTravelle Gaines? Is LSU currently paying their players?

Last year, LSU assistant strength coach, Travelle Gaines has been accused of violating Louisiana state agent regulations by inviting student-athletes to his home to meet a sports agent and suggesting the agent should represent the athletes.

What is NCAA doing about this? Did LSU paid NCAA to ignore this case?

Fight On!!!

Root for USC

I’m a very proud Louisianian, and I am just curious to know what non-Louisianians think of Louisiana?

I’m very proud of my state’s beauty and culture. Sometimes the way Louisiana is portrayed on the big screen is irritating but funny at times, such as ‘ Water Boy ‘. But as far as that, Louisiana has unique foods (Crawfish , boudin, Gumbos,very big on seafood, Love lots of flavor and spice, One of the national famous Louisiana Hot sauces is manufactured in Avery Island,30 mins from my residence ,etc) , Culture (Cajun & Creole French culture, Acadian) , Festivities (Festival International, Mardi Gras, etc)
Beautiful Sceneries, such as the Bayous, Swamps, Cypress trees, historic houses and towns ex., New orleans, New Iberia,etc.
Just to give you a little mental tour, but I would love to know what others think! : ) !

laissez les bons temps roulez !! Let the good time roll!!
Yes I want honest answers, as someone asked earlier. Everyone is entitled to their own opinion. I asked the question, so answer it. This little detail is just to the people who thinks they’re offending me. I take the igonorance with the intelligence : )

I’m from NJ originally (don’t live there now) my wife is from LA,and I like it. Though I can’t go there in the summer because of the red bugs.What I like best are the people there.We’ll be going down there in Feb or March.

GRITtv: Courtney Young: BP Threatens Louisiana Culture

We may now have reached a period of national and global fatigue over the havoc wreaked by the spill. But as someone from Louisiana, I can attest that the disaster is very much pulsating through the daily lives of millions of people in the area. Though Louisiana is not the only place affected, it was certainly one of the most hardest hit by the disaster. Even after the hole is plugged, the damage done will last for decades, generations. A complete way of life, culture is under attack and it’s vital that we, as a nation, do not lose our sense of commitment to one of the most vital cultural traditions in the United States.
