Cool “Louisiana Sports” images

A few nice Louisiana Sports images I found:

Huge Mural in Downtown Shreveport

Image by cybertoad
"Shreveport’s history and heritage can also be seen on the "Once in a "Millennium Moon" mega mural. This mural ties this area’s cultural legacy together. It is the largest public outdoor mural in the country spanning some 30,000 square feet on the 12-story AT&T building in downtown Shreveport. On the mural, the Caddo Indians, the area’s military installation Barksdale Air Force Base, and family heirlooms and community artifacts are depicted." link

"During the first two months of the Millennium Year, Meg Saligman and the staff of the Shreveport Regional Arts Council met with more than 75 organizations, interviewed hundreds of individuals about their ideas and heritage, photographed thousands of people for the mural and read every book written about this area!

Meg’s painting plan involved more than 2,600 people! She perfected a “paint by number” grid that is applied to sheets of plastic cloth. Once painted the cloth is “floated in acrylic” on the wall, much like wallpaper installation. Paint Parties were held all over Shreveport! Festival sites, parks, club meetings, art galleries, bank lobbies, and schools became home to paint sessions. The public commitment to work on the mural was awesome! More than 40% of the total mural has been painted by the community…" link

What do I have to do to legally perform on the streets of Louisiana?

I am a struggling musician. I currently live in new orleans where music thrives through the city. I want to know how or what EXACTLY i have to do to legally perform on the streets for profit like, standing at a corner with the little hat and people throw change in it while i sing and play guitar/keyboard etc. i dont want to get arrested or have in trouble with the police so what can i do or what papers do i need specifically to do such? and how to or where to get the papers or whatever from?

get a permit from the police, and lie saying its for charity

Purchasing hand guns in Louisiana?

I would like to purchase a handgun for my boyfriend for christmas from Academy Sports & Outdoors. What are the procedures and will i be able to just give it to him? or will we need to fill out some kind of paper work? this is all brand new to me!

Well if your giving the gun as a gift and the receipient is not barred from owing it then its legal. You also don’t need to do anything special when you give it to him as it is considered a private transfer and not regulated. There is no waiting period in your state. You will have to fill out a 4473 form, the dealer will help you if you need it and wait for the phone call backround check to clear. I assume you don’t have any felonies on your record. On that form they ask for your social, its optional and I would say not to give it. Plus you cannot abbreviate anything. So you have to write out YES or NO instead of Y or N. And it needs to be your info, not his. You do need to be 21 to buy a handgun from a dealer.

What food is famous in the area where you live?

I lived in Louisiana, and they have the best seafood ever, and cajun cooking. Now I live in Washington, and seafood is really big here too. Salmon the most.
Oh, I LOVE Carne Asada and Fish Tacos. I used to live in San Diego, and that’s the only place that has those (made right). And orange juliuses
