Down History Lane

By Remy Benoit

It is interesting to sometimes step backward and see how events that are still of concern to our times were of concern to others.

From 1928 "A Chicken in Every Pot and Two Cars In Every Garage" Did he really say that? Herbert Hoover.

Perhaps this name never came up in your high school history class. The name, the man, both quite controversial.

"Every man a king..." Huey Long.

If you want to know more about how Huey manipulated everything and everyone try T. Harry Williams, Huey Long.

Another name you probably didn't hear in high school was that of Father Coughlin.

My point being, when things get tough there are usually those who will promise you the moon, and perhaps deliver something else. The cost of freedom is dear, and it means being informed, well informed, and protecting that freedom.

Vote...wisely, and well.
