Election-driven news and views . . . by Jim Geraghty.

Six Pages of Good News from Louisiana


Hooray! To celebrate Bobby Jindal’s resounding reelection victory this weekend, the editors have taken my article on Jindal’s first term in the current issue and posted it on the homepage. It is long, but I think it is a worthwhile read: a detailed portrait of successful conservative reforms, gaining popularity in a state not known for a tradition of Republican governors. It is probably the happiest story I’ve written in my career; read all the way to the end to catch a glimpse of the Sci Academy in New Orleans and the remarkable results they’re getting from students in some of the toughest situations.
