Our petty tyrant governor, John Bel Edwards has declared an emergency in advance of the presumed impacts of tropical storm Nicholas. I'm sure that the declaration is tied to federal money, and our governor loves federal money. Loves it so much that Louisiana has been in a state of emergency for one thing or another since March of 2020. If it isn't a weather emergency, it is a public health emergency.
God love him, he must enjoying declaring emergencies, he does it so much. He ought to just go ahead and declare Louisiana a general disaster until the end of his term.
