Louisiana's Department of Education says a record number of graduates have met the requirements necessary to receive a TOPS award. The news comes as representatives are scheduled to debate bills Thursday that would change the state's scholarship program.
My son is a high school senior, and my stomach lurched when the Louisiana legislature essentially laid waste to the TOPS program. Like many parents, I am searching for alternate ways to pay for college. His guidance counselor gave us the link to a nifty website featuring several odd scholarships I didn't know about! Who knew they offered a scholarship just for being funny? Or tall?
It seems that some in government think that the job of government is to control the people they govern. I understand laws that protect people; but don't understand laws that regulate our everyday lives. Worse than just passing the law is all the government spending it takes to enforce the law. Such a law is being proposed right here in Louisiana.

Indianapolis Colt Joseph Addai knows a bit about national championships, having played for LSU when they won theirs in 2003. All these years later, he gets to watch as his alma mater once again plays for the top title in the land. I interviewed him before that game in 2003 and again recently. What's it like to be on both sides of the sideline?
