Recently the Cleveland Plain Dealer reported that the (Ohio Bureau of Workers Compensation) continued to allow another fund manager, Alan Brian Bond, to manage $50 million for eighteen months after the New York money manager had been indicted in a high-publicity kickback scheme. This prompted Democratic State Senator Marc Dann to craft a bill requiring BWC administrators to Google the investment managers once a month to make sure they haven’t been indicted.

I hear people have taken to calling Louisiana “the Ohio of the South.”

Completely unfair! Louisiana administers elections in a fair and competent manner.

God bless Google.

Imagine what they could do with Lexis/Nexis.

You would think someone would tell them before putting the news on the web for Google to pick up. What a world! Theft just gets easier.

>>I hear people have taken to calling Louisiana “the Ohio of the South.”

Totally unfair on several counts. First off, at least Louisiana has New Orleans, Cajun food, and jazz, which make up for a lot of shortcomings.

Second, Louisiana has a long and glorious history of political corruption. I rather doubt the Midwest has yet birthed the crooked pol who could give Edwin Edwards a run for his money. The man openly taunted Federal investigators for years before they finally managed to put him away, and was still elected (legitimately!) 5 times if I recall correctly. And compared to the Longs, Edwards was a piker.

What an insult to Lousiana. Not only is their food a hell of a lot better, but at least their crooks, like the aforementioned Mr.Edwards, have been colorful and entertaining. We, on the other hand, have Bob Taft, best described by Orwell’s famous phrase for Stanley Baldwin- “not even a stuffed shirt, but simply a hole in the air”.

Okay okay, I actually heard that joke made about Connecticut, but it seemed to apply better to Ohio. What do I know out here in California.
