FEBRUARY 28, 2016

I am pleased to take over as publisher of and contributor to The Daily Kingfish. With a rich history of almost a decade of hard-hitting analysis and advocacy, DK offers independent news and analysis of Louisiana politics, policy, and civic leadership from a progressive or “center-left” perspective.

Going forward, each article will be signed by its respective author who will bear sole responsibility for its content (see disclaimer below). In other words, I will no longer publish or allow content by anonymous or pseudonymous writers. However, I will, in the name of posterity, leave all previously-published articles in place (subject to the disclaimer below that none of the previous content shall be attributed to me). You can read about the history of the Daily Kingfish here.

In addition, and importantly, the content published on DK will be original and independent: original in that we will not wholly repurpose/repost content from other sites and independent in that we will not publish any content the purpose of which is to advance an organization’s or individual’s agenda, without plainly stating such purpose.
