How the 50-year-old time capsule sealed in a concrete sarcophagus by local concrete company owner Harry B. Hungate was opened Saturday and found to have water in it is a mystery to me. Any theories? Hungate was the father of our local midwife Emmy Trammell. Her grandfather Bill Haight was a popular (elected and reelected several times) Ponchatoula mayor. The preacher was wired for sound with a lapel mike, and as he preached, he moved briskly about the platform, jerk- ing the mike cord as he went. Then he moved to one side, getting wound up in the cord and nearly tripping be- fore jerking it again. After several circles and jerks, a little girl in the third pew leaned toward her mother and whis- pered, "If he gets loose, will he hurt us?" Fetching artist Faith Veatch is now a red-headed fetch- ing artist, and a master of color. One particular four-year old prayed, "And forgive us our trash baskets as we forgive those who put trash in our bas- kets." I couldn't help but notice that our own Lou Ann LeBlanc at the Holy Ghost Parish Fair did no stray far from the famous Pie Lady aka Frances Chauvin, whose trademark pies are the stuff of legend and were very popular at the fair (Braville, did you get so much as a forkful?). Tabasco: a Louisiana product, holds the second oldest food trademark in the U.S. Patent Office. Perhaps Rep. Steve Pugh should get a law passed in the Louisiana Legislature affirming that it is legal to breathe. After all, it took Revised Statute 51.2247.1 to spell out that a mother "may breastfeed her baby in any public place" and clarifies that breastfeeding is not a violation of law. Relax Patrick Terrence McMahon, you're legal! "Impartiality is a pompous name for indifference, which is an elegant name for ignorance," said G.K. Chesterton, Dr. Bob Benson's buddy.
