The local chamber of commerce took out a full-page newspaper ad, warning of a rise of “radicalism.” The head of the Louisiana Association of Business and Industry wrote that “the anti-business crowd has had their fun,” but needed to “cool … [Read more...] about A School Board Says No to Big Oil, and Alarms Sound in Business-Friendly Louisiana
