A couple of weeks ago, Gov. Bobby Jindal was in town to speak about the recently completed special session. He made his stop at Bossier Parish Community College and I was in the audience to listen to his comments.
With him behind the podium were many of the northwest Louisiana delegation, including District 9 Rep. Henry Burns. Gov. Jindal offered each legislator an opportunity to speak before giving his remarks.
When is was Rep. Burns time, he began by asking "Is David Specht in the room?"
Totally caught off guard, I sheepishly raised my hand. Rep. Burns went on the praise an article I had written wrapping up the session in a previous edition of the Press-Tribune.
It was a gratifying, yet humbling experience. Journalists do not write articles to receive praise, especially from those who they are covering with their reports. Howver it is nice when someone says "You got it right."
Thank you Rep. Burns.
