JINDAL ALL THE WAY:

Louisiana's governor says no to second term (MELINDA DESLATTE, 3/21/07, Associated Press)

Louisiana Gov. Kathleen Blanco, burdened by the sluggish pace of the state's hurricane recovery and by pressures from within her own party, announced Tuesday that she won't seek re-election.

The decision could allow former U.S. Sen. John Breaux to enter the fall election. [...]

Elected in 2003, Blanco, a Democrat from Louisiana's Cajun country, had already drawn a half dozen challengers for this fall's election, including popular Republican U.S. Rep. Bobby Jindal, whom she defeated the last time out with 52 percent of the vote. Breaux, a popular Democrat who said he wouldn't enter the race if Blanco was a candidate, has said he will decide soon whether he will make a bid for the job.

A Jindal-Breaux matchup would be too bad because someone would have to lose. Louisisana doesn't have two more appealing political figures (and of course in the land of the blind . . . )

I got this headline, it was the apples and pencils one above that eluded me. Unless it's merely that the unemployed were selling said items during the depression.
