How Long Has Bob Odom Been in Office?

His name stirs an old radio/TV commercial from childhood or my teens: Bob Odom...Bob Odom...Bob Odom...Bob Odom!

The latest sugar mill has always looked suspicious to me and I've never been able to figure out his obsession/passion for getting these things built. His trial, of course, drags on.

Some reading:

GB,
Do not forget that this same name also shouts out at you every time you buy gas too (on that annoying sticker). This trial business is interesting. I am a bit vague on who is guilty of what in Baton Rouge (it is kind of hard to keep up_, but is there not a 'fine' history of folks in this position going to jail?

In this neck of the woods, they announced today that they have found another body in N.O., making it 28 since March. Did you see that? I think you should shout this out load. It is (yet another) disgrace.
