Simoneaux a hard act to follow

SHARE: facebook Twitter icon Linkedin icon Google+ icon Email icon |  PRINTER-FRIENDLY  |  COMMENTS

When I got to the Opinion page in the May 12 Herald, reality really hit me. Oh, no, there ain't no Simoneaux! It was a blue, blue Monday.
I love Eugene Robinson and some of the other columnists, but Larry is in a class with few ohters. I enjoy his writings as much as I enjoy Mark Twain and Will Rogers. He's that one sane, calm voice in a din of crazed egomaniacs. He not only addresses problems, but also presents viable solutions. He speaks common sense, which my grandmother always said, “ain't so common.” He reduced the calls to the suicide hotline on Mondays. He's going to be a hard act to follow.
To Larry, thank you and God bless you for all the good things you have given us. May your seas be calm, your shrimp be Cajun and your grandbaby spoiled rotten! Sincerely,
Cathryn Miller
