I got word from an anonymous source today that there may be some interesting court documents released apparently implicating a couple of very high-ranking Shreveport officials in marijuana use with a local attorney. There are also potential pot purchases from the same officials. It appears this was related to a divorce proceeding.
At this point, I don’t want to publish any names yet until the documents are released, but stay tuned. This could turn very interesting very quickly. Get ready for the sparks since I think it’s still a crime around here.
Oh yeah, the next time you are trying to bring fiber into the area – you might not want to focus on existing fiber networks such as LONI.
In case you didn’t know, Google had a competition for Google Fiber. You may not be aware that Google owns vast amounts of “dark fiber” – unused fiber optic cable run preceding the .com Bust of the late 1990’s. Google also sees a huge benefit in pushing telcos and cable companies to spend money on better infrastructure and give us real connectivity. The more content we can consume and search for – the better Google does.
Prediction (quoting the Soup Nazi): No fiber for Shreveport – 1 year!
edit: Ok – I will at least give Mayor Cedric Glover credit for trying something. It was still a lame attempt though.
