    That's about right. It's about the same sentence that Edwin Edwards got

    I think it's a just punishment for what he did. 10 years at his age ain't no picnic.

    I liked him. Thought he had a lot of charisma. I wish things would have worked out differently for him.

    He started well...I think Katrina gave him a psychological blow he never recovered from. His actions and demeanor went through a radical change during that time.

    He started off as if he were going to route out corruption. Then as time went on he became an arrogant S.O.B. After the racist Chocolate City speech where he attempted to imitate the cadence of Martin Luther King, Jr. and proclaimed that the city would be chocolate because God wants it that way, I began to genuinely dislike him. I was actually hoping he would have received a stiffer sentence. Age should have nothing to do with the length of a sentence. There is never an opportune time to go to prison. If you are young, your attorney could argue you will be serving the prime years of your life. I saw on television that Edwards received the same sentence, but I also saw where "dollar bill" Jefferson had a longer sentence.

    Prison is a good place to learn the blues. We should chip in a buy him a guitar. When he gets out he can be The Chocolate City Blues Man
