The thing is that population shifts do indicate that LA will be losing a rep in DC.

Born and raised in Breaux Bridge and spent 05-08 in Shreveport/Bossier. I like both but I found that the two differs just a bit. It gets a bit colder in S'port and muggier in BB, and seems like the people are much nicer in the southern part of the state. All I can say is that now I live in Phoenix, I cannot wait to get out of this place and get back home. I miss my Catahoula Reeboks and some boudin and cracklin!

Hey Jim,

http://www.bea.gov/regional/docs/msalist.cfm?mlist=45

Check it out. Thanks for making me checking it again. Because, the last time I had checked, it only included Rapides Parish. I am able to update my files. Thank you

My name is Benji, by the way.

The Alexandria area is a player in LA. A brighter future is ahead.

This is what I see, too. One major economic is that expansion of the airport (AEX).

The location has been a blessing for the area and it has been an Achilles hill, too, in my opinion.

I think AEX is just one of many economic engines in the Cenla area. Alex has what too many other areas lack: Visionaries. I expect good things to happen there.

Location is major, no more that 3 hours to any other city in LA and in close proximity to MS.

I'd love to, but Uncle Sam has me in Arizona right now. Maybe when the enlistment is up! My Dad sends me things all the time. King cake will be here next week!
