Here's what former governors have to say about Looziana Political Cartoons (from back cover of the book):

"Fred has covered Louisiana politics with wit and insight for many years. It was my privilege to help provide him with so much good material with which to work." -- Bobby Jindal, Governor 2008-2015

"Fred Mulhearn's cartoons are often provocative, upsetting, annoying, amusing, insightful, uplifting, and funny -- sometimes all in the same cartoon! I have often laughed at his humor, especially when I wasn't the subject of his joke." -- Kathleen Babineaux Blanco, Governor 2004-2008

"Having been the subject of Fred's cartoons as governor of Louisiana, I always enjoyed the humor and collected many of them in a scrapbook." -- M.J. Foster Jr., Governor 1996-2004

"Fred could find the humor in everyday life. I laughed in spite of myself." -- Buddy Roemer, Governor 1988-1992

"Now that I'm ninety years old and have served this state for over fifty years, you'd think people would be tired of reading about me -- but that's not the case.
This book contains cartoons you'll enjoy about my sixteen years as governor (and about some other politicians as well). Seriously, it is a treasure of cartoons and will make a great addition to your library -- buy it." -- Edwin W. Edwards, Governor 1972-1980, 1984-1988, 1992-1996

Life in Looziana is a whole book of Fred's cartoons about what makes Louisiana different, unique, and sometimes just plain weird.
They're available in Louisiana bookstores. You can order by clicking here, or by calling 225-664-2255, or go to Amazon.
