  • There’s a children’s book, “The Goose That Almost Got Cooked,” which tells the story of a Canadian goose who takes a break from her flight south for the winter to rest at a lovely farm where the other geese are fed three meals a day. The Canadian goose thinks this is the life until discovering one of the other geese missing one day and the farmer enjoying a familiar looking dish for dinner. The Canadian goose ultimately escapes the farm before taking that one-way trip to the farmer’s pot. Louisiana taxpayers, however, were not so lucky this legislative session.
