Honore joins Jim in the studio to discuss a plethora of issues and topics. In his usual passionate, loud and outspoken manner, the General talks about leading the Green Army, a loose network of environmental groups which tackles environmental issues such as saltwater intrusion in the Baton Rouge aquifer, the sinkhole at Bayou Corne, coastal erosion, and wetlands preservation. He touches on Louisiana's HIV problem, the seafood industry, and "holding Louisiana politicians accountable" for what they say and do, and specifically what they don't. The General wraps up the show by chiming in on Russia's invasion of the southern Ukrainian peninsula of Crimea and&nbsp; what might ensue as a result of Putin's actions.</p><p> Wed, 05 Mar 2014 16:22:36 +0000 Jim Engster 23344 at http://wrkf.org WEDNESDAY: Lt.
