The complaint is about the heading on page 6D of the Monday, April 2, 2012, paper. It reads, “Voodoo, Africa’s Religion,” although the first line of the third paragraph of the article reads, “The reality is that Voodoo is a traditional Afro-Haitian religion . . .” So, why the title when it is so inaccurate?
I note that the article appears to be fairly written, except that it downplays the influence of Catholicism in Voodoo, but the title is wrong. Voodoo has no association with any part of Africa.
My applause is for printing the very informative column by Melinda Deslatte on page 5B of the April 30, 2012, paper. She explains Louisiana’s budget problems clearly: $1.4 billion in corporate tax exemptions. You might do an exposé on tax exemptions and what the state gets in return.
