Letter: Jindal takes cheap shot to aid himself

Bobby Jindal is back in town! He is using the Manning football family Passing Academy to gain good publicity, which he badly needs. Allocating $1.2 million in improvements for the Nicholls State University football stadium is admirable.

However, one wonders how many people would have health-care benefits for that amount. And, how much were his cuts to Nicholls academics? Using Louisiana’s love of football for good will is a cheap shot — but somehow, one expects such from our governor.
