From the desk of Matt Williams: Coming up this morning

Do you consider yourself "very" religious? What does that even mean and where does Louisiana fall on that list? You know how people love a good list. Looks like our neighbors in Mississippi take the title. We'll give you a look. For all you crawfish fans out there, chances are there are a few around here, there is some good news. Looks like production is up as the season moves along. What does that mean for the prices? Check out our DOTD Traffic Watch cameras before heading out today to make sure there aren't any delays on your route.
