It would have been nice had Mr. Robertson himself mentioned (or bothered to
obtain) the number of vacancies in both separate houses and duplex
properties available in the parish that are already available for rent.

And it continues to surprise me with the large number of section 8
houses/duplexes/apts that say sec 8 okay. I thought the number of section 8
vouchers for St. Bernard was both limited and closed, yet you can go onto
craig's list and the local papers and continues to see listings that say
"section 8 okay". Where are all of these coming from? Are the doing this
under the table or something?
