Adras La Borde

Adras La Borde

Adras Paul LaBorde, I (December 12, 1912 – March 6, 1993), was a reporter, managing editor, and columnist for the Alexandria Daily Town Talk, the largest newspaper in Central Louisiana. His career stretched from the mid-1940s into the early 1990s. An authority on 20th century Louisiana government and politics, he wrote some ten thousand columns under the title "The Talk of the Town," a play on the name of the newspaper. LaBorde wrote endlessly about the strengths and the foibles of Louisiana's vast array of determined politicians, each of whom tried to convince voters that "good times" would arrive if only they could hold the elective office in question or secure their election promises.
