oceanblueusvi: He likes people, especially governors: Francis Thompson to be longest-serving legislator

TylerEnglander: To add a little more context to the person Francis Thompson is, whenever I call him to ask him about a vote or an issue from my out-of-state phone number, Thompson answers the phone by saying, "Is this Tyler or Joe Biden?"

tegbridges: He likes people, especially governors. And that has allowed him to shower his poor, rural district in northeast Louisiana. Rep. Francis Thompson has served 48 years and counting

RuralChrisLee: Francis Thompson is truly the last of his kind. A conservative Democrat representing a rural, now predominantly Republican region in Northeast Louisiana. He’s in his 48th year in the legislature, tied for longest service ever. A truly fascinating read:

a_quill_a: Let us always remember that telescope and microscope in all the range of their discoveries have not uncovered the existence of anything greater than humanity itself. The most massive star of the Milky Way is not so wonderful as the smallest human child. Francis Thompson

isidro_li: Poor Poetry has rocked himself to sleep: Upon the heavy blossom of her lips Hangs the bee Musing; nigh her lids eclipse Each half-occulted star beneath that lies; And, in the contemplation of those eyes- Passionless passion, wild tranquillities. — Francis Thompson

spectator: Cardinal Zen and Pope Francis’s disturbing pact with Beijing ✍️ Damian Thompson

spectator: No one doubts that Cardinal Zen, who stepped down as bishop of Hong Kong as long ago as 2009, is a source of severe diplomatic embarrassment to the Holy See. But it has only itself to blame ✍️ Damian Thompson

spectator: ‘Cardinal Zen went to Rome to tell Pope Francis how worried he was about the Vatican’s 2018 pact with Beijing, which gives the Communist party the power to appoint Catholic bishops. The Pope refused to see him.’ ✍️ Damian Thompson

ByVinGallo: 6:26 left in the second. Hawi Cook-Francis flips momentum in the frame with a goal. Canton is hit with a 2-0 run after building its own. The Bears’ Ethan Francey responds immediately at 5:56. He pushes a shot past Thompson while falling down to make it 7-4, Shamrocks.
