I've got to start this with a complete disclosure. I was not born or raised in Bossier. I'm a North Shreveport/Blanchard guy, but after twenty years in the Bossier/Haughton area, I feel I've at least earned some kind of honorary distinction.

Sure, Bossier gets a bad rap for a number of things. The water system could certainly use some help. A good dose of brain eating amoeba will do that for you. We're always hearing "there's nothing to do" but that's just not true.

We don't have a professional sports team. Yes, being part of Louisiana, we have our share of crooked politicians, but day in and day out, the people of Bossier are hard working, honest, giving, loving and dedicated to the southern way of life.

With that in mind, I've decided that we have a number of unwritten rules that you just have to commit to memory if you're new to the area.
