That's nothing new, but this week's reports are. It's time for the final weekly edition of All Things New Orleans before we start broadcasting twice a week.

But Republican Anh "Joseph" Cao breaks more records than this. Mr. Cao is the first Vietnamese-American to serve in the House of Representatives, and he joins just over a dozen Congressman who were born outside of the United States.</p> Tue, 09 Dec 2008 09:59:02 +0000 Eve Abrams 1522 at http://wwno.org Congressman-elect Joseph Cao's first week http://wwno.org/post/congressman-elect-joseph-caos-first-week <p class="legacy-audio-url"> <div class="audio-container"> <div id="jp-interface-53d8a1c181b5c-" class="jp-interface"> <div id="post-audio-53d8a1c181b5c-" class="jp-player" jp-instance="53d8a1c181b5c-"></div> <div class="jp-controls column"> <div class="jp-progress"> <div class="jp-seek-bar"> <div class="jp-play-bar"></div> </div> </div><!-- end jp-progress --> </div><!-- end jp-controls --> <div class="playpause column"> <a href="http://stream.publicbroadcasting.net/production/mp3/wwno/local-wwno-802926.mp3" class="jp-play">Listen</a> <a class="jp-pause"></a> </div><!-- playpause --> <div class="jp-time-holder column"> <div class="jp-custom-current-time"></div> <div class="jp-custom-duration"></div> </div><!-- jp-time-holder --> <div id="slider"></div> </div><!-- .jp-interface --> </div><!-- container --> </p> <p>Congressman-elect Joseph Cao is using his first week after being elected in the Second District to thank supporters and meet local leaders.</p> Tue, 09 Dec 2008 09:47:33 +0000 Eileen Fleming 1521 at http://wwno.org 2nd Congressional District Candidates http://wwno.org/post/2nd-congressional-district-candidates <p class="legacy-audio-url"> <div class="audio-container"> <div id="jp-interface-53d89b8534bb6-" class="jp-interface"> <div id="post-audio-53d89b8534bb6-" class="jp-player" jp-instance="53d89b8534bb6-"></div> <div class="jp-controls column"> <div class="jp-progress"> <div class="jp-seek-bar"> <div class="jp-play-bar"></div> </div> </div><!-- end jp-progress --> </div><!-- end jp-controls --> <div class="playpause column"> <a href="http://stream.publicbroadcasting.net/production/mp3/wwno/local-wwno-800863.mp3" class="jp-play">Listen</a> <a class="jp-pause"></a> </div><!-- playpause --> <div class="jp-time-holder column"> <div class="jp-custom-current-time"></div> <div class="jp-custom-duration"></div> </div><!-- jp-time-holder --> <div id="slider"></div> </div><!-- .jp-interface --> </div><!-- container --> </p> <p>On Saturday's election for Representative of Louisiana's Second Congressional District, three men hope to unseat 18-year incumbent William Jefferson: Libertarian Gregory Kahn, Republican Ahn 'Joseph' Cao, and Green Party candidate Malik Rahim.</p> Fri, 05 Dec 2008 15:54:14 +0000 Eve Abrams 1519 at http://wwno.org
