The Bootstrap is a website devoted to news and commentary about North Louisiana. No liberal bias. No fluff. No political correctness. Whenever possible, we’ll post stuff you won’t find in the area’s other news outlets.

We accept submissions of columns, videos, or podcasts….but we only publish them if we think they’re interesting and responsible.

The Bootstrap is a companion to the popular Facebook group Ruston Rants ®. 

The look and feel of the The Bootstrap, like Ruston Rants did, will no doubt change and evolve over time.
