The Bootstrap

News & Commentary About Life in North Louisiana


The Bootstrap launched in 2019 and is a “safe space” for news and commentary that might otherwise get our contributors put in Facebook jail. The Bootstrap got its name from North Louisiana resident Zachary Huffman. The logic being Louisiana is shaped like a boot. If New Orleans is the toe of the boot then North Louisiana is where you’ll find the strap of the boot.

The Bootstrap accepts anonymous tips (provided we can independently verify what you’re telling us).  The Bootstrap also accepts written commentaries and newsworthy videos….provided it’s responsible and we think enough people might find it interesting.

Folks, it’s all about getting out news and commentary that the establishment folks at Facebook and in the mainstream media aren’t otherwise comfortable with.

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