Default Another Trivia Question...........................

Greetings From New Orleans ,
Today , the 27th.of October , I am on a south bound chemical tanker , the good ship , Stolt Jade , out of St. Gabriel , La. and for one reason or another , I stated wondering just how many state capitals are located on the Mississippi and or the Western River system ? In all honestly , I had to check to make sure but I think that you will be a bit surprised . It just may be more than you first think ! Also , one more bit of rather useless trivia is the fact that the Louisian state captial building located in Baton Rouge , was built during the term of former Gov. Huey P. Long , and as his inflated ego demanded , the te sate caital building is just over 450' feet high , the highest state capital building in the nation . Are you surpirsed ??
Smooth Sailing !
Ted Davisson
