        The Friday edition of "Dateline" involved a review of the policing
situation in Louisiana on I-10.  Quite a number of drivers had been stopped
and hassled in one way or another.

        Negative publicity has contributed to improvementsn at various
levels.
Legislators in Baton Rouge revamped related statutes.  Parish law
enforcement is being investigated by the FBI.  The State Auditor is
continuing to squeeze officials for information about the uses of forfeited
funds.

        Overall, the treatment underscores the notion that  avenues of
change are not closed.
