The independent journalist also writes a weekly syndicated column that appears in 16 daily and weekly newspapers around the state. Maginnis is the author of two books on Louisiana politics--The Last Hayride in 1984 and Cross to Bear in 1992--and he frequently comments on Louisiana politics for the national media.
