There is nothing on Earth I love more than my 4 month old son. God forbid anything ever happen to him. I'm very open to anything to benefit children. I simply asked earlier how the project was being funded. This is the first I've heard about the project and wondered the logistics. No one can answer the question here and I should have known it wasn't something a Ranter could answer. I also happen to be in the commercial construction business and we do several million revenue a year in health care settings.

I have several different reasons to ask how the project was being funded. If OLOL is funding the project, the GC is already chosen. If it is going out for public bid as a state or federal job, we are not interested in bidding any portion of it. I'm certain the political discussion will occur later on when more information is released and the project gets more legs under it.

I am still confused about the "free" comments, but that will be determined at a later date.

Shaq is a living legend.

He's like the second coming of Elvis.

What an incredible human being!

How much of the bill is Shaq footing? It sounds like his name will be on the building and operated by OLOL. The "free" comment is troubling. Nothing is free. Who pays for the costs to operate the facility and health care costs? It sounds to me like either the state or John Q. Public. I doubt Jindal agrees to spend state funds for this and I'm 100% against John Q. Public's monies used for this.


Really? What an ass! God forbid if some of us more fortunate adults have to pay a little bit to help sick kids. Man, some people are just idiots.

No, you didn't. You also said you were opposed to funding, you Republican prevaricator.

No, this is exactly the kind of project that people should donate for and can easily get funded privately. Especially with Shaq raising money for it, this hospital will happen. It's better if it doesn't require public funding, for the whole community. It's the difference between a kid cleaning his room because he wants a clean room and being forced to clean it by his mom.

Nobody wants to donate their own money for, say, sewer improvements. There are legitimate needs for taxpayer funding of civic works, but this project shouldn't need it.

For what it's worth, I'll be very happy to contribute to the hospital, even though I only make $42,000 a year.

Don't know if this has already been mentioned, but the cost to build a hospital is about $1 million dollars per licensed bed, not cheap. I would imagine if all of this comes to fruition, Shaq will contribute some funds, but a ton of funds will have to come from other sources.
