A friend of mine, let's call him Kalunda, bought a truck from a guy he didn't know and turns out now he can't get the car registered in his name because the guy he bought it from never had the title transferred into his own name and also owes some taxes on it.

Despite this board being so conservative it seems like Jindal still gets blasted regularly. Can he take credit for the Nucor project in St. James? I've been reading up on it and it's hard to see a downside. I know they gave Nucor a hell of a package but it seems almost certain that the net outcom...

Can anyone actually explain how the process works of the networks picking the games?
I know CBS gets 1st pick, but do they get to pick 2:30 v. 7:30? Also, I'm pretty sure ESPN gets to pick the #1 game once a year - do they decide this before the year?...
