House passes budget 63-37. - Slippy
The margin does not appear to be veto-proof. ...

House denies colleges tuition-setting authority (again). - Slippy
I really hate politicians. They act like they are doing a favor for "students and families," but what they are really doing is clinging to a power they should not possess in the first place. [link=(http://theadvocate.com/news/legislature/12418778-123/louisiana-house-refuses-to-give)]http://the...

This TV show "Married at First Sight".... oh my God. - Slippy
Have you people watched this? Total strangers getting married and then being followed around by cameras. These women are CRAZY. There's a reason they're 30 and still single. Crazier than a shithouse rat. ...

Bike people: need advice. - Slippy
Buying a new bike. My 27 year old Schwinn hybrid (which I got as a college graduation present) finally died. I'm in the market. I have a bad neck, so I need to ride in a more upright (erect) position. I am looking at "comfort" bikes. Any recommendations? Want to keep it sub-$500. I like the...

Do smokers know they stink? - Slippy
Was on the elevator with a man and lady returning from their smoke break, and I felt like I was snorting an ashtray. Is the reason why smokers date/marry other smokers is because they don't smell each other? ...

Legislature shows its anti-Jindal nuts with mostly veto-proof majorities. - Slippy

Harrah's is being a little bitch about the smoking ban. - Slippy
Laying off 400 people, and handing out lollipops to customers. [link=(http://www.theneworleansadvocate.com/news/12289967-172/harrahs-new-orleans-wants-to)]http://www.theneworleansadvocate.com/news/12289967-172/harrahs-new-orleans-wants-to[/link]...

What does "the Left" see as its endgame? - Slippy
Meaning.... If you told American liberals that they could have everything they want vis-a-vis government, the economy, taxation, civil rights, social justice, etc., what would the collective vision look like? We'll defer the question of whether their vision would be realistic....

Are legislators planning a veto override? - Slippy
I'm getting the weird feeling that they are. Ways and Means has moved a LOT of revenue raising bills to the floor. House leaders are dissing Jindal pretty openly, I think they are counting votes and are pretty confident in their ability to override. Of course, I could be wrong. But this i...

THE salient question in the La'El Collins situation is obvious. - Slippy
And it should be an easy one to answer. Was she carrying his baby? The universe of suspects changes dramatically if the answer is yes. If the answer is no, then he got royally screwed by the timing of this. A paternity test is a pretty quick process. I find it perplexing that he didn't volu...

Finebaum took up the "Auburn to the East" thing again today. - Slippy
It just makes too much sense to swap Auburn and Missouri, not only geographically but from the standpoint of competitive balance. It's all about the Alabama-Tennessee game. Nothing else. Nothing. The old timers don't want that game to go away. So because of this, Missouri finds itself in the ...

3 weeks in, and no apparent hope of solving LSU funding crisis. - Slippy
Jindal set to veto anything that smells faintly like the taint of a tax increase. We can talk about what should and should not be done, but most of the suggestions discussed on this board (like closing and merging certain schools) are not politically palatable and therefore outside the realm of...

Give me some recs for good casual restaurants in Chicago. - Slippy
Wife and I are taking a long weekend in May. Prefer something in River North or the Loop since we have to walk. We want to stay casual. Not interested in steakhouses. Been many times, just looking for some new ideas....

Today I have watched four Mexicans form, pour and finish my new patio. - Slippy
They also busted up part of my driveway and repoured it. They have worked like mules, and have done an excellent job. These men could be seen on every rooftop in New Orleans after Katrina. They more or less rebuilt this city. They come here to work, and they work. They don't think anybody owe...

What's the rule for pouring concrete when there is a chance of rain? - Slippy
I am having a patio poured on Friday. There is an 80% chance of rain according to some forecasts. If they pour it, and then it rains, then what? Is there a minimum curing time before it can get wet?...

Would 3-division setup work in the SEC? - Slippy
Add a 15th team. Have 3 divisions of 5 teams. Division champs with highest CFP rankings play for the title. It would allow for the stupid "traditional rivalries" to stay intact because of fewer divisional games. Florida Georgia South Carolina Kentucky New team (VT? NC State?) Alabam...

How come houses in poorer neighborhoods have so many cars in front of them? - Slippy
I drive down a street in a modest working class hood every day, and there are several of these small houses that have crazy numbers of cars in front of them. Today I counted seven (7) cars in front of one little house. 4 in the driveway, 2 on the street, and 1 in the yard....

Anybody here ever had neck surgery? - Slippy
Or maybe a family member? I need a 3-level fusion. Been having issues since 2010. Had a couple rounds of epidurals with only temporary relief. Think I might pull the trigger at Christmas. Cheers....
