Jefferson Parish officials are indeed worried about their future tax base. - Slippy
[quote]Jefferson also must contend with its image as a suburban parish competing with the metropolitan vibrancy of neighboring New Orleans. It's not an easy position when millennials are known for wanting to be in the middle of walkable, busy cities rather than quiet suburbs. "My parent's generat...

Is the governor the only person that can call a new Constitutional Convention? - Slippy
Why is JBE opposed to the idea? I realize he has only been on the job for a month, and he could change his mind. But I suspect he does not want to call a convention because he knows most of the delegates would be conservative (unlike the last call in 1972). It's the only way to fix this shite fr...

JBE just said something that was dead on balls accurate. - Slippy
If it's possible to cut our way out of this massive budget problem, how come it wasn't done during EIGHT YEARS of a Republican governor and legislature. (I'm a Republican, btw)...

Metairie Mardi Gras, like Metairie itself, is now irrelevant. - Slippy
Watching the Channel 4 crew act stupid at various locations on Tuesday morning. There is nobody in Metairie. It's dead. Somebody remind me why suburban Mardi Gras exists in the first place, other than your parents' and grandparents' dislike of black people and desire to separate themselves from ...

Is there anything that can be done to improve the PMAC? - Slippy
Took the boy to the game on Saturday. Overall a nice time, but I was frustrated to see that the concourses and restroom facilities are still nothing short of lame. I went to hundreds of basketball games during my time at LSU (including law school). I graduated in that building twice. I really ...

Advocate takes on LSU's budget problems today. - Slippy
Article is pretty factual, except for the part where she calls the architecture Spanish. (It's Italian.) There are too many pigs at the trough. Time to close the glorified high schools that are siphoning funds away from the flagship. [link=(http://theadvocate.com/news/neworleans/neworleansne...

The Advocate finally asks the question: Too many universities in La? - Slippy
I know many of you dyed-in-the-wool SUNO fans hate it when I bring up this topic. I'm just amazed that it has taken this long for the Advocate to write an article about it. People in NE Louisiana: Please defend the facts in this article. Please defend having three 4-year schools with separat...

I don't think I would want to win $1.5 billion all by myself. - Slippy
(And yes, I bought a few tickets.) First of all, despite all of your efforts to maintain anonymity, the media would hunt you down and expose your identity. There would be no hiding. Unlike people who win 50 or 100 million, you will be a celebrity. Your every move will be watched. Also, unlik...

Argued with a leftist today about China's single child policy. - Slippy
It has recently been lifted, but my friend actually defended it as good public policy..... good for the environment, good for population control and food supply, etc. I said I could not imagine a greater affront to human liberty than this. She actually gave me the "individual liberties have to ...

Does anything supernatural exist? - Slippy
God, souls, spooks, spirits, alternate dimensions, higher states of consciousness.... It's all on the table. Certainly there are things which are unknown to us, if not unknowable. Are we relegated to a purely material universe?...

Will today's college kids know how to fight a war when they are in charge? - Slippy
What will happen when we are gone and they are in charge of our country and national security, and world events converge to require military action on the part of the United States? Will they have the will? Will they have the knowledge? The stomach? The perserverance? I just can't imagine a...

Beards and skinny pants. - Slippy
Either I have been in a coma for the last decade, or just not paying attention. But yesterday I walked 3 blocks downtown and counted no less than 20 guys with beards, almost all under the age of 30. At what point did we go from "shave everywhere" to a celebration of facial hair? And how many...

On the private money vs. public money question.... - Slippy
Of the "big money donors" who put together the $20 million to buy Les out... Who are these folks? Do any of them contribute to the academic side of the university? I'm sure some of them do. But are most of them non-alumni? Are they people who just want access to the program, low TAF numbers...

A full-on spread would work at LSU. - Slippy
Lots of people saying they don't want a "gimmicky" offnse and that it doesn't fit our personality, yada yada yada. A lot of this depends on how you define "spread" and what you do out of it. Florida won two championships basically running out of a spread. Baylor throws for a gazillion yards a...

You people invest way too much of your happiness in LSU football. - Slippy
Go see a movie. Plant a garden. Have sex with an actual girl. But seriously I am taking a year off. I don't need this shite. If you want my season tickets next year, let me me know....

LSU and the Alabama fixation. - Slippy
I am an LSU alum, and I have a kid at Alabama. I have been anti-Miles, but I'm more or less at peace with the way things went down last night. Perhaps it is a good first step toward overcoming the Alabama fixation and getting this anvil from around our neck. LSU fans believe Bama stole our cham...

Serious question. I'm mostly asking Catholics, I suppose, but I would be interested in how the irreligious would deal with it....
