| Tiger Rant|| re: Ben McDonald picks UL-L as the best Louisiana team - TigerattheU on 4/18/14 at 2:16 pm|
I'd be inclined to pick a team other than LSU when it's a close call because of the position as a national analyst. He always circles back to LSU anyway on those ESPNU shows. I think he does a good job....

The 23% was hopelessly dumb, but I do think it would be helpful for sober-driving campaigns if BAC was adjusted to be expressed in larger numbers. For example, you are over the limit at 80 and there's mandatory jail time at 150. "He had to get his stomach pumped; he was at 290, almost 300." Would...

We saw some of Black Pistol Fire earlier in the day, and they were really good. I liked walking around the Old State Capitol grounds; I was expecting the main stage to be the town square area. Actually had the most fun when we walked down Third Street and watched a local group on the Roux House pa...

100.3 FM in Ft. Walton is The Ticket and their website says that timeslot is the Jim Rome Show. Rome tweeted two hours ago that he was interviewing Gary Andersen. So there will be an archive/podcast of it at some point (if not now, but I don't see one)....

I went to it last year and I've been to many of the free concerts downtown in the past year without a problem. Last week the beers at Fest for All were $3, so not too bad. Also saw that Blues Fest has VIP tickets for a pretty reasonable $50 if you want a private area....

It would be cool (although not a game changer) to keep it on the counter and scan every box I'm about to throw away. Then have it all in a list when I'm ready to shop again. Amazon would probably recommend related products to the ones I'd already tried. ...

It looks like they will sell to individuals but are more interested in contracts with the university. So maybe you'd lease the units and not transport them yourself? But not having a choice in the location seems like it would be an issue for most tailgaters.
I like the "observation deck." I've...

I lived there for a year and lived in Magnolia Trace. Nice pool and common area there. For bars, Rags to Riches was okay. I liked walking to Sharkeys but it closed. Most people in Alexandria have a set of friends and they rotate hanging out at each other's houses. So single nightlife is not there. I...

He couldn't write a positive story and ignore the critical piece he wrote less than a month ago.

You might have good reason for your opinion on...

I haven't thought about the distinctions in a while, but manslaughter applies to a crime that occurs suddenly after a provocation. Like if these two had the fight right there in the bar. Here, the pitcher had a long time to cool down before the game the next day.

Most of the statutes are only written with a maximum penalty. It will say a "Whoever commits the crime of _______ shall be fined not more than ______ or imprisoned for not more than ____, or both." Minimum fines hamstring the judiciary because they'd be forced to impose the minimum even if they fe...
