re: How do other universities (other than lsu) see Southern University Grads - MetArl15
I was aware you meant Southern of Baton Rouge. I assumed you find some Southern-BR grads working in Nola as well, but perhaps my experience would only be an issue if it included time working in BR....

[quote]Unless an HBCU degree is from Howard, Morehouse or Spelman[/quote]This. I grew up in New Orleans and worked there a few summers during college. While I admit the small sample size, never once in these jobs did I encounter a Southern grad. I have interacted with Southern and Grambling gra...

re: Bolognese - add chicken liver or not? - MetArl15
I lived in Bologna, Italy for a year and always thought the best and most authentic bolognese sauces did not add chicken livers. Just a personal preference, but in the region, the best versions excluded liver....

re: How do you define "middle class," and what policies will help this demo grow? - MetArl15
[quote]Both parties say they want a strong, robust "middle class,"[/quote]I believe it's just a modern terminology for the everyman. I don't believe politicians want to grow this class necessarily (though some likely want to move poverty-stricken individuals into this class), but they believe by pr...

re: White Ex-DC Official sues city: claims racial firing and racial slurs used - MetArl15
While the racist remarks from his co-workers are abhorrent, I am guessing his dismissal was more based on bringing corruption and mismanagement to light than it was racism. Howland was a leader mired in controversy and I believe he wanted to stave off the inevitable as long as possible. He resig...

re: Should LF7 Play Both Ways? - MetArl15
[quote]If LF7 playing defense isn't the best guarantee for securing the Heisman, I must ask the genuises of the rant, what is the best solution?[/quote]Develop a semblance of a passing game so that linebackers and safeties can't crowd the box and limit running room for Fournette. The more balanced ...

re: What will it take for the West to take the threat of Islam seriously? - MetArl15
[quote]But support is way too high in many locations[/quote]Agreed. It's hugely problematic and does make skillful dealings with the Islamic world that much more complicated. I don't have a solution here, and the word choice issue I've discussed certainly isn't a panacea. I do, however, think it'...

re: What will it take for the West to take the threat of Islam seriously? - MetArl15
[quote]So you would disagree with domestic identification of "returning veterans", "gun rights advocates", and "patriot organizations" as sources of domestic threats? You agree this terminology diminishes rather than improves this debate? [/quote]Absolutely yes. That's not to say some of those wh...

re: 2015 Tour de France Thread - MetArl15
Started watching the TdF in the late 80s. My favorite rider will always be Greg LeMonde, but I had a lot of love for Pedro Delgado and Sean Kelly. For whatever reason, I could never stand Ulrich in the 90s. I always thought Laurent Fignon was an insufferable douche as well....

[quote]100% of legally aborted fetuses would say "Don't abort me!" if they could speak. [/quote]You sure about that? We're dealing in unprovable hypotheticals, so it's just as likely those fetuses aborted because they were facing a lifetime of pain or mental incapacity would choose to pass on a fut...
