Scott Alexander had a good interview with Dale Brown today (though it's hard to have a bad interview with Dale).
Sorry to hijack the thread, but anyone have any idea what's up with 106.1 The Ticket in NOLA? It's been dead air for a couple days now, and nothing comes across the stream either....

Not sure if serious.
Brechtel is a stone's throw from Lakewood and used to be a decent option, considering it was $10-$12 for a round of golf, but fell into disrepair post-Katrina once the irrigation system died and has been closed for years....

Vikings gave up a 5th to move up one spot. A 3rd for 7 spots to fill a need with the best available at that position seems reasonable to me.
Anyone else see him as a taller, leaner Sproles? He's got the moves like Sprolesy baby. :nana:...

Karr's a good school by NOLA standards - the principal was asst principal when I went there in the 80's (Jr High, before the days of ankle bracelets). 60% of grads go on to 4-year college, and a good education can be had for those in horors/gifted/AP courses. It's slated for a new building soon (c...

Haven't been to either since Katrina but looking to break habits and mix things up. Likely most of us will be getting seafood, though I've know Lakeview has great burgers.
