re: 90 NYC Schools failed to pass a Single Black or Hispanic Student on State Exams - dinosaur
I am a generation away from you. My father grew up in a shack in the woods. He was the first in his family to graduate from high school and go on to college. Everyone in my generation, including cousins, went on to college. From being dirt poor to doctors and lawyers and engineers. The single t...

re: Mary Landrieu's Louisiana residency being challenged. - dinosaur
If something like this is enough to make you vote for Mary, you are not making an informed decision. The point, however petty, is that she has drifted away from the Louisiana mainstream and become more of a Washington. D.C. person in thought and attitude. Will it make a difference? I think not, b...

re: Last time hype = actual results - dinosaur
I can't recall any recruit on any college team that was so hyped. Even Hershel Walker was not expected to be superman as a freshman. That is not to reflect on anyone's actual ability, and running back is usually the easiest position to just step into, but that the expectations may be too much for ...

re: Tony Barnhart: "LSU with lots of losses on the defensive side." - dinosaur
I suspect that defensive line play will be slightly better than last year. We were thin at tackle and our ends lost contain quite a few times early in the year, but that got better. Hopefully that is fixed. A little better depth will improve things at tackle, even if the starters are not quite as...

re: Poli Board, do you want to engage in a socio-political experiment? - dinosaur
I am a Democrat and easily old enough but running for any office is not for me. But your idea is interesting and deserves support. I agree that the two main parties have moved away from the working young people, who normally are the people who make the nation prosperous. Mary is too tied to the...

re: Elon Musk calls AI "more dangerous than nukes." - dinosaur
I just don't know. A future problem maybe. I was one who laughed at the idea that people would want a computer at work. Damn, those things were huge and needed their own air-conditioned room (this from back in the late 70's) besides all the difficulty in key punch cards. I would say it is ...

re: "Stop blaming black parents for underachieving kids" - dinosaur
It took me a while to learn it, but there is nothing more true than that line: life is about choices. Bad choices lead to bad situations. We tend to want to treat the symptoms, throwing money at schools, etc., while we continue to have policies that encourage poor lifestyle choices, so the p...

re: This is why I'm against Common Core. - dinosaur
I agree 100%. It seems like every few years there is a new "standard" or system a whole new set of books have to be purchased, and a set of kids have to learn pretty much the same things but in a new way. The school book industry, with new instructional manuals, workbooks, etc. will make big bucks...

re: Early thoughts on LSU vs Wisconsin - dinosaur
I expect to see a lot of running from both teams, eating up the clock, resulting in a low scoring game unless someone makes a lot of errors. I think a 17-14 outcome, with whatever team's quarterback plays best being the winner. This is not likely to be a blow out by either team, absent special t...

re: John Chavis Says Welter Had One of the Better Springs He Has Seen - dinosaur
Sometimes the message means something else, like maybe the other guys with a little more athletic ability didn't understand the defense enough to know what to do. But sometimes it takes time on the field to quicken that reaction time. We have had other guys go from not so great as juniors to outs...

re: The scandal of fiddled global warming data - dinosaur
I for one am skeptical about global warming because of all of the variables in the equation that "proves" man made global warming. I am more inclined to be less skeptical about GMOs because there are fewer variables/estimates involved and little scientific evidence showing hazards of the GMO. T...

re: Youth Coaches - Cutting a Player - dinosaur
WFT? Is he cutting because he has too many on the team or because he wants better players? How is he hurting the better players, unless winning is more important than everything else. In youth sports, winning is important, but there is more to life than winning at youth sports or being able to s...

re: Youth Coaches - Cutting a Player - dinosaur
You need to ask yourself why you are coaching, and I don't mean it as a sarcastic or negative comment. If a chance to win is more important than friendship with the parents, then cut the kids and don't look back. You can't have both. I used to coach kids and decided that 10 years later the pare...

re: Jalen Mills Arrested for Battery - dinosaur
I don't know what your experience includes relative to media, but even "friendly" media wants to be first with a story, will hype it up even it they know facts that tend to discredit the claims, and can't really be trusted to "update". I am sure that I don't know what happened, and most of us are i...

re: Jalen Mills Arrested for Battery - dinosaur
Upvoted you. Ordinary people don't understand how often the original claims are later found to have not been exactly and completely true. In a situation like this, you have to wait for the process to work. On the other hand, a lot of those who want to punish the kid will claim that there was som...

re: Jalen Mills Arrested for Battery - dinosaur
Not wanting to talk to police is not evidence of guilt but not getting an attorney to deal with this immediately was stupid. Having a "if I ignore it, it will go away" attitude, is dumb. On the other hand, it sounds to me like the claim is that he was arrested because he would not talk to the...

re: Jalen Mills Arrested for Battery - dinosaur
Knocked out and stitches is second degree battery, a felony. But still, I suggest that we don't rush to judgment based on a claim made in an arrest warrant. That is sort of why we have trials, where everyone's side can come out....

re: Jalen Mills Arrested for Battery - dinosaur
I deal with this a lot. I try to get the law enforcement people to exercise judgment, which in some cases is asking for the impossible. If the victim seems in a position where she could be in danger, arrest. If the parties are not in such a position, like the bad guy has gone home and is asleep i...
