"Partaking in the drink specials at Fred's based on how many points Chris Jackson scored! It was on when he went over 50!" Indeed, it was. Those were some really good times. Damn, I'm getting old. :lol:...

"My posts should be graded on a curve with lower benchmark standards" Given the quantity and quality of your posts, you provide a less-than-persuasive argument for any sort of affirmative action. :cheers:...

"You absolutely do NOT get it. And your ego can't be so enormous that you imagine every thread is specifically about you. If you don't want to engage the topic, then ignore the thread. And as I told you recently, there is no future in being a self-appointed Board Nanny. We will all post what we ...

"But lets not parade some fairy tale that "everybody starts at the same place," which is hogwash." Amen to that. I prefer the much more useful approach of playing the hand that you're dealt to the best of your ability. People of all races and ethnicities who have done so are the ones who improv...

re: More White Privilege? ( personal story) - N.O. via West-Cal
Responding to no one in particular, my take is that most of us probably see the world through a racial prism to SOME degree, the question being "how much?" I don't know that there is anything inherently wrong with it because we all have and even need numerous paradigms to inform, order, and streaml...

"Another big priority is fixing the tax code. At the very least it needs to be simplified down to just 4 levels of income but the ideal (to me, at least) would be a flat tax" This would do little to simplify the tax code. Deductions, exclusions, credits, what is and isn't taxable in the first pl...

"We got screwed bad on the Dante charge.." Huge freakin' call and very sketchy. Could have just as easily been a block and should have been a no-call. There was very little contact and a whole lot of flop. ...

"To be fair about that, the public calls us for everything is seems." A fair point and probably related to overcriminalization. We get the government we deserve, I suppose. ...

re: Girl sues parents for college tuition - N.O. via West-Cal
I just read the yahoo piece. I had assumed that there was some contractual or quasi-contractual theory that the girl was using. Instead, the article on Yahoo said that divorced parents - but not married parents - must contribute to college educations (presumably assuming some ability to pay) in NJ....

re: Drug raid in rural Georgia ends in a homeowner dead, no drugs found... - N.O. via West-Cal
"can we get some real national media attention on these no knock drug raids?" Amen to that. I don't know anything about this particular case, but no-knock warrants are way overrused and are often executed at night which naturally causes the chance for something like this incident to go up. Why,...

"I can't remember which guard was on Ellis at the time." I can't either; as is often the case, I am multitasking with kids and such while watching so I try to be careful drawing too many conclusions whem my sample size of closely watched stretches can be small. On the last Ellis drive, I di...

"Apparently Davis called the switch then hesitating, which allowed Ellis an easy lane. They really shouldn't have been switching so much, in my opinion." Thanks for the response, although I will disagree with you on THAT switch. Ellis was carving us up enough and by switching we might have gotte...

"The report is absolutely politically motivated, and that's an issue, but what it revealed is troublesome. Most anyone that was paying attention knew we were torturing prisoners, so the meat of the report shouldn't be that surprising, except for maybe the extent of it." I could not agree more. ...

re: We played a great game. - N.O. via West-Cal
"We played good, but our defending the pick and roll sucked ass" I only got to see the second half, but I agree with this. Too often the dribbler was allowed to do whatever he wanted. On the critical Ellis drive and teardrop, what happened there? It looked like the Pels called switch but the...

I agree with you, Shorty, but as is so often the case these days, the report was issued in a way that makes it easy to attack. Not bipartisan, probably didn't interview the right people, etc. No one seems to be "rising above" in the current political climate and I find it depressing....

re: Letter to Alleva (ok, I scratched the word "open", sensitive types) - N.O. via West-Cal
"Why do you care what someone else makes?" A little differnet here. Many of us on this board purchase season tix or in other ways support the program monetarily and that includes coachin salaries. A portion, albeit small, of Miles' salaray is paid by the taxpayers. These are different than norm...
