re: Best LSU quarterback in the history - N.O. via West-Cal
"But dont forget Mauck was pretty effective as a sophmore." He was effective but we did not lean heavily on him as we relied very heavily on the running game after that. It really was too bad that he went down near the end of the beatdown in Gainesville as the team really struggled after that, a...

re: Best LSU quarterback in the history - N.O. via West-Cal
"I guess its close, but i'd take Mauck if i could choose either one." Reasonable minds can differ. Also, regarding Mauck being a junior and Flynn a senior, I just happen to think Mauck's significant edge in playing time as a sophormore was of more value than Flynn's just hanging around anoth...

"Got a problem with the mom just leaving a kid that young there. Should not have been arrested, or family separated though." This line of thought - disagreeing with someone's actions but NOT believing that it is a cause for government intervention - is becoming increasingly rare in our countr...

re: Best LSU quarterback in the history - N.O. via West-Cal
"Mauck is better then Flynn period." I disagree. Perhaps comparable QB's but Mauck played with a much better defense and didn't really produce much in the biggest games (Ole Miss win, NCG win). Both had excellent running games but Flynn and the offense rolled up big points in wins over higher en...

re: How will Rand Paul defend his statements about the Civil Rights Act? - N.O. via West-Cal
My guess is that Paul will continue to clarify his statements in the manner he already has. It will not be the time to appease libertarian purists but rather to emphasize that "libertarian conservatism" as he calls is consistent with civil rights and can work quite well thank you alongside the 50 ye...

re: Best LSU quarterback in the history - N.O. via West-Cal
"Just can't compare Jones to Russell or Mett. Very difficult." true, it's hard, but one thing that would be interesting is to read how NFL scouts evaluated them in their respective eras and then to ask who would have been picked first if they had come out in the same years. Due to size differenc...

re: Sammy Martin - 1980s - N.O. via West-Cal
Aside from being white, he had very little in common with Hester. As a runner, he was used much more like Holiday - a speed back with little power. He was also outstanding out of the backfield or even lining up as a receiver. In the pros, he was a KR and backup WR. He could fly. Not fast for a w...

re: Mexican judge denies motion to release Marine. - N.O. via West-Cal
"Why just him? What about the other Americans rotting in Mexican prisons for pretty much the exact same thing?" The "same" thing? DOS should work to secure faster/more favorable resolutions, and from what I am told by a former State Deparment employee, this is relatively common, even in cases th...

re: Why only 10 years for Nagin? - N.O. via West-Cal
"let's get back to how hilarious the millions part is, are you even aware of the specifics of his indictment and conviction?" Whoa, now. Was he he actually convicted of bilking millions? He can't be sentenced based on what he "probably" did or what you think he did. Like VOR (that's funny to typ...

re: Mexican judge denies motion to release Marine. - N.O. via West-Cal
"Do you think Mexico shouldn't get to make and enforce its own laws?" Of course, I do. But as I understand the facts of this case, the Marine made a wrong turn, was unable to turn around and then declared to the border agents that he had the guns. If am wrong about the facts, I am sure I will b...

re: False Balance = stifling of debate - N.O. via West-Cal
The general notion that equal time is not always appropriate has been out there for a long time, and we probably all agree with that point of view when you get to the extremes. For example, do any of us really believe that holocaust deniers should be given equal time when discussing that tragic pie...

re: Why only 10 years for Nagin? - N.O. via West-Cal
Nagin got a good draw with the sentencing judge. Berrigan is smart and I have never heard a word, even of pure gossip, that she is corrupt. But it's pretty well known that she is quite liberal when compared to other judges in the Eastern District. I look forward to reading a little more about w...

"When you say plants, what exactly does this plant do? If my above assumption is correct, does it have something to do with the extraction of resources? Refining them?" - More technical distinctions can be drawn, but the term "plants" refers to both refineries, which take crude oil and refine thi...

re: What could Rand accomplish as President with an R controlled Congress? - N.O. via West-Cal
One ENORMOUS thing he could do regardless of the composition of Congress is repeal Obama's executive orders and directives to federal agencies. This alone could do wonders. Energy, trade, and even much of the ACA are within the president's SOLO powers. Whatever Obama did with his "phone and pen" c...

"Good article but not likely to resonate with those who should be listening the most." Well put, HC.

Thanks for the kind words, badlands. And for what it's worth, I want to emphasize that I truly believe what I wrote.
