re: Carly Fiorina Slams Cruz - lsuprof
It is very common for a VP pick to have said some uncharitable things about the presidential candidate during the campaign. No big deal....

re: The 1 in 5 girls in college will be raped stuff - lsuprof
The one-in-five figure is a fantasy. The only way to get to that figure is to define sexual assault so broadly that it is divorced from any reasonable definition of the term. There are sexual assaults that occur on college campuses, but the crying wolf endemic in the one-in-five figure diminishes th...

re: Barack Obama is the worst President of my lifetime. - lsuprof
Agreed--Obama is the worst president in my lifetime. You have to work really, really hard to beat Jimmy Carter as the worst president, but Obama has earned it....

re: University of Kansas professor keeps job after using racial slur in class - lsuprof
I have been following this story closely and have found it deeply disturbing. The professor in question used this language as part of an educational discussion, and there was no evidence whatsoever that this was based on any kind of racial animus. She should have been cleared immediately and not pla...

re: Obama slams liberal PC culture on college campus... - lsuprof
Even a hint that President Obama is a stalwart against political correctness on campus is a joke. This is the president whose Department of Education has brought us the "Dear Colleague" letter, misinterpreting Title IX to require a change in the legal standards for dealing with campus sexual assault...

re: Could they adopt new rules for the next debates??? any suggestions??? - lsuprof
1. There should be no studio audience at any debate. The applause, jeering, and other audience reactions are a distraction and diminish the quality of the discussion. 2. Candidates should not be able to interrupt each other. When one candidate is speaking, the microphones to the other candidates ...

re: Federal PA judge rules you can't freely record police - lsuprof
This is a ridiculous opinion that won't stand on appeal. The police are in a public place doing the work that they are paid to do by taxpayers. A person sees the police and starts filming. The person is not interfering with the work of the police officers; if he/she was interfering, then the police ...

re: Scalia's death signals the most important issue in this election. - lsuprof
In the short run (i.e., for 2016), no Obama nominee will be confirmed by the U.S. Senate. Indeed, it is highly unlikely that an Obama nominee will even come to a floor vote. I can't imagine an Obama nominee who would warrant consideration by the Republican senate. It is not hyperbole to say that...

re: Caroline Fayard enters Senate race running like JBE - lsuprof
JBE was elected governor because (1) everyone wanted to run against him in the first election because they thought that any Republican candidate would win over a Democratic candidate, (2) the Republican candidates essentially ignored him in the first campaign, hence permitting JBE to go unchallenged...

re: ARG NH Poll (Kasich surges past Rubes; Cruz free-falling) - lsuprof
Kasich has not surged past Rubio. He has moved into a statistical tie with Rubio. The 1% gap between Kasich and Rubio in the sample means that the two candidates are statistically indistinguishable from one another. That is interesting in and of itself, so it is worth pointing out. But one would hav...

re: Am I The Only White Conservative Who Admires MLK? - lsuprof
I am VERY conservative and am a great admirer of Dr. King. He was a flawed human being--as we all are--and I didn't agree with everything that he said, but to me he was a heroic figure worthy of admiration. His "I have a dream" speech is an important philosophical statement that is required reading/...

re: Which media outlets are proven neutral, if any? - lsuprof
About a decade ago economists Tim Groseclose and Jeffrey Milyo created a media slant scale based on the ideological positions of the think tanks that news outlets cite in their stories. If a media outlet cites only liberal sources, it get a 100, while if it cites only conservative sources, it gets a...

re: What is the benefit of LSU's new +/- grade scale? - lsuprof
I have spoken to some students who have supported this change, and I do not understand why. In the past students would get 4 points for an A, 3 points for a B, etc. Now they can get an extra .3 points for a "+" grade but lose .3 points for a "-" grade. The key question is how many "-" grades are the...

re: Reveille: blame right wing extremism for shooting - lsuprof
Look, no one takes Reveille editorial writers seriously. Many of them know little or anything about contemporary public affairs. There are some very bright Mass Comm majors at LSU, but the best and the brightest rarely show up on the Reveille editorial pages. The Reveille editorial writers come from...

re: BLM protesters Invade Class Room Chanting “Why Are You in Class”!! - lsuprof
Every one of these students should face sanction from the university and, if they persist in their disruption of classes, should be subject to arrest. It is fine for students to protest in public spaces, but there is no right to disrupt a class and not face punishment. This disruption should be met ...
