Does anyone know where I can find LSU season baseball statistics that are updated after every game? I went to the LSU baseball page on LSUSports.net but cannot find any information on team and individual batting and pitching statistics. Please accept apologies in advance if I have overlooked it.

This is a sad story, in my opinion. Europe in general has become very hostile to religion, bordering on anti-religion bigotry. What we would consider a right has been denied to these people because of the intolerance of the German government on things religious. I agree that the U.S. government can'...

Dan Claitor appears to be the only plausible alternative at the present time. Dietzel will camp out at the conservative end of the spectrum, and Claitor will place himself at the moderate conservative position. At this point I suspect that it will either be Dietzel or Claitor....

The 77 cents thing involves comparing apples and oranges and is invalid. When one compares apples and apples--that is, when one accounts for the variety of reasons (i.e., hours worked, experience, occupation, etc.) why one individual may earn more than another--the gap closes to between 5 and 8 cent...

Look, things are going to get a lot worse with this, and I suspect that before this is over there will be some Democrats ducking for cover. However, it won't be enough. After the 2014 elections, the Republicans are going to control the House and there is perhaps a bit better than a 50% chance that t...

Obama was not against same-sex marriage in 2008. He SAID that he was against it, but of course he was in favor. He knew that in 2008 that was a politically-risky position to take. The climate changed and he made his position known as soon as he could without taking a political hit for it.

I am a bit disappointed in where we ended up, though. If someone had said to us at the beginning of the year that we would pl...

Elizabeth Warren's grasp on reality and reason is highly tenuous at best.

This is an interesting take and in many ways is right on target.

For these players another year at LSU might have made some difference, both...
