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: Who was the governor when emmert was brought to LSU? - lsuprof
Foster was the best Louisiana governor in my lifetime, and Emmert was the best LSU chancellor. We could surely use the kind of leadership that both Foster and Emmert gave us. ...

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 ...

re: All elected Repubs should boycott all NBC shows. - lsuprof
The moderators were awful. There were many "gotcha" questions, and there was little substance in many of the questions. I also thought that many of the questions were openly hostile. One certainly does not see that in the Democratic debates, which essentially are love fests. The NBC moderators looke...

re: A Dardenne or Angelle endorsement of JBE will have no impact - lsuprof
I do not see how either Angelle or Dardenne can endorse Vitter after the things that they said in the run-up to the first election. This is particularly true for Angelle, who made the point that there is a "stench" in the state due to Vitter's actions. Dardenne may have bit more room to move in Vitt...

re: I'd vote for 84 year old Mike Foster for governor today before anyone running - lsuprof
Foster is the best governor of Louisiana during my lifetime. I didn't think too highly of him when he was first elected, but he did a very fine job in the position and I came around to support him strongly. At 84 he is probably not up to the job, however....

re: John Bel Edwards is impressive tonight - lsuprof
Being "impressive" and doing the right things are two different things. I have met JBE and do find him to be personally impressive. However, while he is not a Bernie Sanders or Elizabeth Warren Democrat, he is farther to the left than many of us would like to see. Don't let being "impressive" substi...

re: Office Depot Refuses to Print Copies of Anti-Abortion Prayer - lsuprof
Businesses should be able to provide services or not based on content, not based on the biology of the person requesting the service. Office Depot should be able to have a legal right to choose not to provide services with content with which they disagree, and bakers should have a legal right to cho...
