I'm not a Miles hater but it's this belief and the not listening that makes me crazy. Miles has indeed done alot for LSU, including incredible recruiting, good coordinator selection, and generally caring about LSU overall. But (and...

I agree the "Byzantine Tax Code" need to change and wish that our leaders had the fortitude to do so.
That said, I'd like to better understand how the film tax credits "take money directly from the taxpayers". The only way this makes sense is if you assume the economy is not dynamic and that the...

Nor I. But, Miles has needed to go for a while now. We've been seeing all the leading indicators of a program in decline and many wish to deny that by pointing at past glory. Not m...

I agree with this. The current bunch of R leaders are no better than the democrats -- they only want power and will say anything to get it. But, there are no principles behind it so nothing will get done. Pretty sad really....
