The whole state is having budget problems.
They've run in the hole six of the last seven years.
The main problem is they have too many campuses for too small a population.
First example: They have three universities (Grambling, Louisiana Tech, and Louisiana-Monroe) serving a geographic are...

Mulkey's comment is funny.
The only problem is that Blair was an assistant coach when she won her title as a player at LA Tech. So by her tirade against A&M she's slapping her mentor in the face....

F-22 doesn't AFAIK. F-35 theoretically has but that particular variant has had all sorts of problems.

The only platform that I can recall that worked for both the Air Force and the Navy was the F-4.
But it was built first to Navy specs (which are far stricter, given that their planes have to fly over lots of open ocean and land on aircraft carriers), then the Air Force managed to acquire some and...

I've learned that when you're dealing with ANY conspiracy theory (9/11, JFK, tax protestors who claim the 16th Amendment isn't valid), don't waste your time engaging them.
Discussions are futile. They have their views and if you don't agree, at best you're simply uninformed and at worst you're p...
