re: He can't even commemorate Katrina without dragging race into it - LSUgusto
[quote]What was factually incorrect about that statement? [/quote]What was factually incorrect about it was "structural inequality" as the basis for New Orleans's ills. What plagued New Orleans was breeding a culture of dependency on government in all facets of existence, from food, housing, ed...

re: Anybody watching this Anderson Cooper Katrina Special? - LSUgusto
I'm recording it, and not watching it live. I'll say this. During the ordeal, Anderson Cooper on the ground with Aaron Brown as anchor at CNN gave the most informative coverage of any team at the time. They were awesome at delivering the facts. I always thought Brown was the stronger of t...

re: He can't even commemorate Katrina without dragging race into it - LSUgusto
So, blacks in New Orleans were held back because of discrimination at bars, apartments and Mardi Gras balls? Okay. I suppose whites faced a structural inequality in New Orleans because of black-only barbershops, housing projects and second lines, no?...

re: Trump just recieved an entire hour of uninterrupted airtime on CNN, MSNBC, FOX - LSUgusto
CNN begins Don Lemon's show with the "Breaking News" chime. Lemon has a four-person panel to discuss the press conference. They wrap that up and go to commercial. When they come back, it's the "Breaking News" chime again, with a different four-person panel talking about Trump's press conference. ...

re: Quote from Alabama Trump Rally in Sunday's NYT - LSUgusto
I get the outrage. It's deserved. But does it have long-term mass appeal for a national election? Probably not. MDJ faded as quickly as he rose, as his novelty wore off and the schtick became redundant. Trump may face a similar fate, especially if he doesn't improve from his performance Fri...

re: Quote from Alabama Trump Rally in Sunday's NYT - LSUgusto
I watched "[i]Evocateur[/i]," the story of Morton Downey, Jr., on CNN this weekend. MDJ's studio audience behaves exactly like Trump's audience. I was struck by the similarities. MDJ calls someone a stupid moron, crowd goes wild. Trump calls someone a stupid loser, crowd goes wild. Those ...

re: "The Don" in Mobile, AL tonight speaking!!! (Play-by-Play until I pass out) - LSUgusto
Nope. He actually cracks me up rather often with his candor and off-the-cuff bluntness. I do find that refreshing, and he illustrates a path that others should follow. But, he does not come across as presidential material. It's cheap populism and rabble rousing, designed to sell something. I jus...
