re: House passes bill banning abortions after 20 weeks - islandtiger
[quote]an acorn falls to the ground and the seed takes root and gets nutrients, you'll have a tree.[/quote] I am in the camp of wanting abortions to be rare but accessible and use your analogy as support for my position. Just like the "stately oaks" on the LSU campus are not the same as the acor...

re: St. George on track to collect signatures needed to be put on ballot - islandtiger
[quote]BRHS has a far superior physical plant than Woodlawn's. [/quote] They do now, although that was not always the case. [quote]The faculty is far superior too.[/quote] I agree, although there are certainly poor teachers at BRMHS and many great teachers at other high schools. [quote]d...

re: student loan - islandtiger
My approach for all our kids has been to keep total loans to no more than 40-50 percent of expected starting annual salary. So far, all our kids have gone to LSU and, with TOPS, that goal has been easy to achieve (all have been under 20 percent). Our youngest is going to a private school out-of-s...

[quote]The losses these bomber crews took were just amazing.

[quote]a university-recognized organization, and the activity takes place on university property. The university gets to set the ground rules.

re: If you could quit aging what age would you choose? - islandtiger

I am in my late 50s and am fortunate to still have all of those attributes, except that knees and back are starting to show th...
