re: Bama's Cam Robinson, Hootie Jones Arrested on Felony stolen handgun and drugs - dinosaur
This is perhaps hard for a non-attorney to understand but the affirmative defense language means that the defendant has to carry the burden of proof of lack of knowledge, which is significant in a criminal case. Normally the DA has to prove beyond a reasonable doubt. But here he just has to show th...

re: Bama's Cam Robinson, Hootie Jones Arrested on Felony stolen handgun and drugs - dinosaur
I completely agree. Forget school rivalry. This kid was a year away from being set for life and made a truly stupid mistake. I spent several years as a part time coach with a local high school and the hardest thing I had to do was to convince them that one stupid mistake could screw up their liv...

re: If you choose to expose yourself to risk, don't you deserve the consequence? - dinosaur
You are correct. We need to be responsible for our decisions and not blame a bad choice on someone else or some event. All bad choices don't have bad outcomes, but the percentage of bad outcomes is much greater with bad choices. Every step in life is about risk and choices. Poor choices, as...

re: History, slavery, and racial animus in America. - dinosaur
Your response is an example of why the racial divide in our country will not be closed any time soon. If my post is hateful just because I was calling for respect, then I am proud to hate. I would like to be able to discuss this more, but I have only a few minutes during the day here at work t...

re: History, slavery, and racial animus in America. - dinosaur
Move on is the key. History can't be changed, except by re-writing the books. It is time for this country to become totally color blind, and to do that, we must begin by fixing the "woe is me" attitude taught to black kids by their so called leaders, who mostly want to use them for political power...

re: Who's going to possibly the most popular symphony you'll ever hear in BR - dinosaur
Actually the symphony was nice, but the theater was warm and seats were cramped. Big crowd. Of course I am so un-cultured that I have no clue was was going on. But the music was very nice. ...

re: Spinoff: Where did your relatives serve in WWII? - dinosaur
My father was in the navy, executive officer on an LST in the Pacific. Got a bronze star for shooting down a kamikazi that was trying to ram his boat. His younger brother was in the air corps, and shot down a couple of zeros and was transferred back to Texas to teach at flight school, where my g...

re: Interesting Article On Lack Of Black Medical Students - dinosaur
Well, I am nearly blind, short, ugly, and grew up so poor that I generally wore hand me down shoes and clothes. My father beat the hell out of me if I didn't try hard at school or if I whined about my lot in life. I know a lot of black people are poor but we aren't all born rich or otherwise advanta...

re: What do you think about elementary school teacher as a career? - dinosaur
Teaching, if done properly, is more of a vocation than a job. And it is becoming more difficult every day with demanding and often unreasonable parents, lots of paperwork that has to be done on your own time, and rules about keeping certain children in the regular classroom. Your plan is good, i. ...

re: Spring scrimmage: still struggle with short and intermediate passes - dinosaur
Well, it would be unrealistic to expect immediate improvement in Harris's short passing but I would hope that he can work on this over the spring and summer. And if you play a quarterback who can only throw short, you will still have defenses cheating. Maybe Etling's weakness with the long ball is...

re: Will the 28 TOPS requirement keep students in LA? - dinosaur
You know I wasn't talking about the cost of going to school, but in qualifying for TOPS. Yours is the sort of back door argument - tuition is not too high -- that people who have wanted to kill the program for years continue to use. For the record, I don't think TOPS keeps kids in Louisiana at all...

re: Will the 28 TOPS requirement keep students in LA? - dinosaur
I agree with you. I think that schools have changed their teaching to aim more at the tests and made overall grading a little easier. Average ACT scores pre-TOPS was pretty low, and part of the reason for the lower initial qualifying number was to give the kids some attainable target. Now that ...
