re: Did you know ADHD students get special treatment for the ACT and SAT? - tigercross
[quote]Honestly, what good is it doing these kids to give them extra time and accommodations? It seems to me that it's setting them up for failure in the real world. When their boss tells them they have to get a project done by such and such date and they are used to working on their own time sc...

re: SCOTUS question - which conservative justices do we MOST need to retire? - tigercross
I think it honestly does not matter. The court is currently balanced--4 justices who follow the law, 4 progs, and Kennedy as the swing. If Ruth Buzzi or Kennedy goes and Trump appoints a Bill Pryor or similar to shift it to a conservative leaning court the Dems will expand the court as soon as they ...

re: Gorsuch is on the job - and hardly a wall flower - tigercross
[quote]I'm hoping Trump rams thru 2 or 3 more rock-ribbed constitutionalists (textualists) while we have control of the Senate. Maybe we could weather the next few decades with that kind of buffer. Make the DEMs - if they ever get back in control - pass laws to enact their agenda, not just 'decide' ...

re: The Beginning of the End for the Tom Fitzmorris Show - Part 2 - tigercross
A very large portion of each show is now dedicated to in-studio guests instead of callers. The guests have all been good, but I suspect it is because not many people have HD radio and there are not many callers. ...

re: Nate plastic predicting big things for Dems at midterms.... - tigercross
Silver is technically correct--if every district behaved like yesterday's election in Kansas, the democrats would pick up a ton of seats. Also, if my aunt had balls, she would be my uncle. The Estes-Thompson race doesn't really show anything--it is not an analogue for the Trump-Clinton race. On a...

re: Most Distinctive Family Names By State - tigercross
[quote]What do they mean by distinctive?[/quote] They took the top 250 last names in the country and compared the prevalence in each state to the national prevalence.

re: Anyone who wants Maineri fired is borderline handicapped. - tigercross
Holding Manieri to Bertman's level of success is unfair and illogical. College baseball is a different sport now and there is much more parity than in the 90s. It's like claiming Pat Henry is a worse track coach now than he was at LSU because he isn't winning national titles at the same rate. No--th...

re: Why did LSU let Pat Henry leave for A&M? - tigercross
Bertman was envious that Henry stole a small portion of his thunder in the 90s. When he had the chance to bring the big dick down on him, he did. In '04 the athletic department didn't send a single representative to greet the team at the airport after the men and women won indoor national titles. Th...

re: LSU Losing TOPS $$$$ - tigercross
[quote]Can someone please explain to me why baseball is limited to such a low number of scholarships? Thanks in advance[/quote] Because football gets 85 scholarships.

Sophomore year of HS our dog got diagnosed with kidney failure.

Well, one day mom accidentally put the needle into a vein. The solution went to the dog's h...
