re: How 3 top New Orleans public schools keep students out - N.O. via West-Cal
I realize the writer is trying to be provocative and perhaps I am just jaded, but is there anything of value in this piece? Is it hard to get your kids into the best New Orleans public schools? Yes, of course it is because those are the schools everyone wants to get into! Is the process frus...

re: Trump: I'll debate Bernie if $10-15M is raised for women's health issues - N.O. via West-Cal
This could be shrewd politics, too. It tends to take some of the luster away from the actual presumptive Democratic nominee and allow Trump to position the Democrats as being as far left as Sanders....

re: Switzerland to Muslim Students: Shake Your Teacher’s Hand or Pay $5,000 - N.O. via West-Cal
I cannot support this sort of statism. I value the First Amendment too much to see something like this done in the US. However, these sorts of cultural differences are why western nations should be wary of taking immigrants, especially in large numbers, whose values are discordant with the prevailin...

re: Do you take your suits to be dry cleaned after each use? - N.O. via West-Cal
You really want to avoid doing this. More often than not, you just need to have your suit pressed rather than dry cleaned. You will increase the life of your suits by a good bit by doing this....

re: Bizarro World: GOP nominating a 47%'er - N.O. via West-Cal
I would not be surprised if A Want/Milbank is right, but I seriously doubt anyone will care. As I started to learn with Obama and have belatedly begun to understand with Trump is that their brands of leadership (especially Trump's) are more in the realm of cult of personality. Obama was "smart" and ...

re: Amended overtime dollar amount mean more jobs, not fewer - N.O. via West-Cal
Here's another question: why not make the salary threshold 100,000? Or 200,000? I'm not necessarily against raising the number but an increment phase in would be less expensive and disruptive to business and to many employees who like the predictability of a salary. ...

re: A Unique Problem - Too many kids want to go to charter schools - N.O. via West-Cal
"Isnt it state legislated? If they change the rule for one, dont they change them for all?" Not necessarily. In face, special rules have been provided for special circumstances before; e.g., failing schools being taken over the state. As for being against charters, I understand and respect the...

re: A Unique Problem - Too many kids want to go to charter schools - N.O. via West-Cal
"Im on the other side of this argument. I live in North LA in a parish where the public school system is tops in the state." With all due respect, why even be in the argument at all. Your parish has schools that work. I agree that you don't want to fix that which isn't broken, but does that mean ...

re: A Unique Problem - Too many kids want to go to charter schools - N.O. via West-Cal
"typical NOLA whites putting SJWism over their own kids..." I don't think so, at least not to a significant degree. You don't see a flood of middle class and up white kids into all or even most public schools here. Instead, you see a surge in applications to Franklin, Lusher, Hynes, and other sch...

re: So what percentages of conservatives on here are now supporting Trump? - N.O. via West-Cal
I seem to be moving in that direction. He scored some points with me with a very sensible list of those he would consider for judicial appointments. Pointed up the up the face that I have to choose between trump and a continuation of Obama. ...

re: Why hasn't Obama released his College Transcripts or college papers? - N.O. via West-Cal
"I don't give a shite about Bush's and I don't care about Obama's. My college grades are in no way a reflection of who I am today, and I'd imagine that applies to a number of people." I don't think anyone is obliged to turn over anything more than the law requires. Don't much care about Trump's ta...

"But for those of you who were gloating over those double-digit leads by Clinton, what are you saying now that they have disappeared?" I don't know that I was gloating but I am admittedly no fan of Trump. What I say is something I have said a few times lately. I have never understood Trump's appe...

"But I still say pulling out so early helped create ISIS, as once we invaded our obligation should have been to remain in the country for 50 years at the minimum." I agree completely. It is also why I was steadfastly opposed to going to war in Iraq. Bush made the greatest foreign policy mistake o...

re: Rare but we should, Titans preparing to release QB Zach Mettenberger. - N.O. via West-Cal
"he's slow afoot and has a slow release. He'd be a terrible fit for this offense. I do like his talent tho" I may be higher on Mett than you, but I agree with the sentiment generally. I see Mett on a team that has a power running game, runs play action, and looks to take shots down the field. Not...

Marcia Ball set in Blues Tent - Jazz Fest Sunday - N.O. via West-Cal
To anyone who saw the Marcia Ball set yesterday: Who was the redheaded, guitar-picking singer who roused the Blues Tent during Marcia Ball's set yesterday, and what was the song? It was quite a moment in the tent as the rain fell and the crowd roared. You could tell the singer was moved by the r...
