re: If Jamal Adams gets out of top 5 - N.O. via West-Cal
I love Adams - maybe my favorite player from last year's LSU team - but it's hard for me to justify going crazy to get him when safety seems like a lesser need compared to DE, CB, and maybe even LB (though we have made some moves there)....

re: I will happily give up mortgage deduction for lower rates - N.O. via West-Cal
"If you start it somewhere you'll instantly have a HUGE sub-class of people staying right at 24,999 and performing whatever hijinks they need to keep it that way discouraging growth." No. We already have marginal rates and this doesn't happen unless the rates are super-high like they were in the ...

re: All Time LSU Defense - N.O. via West-Cal
DE- Spears DT- Williams DT- Thomas (I realize the DTs might be controversial but as good as Dorsey was, I feel he was slightly overrated) DE- Estay (a great but too often overlooked Tiger) LB- Brooks LB- Duhe LB- Capone (We have had some beasts at LB) CB- Peterson (one of the easiest cal...

re: Dems to filibuster Gorsuch - N.O. via West-Cal
The photo says it all. The show trial (hearings) never mattered. Man, the few Dems like Manchin who are in red or purple states have to feel like their party leadership is putting them in a vice....

re: MoveOn OUTRAGED over potential Sen Dems deal to confirm Gorsuch - N.O. via West-Cal
"we all know he'd never have gotten the nomination (without filibuster, even), and that would have been a much better precedent" That would have been a tough no vote to cast for Republicans in close states. Garland likely would have done very well in hearings, so a no vote would obviously be pure...

re: "Attacker reportedly Asian in appearance" - N.O. via West-Cal
"They call them all Chinese" I've never been to Britain but hang out with some native Brits. I want to say they also refer to the "Far East" or "East Asians." Of course, they've spent a lot of time in the States, so may not be a good gauge. In American parlance, "Oriental" was often used for ...

re: Best to wear #18 - N.O. via West-Cal
"Give me Tre White. All SEC on the field and bypassed first or second round money to come back for his senior season." Hard to argue with that. Another one I haven't seen mentioned is Bennie Logan. That was a grown man playing the line. Hester is my pick because he was so central to perhaps...

re: Tillerson: 'I didn't want this job ... My wife told me I'm supposed to do this' - N.O. via West-Cal
"If it has to do with Trump, there is no nuance to words or phrases, everything must be taken hyper-literally. No such thing as self-deprecating or dry humor." I am ambivalent at best toward Trump and did not vote for him. But it may even be worse than you say. Not only is their nuance, words tha...

re: Tillerson issues warning - N.O. via West-Cal
"Threatening an already extremely paranoid dictator who has nukes seems unwise" Yes, appeasement has been a smashing success. All Tillerson did was refuse to take options off the table, which is almost always the right move. I am not a fan of Trump but he hit some home runs with his appointmen...

re: Check in here if you were born in Lou and have never heard of Louisiana College - N.O. via West-Cal
It's actually MORE stereotypically NOLA for you to have been to the ends of the earth but still not have even heard of La. College. My neighbor, a native New Orleanian, says there just be a big dragon on the map between BR and Houston as on the old pre-era of exploration maps. ...

"Interesting, I always thought Baldwins Trump impersonation sucked ass. I think Jimmy Fallon has the funniest impersonation because it's lighthearted. Baldwin has too much contempt coming through his character IMV" I've been of a similar mind. Sure, certain parts here and there have been funny, b...
