re: Am I the only conservative who doesn't mind that Confederate statues are being removed? - Thorny
A city should have the right to decide that it no longer honors the things it did in the past. Doing so does not erase history. At least, not in the same way as the Taliban blowing up the Bamiyan Buddas or the destruction of other antiquities by ISIS. That said, I think each statue is different:...

re: Great Historical "Could Have Beens" - Thorny
[quote]OU lost 3 games in the regular season that year. OSU's only loss was to Iowa St, otherwise they'd have been undefeated and no way Bama jumps back to #2 in the BCS over an undefeated BCS conf champ[/quote] I think you misunderstand the point. Oklahoma has way more name value recognition...

re: Tool Box and Bed Cover? - Thorny
I have a BAK RollX, which I like, but I have the box sitting on the floor of the bed. I didn't like losing so much of the bed space by having the box a foot back from the front of the bed. If I were to do it again, I would probably go with [link=(https://www.foldacover.com/)]Fold-a-Cover[/link]...

re: Define Success for Will Wade's Tigers Next Season - Thorny
From the article about him posted in another thread: “A model of consistency. Blue-collar, tough, gritty, hard-working, aggressive program,” Wade says. “Not a lot of ups and downs. Consistent and winning big games in March. Just keep this thing going down the tracks.” That is my standard. ...

re: Pope issues statement saying he is open to change regarding Priests marriage - Thorny
Several of the Eastern Rites (Byzantine, Melkite, etc.) of the Church have always allowed married men to become priests. They usually cannot marry after becoming a priest, which comports with the situation Pope Francis talks about. They are usually not chosen to be Bishops either, meaning that in th...

re: How many of you allowed your kids to go to college out of State - Thorny
I grew up in Florida. My mom insisted on me and my siblings going to school out of state. She wanted us to "see the world". It also helped that she was a Gator Hater. That's how I ended up at LSU in the first place. After a career in the Air Force, I now live in Alabama. First two sons went to in...
