re: Stephen Moret is leaving the LSU Foundation - lsuprof
Well, it would help if I would read the article more carefully! Thanks for (gently) pointing out the error of my ways. I assumed that he was going to another university post. ...

re: Stephen Moret is leaving the LSU Foundation - lsuprof
This is a real loss--I think very highly of Moret and had high hopes of what he could do with the LSU Foundation. My concern is that this has a certain "leave the sinking ship" quality to it. UVA is a real university that is no doubt taking its foundation work seriously, but it is unclear whether th...

re: Five Thirty Eight - Clinton (71.4%, 302) vs Trump (28.6%, 235) - lsuprof
According to this map, if Trump flips Florida and North Carolina and wins the other states that he is supposed to win, he is elected president. Both Florida and North Carolina are close, so it is not implausible, though winning both states will be tough for Trump. Not expected, but definitely doable...

re: Jake Tapper grilling podesta right now - lsuprof
Has anyone else noticed that HRC and Podesta have been asked if the Clinton campaign has talked to Abedin and they deflect the question each time. In each case someone asks a direct question to HRC or Podesta but in each case they turn the question around. What that suggests is that they have of...

re: New video added: White Students chased away from University Cal - lsuprof
The problem here is the university administration, which will not take appropriate action against those who are disrupting the learning environment at Berkeley. Students and others have every right to protest what they consider to be injustices, but they do not have a right to disrupt the activities...

re: Curt Schilling poops his pants! - lsuprof
I like Schilling and am sympathetic to his political views. However, I do not see how he beats EW in a general election in MASSACHUSETTS. I wish that it weren't so, but under normal circumstances no conservative Republican is going to win a state-wide race in that far left state....

re: Can you vote by absentee ballot and then in person? - lsuprof
One cannot vote if one has already cast an absentee or early vote. From the Louisiana Secretary of State's web site: [link=(http://www.sos.la.gov/ElectionsAndVoting/Vote/FrequentlyAskedQuestions/Pages/VotingOnElectionDay.aspx?OwnershipName=VotingOnElectionDay&faqid=0)]LINK[/link] Louisiana st...

re: Underappreciated skill Etling has: his eyes - lsuprof
This also happened on the second touchdown pass to Malachi Dupre. He looked to his left and then came back to Dupre in the back of the endzone. ...

re: Sanders calling on DNC chair to step down - lsuprof
Two things: 1. DWS will have to resign. The Democrats cannot have a DNC head who leads an organization that is so clearly showing favoritism to one of the presidential candidates. We've known all along that the DNC and DWS favored one candidate over others, but the WikiLeaks revelations bring th...

re: Democrat Ann Kirkpatrick pulls ahead of John McCain in Arizona senate race - lsuprof
Whoa there, big fella! Two problems with your assertion: (1) the "2 point lead" is well within the margin of error, and hence one cannot conclude that Kirkpatrick is ahead of McCain; and (2) we really must be careful about drawing conclusions based on one survey--this is why it is not a bad idea to...

re: John McAdams vs. Marquette 'PC' case - lsuprof
I have followed this case closely and think that McAdams has a very good case. Look, McAdams is a bit of a curmudgeonly guy who has ruffled the feathers of the administration at Marquette. He has had quite a few run-ins with the administration, which no doubt would be delighted to see him leave the ...

re: The 1 in 5 girls in college will be raped stuff - lsuprof
The one-in-five figure is a fantasy. The only way to get to that figure is to define sexual assault so broadly that it is divorced from any reasonable definition of the term. There are sexual assaults that occur on college campuses, but the crying wolf endemic in the one-in-five figure diminishes th...

re: University of Kansas professor keeps job after using racial slur in class - lsuprof
I have been following this story closely and have found it deeply disturbing. The professor in question used this language as part of an educational discussion, and there was no evidence whatsoever that this was based on any kind of racial animus. She should have been cleared immediately and not pla...

re: Obama slams liberal PC culture on college campus... - lsuprof
Even a hint that President Obama is a stalwart against political correctness on campus is a joke. This is the president whose Department of Education has brought us the "Dear Colleague" letter, misinterpreting Title IX to require a change in the legal standards for dealing with campus sexual assault...

re: Could they adopt new rules for the next debates??? any suggestions??? - lsuprof
1. There should be no studio audience at any debate. The applause, jeering, and other audience reactions are a distraction and diminish the quality of the discussion. 2. Candidates should not be able to interrupt each other. When one candidate is speaking, the microphones to the other candidates ...
