re: LSU to drop student health insurance? - lsuprof
My understanding is that this applies to graduate assistants. We've been told that the Affordable Care Act prohibits LSU from treating some part-time employees differently than other part-time employees. Graduate assistants have received a subsidy to purchase student health insurance, but because ot...

re: What's the worst Supreme Court ruling of all time? (Pre-2015) - lsuprof
All of the disparate impact cases are at the top of the list. Griggs v. Duke Power (1977) is one of the worst, but there are plenty of others, including this week's Texas housing case. Honorable mention: Wickard v. Filburn (1942) was the case that used the commerce clause to greatly expand federa...

re: This Morning's Boring Supreme Court Opinions - No HUGE cases - lsuprof
[quote]What kind of clowns do we have sitting on the bench in lower courts, arguing the 5th amendment only protects real property (not personal property)??? Seriously, WHAT THE frickING frick.[/quote] Agreed--this line of thinking is crazy. That's what one gets in the 9th circuit. I was on the SCOT...

re: This Morning's Boring Supreme Court Opinions - No HUGE cases - lsuprof
The case of Horne v. Department of Agriculture is actually a moderately big deal. It places a limit on what the federal government can do in taking private property. These days anything that places some constraint on federal government action and power is at least a moderately big deal....

re: If the Republican primaries were today, who would you vote for? - lsuprof
Rubio or Walker. I am also taking a close look at Carly Fiorina as a possible VP candidate--she has impressed me of late, though I don't think that she has much of a chance to become a viable candidate for the presidential nomination....

re: Chris Wallace just interviewed Carly Fiorina - lsuprof
I must admit that I have been very impressed with Fiorina over the past several weeks. She comes across very well--very articulate and able to stay on message. I am afraid that it is a huge long shot for her to make progress in moving into the first tier of Republican candidates presidential, but if...

re: Ill. Supreme Court in an unanimous decision strikes down pension reform law - lsuprof
I hate to say it, but I don't see how the Illinois Supreme Court could have ruled otherwise, given the wording in the law. I know, I know--the wording of the law rarely stops high courts from doing whatever the hell that they want to. But in this case the wording of the Illinois Constitution would s...

re: What was the biggest teacher/professor meltdown you've ever witnessed? - lsuprof
[quote]Not really a teacher meltdown but in a comm class at LSU this guy was doing a Sudoku puzzle during a lecture and the prof told him to stop. He looked her point blank in the face and told her no. She told him to leave the class if he wouldn't stop and he told her no, he wasn't disrupting the c...

re: Baltimore protests - lsuprof
This is one of the strategies being employed by protesters. Instead of marching in the streets or rallying in the park, you confront people at restaurants, sporting events, etc. demanding that they support the cause-du-jour. In New York during the Occupy episode protesters would go into restaurants ...

re: LSU should have their budget cut if this is the quality of students... - lsuprof
While there are some really bright students in the Manship School, there are also quite a few lightweight students in that program. Unfortunately, it seems that many of the lightest of the lightweights find themselves writing editorials for the Reveille. Most reasonable people come to realize that m...

re: Christina Sommers discusses "trigger warnings" - lsuprof
Sommers is a brilliant commentator and is essentially correct in her take of modern feminism, particularly academic feminism. This particular video is on a bit of an esoteric topic, but much of what she writes about (e.g., gender wage gap) is right on target....

re: LSU Spring Commencement Questions - lsuprof
The main ceremony is primarily a recognition of those receiving their doctoral degrees, as well as those receiving special awards (e.g., university medalists with a 4.0 GPA). The commencement speaker also speaks at the main ceremony. The only recognition for graduating undergraduates is that they ar...

re: Choosing to avoid LSU? - lsuprof
LSU has some great programs and some great faculty, and students who enter LSU with a willingness to work hard and get the most out of their LSU experience can get a great education in most fields of study. I have watched many serious students do great things with their LSU education and go on to be...

re: Article/Poll: Americans want government to fight climate change - lsuprof
Look, majorities of Americans think that the climate is changing. Now majorities of Americans think that human activity contributes to climate change, though those numbers have been up and down over the past decade. The key question is whether Americans consider climate change a sufficiently large p...

re: Four of the five losses due to excessive 3pt shots and poor FT shootings! - lsuprof
All I know is that Quarterman missed a wide-open, standing-under-the-basket-with-no-one-around him layup with a bit more than 2 minutes that would have put LSU up by 3. Instead, MSU hurries down the court for a layup and then gets the ball right back for a score to put them up by 3. If Quarterman--w...
