re: Game Thread: LSU - 6 vs. Bama - 2 Final!!! Tigers Win! - lsuprof
This is the worst camera work that I have seen in watching a baseball game. The camera person must be an idiot. I can't believe that there aren't complaints about this from the gumps....

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...

re: Republicans should take a softer stance on welfare and the safety net - lsuprof
I don't think that there are many Republicans or conservatives who advocate for an elimination of welfare programs altogether. I suppose that there are a few libertarians who support the complete elimination of these programs, but most Americans (including Republicans and conservatives) recognize th...

re: Hundreds of Christian Churches close in Western Europe-- - lsuprof
There are American churches that conduct missions here in the United States. My children have been on missions both in other countries and here in the U.S., and I get the impression that there are quite a few churches who conduct missions here. These missions are less about proselytizing than about ...

re: Jury awards fired Catholic school teacher $1.9 million - lsuprof
[quote]I don't think the problem is so much their code of conduct as much as their inconsistent application of it with this particular individual. By acknowledging pand approving of time off for the same exact procedure previously, it seems dishonest to fire her for the same procedure. If they held ...

[quote]The Catholic Church is against IVF? Why?[/quote] The Catholic Church considers embryos in general (and certainly those created through IVF) as human beings. IVF is expensive, and often for IVF to work one must create a number of embryos. In many cases multiple embryos are implanted, an...

re: Jury awards fired Catholic school teacher $1.9 million - lsuprof
Is this a "pregnancy-related medical condition"? She was terminated for using in-vitro fertilization, which took place before she was pregnant. Hence the action in question cannot involve a "pregnancy-related medical condition." ...

re: Jury awards fired Catholic school teacher $1.9 million - lsuprof
This is a nice "feel good" message from the jury, but a legislative act--in this case, the 1964 Civil Rights Act--does not overrule the First Amendment right of freedom of religion found in the U.S. Constitution. The Catholic Church, its parishes, and its public schools are protected by the First Am...

re: Will Harris play? - lsuprof
Of course he won't play. Coach Miles has been playing Lucy holding the football for Charlie Brown since the Auburn game. He is the head coach, and if wanted Harris in the game Harris would be in the game. The fact that he is not says that Coach doesn't want him in the game, despite his claims that H...

re: Cassidy's message was clear and simple..and it won him the election - lsuprof
This comment is right on target. Cassidy stayed on message and there was nothing that Landrieu could do about it. Obama is extremely unpopular in this state and it was not difficult to connect Landrieu to Obama--she left plenty of ammunition for that in various comments that she has made since Obama...

re: Landrieu outperformed the rcp poling averages by 8 points - lsuprof
An election like this is very difficult to predict with precision. The big problem is turnout. In a general election we have a lot of previous experience that can be used to predict who the likely voters are and how the likely voters are likely to vote. In a runoff election like this, it is more dif...

re: Rolling Stone Screwed The Pooch - lsuprof
This is a cluster-f**k of epic proportions. It may well be that there was a gang rape warranting an investigation at UVa. But printing this story without the appropriate level of skepticism and scrutiny casts doubt on these allegations and resulted in the kind of overreaction by university officials...

re: Rams won't apologize... - lsuprof
The argument that this is a freedom of speech issue is ridiculous. Freedom of speech is a right derived from the First Amendment to the U.S. Constitution and applies to government restriction of speech. Private entities--businesses, clubs, NFL football teams--are free to take action to limit the spe...
