re: Books similar to Dan Brown - Loubacca on 9/1/17 at 3:24 pm
Follet is a beast. His books are usually pretty long but I've always moved through them quickly. He's an excellent writer and does a very good job of making you feel like you are in the time period the book takes place in....Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)

[quote]On Dan Carlin, he does reference Keegan some in Blueprint but I also remember him saying he wasn't a big fan of Keegan. Anybody know why?[/quote] I'd like to know too. It surprised me when he said that because I enjoyed his writing so much before listening to DC....Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)
re: Just picked up "The Second World War" by John Keegan - Loubacca on 8/17/17 at 11:00 am
I've only read "The First World War". If it's anything like that it will be excellent. I read a lot of books in this genre and it takes a good author to be able to hold your attention while plowing through details that can get monotonous at times. I think he does of good job of keeping the narrat...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (1)
re: Ms. Lizz's Deli North BR - Loubacca on 8/11/17 at 11:50 am
You obviously need to be aware of where you are, but the the NBR shtick about your a dead man if you cross over FLA Blvd is worn out. There isn't much variety but they do have some good little plate lunch joints around there....

Michael Chabon - Loubacca on 7/28/17 at 9:24 am
Are there any other Michael Chabon fans out there? I really enjoyed the Amazing Adventures of Kavalier and Clay and The Yiddish Policeman's Union. I'm about to read some of his other books and was wondering if any of the other ones are as good as ones I mentioned. I will say that I have to break ...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (2)
re: LEAP results: EBR continues to decline - Loubacca on 7/13/17 at 4:18 pm
[quote]Go to the school in the neighborhood in which you live. Very simple. Problem is, black families don't want to send their kids to their neighborhood schools because they're no good.[/quote] That was the point of my last post.

[quote]How does Texas get away with having schools that are 70% white with another 90% Hispanic and black one two miles down the road via neighborhood schools but Louisiana can't do the same?[/quote] Exactly.

re: LEAP results: EBR continues to decline - Loubacca on 7/13/17 at 4:08 pm
Seriously though, I would think that there is enough diversity throughout the city to where this would not be a problem (instituting neighborhood schools). Realistically, what are the chances in achieving perfect racial balance at every school? ...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (1)

[quote]I understand that and more of a reason to have an ISD in south EBR.[/quote] I would venture to say it can be fixed right now by going to neighborhood schools without having to have a separate ISD. You would think they would just say frick it and give it a shot. What do they have to lose?...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (1)
