re: Los Angeles County will extend their stay at home order...THREE more months - jrbjr
“L.A. County, confirmed cases and deaths have continued to rise“ If cases are still rising, then they are a long way from completely reopening. And it sounds like they are relaxing some restrictions....

re: Can we get a WWII content megathread going? - jrbjr
I second the WWII Museum. Started out as a D-Day museum and took off. Steven Ambrose (UNO history professor) got the idea after writing Eisenhower’s official biography. After that, he realized that the WWII vets were starting to die. He started an oral history project and recorded any veterans sto...

re: Finished watching Ken Burns' Vietnam series last night - jrbjr
I really liked it. I thought it was even-handed. I thought the greatest revelation (to me, I guess others knew this already) were the recordings of LBJ-Nixon telephone calls. Nixon has secretly called the S. Viet. President, telling him to delay the Paris Peace talks until he was elected. LBJ knew t...

re: Why all the hate for oil field baws? - jrbjr
Anyone working in a volatile industry like oil&gas needs to expect down turns like this. Any stock market speculators or commodity traders are in the same economic boat. Save money in the good times and hope you can ride out the bad times. ...

Scoob- I was going to post about Hot Lips but you beat me to it. She went from Hawkeye’s foil to a feminist ally after a couple seasons. Still one of my favorite tv series, though....

re: Nola Smells Like Burning Tires - jrbjr
So there’s a lightning strike at a chemical plant in St Bernard Parish, and this gives an opportunity for a cheap shot against NOLA. I’m not a fan of our mayor, but be reasonable in your criticism....

re: Throwback: Eddie Kennison 100+ yard punt return video - jrbjr
I was sitting with my son on the East sideline near the top around 20 yard line. Great view of this play. “let it go”....”don’t field it”...”oh, no!”... but by the time he crossed the field to the 10 yard line...”he’s going all the way!”...

I was one of those young recent grads who bought the baseball family pack for $35 when Bertman arrived. So my family saw this program grow. That moment was the best of so many great memories....

re: Impacts (if any) on NCAA Football - jrbjr
I am concerned about the Tigers missing so many practices. I know...everyone else is, too. But we have so many starters to replace, and our play caller. We need this time more than many other teams....

re: Scientifically speaking...is everything we're currently doing just fighting evolution? - jrbjr
Oweo is close to a theory espoused by Yubal Noah Harari in his book Sapiens. He points out that the industrial revolution is only a couple hundred years old, not to mention the data revolution which is just a couple decades old. Evolutionary changes take thousands of years to spread through the popu...

re: Well, no one is getting a stimulus check - jrbjr
I stand corrected. I read some more articles and apparently Pelosi has interjected herself into the Dem Senate negotiations. The Repubs want to give the corporations carte Blanche on spending stimulus. That didn’t go over well the last time(2008). Dems are countering with multiple unrelated politica...

re: Well, no one is getting a stimulus check - jrbjr
Start voting against incumbents. Every election. It doesn’t matter if they’re actually good. Odds are they’re self-serving, and should be replaced. Vote against all incumbents and let’s take our chances with new blood. Both parties....

I don’t mind the ads on the outfield fence. That’s a baseball tradition. I wish the scoreboards were ad-free and just provided info pertinent to the game. And more chair-back seats....

re: So now LaToya wants 2 City Halls in NOLA? - jrbjr
I just spent a couple hours getting an occupational license for my home-based consulting business. I had to pay one fee by check at the One-Stop permitting office on the 7th floor and then pay a 2nd fee at the Finance office on the 1st floor. Why can’t we pay both fees simultaneously? I’d be worri...
