re: Highlander - 4Runner - Grand Cherokee Summit - gorillaballin
I get the GC hate because historically they've been bad but I bought a 2013 GC Overland, put 70k miles on it, and it never broke down. Just traded it in for a 2017. I also bought an extended warranty just in case but have not had to use it yet....

re: Dry Cleaners in NOLA? - gorillaballin
Been using Liberto's on Prytania for years. They're expensive but not as bad as Model Cleaners on Magazine and they haven't screwed anything up for me. Unfortunately I think all of the ones uptown are expensive...

re: Buying an SUV...need help - gorillaballin
Bought my 2013 JGC Overland new and have 55k miles on it thus far with no problems at all. Very comfortable highway ride. Mine has the hemi v8 though FYI. My mom drove a 2011 model to 75k with no problems. I think they've improved reliability over older models...

re: Louisiana's Public Higher Education Problem Solved - gorillaballin
Grambling and LA Tech consolidating into a single entity is something that's actually feasible. Southern should just downsize to one campus since SUNO is a joke with their nonexistent graduation rates...

re: Louisiana's Public Higher Education Problem Solved - gorillaballin
I agree with most of your post but these politicians don't have the balls to shut any down, esp the HBCUs. Edwards is a dem, remember? HBCUs won't go anywhere (but they should, starting with SUNO). Also, Southeastern has like 15,000 students so it's fairly viable from an income standpoint, I'd im...

[quote]So buy a house with a driveway. Public streets shouldn't be treated as private parking lots - their primary purpose is moving people through.[/quote] Clearly you are not from here. It's not real easy to just buy a house with a driveway here, this isn't Prairieville bro. The parking lane a...

re: What is your opinion on the gentrification of N.O.? - gorillaballin
I'm a millennial, bought a double uptown in 2012 that needed a huge renovation. The older couple who had lived there for 20+ years let it go to shite so it needed basically everything but I was up for it. They bought a house with a pool out in Harvey for what I paid for their dilapidated property, ...
