re: Polls in pivotal states show dems overwhelmingly prefer mail in...REALLY - N.O. via West-Cal
Polls suggest that Democrats are going to be far more likely to vote mail-in, but they may regret that. Mail-in ballots are far more likely to be invalidated that in-person votes. So, yes, while the Democratic preference for mail-in voting could result in a large numbers of late-counted votes trendi...

re: SIAP: OSU president ... WTF!!???? - N.O. via West-Cal
I find this sort of statement terribly irresponsible. A grand jury, after viewing the evidence, has made its findings on the facts of a specific case. We really need to be more respectful of that process, especially those of us in positions of authority. There is a growing--and ugly--trend of group...

re: Questions you would like Chris Wallace to ask during the 1st debate? - N.O. via West-Cal
If a bill to increase the number of Supreme Court justices from the current 9 reaches your desk, will you veto it? If a bill to ban fracking comes to your desk, will you veto it? Do you oppose or support any effort to admit any current US territories as states? If you support, which ones? ...

re: Trump front-runners 'antithetical" to Ginsburg's legacy, critics say - N.O. via West-Cal
"Trump front-runners 'antithetical" to Ginsburg's legacy, critics say" So, when identity politics just don't get it done, progressives resort to focusing on ideas? For some reason, this strikes me funny....

re: ‘This is not about principles’: Eric Holder tells progressives - N.O. via West-Cal
"Progressives need to be comfortable with the acquisition-and use-of power." I appreciate Holder's openness, but I cannot help but laugh. When have progressives EVER been uncomfortable with the acquisition and use of power? That's what progressives do....

re: Most Freakishly Athletic LSU FB Players Ever? - N.O. via West-Cal
Billy Cannon (SEC shotput and 100 yard dash champ) Patrick Peterson (so big, so fast ... and a corner?) Alan Faneca (I know OL may not seem to fit here but he was so agile for being so big and physical) Leonard Fournette (see Auburn!) Chad Jones (perhaps a little sentimental here but great size,...

re: I thought it was so awful “to be black in America” - N.O. via West-Cal
How bizarre! For what it's worth, how about some kudos for a real black man, New Orleans resident and full-blooded American Lawrence Brooks, our oldest surviving WWII vet. He served at a time, unfortunately, when he probably loved his country more than it loved him, just because of the color of ...

re: Louisville Residents to pay Breonna Taylor’s Family $12M - N.O. via West-Cal
"He’s pointing out a repetitive focus on a matter of trivial importance by our deceptive media, not focusing on it himself." Perhaps. But my thinking would be "why compound the triviality by commenting on it?" Of course, not a big deal. The big deal is that Taylor was shot to death in what appear...

re: Mellody Hobson Ted talk - color blind or color brave - N.O. via West-Cal
"Started school in 1975 in a school that had black and white kids and had no idea about the Civil Rights movement until years later studying it. It was just normal. We were taught everyone was to be treated equal, to BE colorblind. I'd guess the vast majority of Gen X and under has lived their lives...

re: Louisville Residents to pay Breonna Taylor’s Family $12M - N.O. via West-Cal
"Except that the lawyer mentions it in every sentence. Why? They know that EMTs have a much higher public perception than ass-wipers. I’m being overly pejorative about it. But it’s the truth." I see what you are saying but suggest, respectfully, that you consider whether you are focused on a matt...

re: At what point did the left start to call McCain a war hero - N.O. via West-Cal
"And what dictates someone as a war hero?" Imprisoned as POW for years. Refused release he could have had due to his status until his fellow POWs were freed. If that doesn't qualify, then what the hell does? McCain was never a political favorite of mine. I think he was wrong about a great man...

re: Louisville Residents to pay Breonna Taylor’s Family $12M - N.O. via West-Cal
It is hard for me to get hung up on whether Taylor was then working as an EMT when it was the execution of what sounds like an unnecessary no-knock--or perhaps poorly executed--knock and not announce warrant leading to a hail of bullets. Such warrants are dangerous and frequently unnecessary. ...

re: Why have no politicians, media heads, agency heads, etc died from Covid? - N.O. via West-Cal
The most obvious answer is that few people in any group, other than the superannuated or those possessing co-morbidities, are likely to die from COVID. You can look this up, but the mortality rate is below 1%. With all that said, Herman Cain died of COVID, as have some celebrities, such as John Prin...

re: Will One Team One Heartbeat fracture over political issues - N.O. via West-Cal
I think LSU football is going to mostly fine for two reasons: (1) Coach O is apolitical as far as I can tell--see his commercials with JBE and positive comments about both JBE and Trump, and (2) our longstanding traditional pregame has the national anthem played before the players run onto the fiel...
