re: Year Round School - La Legislative proposal - Thorny
Did something like this for first 4 years of school. They called it "45-15", meaning we had 45 days on and 15 days off, and it was done in part to help overcrowding in a fast growing county (Pasco County FL). All it really did was spread the learning loss around the year. Scores were not particu...

re: Most heart breaking losses - Thorny
1987 Regional Final vs Indiana. Only game I have ever walked out of convinced the refs jobbed us. . . . . . . 2006 Auburn: Yeah, I think the refs jobbed us, but I wasn't at the game. ;-) Honorable Mention: 1994 Auburn Interception Game. It sucked, but at least we knew the Hallman ni...

re: Hypothetical if multiple Biden states are shown to be Trump states through audits - Thorny
Biden will remain president no matter what happens. 1) Each state certified a board of Electors. 2) Congress certified those boards of Electors as legitimate (this was the predictable and inevitable result on Jan 6th, which neither the protest nor the reaction to the protest was ever going to c...

re: Your most hated player that ever played for your football team - Thorny
[quote]I don't know about D.J. Welter, but Brandon Harris in 2015 prior to the Bama game played pretty darn good during the start of the season. I thought he was going to be a great player for you guys.[/quote] And, a big reason the LSU offense sucked that night is that Harris was injured on the ...

re: Culotta: Max Johnson clearly number 1 and not even close. - Thorny
[quote]he key is who can put the ball in the playmaker’s hands. With the best chance to succeed.[/quote] I'm not sure it's that simple to say. My observation of the late season games by Johnson is that he not only knew where the ball should go, but that he also had a great awareness of the off...

re: Are you guys ready for Annual Vaccinations? - Thorny
I had Covid back in June. Knocked me down for a week and still feel some reduced lung function. Still, following the guidance, I took the Pfizer vaccine, with the second shot this past Monday. After both shots, I had a bad reaction and was tired and sluggish the entire next day. I'm not get...

My mother was struck by lightning over the phone. We lived out in the country. She was talking to her sister-in-law who lived about a quarter of a mile away. Lightning hit a phone pole between them.

re: Special Operations Command ‘Not Aware’ of Top Hire’s Anti-Trump Posts - Thorny
It is true that the man has a right to freedom of speech that would allow him to make the Tweets (as much as I dislike them.) However, if any military officer had done the same Tweet, he or she would be guilty of a violation of UCMJ Article 88, Contempt for officials, as well as Article 133, Cond...
