re: Gas price in Mid-City is 99 cents a gallon - White Roach
Thank you for the well thought out and articulated response. I know there are variances in local markets. Several posters have mentioned the gas station outside of Bocage, where trophy wives don't care how much gas costs. My beef is that I can go 20 miles east on I-12 to Slidell or 20 miles west...

re: Gas price in Mid-City is 99 cents a gallon - White Roach
I stand corrected! If history is any indicator, the price of oil moving up has an immediate effect at the pump. However, bizarrely, the price of a barrel of oil has dropped over $25 in the past month, yet gas at the pump has moved only 10¢ per gallon. It's a mystery as to why. Oh, wait a minute,...

re: Wife likely has covid - White Roach
I can see COVID possibly being an OSHA recordable at a hospital, but a plant? That's crazy! Not saying I don't believe you, just that it's nuts. Your wife needs to explore her options, but I'm sure she knows that. ...

Still $1.89 across Covington. We're a geographical oddity ... within spitting distance of major refineries, yet seemingly immune to market forces. We continue to get fricked. ...

re: Wife likely has covid - White Roach
Where are you in LA? I'm sure you don't want to name her employer, but this is ridiculous. Is she a travel nurse, maybe? I saw my niece (no pics) on Saturday and she told me she was offered big bucks to transfer to another hospital in her system in NO. She said, and I have no way of verifying thi...

re: What are you paying for gas in your area? - White Roach
fricking idiot here... Oil prices have fallen between $20 and $25 a barrel over the past month. Gas taxes remain unchanged. Conventional wisdom estimates the refining costs, transportation, and marketing costs to be approximately 50% of a gallon of gas. With that known information, would you e...

No surprise, but the Hilton Garden Inn in New Orleans. It's going to look like Thunderdome in that place when the bums get through with. ...

1.89 in Covington. The price has dropped 10¢/gallon in the past month. Meanwhile, a barrel of oil remains in the low/mid-twenties. They're fricking us. ...

re: Trump tells Prince Harry, Meghan Markle 'they must pay' for security' - White Roach
I have a friend who is as big of Trump supporter as possible. He tried to explain to me that all of his tweets "had meaning", even if not apparently obvious. Okay, that's his opinion, even if it doesn't make a lot of sense. You would think a master communicator would say, or tweet, what he means, in...

re: Trump tells Prince Harry, Meghan Markle 'they must pay' for security' - White Roach
If Harry and Megan asked for Secret Service protection while having some intercontinental family quarrel with the Queen (or whomever), it should have been refused. I just think it's an odd thing to tweet about. I know Trump uses Twitter as his personal stream of consciousness tool, but its a weird t...

re: Latoya and JBE press conference notes 3-29-20 updates in OP - White Roach
Didn't Edwards announce his "stay at home" order last Sunday, to go into effect at 5:00pm on Monday? LaToya announced her order at 5:00pm on Friday the 22nd. I can't remember when it went into effect. My point is, I think it's only been ONE week. Or maybe I've just really lost track of time ... ...

Were we being asked to pay for their security? It's a weird thing for Trump to tweet about, if we were. Even weirder, if we weren't. ...

re: New Orleans convention center hospital - White Roach
The federal taxpayer, through their friends with their credit card in Congress. That who's paying for it. The bigger questions are who is going to staff it? For how long? If they expect it to be near capacity (1,100 to 1,300 beds?), how long will it take for those people to be well enough to be d...

A doctor from Touro was on the radio this morning and said that there is no indication that that will happen. There was an outbreak in the Southern Hemisphere a month or two ago, which, as you know, the seasons are opposite of the Northern Hemisphere. ...

re: Ochsner In NOLA has announced that 50 employees have tested positive for COVID-19 - White Roach
Probably because it's in Jefferson Parish. It's amazing how many people who are not from the New Orleans Metro Area are willing to argue this point. Ochsner has always treated a ton of patients from Central America. Not many know where Jefferson, LA is, but all of them know where New Orleans is....
