re: GM autonomous car to launch as early as next year - SwatMitchell
[quote]This will happen eventually as they become more and more accepted, and the number of accident fatalities is reduced drastically, and traffic evaporates. You would probably have to go through so many hoops to drive by that point that very, very few people will even be allowed to do so.[/qu...

re: Surprise! BR Judge refuses to issue arrest warrant for animal cruelty incident - SwatMitchell
[quote]Money doesn’t change the makeup of the electorate.[/quote] Thanks for sharing the article. Based upon this case and the other info shared, I would gladly support pretty much anyone running against her. This includes Grover (her opponent in the last election). PETA can be overreaching/ex...

LSU OC Position - Business Case Study - SwatMitchell
All organizations hire top management (AD, Head Football Coach) to make the tough decisions, and employment decisions should not be made based upon public opinion.

re: Harold Joiner - SwatMitchell
[quote]I really like the early signing period. Next year I bet more top kids sign in December.[/quote] I like it too - it forces both sides to show their cards a little earlier. It sounds like Joiner could have signed early, but his heart may not have been with LSU - so he likely won't be here...

re: Early Signing Period begins tomorrow. - SwatMitchell

If the program won't supply early signing period paperwork and asks them to "wait", then they'll have some clarity and be able to go somewhere else. It might also reduce some of the last minute flipping/gamesmanshi...
