re: BRPD Punching man at Race Trac on Airline with video - Loubacca
There will be some crybabies complaining about the cop punching a cuffed man. If these cops get disciplined for this, there really is no hope. The alternative is that the cops just stop showing up and this junkie frick harasses the wrong person and get's iced in the parking lot....

re: Hemingway doc spinoff - What's your favorite EMH writing? - Loubacca
I would imagine that EH had a lot of issues with PTSD and mental illness. The fact that he drowned himself in booze on a daily basis did not help his overall well-being with these conditions.

re: Outlook on mask wearing mandates in Catholic vs. non-Catholic private schools - Loubacca
Truthfully, I don't really care if a mask is effective or not. What I do care about, is that my kids are physically in school. My kids attend a Catholic school in BR and they do have fairly strict rules in place with the mask and distancing. I'm pretty sure they do this based on the current recom...

[quote]Tops kees all of those apartments developments afloat. There wasn't 1/3 the number of off campus apartments around LSU when I was there in mid to late 90s.[/quote] I would go one step further and add the cheap money that students have access to through government backed student loans. Any...

re: Are sprawling suburban apartment complexes a mistake? - Loubacca
They wouldn't need "affordable housing" if rents weren't artificially propped up by section 8 money. Food prices are another thing that is artificially kept higher because of the infusion of government money in the form of food stamps. After they identify the need for more affordable housing, th...

re: Just reread the grand inquisitor chapter from BK, just wow - Loubacca
I remember when I read this book, I was cruising through it and enjoying it, but not really getting the hype. Then I read the Grand Inquisitor. I went back and read it 2 more times and the book got elevated to a new status. I still enjoy reading it from time to time. ...
