[quote]Small percentage. Tell me how many cops get to choose? 0% [/quote] Huh? An Emergency Room doctor gets to pick who comes through the door? News to me......

re: Gravy pissed - new EBR School Board Super selected - not who you thought would win - Golfer
[quote]This line of thinking is why public schools are so bad. Why should someone spending time as a teacher have any bearing on their ability to be an effective administrator? It’s a completely different set of job requirements. And the state qualifications to be a teacher are ridiculous - es...

[quote]Right, because cops get to choose their customers and they are often trustworthy and respectable people worth doing business with.[/quote] ED Physicians/Staff? Clinical Therapists, etc? They aren't choosing their clients on their first trip into the facility. ...

re: How would law enforcement look without qualified immunity? - Golfer
[quote] It is about people not filing suit because they don’t like the way the officer resolved a neighbor dispute or a barking dog call.[/quote] They can still file suit, no? I'd imagine the private sector (insurance companies) handle this better than state/local government self-insured fund...

re: Why did LSU cave on the library renaming so quickly? - Golfer
[quote]However, this one is a no brainer.[/quote] What’s interesting is that the vocal minority wants to “have a conversation” and “welcome people who might have been -ist”. All while “addressing systemic racism”. Which is fine. Except in this case Middleton did exactly what these people wante...

re: Louisiana COVID-19 - June 19, 2020 Update: 48,515 cases - 2,972 deaths - 590,909 tested - Golfer
[quote]None of this means there is some kind of ridiculous secret conspiracy. It just means that trying to issue daily reports isn’t always a neat process.[/quote] It just points to the incompetence of our State Government. It isn't difficult to update the data based on testing date and then refl...

re: LSU Board votes to remove Troy Middleton's name from campus library.. - Golfer
[quote]They tried but there simply is no historical tradition of strong financial support by alumni. They were swimming upstream[/quote] You realize LSU's largest fundraising years and alumni participation rates have been in 2018 and 2019, right? You're trying to connect some dots related to ...

I'm just going to continue with the rolling averages as posted since I haven't changed the data in the past when there's been "dump days" from old batches, either... [img]https://i.ibb.co/RccPs0d/Annotation-2020-06-19-123208.png[/img] [img]https://i.ibb.co/hfpWgr8/Annotation-2020-06-19-1232081...

[quote]LSU announced it publicly in March 2019 But the effort began in 2016...[/quote] Correct. The effort/back-end began then. Strategic Plan wasn't launched until Fall 2017, priority implementation and funding mechanisms weren't put in place until 2018. [quote]LSU is subject to a policy ...

re: LSU Board votes to remove Troy Middleton's name from campus library.. - Golfer
[quote]But why does it piss you off? Why get so fired up about this? It’s an ugly building slated for demolition...why get angry that it will spend its last 2 years of existence with a different name?.... To me this was a low hanging fruit[/quote] It's the appearance that LSU is simply caving ...

re: LSU Board votes to remove Troy Middleton's name from campus library.. - Golfer
[quote]Seems like that whole campaign was poorly run. It was launched at the height of dissatisfaction with Alleva and Alexander. [/quote] It launched ~15 months ago and is still going on :lol:. Alleva was gone 14 months ago and Alexander was a public candidate for new jobs about 10 months ago. ...

[quote]Insiders know better The move to layoff the staff was because of the failure to raise the funds for a $1.5B capital campaign. The Foundation CEO was replaced as well[/quote] Not accurate, FWIW. Pre-COVID they were actually ahead of target on the $1.5B goal. ...

re: Jetblue Adding 30 New Routes: Big Focus on Florida, Newark (EWR), and Philly (PHL) - Golfer
[quote]So what's interesting is I'm hearing these routes are all going away on Nov 1, essentially operating from July 1- Oct 31 and then poof. Testing the market?[/quote] Probably a bit of both. Seasonal travel, banking on pent up demand, etc. ...

re: Foosackly’s is better than Canes - Golfer
[quote]It is couple miles down the street from South Alabama. I don't know if they were going for the college crowd like the one at LSU, because if they were they could have easily put it much closer. There are quite a few places it could have gone within walking distance of south.[/quote] The or...

[quote]The guy was at LSU with plans to open up a place in BR, but Graves beat him to the punch by less than a year so he went to Mobile.[/quote] The guy (or his wife) is from Mobile, went to LSU, and liked the original Canes (Highland Rd.) concept and replicated it down the street from South Ala...
