Re: “Is Drew Brees a bad tipper? New Orleans service industry workers weigh in.

The restaurant industry needs to deal with their own pay issues and not castigate someone for eating at their restaurant and paying what they were asked to pay for that food. What's missing from the argument here is that patrons — the people paying for eating at a restaurant and ultimately the people keeping the restaurant in business — should not be expected to know or have to worry about HOW a business pays its employees. That is between the business and the employees. But to have employees to harangue customers because they didn't pay enough OVER the amount the bill says they owe. If a restaurant can't operate at a profit AND pay their employees a fair wage, then they should not run a restaurant — just the same as any other business.

Re: “Send a time capsule into space

Yes, the star-naming business was a stroke of entrepreneurial genius). Thanks for the info on the shuttle and other rocket news. Hope Michoud gets a piece of some of the pie/s. We really need it.

Re: “Give or get the message

Ah, yes. Makes me long for the days when we would go out to dinner or get away from the house to get AWAY from the phone.

I was told there was a scheduling conflict.

Re: “Bottoms Up! The Bar Guide

You are quite mistaken. Bud Rip's and Markey's do appear in the guide, though Henry's was overlooked. I wish all these bars were Gambit advertisers, but you are incorrect about that, too. As for your characterization of the people who compiled the guide, well, their ages, backgrounds and social points of view are varied, and your insult is unwarranted. Perhaps a stiff drink at Henry's is in order.

Re: “Bike Sense

I agree auto drivers should be more aware of the rules of the road for bikers and more accommodating to those traveling on two wheels, but bikers also need to make sure they are safe and can be seen so they don't get run over. As for my mindset, you've really made my point. We shouldn't need legislation telling people to turn on their headlights at night just like people should know — without being warned by a manufacturer — that the plastic bag used to wrap an item should not be given to a toddler as a plaything. As for the cost: It does take a few bucks to buy a light, but it's a safety issue for both the bike rider and other people using the roads.
