Re: “Miles to Go

I could not have said it better myself. In regards to UNO, the argument that it is better to be the “step child” of a Division I school than to be in a Division II system where you can either be the “flagship” or exist non-competitively is an argument for athletic superiority not an argument for an institution that prides itself on research. Any amount of knowledge about the role politics plays in state funded schools would lead anybody to the conclusion that this was a wise move.

Re: “Lucy's Football

I cannot support a bill that ultimately teaches out of one book (yes, it’s one book, if you believe in even one, the rest are wrong). Even a teenager can understand the lack of logic behind it (Zack Kopplin). Texas and the Saudi’s are like brothers from different mothers and cultures. But, both have an insatiable appetite for religion and some how justify an even greater appetite for capitalism. Fortune 500 companies would never take a stand against religion but they will take a stand against uneducated, anti-capitalists with moral compasses.

Re: “On June 1, the Louisiana Senate once again killed a bill that would have banned smoking in Louisiana bars. Would you support a ban?

I half-heatedly support the ban with exceptions like bar patios and cigar bars. If 51% of you business is derived by tobacco sales then so be it. The problem is when lobbyist keep pushing further after initially winning like New York either just passed or is considering passing prohibiting smoking in parks. Reason dictates that this is an unreasonable measure. Before you know it you will have to be blank amount of feet from the front entrance, etc. The amendments to such a ban are what scare me away from unwavering support.

Re: “What is your level of trust in the NOPD today?

Why is there no middle ground? Jumping from low to high skews the statistics.
