Re: “Bobby Jindal on government shutdown: "We are no longer going to outsource the Republican brand to the folks in Washington"

Yes, this alt-weekly's online poll hardly seems scientifically rigorous. What school is your research team affiliated with, Brown? Ha! Brown! It's probably them, or some other lesser Ivy.

Re: “Jindal tax swap plan: State sales tax increases to 5.88 percent

And I had to use the pre-2012 benchmark data to match what was available for the states.

Re: “Jindal tax swap plan: State sales tax increases to 5.88 percent

First part is a typo. Jan. 03, it should say. Second part was from preliminary data, and it should be 3.7 not 3.6. So thanks.

Re: “Ladder control problem

Thank you Jeffrey. Also, the "hundreds" line was an error. It should read "pictures showing hundreds of neutral ground violations."

Re: “Ladder control problem

I thought his comments on this topic were reasoned and insightful. As far as I'm concerned, there's no "better" than that.

Re: “Public records release: City enforcement of illegal short-term rentals leading up to the Super Bowl

I guess I was using the word to mean "expanded to an unusual level" as it's defined in the dictionary. But you're right, "increased" might have been a better way to word it. I apologize if this sort of, arguably imprecise wording made it impossible to understand the blog post.

Re: “I'll be interested to see the math on this: Jindal proposes to "put money back in Louisiana pockets" in a "revenue neutral way"

Not sure what about this post suggests I think it's a change for the better. "Revenue neutral" does mean that the same amount of state revenue will come in, meaning what is being sold as a "tax cut" doesn't actually lower the overall tax burden. That it's being shifted to the poor (more regressive) is pretty much the whole point I'm making here.
