The forgotten prophetess February 18, 2015 at 11:44 a.m.

I don't think that it is the euro hurting the Greeks. The working people want to retire young and have plenty of time off. The rich avoid taxes through graft and loopholes. The Greeks need to cut back on benefits and make sure the rich are taxed. Cutting back on government spending in a recession only deepens it.

judges are part of society. Outside of the Deep South. most Americans now favor gay marriage. What is wrong about letting people be happy? Why should heterosexuals persecute gays? Wouldn't the world be better if we all were a little nicer?

Dddka,

The change has happened. Gays can now get married in most states. When the Supreme Court decision comes down next year, it will be nationwide. I just don't understand why people care so much what other people do.

Packman,

By education, I think he means "learnin" or "schoolin." Folk in Arkansas and Alabama have fewer years of schoolin than the folk in most other states.

Islam makes Obama dumb February 17, 2015 at 1:04 p.m.

Of course, Obama is leading the way in trying to get Muslims to oppose the terrorists. Obama was correct that many have called themselves Christians while they persecuted others. Let's not forget that the Nazis called themselves Christians as do those who persecute gays.

In LR, two take heat over schools takeover February 15, 2015 at 10:33 a.m.

Jake,

What was the LRSD plan? I never heard it. What were the details? Give the state a few weeks to begin the overhaul of these schools. What they can do will depend on the funding. The state officials have to figure out what they can get from the state, the Rockefellers, and the Waltons. Whatever they do, these schools could not be much worse than they already were. The performance of the LRSD was unacceptable.

The war against logic February 15, 2015 at 10:28 a.m.

Great column. Yes, the backwardness is embarrassing.

In LR, two take heat over schools takeover February 15, 2015 at 8:25 a.m.

Any help that the state, the Rockefellers, and the Waltons can give these schools should be greatly appreciated. Because the kids are so far behind, they need a longer school day and year. They need reading and Engish specialists, and many of the kids need to be held back a grade. The community needs to get behind the improvements.

Luck running out February 13, 2015 at 12:23 p.m.

Good points, Vickie. I wonder why college costs are increasing so much when other costs have been pretty stagnant. Some of the colleges are spending more on making the schools fancier with amenities such as hot tubs. Administrators also are making more. They want to be paid almost as much as a football coach. Ridiculous.
