Chik-Fil-A BBQ

Posted By Lee Spain

I can think of at least 3 other minority groups that Chik-Fil-A should speak badly about. Then, it would be an even better place to eat! grin

Well, if ever an incident proved that the cops are just 5 minutes away when you need them, it was the Aurora theater shooting. I don't blame people for increasing their arsenals.

Are we a Christian Nation?

Posted By Lee Spain

You are absolutely right. Plus, I know for a fact that Muslims live in Missouri because they were being investigated for sending satellite phones from St. Louis to Al Queda back in 2001. wink

NCAA throws the book at these cheats. Glorious day

Silly nerdlings. Institutions that shun sports are passing up valuable opportunities. It's no wonder they can't sell science in this country. wink

From an institutional perspective, sports is about establishing and deepening the bond between the general public and the educational institution. Every contact with the public and alumni is a sales opportunity. It's the opportunity to establish the institutions brand, sell the University to prospective students, prospective donors, and prospective political supporters. It also helps support the local economy around the institution by attracting visitors and commerce.

I wish Emory University had sports. If they did, they wouldn't have to prey on the public with their completely worthless high dollar continuing education certificate programs.

Pretty much. But, I've said this country needs a Minister of Shut The Folks Up for along time.
