So embarrassing. It's like my state can never make headlines for the right reasons.

LSU players aren't on the field during the "Star Spangled Banner," and it's unclear who was among the "group of Louisiana legislators" who made the threat that LSU President F. King Alexander described in the column.


Cause nothing makes a legislator look more badass than threatening the first amendment right of students for something they're not even doing in public.

Why does this administration seem intent to take a giant dump all over education? Is it just simple ineptitude or do they know that their support base is largely conprised of the ignorant and misinformed and want to add more to that demographic? (Hey, it's no crazier than the other baseless conspiracy theorie we've seen on this forum)
