SCOOT'S Top 8 @ 8

Scoot's Top 8 at 8


#8
This week in 1969 – John Lennon and Yoko Ono launched their “War Is Over – Happy Christmas” campaign.  Billboards went up in 15 cities around the world in protest of America’s involvement in Vietnam.  That would be equivalent to a top music star today putting up billboards protesting America going to war in the Middle East.

#7
LA State Police report that over the period since the day before Thanksgiving to now – there have been 61 deaths in auto crashes in the state.  Driver distraction, impairment and not being properly restrained all mentioned as contributing factors.  Does anyone still not fasten their seat belt – and why?

#6
Bill Cosby’s wife, Camille, says her husband is “kind,” “generous” and “funny” and not the man being portrayed by the media with all of the sexual assault allegations.  She also compared judgment against her husband to the initial judgment against UVA for a Rolling Stone story about rapes on campus.

#5
Former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush has announced that he will “actively explore” a presidential campaign in 2016.  It could be an election between a Bush and a Clinton.  Can Jeb Bush win?

#4
Joan Jett & the Blackhearts, Lou Reed, Stevie Ray Vaughn, Ringo Starr and Bill Withers are among the inductees into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame for 2015.  Do you agree with the choices?

#3
There is a new law in New York banning the tattooing of pets!  Should pet owners have the right to tattoo their pets?  And would you tattoo your pet?

#2
Hackers known as Guardians of Peace are making threats against movie theaters showing the Sony Pictures movie, “The Interview,” which opens Christmas Day.  The movie is a comedy about a CIA plot to kill North Korean leader Kim Jong Un.  Will the threats cause you to stay away from movie theaters on Christmas Day?

#1
Does the Saints performance against the Bears last night in Chicago prove the Saints have not been emotionally prepared to play many games this season?  How do you describe the Saints win over the Bears: a confidence builder, a good win over a bad team or a rebirth?
