Scoot's Top 8 at 8


#8

On this day in 1968, the rock musical “Hair” opened on Broadway!  The message of the musical, which included a nude scene on stage, was a reflection of a new young generation dedicated to rebelling against the Establishment.

#7

The TV show, “Good Times,” will become a movie!  Will you go see it?  What sitcom from the past would you like to see made into a movie?

#6

A bill that would do away with film tax credits was talked about in Baton Rouge today.  Do you think the film industry is taking advantage of Louisiana or contributing greatly to the state?

#5

Parents talking to people in person and on their cellphones are distractions that lead to many injuries children suffer at playgrounds.

#4

A secret recording to Tulsa reserve police officer Robert Bates raises more questions about whether Bates paid to “play a cop.”

#3

Today, the Supreme Court heard arguments about whether to legalize same-sex marriage.  What is your argument for or against?

#2

City leaders and some French Quarter businesses are joining together to form a new special task force to help fight crime in the French Quarter.  The task force will be called “Bourbon Patrol” and it will patrol Bourbon Street between Canal and St. Ann.  Don’t most of the crimes in the French Quarter take place on side streets or deeper in the Quarter?

#1

President Obama called the young people that rioted and looted in Baltimore “criminals and thugs.”  The President said that America needs to do some “soul-searching” to solve race-related problems and that young people should not be born into poverty. The passionate reaction to the Baltimore riots continues tonight on “The Scoot Show” on WWL.
