SCOOT'S Top 8 @ 8

Scoot's Top 8 at 8

The Northeast is bracing for a massive blizzard and people are being told to prepare to be stranded for several days.  More than 5,000 flights have been canceled and that is even affecting travelers in New Orleans!

Miss USA Nia Sanchez was runner-up in the Miss Universe pageant, last night.  During the interview portion, she was asked what her message to the terrorists might be.  She has been criticized for saying, “I know as Miss USA I can always spread a message of hope and love and peace, and I would do my very best to spread that message to them and everyone else in the world.”  Was that the wrong answer?  How should she have answered?

Ex-NFL players, including former Saint Scott Fujita, are saying it’s time for the NFL to reform its policy on marijuana.  Should NFL players be allowed to smoke pot?

Sunday is the Super Bowl!  The New England Patriots left in the middle of the day today and just beat the massive snow storm that is headed for New England.  Seahawks defensive back Richard Sherman says the Patriots will never be punished for “deflate-gate” because the owner of the Patriots and the NFL commissioner are close friends.  Is it time to let the air out of “deflate-gate” – or should the Patriots be punished?  Who’s going to win – Patriots or Seahawks?

The Benson family feud continued with the attorney representing Rita, Renee and Ryan stating that the manner in which Tom Benson informed the family members that they were all ousted from the Saints and Pelicans facilities was not a “thoughtful personnel change.”

The restaurant chain Ruby Tuesday is being sued for discriminating against males by hiring only female bartenders and wait staff for their Park City, Utah location.  Should a restaurant be allowed to hire all males or all females?

The Associated Press sent out a story nationwide Saturday stating that the French Quarter is not safe as Mardi Gras approaches.  Because of a recent increase in violent crimes in and around the Quarter – will you skip Mardi Gras downtown this year?

“American Sniper” was #1 at the box office again this weekend.  Michael Moore implied that he tried to save more American lives by trying to stop Bush from sending troops to Iraq.  Liberal Democrat Howard Dean said the movie is attracting people in America who are “very angry” and many of them are Tea Party supporters.  Is the liberal bashing of “American Sniper” fair?
