SCOOT'S Top 8 @ 8

Scoot's Top 8 at 8

A comedian has come up with an idea to settle the controversy over the Washington Redskins name and it has gone viral.  Comedian Hari Kondabolu’s solution is the keep the name the “Redskins” – but replace the picture of a Native American on the logo with the picture of a very sunburned white person!  Would that settle the controversy?

The price of gas continues to drop!  AAA shows that the average price for regular gas in the New Orleans area is down to $2.92 a gallon and some expect the price to drop below $2.50 a gallon next week.  How are the lower gas prices affecting your life – personally or professionally?

LA Gov. Bobby Jindal says that running for president is the only job he would consider in his political future.  Honestly, does Bobby Jindal have a chance?

Websites can create false news that is quickly accepted and shared as “real” news.  The site, The National Report, posted a story to Facebook’s news feed about a family of 5 in Texas that had been infected with Ebola.  The story went viral and I even received calls on “The Scoot Show” about the story.  Have you ever believed and passed on a story that proved to be a hoax?

According to a new poll, an increasing number of “most likely voters” now expect the Republican Party to take control of the Senate and since last month, support of Republican candidates has increased among “most likely female voters.”  Have you decided who you are voting for?  Do you vote for the party or the individual candidate?  If you are Republican – have you ever voted for a Democrat?  If you are a Democrat – have you ever voted for a Republican?  If Independent – which party do you lean toward?

Hosts on the Fox News Channel are, again, telling young voters NOT TO VOTE!  Tuesday on the Fox News show “The Five” – Kimberly Guilfoyle said that young female voters should not vote because they do not share the same life experiences of older women and they should spend more time on Match.com.  Early this month, a Fox News host on “Outnumbered” said that young people should not vote because they do not understand the issues.  Is this a good message to send to young people?

An artist who lived in the 8th Ward for about 10 years has organized the largest gun buyback in New Orleans history.  Artist Kirsha Kaechele says the gun buyback will take place Saturday, October 25 at Ace’s Car Wash & Sweet Shop.  Do you think gun buybacks work?

An analysis of an autopsy the body of 18-year-old Michael Brown shows that Brown was shot during an altercation with Ferguson Police Officer Darren Wilson.  However, the autopsy report does not answer the question of whether Michael Brown was surrendering or charging when he was shot in the head.  Is this autopsy report meaningful?
