Re: “Just a Swinging: MOUNTAIN VIEW is Americana in a Mason Jar

I staged managed both productions and there were changes made to both shows. We asked Harold for minor changes and he gave us them as soon as possible. And Harold came all the way from Louisiana to see a run and came to see a few performances. And it was great to have Teri in town to see run throughs and give us changes that we sought after.

It was a treat to see how these show developed from the first read through thorough the final performance. We also had a talk back for both shows and the audience have great feedback about both shows.

mr martin,
I said progressive PDs, and starting from left to right, Los Angeles. But if you want mental health arrest to result in deaths, you've moved to the right place.

Re: “TDOT Delays New Interchange Plan, I-55 Bridge Closure

The favor's to the political cronies from the Herenton administration may have changed the design, but there is really no way to get around closing the bridge for a period of time, regardless of the design. This is the safest, most efficient way to rebuild the interchange. I have seen too many collisions caused by the bottleneck at I55/Crump and have seen traffic backed up all the way to the Broadway exit in West Memphis.

The original design from the 1940's does not work and is not designed as an interstate interchange...funny though, it was the only way across the river for about 25 years until the "new bridge" was built. As far as Memphis is concerned, what reason do Memphian's really have to come across the river other than the dog track/casino...it's certainly not for lower sales taxes and an abundance of retail options. All those are to the south in Mississippi. Drive thru the Wal-Mart parking lot in Southaven and look at all the tax dollars leaving the state of Tennessee. I lived for almost 30 years in Mississippi and saw all the growth thanks to Herenton and his cronies...same goes for the dog track...they don't want it closed because that would cause their main source of income (Tennessee) to stay home...It's all self serving to politicians and certain business leaders. Remember it's an election year and these "cronies" want to keep their no work jobs for 4 more years.

How about I throw a bit of gasoline on the fire. The perils of self investigation.

Re: “Trumped

Nope, I'll probably hang in there for a while. Even us stogy old men need a little humor. And you're batting 1000. STILL nothing negative to say about the Martha Stewart wanna' be running for President. And take all of the shots you want. No feelings left to hurt!

MS,
Which regulations?
"Regulations say that you cannot hogtie him, run over him with your squad car, empty your clip or slit his throat."

mr Martin,
I think Brother Latini referred to it as Shangri-La. And I never argue with mi dolce Brunetto.

Bruce,
Care to detail who those cronies might be? Is the Metal Museum on that list b/c they were one of the more outspoken organizations regarding the preferred design identified by TDOT.

Re: “TDOT Delays New Interchange Plan, I-55 Bridge Closure

I'm looking forward to seeing the designs for the catapult launch and net capture system for crossing the river. Will they use gravity power or compressed air?

Re: “TDOT Delays New Interchange Plan, I-55 Bridge Closure

The "good ol' boy" network of the Herenton administration is exactly who forced TDOT into changing its original plans. It was done as a favor to a couple political cronies who live(d) in the French Fort neighborhood. And if you think all the opposition to this came from the Arkansas side, you are sadly misinformed. This needed to go back to the drawing boards, and now it will.

Re: “TDOT Delays New Interchange Plan, I-55 Bridge Closure

This only shows the misguided thinking of a lot of people. The project is needed! I'm sure that Arkansas and West Memphis did all the studies as to how the mess that was I-40/55 was thru the area for over 2 years would affect Memphis and Shelby County. (I seriously doubt it!) Once again, instead of thinking about the future, we are stuck in the past. The bridge and approaches are not designed to interstate standards. It is too expensive to replace the entire bridge, but the power brokers in Arkansas are to busy protecting their turf and who cares about the good of the region. What reason is there to go to West Memphis other than the dog track, which would be closed had it not been for the river flooding a few years ago that shut down the casinos in Mississippi. Crittenden County has not seen the growth or development that the other areas surrounding Memphis have seen in the last 30+ years, but no one seems to ask the question why...Maybe it's because they are stuck with the good ole boy network and can's see the big picture because they are too busy looking out for themselves.

Re: “Just a Swinging: MOUNTAIN VIEW is Americana in a Mason Jar

I, too, applaud this program. I just wonder if POTS has considered bringing in the playwright at some point in rehearsal to make relatively minor changes?

Anyone remember The Memphis Music Hall of Fame, 97 S. 2nd St.? That'd be hard to top ... Don Nix and John Montague had the best secret in town!

Ern,
If you're talking about what Christian fanatics say about being gay, I grew out of the last remnants of that uncertainty several years ago. After that I stopped identifying as Christian. It's something I highly recommend to any and all gay people.
