Re: “13 Logos That Are Better Than TN

I think showing our party demographics is a great idea! That is what it symbolizes, right? Red republican state, except for Memphis down there on the bottom. meh. They really do hate us in Nashville, don't they?

Re: “Harold Ford Jr. for Mayor?

The voters in New York caught Ford in a BIG LiE and he double talks and they know he is not a true Dem so he will not win dog catcher in the Big Apple !

Re: “Harold Ford Jr. for Mayor?

I understand that he intends to run as a Republican and is trying to pass as Dominican.

Re: “The Wearing of the Green

If you want amputations, I direct you to Hoboken, New Jersey's Greg Stratford Experience. They're still together, just unable to sign autographs without assistance. And to come full circle and wrap this Ambien nightmare up - and I accept 85% responsibility in this - Sal Bunker, former Assless Chaps manager, is my next door neighbor.

Re: “The Wearing of the Green

While I'm sad for the donkey, I'm glad the story went that way. I was sure there would be amputations.

Re: “The Wearing of the Green

Actually, the name had nothing to do with western apparel. As hardcore Assless Chaps fans know, they were simply five lads from England whose pet donkey had died.

Re: “The Wearing of the Green

It's funny because, as we all know, all chaps are assless. It's part of what makes them chaps. #theexplainer

Re: “The Wearing of the Green

The Assless Chaps were an underrated band. As they were passing through town a few years back their accordion player came in for a bleaching. Nice guy.

Re: “The Wearing of the Green

I caught the last couple of songs of their set the night Pave the Weeds opened for the Assless Chaps in Dayton, '89.

Prince Mongo has a better chance of winning the Memphis mayoral. I mean really.

Re: “The Wearing of the Green

"Pave the weeds." Not a sound ecological strategy, but a pretty good band name.

Re: “The Rant (May 28, 2015) ...

Brunetto,

Sorry, but you have left out all the early Church Councils that settled most of those matters, i.e. Nicene, Chalcedon, etc. The atonement is just that; propitiation. Arminian vs Calvinsim has no effect upon the essentials of the Faith, as summarized in the Apostle's Creed. The Council of Nicene settled the Godhead issue of the Trinity in the third century. Your quote, "...does the religion appear to make practitioners better (define 'better') and happier (define 'happier'...which is a by-product, not a causal factor, and calmer....'). What standard says these things are the criteria for truth? They are all your arbitrary choices injected into a dogma of your own subjective whim.

Can you tell me why Islam is a coherent ideology or religious viewpoint for truth?

Re: “The Wearing of the Green

The greensward is nothing more than a weedy field which is used very little. The leftists love to control people and they hate that more and more people love looking at caged animals.

I went to the zoo on Memorial Day-- it was very ideal weather. There were almost no visitors enjoying the greensward that day. This is more fabricated outrage over nothing. Pave the weeds and be done with it.

Re: “Lunch at Uncle Buck's Fish Bowl

We ate at the Fish Bowl on May 28 2015. We stood in line for about 15 minutes and then at 12 noon they were putting names on a waiting list. The young lady wrote our name down and gave us an alarm. We were told that we had a 45 minute wait. We were finally seated after waiting 1 hr. and 20 minutes. The front desk staff did not seem to know what they were doing. Our waitress Melanie was great. I do not chose to eat there anymore.

Clancy,
You're suggesting a kind of return to the womb therapy.

Re: “What They Said (May 28, 2015) ...

Along with Memphis Heritage, Midtown Action Coalition has been in the front lines of preserving and repurposing historic and old structures in Midtown, too. Kudos to both groups!

Andy Holt deserves an honorary PhD...he's clearly demonstrated the ability to Pile it higher and Deeper.
