Re: “Not All Are Happy with the New Greensward Parking Plan

A lot can happen in two and a half years. Many of us will be watching the Zoo every single day. We need Chuck Brady to be replaced and a new Zoo board appointed with more in-tune members who seek to be good neighbors and help preserve this history park and 10,000 Old Forest. The Zoo should stop destroying trees behind the fence in its 17 acres that they are making into an exhibit. The large, old magnolias near the north end of the Greensward should not be destroyed. Trees in its current parking lot should not be destroyed. The Zoo should not be allowed to ever expand it's footprint into the park. The Zoo should be fully ADA compliant and should stop its racist rules on Tuesdays. The Zoo should stop lying about nearly everything it does and stop using Ms. Doty as its puppet to spew lies.

Quince becomes Rhodes becomes BARRON not Semmes. Semmes crosses Barron.

Re: “You Know You're From Memphis If...

1. When George Klein hosted "Dance Party" on Ch. 13, Sat. afternoons and seeing the original Gentrys; 2. When Lance Russell wore the suits he got at Baxter's; 3. When you went swimming at Lakeland; 4. "Sexy Sadie's" on the old Highland Strip; 5. Seeing Danny Owens strolling around with his "angels" on each arm @ Memphis In May 1984; 6. "Rave Nights" at TGI Friday's, dancing to New Wave music; 7. Seeing the Dave Clark 5 at the Coliseum and getting mad because they only played 40 minutes, you couldn't hear the music because of the screaming girls, and they didn't sound like their records.

... you've seen that guy who wears a bandana and rides his bike everywhere.

... you've started figuring out that guy's schedule based on where and when you see him.

... you've gotten concerned because you haven't seen that guy in a while.

Re: ““Hunger Games” at The Commercial Appeal

The CA will eventually downsize and outsource its way to irrelevance. They will milk all the cash they can from the remnants in the mean time.

Re: “Democrats in Philadelphia Wonder, 'Where's Jim?'

I imagine he has better things to do than schmooze with a bunch of self-congratulatory political hacks, whose idea of being a Democrat (Big D) involves avoiding the actual practice of democracy (little d) by means of corrupted party officials and 'super delegate' shenanigans.

We have 'more important things to worry about', as some here are wont to reminds us about, ad nauseum. There happens to be a lot of work to do in this wild and wooly river city, where there is Trouble.

Yeah, trouble galore.

Woodson J. Savage, the Flyer's circulation has remained steady for years, with a 92%-95% pickup rate each week, a stat that ranks among the highest in alt-weekly papers in the country.
