Re: “Coliseum Repair Cost Lower Than Previous Estimate

Trying to get context: 1) did this study compare its to-do list with the previous studies so there are comparables and 2) I am assuming it reflects Departmemt of Justice requirements, right?

Re: “From Sea to Shining Sea ...

"The real irony is that the disgruntled, angry white Trump supporters and the disgruntled, angry Black Lives Matter folks have much in common: Our political/economic system has disenfranchised both groups. If they ever figure that out and join forces, a real tsunami of change will be upon us."

This is so very true. The only difference I see is that the lower middle class whites that make up the majority of Trump's support have had even less attention. At least if you're a minority, minority issues get discussed. The system may be disenfranchising you, but racial issues do get political discussion. If you're a lower middle class white American, you've been outcast completely by our politicians.

That's why the support for Trump has been so strong and why more and more of that group have come to his side every time he's called a racist or any other name. They're disgruntled and forgotten to the point that they're demanding to be heard. You are correct though that if they'd realize the common ground they have with BLM, and those two groups would join forces, they'd have quite the political clout as a collective.

That ought to make it much easier for the Save the Coliseum group to fund raise the entire amount through the private sector since this will be such a huge success. Bravo!

Re: “Shelby County Schools Under Federal Civil Rights Investigation

Carolyn, because democrats, the federal government, and the Dept. of Education all say so. Obama allows them to come into our country illegally then the feds push them off on to the states and tell them to educate them, all at the state & local taxpayers expense. SCS should accommodate these poor children and provide them with Spanish speaking teachers of course.

Re: “The RNC: Preview of a Trump Presidency

If the Democrats actually want to defeat Trump, they need to bump Clinton. Just about any hack will do. But first they have to get permission from the bankers and brokers.

Re: “From Sea to Shining Sea ...

Towboat: the AR-15 is a semi-automatic civilian version of the M-16, (now called the M-4) used by the US and some other millitarys; the M-16 is a select fire weapon. I can't think of any army in 2016 that'd exclusively arm its soldiers w a semi-auto. Then again, the blue helmets (UN) probably should.

Re: “Shelby County Schools Under Federal Civil Rights Investigation

Why would these children be unaccompanied. Are they in the country with no adults? If they cannot speak English, how will they attend schools where the teachers only speak English the language of the United States.

Now, more than ever, having a niche degree or skill though advanced education is necessary. Cowboy (or cowgirl) up and hit the books.

And, stay off my grass!! :)

Re: “From Sea to Shining Sea ...

Name one war the AR 15 was used in.
I had a classmate in junior high who's father was one of the last Rhodesian Army soldiers to lay down his rifle and it was a semi automatic because of an arms embargo that ensured the Rhodesians wouldn't get the same fully automatic weaponry as the Mugabe followers.

It would make a wonderful combined aviary-aquarium that would be the first step and eventual centerpiece for a relocated and updated Memphis Zoo.

Re: “'Pork Report' Targets Civil Rights Museum, Zoo, City Council

"...The report cited a recent Vanderbilt study..." All you need to know here folks. How much do you think Vanderbilt BILLED the Memphis City Council for this "study"? After all, Vanderbilt is a private university. Why didn't they consult UTCHS or the Univ. of Memphis? Or Rhodes College? Yeah, Rhodes is private, but heck, they're in the SAME damn town. Just WHO are the smug know-it-alls who decided that Pre-K programs do no good? You honestly think THEIR kids don't go to some private Pre-K program? Really?

No serious media should ever treat the Beacon Center as reliable or reputable. It is Koch Brothers light.

Certainly Dong, your internet preferences aren't to be extrapolated to everyone. Like it or not, America is online.

Re: “13 Percent of Tennesseans Without Broadband Internet Access

To pt. A, I'm in agreement. to pt. B, how exactly are they most in need of access? They simply must have cute cat videos, porn, old Lost in Space episodes, and, well, the ability to read the drivel presented herein before hard copies are distributed? Those dang cat videos are engaging, so I concede that pt.
