Re: “Memphis’ Pyramid Dream

Ah, I see. So you're saying we should sell out, do I have that right? Then why did we have to accept such a cheap price for our dignity?

Will the Bass Pro at Sycamore View be closed?

Re: “The Rant (April 23, 2015) ...

How diplomatic of you to cite the dietary restrictions as the aspect of levitical law that Christians would find difficult. Maybe fat Baptists secretly yearn for the opportunity of burning or stoning some reprobates. And considering support for guns everywhere, it maybe isn't much of a stretch to believe they might be OK with reinstituting the sacrificial system. Just so long as we don't refer to OT law as "sharia", we're good to go.

Re: “Memphis’ Pyramid Dream

Actually auto, St Louis used to have a McDonald's on a boat right under the Gateway Arch, and a Burger King on another one.
I continue to be amused that anonymous, online commentors are apparently the only ones that know what's good for this city.

Re: “Memphis’ Pyramid Dream

The only reason I'm willing to give the Bass Pro Pyramid a chance is because the Flyer is telling me I should. But none of what you say or what Bass Pro does will change the fact that our riverfront has become a mismatched mishmash of half-starts and private dreams. We've become wedded to a sporting goods store because we didn't have a good enough competing vision of what the Mississippi River means to this city. It's as if St. Louis opened a McDonald's franchise at the Gateway Arch and painted it gold.

Raccoons, not kosher. How about the ibex?

What truly surprised me in this article was that the racoon is our state wild animal. What about Janice or Henri?

Re: “Memphis’ Pyramid Dream

The BassPro store on Sycamore View does a good business. Will its current clientele drive downtown to the new one?

I can't tell you where I saw Tennessee Snake Handlers or who they opened for, because everything about that night was illegal.

Re: “Memphis’ Pyramid Dream

Hey, I resemble that snark.

So what you're saying is, on opening night, the ground floor will be flooded again. Progress!

So I take it you don't like comic books. And I had pegged for a collector.

Re: “The Rant (April 16, 2015) ...

Hmmm...a six day"rant" and not one comment?

Reading stupid crap like the above column and not reading one comment from readers just confirms to me why the numbers of civil rights bigots are dwindling daily.

Hey, bigoted rant writer, let's see how many comments you can get championing abolishing one of the other nine amendments in the Bill of Rights.

So, let me get this straight Bruce, if you don't support Obama or Hillary politics, you're a racist or that right? What a crock!

Re: “Memphis’ Turn

OK, I'll admit it. I don't get the Cheesecake Factory gag. What's the deal? Is it funnier than Cracker Barrel, cause that place is pretty funny.

Re: “Memphis’ Turn

I had to stop taking this article seriously when you mentioned a Chessecake Factory.

But since you mentioned it: Knoxille got one before you too.

Re: “Memphis’ Turn

Incorrect. The Cheesecake Factory is not only at Franklin's Cool Springs Galleria (which I live less than a mile from,) but they ALSO have the one in Green Hills.

Re: “I’m Not Sexist, But ...


It's funny you say that, because I post on another forum that's heavily Tea Party. They think I'm a flaming Liberal, where here I'm considered Conservative.

Anyway, on that forum, they are struggling to find a GOP candidate that's conservative enough, and they're flat out convinced that the only way the GOP gets back the White House is if they can get a candidate on the ticket that's MORE conservative.

The reality is, those that actually run the country nationally are not all that different from each other, and it ticks off the hardcore liberal and conservative bases equally. How far apart do you think Chris Christie or Jeb Bush is from Hillary Clinton on the political spectrum? Not all that far in reality.

Re: “What They Said (April 16, 2015)


I would bet that the Liberals of Tennessee would be happy to have Haslam over the alternative. Haslam at least has a little bit of sense about him in that he's a business first man who doesn't get caught up in all the petty religious/social politics of much of the Southern portion of the GOP.

I can think of the alternative type of governor for this state, and it leads to us looking a whole lot more like Mississippi in all the ways you don't want to look like Mississippi.
