Re: “Changes at Ghost River

That "Prime market wants a story" is some BS sold by the designer.

Ghost River is the classic Memphis beer brand, it should have that feel. Instead it feels like a graphic design student went overboard on their rebranding project.

Re: “Here's Hillary!

At least she recognizes some of her limitations. Mrs. Clinton isn't gifted at public speaking. She should hire Obama's speech writer. His speech was as effective as Reagan's speeches. I don't remember specifics of Reagan's speeches, but I remember how they impressed me. The laundry list of policies and promises is useless information.

Re: “Sen. Bernie Sanders Addresses Tennessee Democrats

So, he's too lazy to go to each state.

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

Oh come on. Really? Strickland's serving in a nonpartisan position, in a city that desperately needs good MEMPHIS-centric leadership. I for one appreciate the fact he's not taking a week off of his day job to get time on stage with Corey Booker and Katy Perry (as much as I DO like Katy Perry). Seriously though, Strickland''s first priority is to his city, not his party. Gimme a break.

Re: “Sen. Bernie Sanders Addresses Tennessee Democrats

He wasn't in Tennessee. He was addressing the Tn, Mn, and Mi delegations at the DNC in Philly.

Re: “Sen. Bernie Sanders Addresses Tennessee Democrats

JimP, the Senate is in recess until Sept 6, You could've Googled this unless it was a rhetorical question. You can probably Google how many and which votes the three Senators mentioned have missed during the campaign season. You can contact their offices directly to find out just what the hell they're up to, if this is the purpose of your query.

Re: “Sen. Bernie Sanders Addresses Tennessee Democrats

Doesn't Sanders have a "full time job" as U.S. Senator for VT? Here he's in TN. I heard today that CO wants him to come there to promote universal health care. He's spent much of the last year running for President. When does he do his job for the citizens of VT?
This makes me wonder, what are Corker & Alexander doing today for the citizens of TN? Are they working for us today or off supporting the RNC or some personal venture?

Re: “Tennessee Senator Quotes Abraham Lincoln In His Support of Cockfighting

@WG

You left out the part where the lives of the farmers are at risk to save a chicken ONLY LONG ENOUGH FOR THE HSUS TO KILL THE CHICKEN. The chicken may die in the fight, but contrary to what was said earlier, it is not as long and painful as it would be if they got loose in the yard and did it on their own. The HSUS is gonna kill them....even the hens. If left alone, there is a good chance that the chicken will live a long prosperous life ....with many hens. I urge all that do not know the personality of a gamecock to get to know one before you jump to conclusions. I have changed the minds of several people that have come to my place and seen how the majestic fowl live. If you consider yourself to be one that accepts people for "who they are", you must learn "who these gamecocks are".

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

... you believe grammar requires one to follow most adjectives with the word "ass."

Yepper...and it's usually apropos...

I didn't move in from the county(Oakhaven) until the 4th grade. Always felt lacking somehow.

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

Midtown Frank - that's because for so many native Memphians, the peak of their human career, the climax of their entire life took place during high school. Life was never so good, nor will it ever be again, for them, and so, mentally and spiritually, they remain there, only aging outwardly (and that, rapidly).

Ignore them, and welcome home.

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

@MidtownFrank - Consider yourself adopted, Frank. At least Memphis isn't as bad as Brooklyn. You live here long enough, you get the rhythm. Only the dead know Brooklyn.

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

Lots of land for sale all over Desoto County. Put it down there with Elvis' ranch. Probably get economic incentives from Miss' Hippi, too.

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

It has been made clear to me on several occasions that you can not "be from Memphis" if you did not go to high school here.
