Oaktree, do you mean let's keep the trains running on time?

What a great exhibit idea! Love your comments Grace Stewart! Wish I lived closer to see the show! (NJ).

Re: “Not My Problem

As the Buddhists like to point out, it really doesn't matter how we got here. We are here, now. How we react to that immutable fact, is a reflection of our character. And I am officially tired of saying I told you so.

Now. Let's try to keep whatever nervous breakdown that the elites in government and the mainstream media are having, from putting the train off the rails shall we?

Re: “Not My Problem

Nightcrawler, the progressives ran Bernie Sanders. A good rant shouldn't overreach itself.

Re: “Not My Problem

Well, I'm sure thankful that a forked-tongue, self-enriching, foul-mouthed, career public trough feeder who is still under investigation for her illegal "home server" and her "pay to my foundation for future payback" is not my problem, either.

We have Trump because the Democrat Pro(re)gressives ran the absolute worst candidate ever in their brief history.

It is what it is.

Re: “Commercial Appeal Eliminating Paid Freelance Writers

@Don - I'm a shorter-than-six feet guy who only flies when going from state to state or continent to continent, and I still abhor the cramped seating strategy of current national airlines. It's dangerous to peoples' health actually, not just a convenience issue.

As to the regular Memphis Flyer reader's view on deregulation, you can find my criticisms in earlier articles here, if you bother to look. And I'm a regular.

In general, if you postulate this to be a more leftish than rightish rag, you might expect it to advocate MORE regulation rather than LESS. The arguments on cost being the only important characteristic of a salable commodity, are usually made by more rightish than leftish ones, and even then, it's only people who don't really understand consumer purchasing behavior who would make such a stupid assumption.

After all, there are no shortages of people who buy BMWs and artisanal cheeses.

Re: “Living Colors: "Other People's Happiness" is a Well Made Play

I think so to. It needs to find some distinguishing characteristics still. But the foundation is good-- tried and true.

Saw last weekend Saturday and while a little passive in some spots I found this to be a very moving and relatable play. Bravo to all involved!!

Re: “Commercial Appeal Eliminating Paid Freelance Writers

Don Back From Texas, why in the hell would you assume such a stupid thing? Does putting words in other people's mouths make your own drool any the less asinine?

Re: “Proposed Rehab On Cooper Gets Shot Down, New Bar Gets the Green Light

If JourneyPure's argument before the LUCB was based on need alone, then they should be refunded any money they spent on their representative. The LUCBs decisions are not based on need (at least they are not supposed to allow that to enter the equation), but rather if the use being proposed conforms to the existing neighborhood or supports some plan or vision for the area. In this case, I think they got it right. Genesis House on Bellevue is a good example. Is it a necessary and critical service- Yes. Is it hard on the surrounding neighborhood- also yes.
JourneyPure is a for-profit company seeking to attract clientele from across the city and region. As such, their business model is not necessarily location sensitive. Thus, they could just as easily locate to any other area where building and/or land prices fit within their business model and presumably with decent access. I can think or several areas in the city that would likely satisfy those criteria and where there are few if any nearby residential uses.

Re: “Commercial Appeal Eliminating Paid Freelance Writers

@Oak:

As a 6-2 frequent flyer, I'm an informed consumer of airliner seating and would note that it's a slightly different commodity from the others this wise: there ARE larger seats up front if you want one.....at prices that are a much cheaper today than coach was 25 years ago. One can't help but observe that these cheaper seats are the result of de-regulation: average Joes can fly more cheaply now, and pilots make less than ever.....something I'd guess that most Flyer readers would approve.

Re: “The Past for the Future

I welcome this truth telling about our past. Just as South Africa and Germany have made great strides in dealing with their historical truth, we as a nation, me as a white woman, we as communities wanting healing, benefit from facing our past and acknowledging it together. I appreciate all the efforts being made to illumine the past with what can be healing, transformative light.

Re: “Wine-speak

Lol. This is ridiculous. I know wine experts and they have opened up my world to a great adventure that is wine and spirit tasting. Some people are full of bullshit but not true experts. They help take you on a journey and they walk beside you to help you find something that will help beautify a meal you slaved over for an unforgettable experience. Don't make a mockery of a true profession. You seem to want MORE snobs in the world with your How-To Speak BS instructional. Less snobs please.

Re: “Transgender in Memphis

rmsk, the difference between the two is one may be considered self mutilation the other mutilates another. One is a crime and the other is none of your fucking business, sweetie. Learn some boundaries.

People today are being indulged in bizarre behavior. Next, people born as pedophiles will be celebrated and encouraged.

Re: “Donald Trump: The Manchurian Candidate

Have we forgotten already that Hillary, using her power as Secretary of State, facilitated the sale of 1/5th of American uranium supply to the Russians through the Canadian mining giant Uranium One? And this coincided with a massive contribution from Uranium One to the Clinton Foundation totaling $2.35 million, a "donation" that wasn't publicly disclosed despite an agreement with the Obama Administration to do so. It's not fishy that every major political publication has a story insinuating Trump is a Manchurian candidate, all on cue. Project Mockingbird? Or is this the end result of the recent congressional repeal of the law prohibiting domestic propaganda? If you haven't noticed, it is the our own government acting suspiciously in a Soviet manner.. This is not cool.
