Just to be clear, y'all's main complaint about the CA is that you can no longer post snarky erroneous shit anonymously?
I'm not much at math, but I'd say it's a cry for help.
Now I am a fan of Ed Stanton, and glad he is in on this new initiative. But I don't think Jim Strickland likes him so much that he changed his name to Jim Edward L. Stanton III.
It took me two days to finally get it done when I called some months ago, Charles. I did like Timeout4. If they would have left things alone on the comments, I would probably still be there. But there is no reason to give my data to Facebook. Especially when it isn't even a Memphis news paper anymore. Local control will be needed to make it successful.
Just get a subscription to The Memphis Daily News for business stuff, and read the Flyer for local drama. The CA is a zombie, walking on inertia alone. Someone needs to put it out of its misery.
Agree with Timeout. The USA Today format just makes one of those two newspapers redundant.
Hey! What is 23 minus 17?
"In this temple,
as in the hearts of the people
for whom he saved the Union,
the memory of Abraham Lincoln
is enshrined forever."
CL and Jeff,
I gave up on the CA when they took their comments section to a Facebook setup. I swing by to take a (free) look every now and again. There doesn't seem to be much left but a shell of a newspaper. Making it look like the USA TODAY made it even worse.
Which way is Asgard?
I tried to cancel my digital subscription to the CA today because I just find myself not using it. However, like its crappy website, you can not cancel it via the website...you have to call. I wonder if there is anyone there to pick up the phone though?
Read harder Bric, start with your own stuff.
".. clearly ambiguous and muddled thoughts..."
It's good to have BaBs commenting around here, if for no other reason than to sit back and enjoy the creative and inexplicable self-contradictions.
They really tie the room together.
Hopefully they will extend the trail all the way to Wal-Mart.
Well, that's just, like, your opinion, man.
I don't know if the Lincoln memorial is considered a memorial to that war by anyone. Why not let's ask Jeff. He seems to be REALLY knowledgeable on the subject and appears to have clearly ambiguous and muddled thoughts on the issue.
I do know that the Lincoln Memorial is considered to represent Nationalism.
As for your new neighbors, would it be more to your liking if they were all of the same opinion on everything?
As a 7th+ generation Mississippian who has recently moved back I get a big kick out of the variety of opinion among my neighbors.
Lincoln fought in the Black Hawk War, so is the Lincoln Memorial a war memorial to that conflict? Reaction formation is a bitch
@Grove - Yeah things change. Thank God. And I mean that just how I wrote it.
Thats really pathetic.
Crossing that bridge on a bicycle at night with the lights changing and the fireworks exploding in the background was one of the most beautifully surreal and psychedelic moments of my life. It was totally worth coming back and doing the ride again after the original opening to see it.
Speaking of which, I was the fat guy with the curl on a basket bike rushing the bridge when they first cut the ribbon.
