I signed up & they sent me an email that they are postponing their Memphis launch but didn't give me a new launch date.

Re: “Memphians Dominate Democratic Leadership Positions in State House

Jackson, there is more to the narrative than just which ones are from Memphis. That was my point. Like I said above, it's nice to see Memphis taking the lead in resurrecting Democratic Party prominence statewide. But that comes in an important context, which is part and parcel of their choices in leadership. Without sufficient grassroots support in the rural areas, having a bright and energetic metropolitan contingent to prosecute Democratic Party initiatives simply will be too little too late. I've pointed out before why that is, but the readership of The Flyer is probably savvy enough to understand it thoroughly and completely by ern's deadpan sarcastic post. They don't need a diagram. Still, it needs to be talked about, because it's important. And thanks for the explanation.

Re: “New Plant to Bring 75 Jobs to Presidents Island

This is great news, but is this going in the same place where Cargill cut 440 jobs a couple of years ago? Just asking for clarity.

Re: “Mike Conley Suffers Back Fracture, Expected to Miss 6 Weeks

I have to assume at this point that Brandan Wright is the guy who just keeps calling in sick to see how long the company will continue to pay him for not working.

I don't think he ever intends to play again, and I don't think he's really hurt. I think he just likes collecting a check and uses injuries that can't be quantified as an excuse to sit.

Conley's loss, on the other hand, basically means the Grizzlies will be lucky to hang around and be near the playoff picture by the time he gets back. Maybe they can squeak in as an 8 or 7 seed. I just hope somehow that the Clippers end up on the other end of that if it works out, so that we can make a run at them (hopefully with a full complement of players though).

Re: “Memphians Dominate Democratic Leadership Positions in State House

Oak Tree, Craig Fitzhugh is a gentleman's gentleman and about as distinguished and photo-worthy as a state legislator can be. His picture has appeared in this space many a time. This story is about the six Memphians (out of 12 available offices and 25 Democratic state reps) who were gifted with a party office in the legislature. That's the ONLY reason the great Craig Fitzhugh isn't pictured here. SHEESH!

Re: “Mike Conley Suffers Back Fracture, Expected to Miss 6 Weeks

I must agree with kaye. Have you ever notice how nice the Grizzlies bench smells.... I mean the guys who seldom play, not the actual seating.

Needs some traction and megadose vitamin D. He'll be alright.
Let the healing begin...

Re: “New Plant to Bring 75 Jobs to Presidents Island

Sounds interesting. I wonder what it smells like?

Re: “Mike Conley Suffers Back Fracture, Expected to Miss 6 Weeks

Truth is never negative.

However, labeling news that is true but that you don't like as negative so you can ignore it is really, really stupid.

A positive outlook ain't gonna fix a broken back, bruh.

Re: “Blind Trust

Oak,
I think vampirism is quite common in foreign relations and its various ministers. Check out Kerry, Rice, Gromyko... Most dealings are done indoors with low lights.... I think we are onto something. Maybe Cruz is ideal.

Re: “Hornets 104, Grizzlies 85: Everybody('s) Hurts

With three games in the next four days, I'm already worried about tomorrow's game at Toronto. It has the feel of a 'sit everybody and take your whuppin' game. Hopefully I'm wrong.

Re: “Memphians Dominate Democratic Leadership Positions in State House

What doesn't scream out 'white working class', is any Democratic policy to cultivate their votes. That seems pretty clear. They won't even show the guy's face.

Re: “Blind Trust

@ern - I think Cheney is actually dead, and all we see on television is an articulated wax figure from Madame Tussaud. Or he may just be that pale because he is a vampire. In any event, he couldn't stand the heat of the full sun, and thus it is physically impossible for him to hold the office.
