Re: “Tigers 77, Bowling Green 3

Hopefully we'll be catching Ole Miss at a good time, in between games against Georgia and Arkansas. If I'm Ole Miss, I wouldn't even worry about Memphis. Go ahead and coast this week in your game prep Rebs.

Re: “Mural Project Brings Hope to Affluent Neighborhood

And if anyone sees or hears about someone "finding" a black and gray dog, female, about 40 pounds, built kind of like an Australian sheepdog, as sweet as she can be, please call Rosecrest apartments or the police.

Her real companion/owner, whom she loved fiercely, is seriously disabled, and when he took his motorized scooter across the street to the pharmacy and left her at the door, someone stole her. He is desolate.

Re: “Mural Project Brings Hope to Affluent Neighborhood

Thank goodness for articles like this.

Why, there hasn't been a shooting less than 200 yards from our Midtown building since Monday.

http://www.commercialappeal.com/news/crime/man-shot-on-union-ave-at-mclean-3cdfadc5-a9d6-3909-e053-0100007fd041-393994211.html

And you certainly can't hear fear-mongers on our "secure building" common area TVs - the two in the laundry and fitness rooms were stolen about a month ago and the huge one in the party room a week after that.

And just because your friends are recently mugged on Madison Av, the police tell a robbery victim the same guy has done 6-8 other armed robberies right there (further west on Madison), and the son of a friend has a gun held to his head and robbed near Central Gardens (at least the second time this has happened there), no need to fear.

And if you're shot down like a dog by some thug, you can be sure the media will portray your death as just one of those little things one has to expect these days.

How sad for our society that we are being trained to accept as routine and expected what was once abhorrent.

Re: “Former Love In Action Leader Marries His Same-Sex Partner

We had been married for a while and things were OK, I was in love with her, she was crazy about me, but later on everything changed and by complicated exterior circumstances which did not have to do with us, we decided to pause for a while, but still remain friends. But in the end, she started getting cold: she treated me as if she did not know me, she acted too immature to the point where she did not even say hi to me when we bumped into each other (we had the same circle of friends). Of course, it hurt so badly, I wanted to kill her. Then out of nowhere she disappeared. I wrote her for her birthday and she replied little. Some of my “friends” saw she had left and started going cold with me too, as if it was my fault that she had left. The few that were still my close friends and still hers, told me she had moved on, that it was best not to make contact with her. Then out of the blue some months later she reappeared, but still acting like a douche. I was suffering emotionally of course, because we had never even had a divorce, it was just supposed to be a pause, so I did not know how to react, what to feel, what to do… anyway, she kept coming over and over on the weekends, and I had to deal with my “friends” who the moment they saw her, immediately left me and went over to her. Eventually, I decided to give up trying to restore anything with her as she was showing no signs of wanting me back, and started healing. Around four months after we had ended our relationship, I find out she is with another guy! That was when I knew I had not gotten over her, because I cried, I was mad, it was just a feeling of “oh, poor me”. I could not stand losing her to some other guy, I decided to go diabolical (i.e. via spell). I got involved with a lot of fraudulent so-called spell casters on the internet who ripped me off my money without getting a result as to what I wanted. I almost lost my sanity. Just as I almost was giving up, one faithful morning, I received a mail from one of the spell castes I had applied for spell with but never got a reply all along. He made me to understand that he could not attend to all his costumers then because it was that time of the year for his annual fellowship with his ancestors for the renewal of his spiritual and supernatural gift. I told him not to worry about the spell anymore, that I was done with all of them fake spell casters. He assured me of his 100% genuine work of this gift which he possessed. I decided to give it a try. After spending about 2500 USD (which was due to my inability to provide a whole lot of materials which he needed for the spell process), I am happy to announce to the world that I have gotten back my wife and we are expecting our first baby. All thanks to Dr. Kene Dilli. All you out there tired of all these fraudsters that call themselves spell casters (seeking to rip were they have not sown) and you require legitimate spell for whatsoever purpose, contact Dr. Kene Dilli on his email address; kenedillitemples AT yahoo DOT com.NOTE: PLEASE RE-WRITE THE EMAIL ADDRESS IN ITS STANDARD FORM.

Sarcasm is known to cause blindness and impotence. An email from a friend told me so.

Why is it people with least capability are the 1st to run around saying others are uneducated? Does the assertion magically make you more intelligent?

Writing your own story so you can control the narrative is NOT journalism, sorry. I think the public will see pretty quickly that this is PR and not reporting.

Re: “City's Zoo Parking Plan Gets A 'Nope, Nope, Nope'

The zoo used to claim only needing the GW for 65 days a year so what is the big deal? Now we will have empty tailgating sized parking places for 300 days a year on what was once a beautiful serene public playground. Bait and switch indeed.

Ray,
Mia may be a product of Memphis Schools, but she probably learned proper us of capitalization and paragraphs by third grade. But I understand how human communication can be tricky for someone from your galaxy.

Re: “City's Zoo Parking Plan Gets A 'Nope, Nope, Nope'

We now know some of the Greensward will be paved over. That was one thing the City Council resolution does make clear. It says:

“Upon completion of construction, no further encroachment for any parking, temporary or permanent will be allowed in the REMAINING Greensward.”

The public now has plans available to view and study. Anyone can see the push is on to take the Greensward. We will lose 2+ acres of the Greensward. Why should we lose any of the Greensward? No mention is made of the 200+ parking spaces provided on North Parkway and no consideration is given to shuttling zoo visitors from off site.

Worst of all, the planning and meetings regarding carving up the Greensward are done in secret with self- appointed citizen representatives who represent nobody. Bottom line, there is no public input into getting cars off the Greensward.

Nothing has changed. Keep the Save the Greensward signs up. The Zoo will continue to park on the Greensward until there is an incentive to get off or they finally pave it over.

@Steve - Conceptually, life is merely a series of tubes, one connected to the other. So probing deeply, Anna Lingus is indeed related to Colonel Angus.
