Seriously, Gannett, until this moment, I think I never really gauged your cruelty or your recklessness. Have you no sense of decency, at long last?

I bet he had a different hair style while at CBHS.

Re: “Photo Contest Focuses on Memphis Bikes

My son and I checked out the Art of the Bicycle while in the Chicago Museum of Science and Industry a few years ago. One of the bikes was a road bike with a highly polished wood frame with Shimano Dura Ace components. Now that was a fine looking piece of machinery.

Union busting techniques from the bad ol' days have no place in the modern workplace. Shame on Gannett! I'll be adding Mike Jung, interim publisher, to the list of members of congress I'm contacting on a daily basis. What's one more call or email?

Re: “Revisions of Overton Gateway Plan Revealed

Dray - do you have examples of other times people in midtown have opposed new housing development?

Re: “Revisions of Overton Gateway Plan Revealed

People park on the street in Lea's Wood also. Like most of Midtown, there's typically one car in the driveway and another on the street. There's just not enough street available for apartment overflow parking.
And while less parking may be good urbanism, it's just not realistic. The folks that will live in these apartments will have cars. Many units will need two parking spots. It's absurd to expect twenty or more tenants to park on the street in the nearby residential area.
As to your point about renters, anyone living in Midtown lives among renters so it's crazy to suggest this is just some elitist anti-renter movement.
I personally do have concerns about how the property will look in about 10 years. The more units they build, the more expensive the maintenance. MRG doesn't have anything in their portfolio that eases my concerns about that.

That's sarcasm of course; they're monsters and probably left themselves open to a huge lawsuit by only firing women.

Gannett only fired women huh? Seems like a great plan. I'm sure that will work out for them.
