Re: “No More Copy Editors at CA; Jobs Outsourced to Nashville

Unions are like gov't, they both exist by tolerance of their constituents until they reach the size where smaller clusters of those constituents can be dumped on and unsupported... Your union is now concerned with the 'dues paying members' that are still there. And gov't interest is in taxpayers that are paying while buying the votes of the tax takers.... Keep voting the way you've always voted and you'll keep getting what you've always got.

Re: “Zoo: Mayor Can Ask State to Allow Trams in Old Forest

@DG In case no one explained this to you during your education, calling someone 'childish' in order to demean their argument, is an ad hominem.

Re: “Zoo: Mayor Can Ask State to Allow Trams in Old Forest

The zoo is getting prime real estate at Parkway and Poplar that earmarked for a photography museum. The folks pushing that idea have conceded and have started looking elsewhere. So, yeah the zoo is inconveniencing a great bunch of folks by not compromising.

Re: “Zoo: Mayor Can Ask State to Allow Trams in Old Forest

Actually Firefox, removing the NBF statue is not illegal as it is not a war memorial.

Re: “Zoo: Mayor Can Ask State to Allow Trams in Old Forest

@Nanny, great. That doesnt make the zoo not a top draw as I said from beginning. It remains a trivial distinction and unrelated to running a tram as a legitimate option in the parking solution for a gem of Memphis.

I also wont dispute that number with an ad hominem attack like some by suggesting Bass Pro has every reason to lie too. That would be irrelvant and childish

Re: “Ghostbusters

Great movie! Stay seated until the credits have ended. I was pleased to see Cecily Strong in the movie, also. Chris Hemsworth's best part is contained in the closing credits.

Re: “Zoo: Mayor Can Ask State to Allow Trams in Old Forest

Firefox, Zoo member, mouseketeer, whatever. I'm sure you have a really cool membership card. But the Zoo doesn't own the park so they gots your money, but the city and its citizens own the land. As long as Arlington is expanding it's city limits be sure to lay aside a little room for a little zoo.

Re: “Zoo: Mayor Can Ask State to Allow Trams in Old Forest

@Firefox - Actually, the OPC has many points of compromise, but sufficient to this argument, it will be losing a piece of the Greensward beyond the berm. A small piece, but the berm should isolate the rest of the turf, so it's a fair trade.

Here's a description:

As a zoo member I do... but thanks for verifying to me by your silence that the OPC did not compromise one iota in the mayor's plan!

Re: “No More Copy Editors at CA; Jobs Outsourced to Nashville

After working at CA from 64-70 in the advertising dept and going out on our 1.5 day Guild strike that collapsed I was told don't look forward to any promotions. So I moved on to education thank God for that. Feel sorry for CA employee's. The end is near.

Re: “Zoo: Mayor Can Ask State to Allow Trams in Old Forest

Firefox, since neither the statue nor the park is in Arlington, you really don't have much say.

Re: “Zoo: Mayor Can Ask State to Allow Trams in Old Forest

So much good commentary in these replies. Where to start? For those saying it's against the law to run a tram in the old forest, I would also say it's against the law to remove Nathan Bedford Forest's statue as well. But Memphis will try to get a waiver on that. Perfectly reasonable for the state to give a waiver to the zoo as well for the tram. This my folks is compromise. Please show me in the mayor's plan where there was ANY compromise by OPC?

Re: “Zoo: Mayor Can Ask State to Allow Trams in Old Forest

MEMTechie. Electric trams is a great idea, especially using a N Parkway entrance. But as been frequently pointed out, the zoo seeks to expand it's control and abuse of the park and trams within the park achieves that goal.

Re: “Zoo: Mayor Can Ask State to Allow Trams in Old Forest

Why not use a 100% electric tram so no incremental environmental impact since on existing roads and overflow problem solved? Cheaper than building/maintaining a new multilevel parking garage

Re: “New Views Show Progress of Big River Crossing

Big River Crossing is NOT "a neighbor to" the Harahan Bridge; it is PART OF the bridge. It is built on the northernmost of the Harahan's original three traffic decks, used for westbound highway traffic from 1916 to 1949; it and the southern deck (eastbound highway) have been bolted onto the truss containing the center deck (railroad) since the bridge was built, though the original surface of both highway decks (wooden with asphalt overlay) was removed shortly after the Memphis & Arkansas Bridge opened in 1949.

It also uses a concrete approach structure on the Harahan's Arkansas end, originally part of a causeway to West Memphis built by the Arkansas Highway Department (now AHTD) in the late 1920's to replace its original wooden causeway (a picture of which appears in another BRC YouTube video). It has been erroneously called the "abandoned exit ramp" for how it seemingly "connects" to I-55 next to the M&A; it actually closed with the highway decks after the M&A opened, years before I-55 replaced the rest of the causeway.

@ Datguy Bass Pro Shop brought three million people to the city of Memphis. Bass Pro Shop is the number one tourist destination in Memphis.

How can you have any pudding, if you don't eat your meat?

By asking the State for a special exception.
