Re: “Faulkner and Yoknapatawhpa in Oxford

At first, Faulkner sounds like the sort of thing you'd hear at Urban Outfitters, but dig a little deeper and you realize that he was actually a badass writer.

Re: “The Buccaneer To Reopen Under New Management

Strait Shooter,
Take the risk. If I hadn't, I never would have experienced The Club Paradise, 1975. Although this will not be anywhere near as cool.

Re: “13 Percent of Tennesseans Without Broadband Internet Access

Because those without access are the poorest in our state and most in need of access.

Re: “The Night They Raided the Highland Strip

Jerry Martin
I was just going back to those good old days, I would hop the train to Beale St, to party. After I've read so much,now these days I guess I just really wanted to see what I was doing down there, and so many memories come back to me. This was back in the 68s to 72. I was one of those addicts. My choice was Heroin. First type of drug i had ever tried & I fell in love with it.
I have been back there. Much better than the late 60s.

Re: “The Buccaneer To Reopen Under New Management

I'm curious. How is this place in terms of racial diversity? Seriously. Diversity of the audience and the performers? Is it pretty much exclusively a "white" hangout? Asking because, as a non-white, that will help me decide whether this place is worth a visit.

Re: “'Pork Report' Targets Civil Rights Museum, Zoo, City Council

If that's the extent of the Memphis pork The Beacon Center found one thinks they've under-delivered.

13%? How is this newsworthy?

Re: “'Pork Report' Targets Civil Rights Museum, Zoo, City Council

This current Memphis City Council is shameful. Sadly, there's too few of us voters who pay attention to this crap so our city government continues its long history of ignoring what the citizens want done.

Re: “Council Passes Final Greensward Agreement

I agree with Ceylon and Jeff. By January, 2019, does anyone honestly expect there to be any Greensward remaining?

Re: “Sad!

@Pack

Sure could be the case, Pack. How much of a factor that huge student debt load is, I don't know how to quantify. I do know the ever increasing burden of regulations is not helping. Certainly capitalism must be regulated, but it is a judgement call on how much, and the pendulum always swings too far on either side. I would like to see illegal immigration brought into better control, too. Like other posters, I have driven by construction projects and seen who is working as craftsmen. Could be wrong, of course, but I bet a whole bunch of then are not legal immigrants. So when the BLM complains that part of the problem is poverty brought about by lack of jobs, I do wonder. And yes, I know that employers and the Chamber of Commerce are complicit.

Re: “Sad!

Apop, I really believe we're in a long-term systemic period of slow growth, regardless. Millenials can't buy starter homes because of too much student loan debt, that puts a big damper on the real estate industry, which has always been a sector that helped lead higher growth. Among many other systemic factors that we're facing.

Re: “Sad!

@ A Nonie

There is a bright side if Hillary is elected. She is in the pocket of Wall Street. If she is President, I think we will see a lessening of regulation, a much more business friendly administration and the economy can get out of this pitifully slow growth mode we have been in the last few years.

Re: “Sad!

People who support Trump, because they think NAFTA, globalization, and unchecked illegal immigration is ruining the jobs market in America, aren't necessarily racist. They might be. But there are people who would rather have a marginally crazy guy who wants to change all that, than a proven liar and defender of the status quo.

Re: “Greensward Plan Heads to Council

"I think what galls the most is that these bunch of hippies actually got some of what they want. That's just not the proper order of things."

Winner, winner, chicken dinner. Same reason why the GOP wouldn't support Obamacare, even though it was their idea. Can't ever let the "other side" win. Ever.
