Re: “Silver Rights Movement

Mr Pop,
No chance there. Dad said if I tried to sneak back into his basement his new wife would call the cops, then something about tough love, Darwin and socialist child support laws. So I keyed his car in solidarity with small business owners in the body shop realm. At least Darrel's child will be able to afford community college.

Re: “Silver Rights Movement


Great idea. Stay close to Mom and Dad.

As you struggle for economic justice, Mom and Dad will always be there for you.

Re: “MEMFix Event Promotes Pinch Potential

Please update: the deal didn't fall through. There was never a "deal." The city announced that it was going to redevelop the Pinch as Phase 2 of the Pyramid project. That is still the plan. The article says "development now will likely happen through one-on-one deals with developers and individual property owners," but City Council has been told that there will be a master plan for redevelopment. The costs will be paid from sales tax revenues generated by Bass Pro at The Pyramid as part of the TDZ.

I think you missed the point once again, which hardly suprises me.

Re: “Confederate Parks: "It's Done" but It's Not Over

So Mr. Forrest and Wife are not going to be moved to a cemetery? And there is a law that prohibits them from ever being re-buried elsewhere?

Re: “UPDATE: Commercial Appeal Changes, 17 Laid Off

There is more real local news and investigative reporting on two pages of The Flyer than in the whole CA. I grew tired of the canned national news and the biased reporting in the CA. I cancelled my subscription twenty years ago. The CA is sold out to local politicians and bigwigs, and their advertisers. Their coverage of U of M sports has always been secondary to the area SEC schools. Good riddance.

I will miss Karen and William. Who are the photographers who were laid off?

Re: “Silver Rights Movement

I never get tired of listening to old white guys telling us how hard they've had it.

Re: “Tennessee Scores Low On New HRC State Equality Index

But Tennessean seems to hate on almost everything slightly different from starching marching fire and brimstone. So dont feel too isolated. There are several types of individuals on the fray the main stream at core creed, having a hard even getting hired, much less treated fairly. The state overall discriminates against long hair creatives and any thing non Xtian too. I think a common thread of lack of cultural literacy and a failure to understand religion and human decency should be allowed to marry.

It comes down to, can we educate Tennesseans to be decent to all types of people, in all aspects of life?

Re: “Into The Woods

I hoped this movie would end like 3 times before it actually did. Even Meryl Streep isn't enough to keep me sitting peacefully in a theater seat for more than an hour and a half.

He wasn't "named" starter, he was voted starter. Big (Spain) difference.

Re: “Silver Rights Movement

ArlingtonPop and tndph,
.....and then after we graduated we were $30,000 in debt, so a few more years of Ramen and/or mom's basement.

Re: “Silver Rights Movement


Yeah we can. I was working part time and going to school had a small apt I shared with two other guys. I lost the job and had to move back home.

I would have preferred the Ramen and cookies.

Re: “Silver Rights Movement

I think what Brunetto and tndph are pointing out, after a fashion, is that most of us view what is good for us as what is good for the economy. Class strife is as natural as gravity and the laws of supply and demand. What is economically necessary surely differs between the single mother with one child vs Octomon vs Donald Trump. We just have to decide with whom we share the most in common. And then a little purge here, a little compromise there and voila we have a workable economy.
