Re: “Checking Your Privilege

When I qualified for government cheese and peanut butter in a can lo these many years ago, I worked an average of 84 hours a week doing two full time jobs AND was taking full time classes at college. I never talked about checking privileges back then. I just tried to make sure my kids didn't starve.

I miss that peanut butter in a gallon paint can though. That shit was good.

Re: “Checking Your Privilege

Privilege: assuming that I am working hard and deserve everything I have, yet everyone else isn't.

Re: “Memphis is Ugly. Cleveland Still Uglier, According to BS List

As someone who has lived all over the world, Memphis women, particularly those who trace their lineage to northern Mississippi, are the hottest on the planet. Whoever wrote this, is certifiably insane. Disregard any and all information from them, as it must be fundamentally flawed and without merit.

Re: “Revisions of Overton Gateway Plan Revealed

I'd like to see a ring of high rises surrounding Overton Park similar to Central Park. These people would definitely lose it were I in charge. But, seriously, let's look at the underlying assumptions at play. Developers built 2 story single family homes near this location in the 1920s. Does that mean that anything taller than 2 stories is forbidden from being built for the rest of time? Must the Arts and Crafts style be used in this neighborhood forevermore? What if I want to build rowhouses a la Boston or DC? That is what you really mean when saying a new development must be consistent with neighborhood character. I find that opposed to the principle of liberty.

Re: “Contemporary Media Inc. Hires Michael Donahue

I'm so happy to hear this! I don't like Gannett and think Mr. Donahue will be an excellent fit with Contemporary Media. Looking forward to reading his pieces and/or his photography.

I am originally from Baltimore. We tended to drink a lot so everyone looked beautiful.

Re: “State Outsourcing Contract Signed Early, Seen As 'Betrayal of Public Trust'

LoveBC
Ditto. I've worked for government, non profits and private business. The only way the last two can compete with a well run government operation is for management to be involved directly in the day to day affairs. Profits to investors and boards means reduced efficiency.

If the government operation is poorly run, we have a more immediate chance (I didn't say a good chance) of affecting a change than trying to hack our way thru the structures of the latter two.

Re: “State Outsourcing Contract Signed Early, Seen As 'Betrayal of Public Trust'

I have worked for three different government agencies and am familiar with contractors. Some do good jobs, some don't.

I sincerely believe that an agency is more likely to land a contract by lobbying more than performance - literally greasing palms and/or promising fat jobs to bureaucrats after retirement from government.

Government cannot run without contractors. I get that. Let's make sure the taxpayers dollar is not being wasted .

Re: “Contemporary Media Inc. Hires Michael Donahue

Hope it wasn't too much of a pay drop. Nice to see someone up in years land on their feet after losing a job. Let's face it, that is a nightmare for older people like me.
