Re: “John DeBerry: An Outlier on Vouchers

Funk,

So, you propose that everyone be forced to send their children, if any, to a federal school, kinda like we do with money.

Tell me, what, in your opinion, would be the ideal demographic mix of a typical pre-k/primary school and how wou you go about achieving that ideal demographic?

@AP - "..Moverhill is prime example of a troll..."

Simple troll, or stuffed marmot? Only his hairdresser knows for sure.

Re: “The Death of Suburbia

Downtown Memphis is now suburbia, or at least Midtown west. The real downtown is Poplar Avenue from around Perkins west into Germantown where Poplar and Kirby intersect (roughly). I work downtown, and most downtown workers appear to be lawyers, government employees, restaurant workers and a sprinkling of retail workers.

The Raymond James Building was bustling up until about five years ago, but with most of the brokers working from home (most of which probably live in G-town & C-town), the sit down restaurant and to go eatery have disappeared, along with the Regions branch. In other words, calling downtown Memphis the business district is a stretch.

I am a architectural nerd, I am glad to see a lot of the buildings restored, especially the Tennessee Brewery. Sure, it is cheaper to knock down and build from scratch (has anyone ever seen a McDonald's restored) than to fix up an older building, but a new building just can't get the funk of an old building.

I am hoping that something can be worked out the complex legal, asbestos and whatever else issues with the Sterick Building, and now the 100 N. Main Building. I miss the good smells of the burger joint that used to be at the 100.

Re: “The Death of Suburbia

Oak: you challenging anyone for changing names is rich. How many different names, in how many different comment forums, do you post under? If knowing who you've been "dealing with" is so important to you, tell you what: start posting under your real name. That way we'll know who we're actually "dealing with."

As for calling me a "troll"---fake news.
