Re: “Tigers 62, UAB 55

I have to work two jobs in Memphis to equal what I made at one job in Atlanta. So I could attend a basketball game. Here in Memphis the income for people who want to really go to a pro game or high level college game is just not there. It's sad but true. But those that can attend choose to boycott the Memphis Tigers even though Josh Pastner is no longer there.

Re: “Tigers 62, UAB 55

I wish I had the income to come to the games. I work two jobs, so I don't have the time to attend a Tigers' game. But if I had the money I would be at the Tigers games and the Grizzlies games, even though I'm a New York Knicks fan. When I lived in Atlanta I had season tickets to the Hawks games, but I made a lot more money than I make in Memphis.

Re: “River Records' Jerry Gibson Killed in Store

I saw him just two weeks ago Kroger. He was telling me about retiring next month, after 50 years in the record business. He was my friend for almost 30 years. Never met a nicer human being in my life. If they ever catch who did this, I hope the cops take em to some alley and blow their brains out of the backs of their skulls. I truly do.

Re: “River Records' Jerry Gibson Killed in Store

I've spent a lot of time in these places from Amoeba to Bleecker Street. River Records was always a favorite stop. I was in there only a few months ago. Over the years I enjoyed Jerry's sense of wonder about music and vinyl collecting. He was a genuine Memphis character and a truly loved the music and vinyl in particular. He was always interested in what your personal musical interests were, what you were looking for, and where you could find it, when he didn't have it in his inventory. There are very, very few shop keepers like Jerry, anymore. May he rest in peace.

Re: “River Records' Jerry Gibson Killed in Store

What a sad loss. I pray to God that the person(s) involved in this evil act are quickly found and prosecuted. If you go to Google Maps and type in the store's address you will see what looks like Jerry sitting outside enjoying the day with a friend.

@CL - I suspect that a lot of people with common sense would sound similar to AP or myself, if they posted here, but most of them have enough common sense not to do so...

Marilyn Mosby as AG would be worse.

APop,
Sorry, sometimes I get you and Oak confused, easy to understand why.

jrgolden,
That reminds me of the salvation in Orwell's "War of the Worlds".
Oak,
Nice piece, something I've witnessed in uber city west coast and tiny town South. But Jeff Sessions as AG, holy christ.

Re: “River Records' Jerry Gibson Killed in Store

It's strange how people who do kind things for others, habitually, like Jerry did, are actually at a higher risk of some deranged individual doing them harm. I guess that's part of the nature of evil. It goes after the good ones...

@jrgolden, you are one of the few people that actually understands how government works. The bureaucrats and the line people actually run government. Politicians care more about photo ops and drama queening than actually learning how to do anything.

If I may ask Bruce's indulgence, this is one of the most cogent articles on the election I have seen.

Re: “River Records' Jerry Gibson Killed in Store

What a focused and unique love he had for life/music! My heart goes out to all hurting because of this loss. Please, please MPD and Memphians let's get this murderer to justice. <3

Pay close attention to the cabinet picks, and their preexisting policy positions, of the President-elect. Then think about these people in the aggregate. Long term. Hopefully, the bureaucracy will be able to minimize the damage.

The next two years will be "interesting." On so many levels.

So horribly sad! Not to mention, horrifically evil! May God rest his soul, and comfort his family and friends.
