Re: “"I Love You Too, America": Memphians Prep for Life Under Trump

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.

Re: “River Records' Jerry Gibson Killed in Store

I left Memphis 10 years ago because it was such a piece of shit city. Jerry Gibson and I were friends for 40 years. What kind of low-life trash would rob a record store? What a pointless loss. I imagine the murderer is sitting around smoking the lat bit of crack he got from the money he stole from Jerry. I hope the murderer chokes on it all the way down to where he belongs. Jerry Gibson was a gentle soul who loved music and built his life around that love. Goodbye, buddy, hope you are with Elvis in rock 'n' roll heaven.

Re: “Grizzlies 88, Trail Blazers 86: Haiku Game Notes

If I recall correctly, Kenny Smith once said that when a team loses a game by a significant point differential, that's on the players. But when a team loses a close game, that's on the coach. We can debate the generality of that claim, but I do think that there's something to be said about coaching in tight games. And in the Grizzlies case, they always see to win close games. While this was often true in past seasons, what they are doing this year with a depleted roster and a lot of inexperienced players is on a whole different level. Coach Fizdale is getting unexpected production from players who, quite frankly, I thought would be washed out of the NBA by now. And his system seems to have elevated the play of his stars: Conley and Gasol. I can't wait to see what he's able to do with Parsons when (or if) he gets healthy again. Also, winning games against beatable opponents is also a sign of good coaching, I believe. It suggests that the team is disciplined, focused, and executing to the best of its ability.

As for Gasol, I'm surprised to see that he barely cracks top the 10 of centers in the league when he's ranked according to various analytics and fantasy stats. The eyeball test suggests otherwise, as appears to be he's having another All-NBA year. What he's doing in crunch time is particularly impressive. In fact, that's one area where the analytics appear to reflect what I've been seeing on the court. According one site that measures clutch stats, Gasol is the 5th most clutch player so far this season. Would the Griz have a record of 16-8 with any other center in the league? Cousins and White side are stat machines, and Towns is already averaging 20/10. But I'd take Gasol's intangibles over any other center all day long.

@Cl - You don't use calculus equations to convince the mule to pull the line on the mill when you're making molasses. But a carrot or an apple might work. Depends. They can be willful if they sense any weakness in their master.

Re: “Here Comes the 'Ikea Effect'

I received an Ikea catalog in the mail today. It's 326 pages, very well bound on high quality gloss paper. They dropped some serious bucks putting this together as well as mailing them out. Ikea is making a serious commitment to this area.

Nightcrawler,
Some folks had a great time the past eights. With me it was a wash, the train don't care who the engineer is. There is more to reality than your or my experience. Have someone change the combo on your gun safe, true believers always take it the hardest.

Furniture, shmurniture; I'm looking forward to the meatballs. And, the restaurant looks like it'll be the biggest bargain, next only to Costco's pizza and hot dogs.

Re: “River Records' Jerry Gibson Killed in Store

Back in the 90s, I spent many a happy afternoon poking around in Jerry's shop. He was always up for conversation, and it was always a good time. I thought of him often. I was surprised to learn that he was still running the place, at least until yesterday. Rest in peace, Jerry Gibson. You made Memphis a better place to live.

Re: “Pin and Bear It

If we can survive eight agonizing and dismal years of Obama, surely we can survive another eight years of Trump.

Who knows? Our net worth might rise and our pursuits of happiness and broader liberties could be less encumbered, too. We'll see.

[Charlie, your above comment is probably the best one from you that I can recall. Bravo!]
