I imagine he has better things to do than schmooze with a bunch of self-congratulatory political hacks, whose idea of being a Democrat (Big D) involves avoiding the actual practice of democracy (little d) by means of corrupted party officials and 'super delegate' shenanigans.
We have 'more important things to worry about', as some here are wont to reminds us about, ad nauseum. There happens to be a lot of work to do in this wild and wooly river city, where there is Trouble.
Yeah, trouble galore.
Woodson J. Savage, the Flyer's circulation has remained steady for years, with a 92%-95% pickup rate each week, a stat that ranks among the highest in alt-weekly papers in the country.
Presumably he's working to improve this city, unlike a few of his predecessors & Board members.
I've got the bowling shirt for Active Bolt & Screw. It don't fit no more.
...if your car has ever been hit by an unlicensed/uninsured driver.
On the other hand...if you've almost hit several people with your car in one day because no one uses the crosswalks on Madison or Poplar.
You know that the one eyed homeless guy at Walgreens who you give change to is named Bill.
My better half and I decided about six months ago to stop our Sunday only delivery. The CA had very little to offer with all of the free digital news available.

...if at least 1/4 of your neighbors and in-town family members work at FedEx and if some of those who don't work there refer to the colossal FedEx hub as "Fred's plantation."
I can't wait. There could be a whole reality TV show on the zany antics of confused Memphians that will be caused by that funky light. Somebody needs to record it.
Or maybe a historic Powerpoint presentation, "Weird Arrows on Union Avenue".
"..you know that McLean is not pronounced "McLane."
Wha? Errybody I know says McLane. What's is supposed to be?
You remember the sign that proclaimed "Dog Stain Remover" on Poplar east of Hollywood.
"..Your coworker is the aunt of your former roommate's first-grade teacher..."
Hmmm... those coins look like pills to me. I don't think I like it. At least make the coins look like pieces of eight or something. And I agree with Clyde. The tree rocks.
Errybody has a Silky('s) story
"Man, you people in Memphis sure love Fireball and Jameson." *comment heard more than once.
That cypress tree logo was/is awesome. I hope we see it again.
