Re: “Start Seeing Trolleys (But Not Ride Them)

Said it many times, but messing with the cost and headache of the "vintage" trolleys and get some new ones. There are several reasons why airlines use 777s and not DC-3s.

Re: “Extreme Vetting at City Hall

Maybe someone else already suggested this and if so, no plagiarism intended:
Has anyone asked if the escorts are meant to "protect" the "city" from the "listee" or to protect the "listee" from the people in city hall? I know that there are probably a couple of people in at least one department on the 4th floor that would not mind if I were escorted right into the Mississippi.

Oak,

The comment section numbers are highly correlated to the fakeness of the work to which said comments are referring. The more fakeness, the more comments.

LoveBC,
This fair warning, I'm stealing your joke.

Re: “The Resistance: Memphis Activism Sprouts Everywhere

@LoveBC - I think all Memphis Flyer commenters are on the list by default. I know some wacky council members tried to get a list of Commercial Appeal commenters a few years ago. I don't think anybody ever took on the commenters from the Memphis Business Journal, but then again you rarely see any comments there anyway.

Re: “Jimmy Carter in town for North Memphis Home-Building Project

I have always liked Jimmy Carter although I usually vote a straight republican ticket.

Re: “Extreme Vetting at City Hall

@datGuy - Well see, what draws comments, is an article wherein there is some sort of philosophical debate amongst the gathered Memphis Flyer readership over said article's tone or substance. I think the reason nobody is saying much of anything, is that most everybody agrees with Bruce on this one. I know I do. And I can be one of the most disagreeable people you're ever likely to meet when the mood strikes me. So..

Re: “Commission Gets It Together

Does medical marijuana cause folks to crave mass quantities of hospital food?

Re: “The Resistance: Memphis Activism Sprouts Everywhere

I want to protest the Memphis Flyer for making their crossword puzzles too small. Am I on their escort list? I am going to start a chapter of SUBC, standing up for big crosswords.

Re: “Open Records, Immigrants, & Arts

I think it's years overdue on HB277/SB 1039, in all honesty. I want to know more about the bill on public access to police camera footage too.

Re: “Extreme Vetting at City Hall

Strickland being Strickland isn't worthy of comment. At this point we just take his ineptitude in understanding how the city works for granted.

@Cwabs "Yet" --- give it time. Dreamworks in the meantime.

That's right John. 2003 Ostrander-winner, but it was the opener in 2002.

Re: “Theatre Memphis Announces 2017-18 Season: From Shrek to Florence Foster Jenkins

I think 42nd Street was 2002. Season Opener.

Re: “Fly on the Wall 1461

I'm thinking 'Mae Beavers Watch' should be a continuing series. Actual events in her life could be dramatically recreated by local production staff with fuzzy hand puppets, and the video posted to YouTube. It would be an instant sensation. If anyone needs me to assist as an extra, I'll be the puppet that responds to her incisive queries with a noncommittal 'Merp!'. I think I've got it down.
