Re: “Planners Plan to Have a Plan: Memphis 3.0 Will Map City's Future

Julie,
Free market and capitalism are not he same thing. One thrives in competition, one seeks to eliminate it. One seeks to profit from product, the other seeks to profit by any means necessary.

Re: “Commercial Appeal Eliminating Paid Freelance Writers

We will miss Christine Gang (one of the only reasons---in addition to a LEGIBLE New York Times crossword puzzle---we still get the Sunday CA), but not Frederick Koeppel nearly as much, the jack of all trades who shilled for local "art" galleries, whose definition of "art" is whatever they can dupe well-heeled patrons with more money than taste to buy.

Re: “Commercial Appeal Eliminating Paid Freelance Writers

I also recently cancelled my subscription after about 30 years. Hated to do it but just not worth the effort to pick it up out of the drive and put it in the recycle bin.

Re: “Geniune Vetting of Trump Cabinet Nominees Needed

And let's not forget Clapper, with his history of lying to the American people, still doing his best to sabotage his replacement..

When do I get to vote on his sorry ass?

Re: “Geniune Vetting of Trump Cabinet Nominees Needed

It is passing strange, that Democrats on the national stage, having made this bed, now demur taking repose therein. After all, it was as obvious as the nose on your face that change needed to occur at this election cycle. Yet the nominee of the standing party was effectively a third term for that administration.

So now we observe their cries of disbelief and distress, when the victorious Republican party serves itself up a double helping of patronage. Which, laughably, the Democrats seems to think is out of bounds. After all THEIR history.

Excess is never a good thing. And this is most definitely a fact. But there seem to be those who would append that sentiment, and say, yes it's true... Unless it's your friends who get to call the tune.

That's the real upshot here, eh Bruce?

Re: “Geniune Vetting of Trump Cabinet Nominees Needed

Generally when your side isn't the one doing the picking, those other guys are all unqualified.

If you could have read some of the comments I've read on conservative blogs/sites over Obama's selections for Cabinet and other positions, they were very similar to Cohen's.

When your side isn't doing the picking, all of those picks are going to look bad.

Re: “Being There: No App For That

Thank you Bruce for reminding us to talk to advertisers when we are buying.

It's worth noting that indie bookstores across the country are experiencing a resurgence (an out of town owner did not help Booksellers). A well curated selection in a Midtown location (Burke's does not offer a good new book selection) would do quite well IMO. It's also worth looking at concepts that have worked elsewhere - this Dallas bookstore, cafe, bar, coffeehouse offers a free drink when you come pick up your book: match that Amazon.

No passing test will be enough to satisfy people like Steve Cohen.

Christine's column might be a better fit for Memphis Magazine. She should probably get in touch with the editor.

Re: “Being There: No App For That

I don't guess it would be possible for The Flyer to pick up Christine Arpe Gang's column? I miss that most of all. In the future I will be more cognizant of the advertisers in your paper.

@julie

So you're basically saying you have no idea what you're talking about and had to look it up in the dictionary?

It's so important to support local businesses. Their products and services are most times superior.

Re: “Tulsa 81, Tigers 71

Didn't see this loss coming. Thought if a Pastner coached team could sweep Tulsa, then it would've been a no brainer for a Tubby coached team to win. But.......
