Keep your eye on the prize.
Life is happening "off the grid". Everyone else's life is what's happening "on the grid". At some point, even people under 30 will be needing to live their own lives for the preservation of sanity.
A great man & a champion in the BBQ field. He will be missed. Billious
Hands down, the best BBq in Memphis or anywhere . R.I.P.
this is very useful tool for electronics

As for hoping for no more FAKE fouls....flagrant or otherwise; that will most likely depend on Mr. Ginobli.
As the blogger for Car-Free Memphis, I wonder why it is that anyone is wondering if biking has gone beyond the white middle class. How ignorant can one get than to think such a thought. Poor black folks, for example, have always been ahead of this curve for several decades when it comes to walking, biking, and riding on public transit. In fact, their carbon foot print is far smaller than any other group of people. It's just that poor black people, about 40,000 strong here in Memphis, TN, do not have a place to walk, bike, or push a wheel chair to that is within ten minutes of their homes. Indeed, poor black people have food deserts and junk food stores and liquor stores on every corner; and for them to get anything nutritious to eat, it generally takes them as long as five hours to get back and forth to such stores via our despicable public transit service. The poor spend at least 30 hours or more on a Memphis Area Transit Authority bus each week and at best the poor can only make one pit stop per day; because, these buses only run every hour and these buses are generally late getting to the bus stops. For example, some people wait as long as 20 minutes out in open air rain or shine at bus stops. Therefore, the only question that should be asked at this point is as follows: When is there going to be any social justice whereby the poor communities are redesigned to be more like car-free cities so that the poor people can meet all of their essential needs without leaving their community just like the weathly class people are doing right now? Instead, what is going on is that the poor are getting booted out of their community; and then, the rich are redesigning these same communites to fit their rich lifestyle; once again proving how greedy they are when they want their way...and then acting as if they are the one's who are ahead of the curve and how much they are throwing the poor a bone by giving them vouchers to move further out to more desolate locations far and away from bus stops and still without having cars to get around. What gets to me is that the weathy class is doing all of this redesigning process to accommodate their gas guzzling vehicles, and then has the gal to fund it heavily with billions of corporate welfare tax dollars; while they do not ever want the poorest or the poor to even have a miniscule amount of welfare and food stamps. I have got news for those people who feel this way: there is plenty of money for everyone to live comfortably within a car-free zones and these zones can be off the grid via solar and wind power.
the Grizz can't SCORE, the Grizz can't DEFEND,
how exactly do you expect them to "protect" home.
the better team and the better coach will win, I'll let you figure it out.
here is wishing a great game 3 and 4.
PS. hopefully no more FAKE flagrant fouls.
I know you are a better man than me. You have to be to still be willing to offer the olive branch to Ritz and the CC8. If the Memphis side was willing to negotiate earlier I wish they could have put it in the press. Also it is too bad their meeting was 'closed door' which I think is against the Shelby County law for 'official business' and we didn't have anyone recording what went on. That being the case I still go by my post on 4/23/2013 at 12:39am dealing with Ritz. Adding to that how does one be civilized with a rattlesnake? I know that's an insult to rattlesnakes but it is what it is. Still I take my hat off to you for being the better person.
Do you know that when the Honorable County Commissioner Ritz and the rest of the CC8 die it is said that they have requested to be buried 12 feet deep. Do you know why?
Deep down every body is good.
You must realize that as a nom de plume, you have no actual mother. This may or may not come as quite a relief to you actual progenitor.
"The DA has to realize that you can't trample the rights of people, you can get away with it for awhile with poor, powerless people, but you can't pull that with people of means."
OTP, if only you'd apply that unusual bit of sage advise to the man in the White House.
Leave mothers out of this for you are treading on thin ice, very thin ice.
I can accept any criticism that you throw at me, but, I will not tolerate any mother talk!
Another conservative until something happens to you personally.
Why not arrest the people that were selling and buying drugs at the time they were doing it. It seems as though she had the club in her sights, not the criminals.
What is so bad about this is that with this publicity, when that clubs opens again, it will have overflow crowds and be able to charge more than it does now. It is just like putting Martha Stewart in prison for 9 months on a bullshit charge. While she was locked up, she made another 400 million dollars. Was she really punished?
If the club goes all the way in court and does not make a deal with the DA, a judge will have to rule whether the DA overstepped her bounds. No, I don't believe the DA wants this to go to a full blown hearing.
How sad that the adults had children do their dirty work....speaks volumes of the example their parents set. I'm always amazed at man's insensitivity to his fellow man.
Closing at the busiest time IS sending a message .... money talks, sh*t walks. It's the American way...unfortunately ;-/
The flagrant foul wasnt faked, but Tony's embellishment sure was. Ginobili didnt just give a hard swat - he grabbed Allen's forearm and pulled down to follow through. That's the textbook definition of a flagrant 1. As for Tony's response, I fully expect him to get a call/fine from the league for his antics after the foul.
As for the rest of your post, I know the Spurs aren't the Clippers, but we've been in this situation before - as little as 3 weeks ago. In the same way too. Blowout loss in game 1, close loss in game 2. Down 2-0, we won the series. How? Adjustments. We made them in the 3rd quarter last night and the rest of the game was a completely different story.
Your spurs protected home, which is what they were expected to do. So congrats. But, you'll find out how good we are at protecting our home court too. As the saying goes, the series doesn't start until someone loses at home.
I agree on Ritz. The suburbs have every reason and every right to tell Ritz to shove it after the way he handled the previous round of mediation.
From my understanding, some of the members of the Memphis side were willing to be reasonable with negotiations, but he was the ring leader in making sure that what they discussed didn't match what they put on paper.
I'd love nothing more than to tell Ritz to shove it myself. However, I think this is a time for us to prove to be the bigger people in this county. We should listen and consider offering him and his side an olive branch, though I think having him wear a diaper and suck a pacifier at the next SCC meeting should be a part of any negotiated settlement.
Hollins and the Grizz haven't figured out anything.
The Spurs 4Q struggles yesterday were mostly due to the Spurs inability to make WIDE OPEN shots. Blame it on fatigue, but it definitely ain't because Hollins adjustments.
Memphis in this series has problems at both ends of the floor.
For a team being named as the best defensive team in the league they sure can't stop the Spurs. Late in the 3Q yesterday they were down by 18.
Offensively, well, let's not even talk about it.
So how can Memphis win this series if they can't defend nor score?
FAKING flagrant fouls? well, it didn't work yesterday either.
The suburbs should tell Ritz to go pound sand. Or go pound wheat and make crackers. He has lost and he knows it. As I have said before precedent precedent precedent. There is nothing on the books that proves the CC8 position. Just because a city or county or state has been proven to have been in the wrong in the distant past by no means does it mean they are in the wrong today. If I am not mistaken the court, as always, looks at today's FACTS and does not dwell on past discrimination especially if past discrimination has been removed. Believe it or not they really don't care about anyone's opinion either, whether they are a citizen of the city or county. Mine included. I think it is funny that the CC8 would say we are discriminating even though we will be going out of our way to educate majorityminority or minoritymajority, (what ever you would call the kids). What I don't see as funny is all of the money the CC8 is drumming up for the law firms at the cost of the citizens they represent. Especially when they should know it is a lost cause. The suburbs should go to the meeting and be polite and listen to what Ritz has to say and then politely leave saying they have a more pressing problem at the moment. Like they left the water running or they have to get home and let the dog out or The Voice is on and they want to see the winner. LOL
It sounds as though your school system on graduation speakers is good. Having the English teachers pick the third person is the best way. You would not have the math teachers or Phy. Ed. teachers or Shop teachers, (do they still have shop in schools?) or the janitorial staff choose a speaker. Having the English teachers choose means they will most likely choose someone that speaks using correct grammar and intelligence. Just think if only the Phy Ed coaches chose you might get the right tackle that can't even add 4+12. I do not mean to dis' Homer but they should not let the Physics teachers choose either even thought that person would probably most likely be very very intelligent. The school has a good system so LET THE GRADUATIONS BEGIN.
