Re: “Memphis Planned Parenthood Plans to Build New Health Center

But on the bright side apok, just think about how many children on food stamps and welfare these clinics are preventing.

Re: “Strickland Proposal Ends Greensward Parking

Move the zoo to Shelby Farms. Plenty of room. The zoo is no longer the crown jewel of Overton Park, it's the big problem. Plow up the parking lot and expand the greensward.

Listen apok, if we're going to be forced to bicycle everywhere, we'll have to put abortion clinics closer to where all the sex is happening.

Re: “Memphis Planned Parenthood Plans to Build New Health Center

These planned parenthood extermination centers are extremely unappealing to have in the neighborhood.

Re: “Triple A Title Tilt Tuesday at AutoZone Park

The weather is cooperating. Looks like it's going to be a good night. There's been a huge presale for this game and great promotions on top of that (many involving food [$1 hot dogs] and beer). Frank, while you continue to gush about Nashville, the attendance in the 2nd year of their new ballpark fell off 900 a game and is not even close to what AutoZone Park did when it was new.
As for us it's apparent the baseball and corporate community will be saying 'Thank You' tomorrow night.

Re: “Tigers 43, Kansas 7

I think the NCAA would break them if they tried. All the schools would have to act together, which they will never do, and any who try to break away would be cut off, surrounded, and dismantled.

But I think the SEC could well get so full of itself that it might try. At which point the NCAA would implement the dreaded playoff system. Which they should do anyway.

All that being said, I wish nothing but ill on the NCAA and the entire apparatus of exploitation. College athletics have a place and purpose. College football is unpaid minor league pro football. Some day some injured player is going to sue the NCAA and the NFL and win, and it will all come crashing down, and what emerges from the ruins will be better by far than what currently exists.

Speaking of, when can we start talking about the Tigers' national championship?

Re: “Tigers 43, Kansas 7

Or the NCAA will find itself irrelevant as the big football schools complete their takeover of all college athletics, which would include changing March Madness in order to make sure small schools can't compete in it any more. All while smearing a shit stain veneer of academics and amateur sports over the money grab.

Re: “Tigers 43, Kansas 7

Pack - then, NCAA will finally go to a playoff system, which will eliminate the bowl games and break apart the monopoly of the power conferences.

And finally, at long last, college sports will become minor league pro sports with paid athletes.

Re: “Tigers 43, Kansas 7

That's why most of the Big 12, other than Texas (for political reasons) doesn't want Houston, Oak.
Once the ESPN contract is up, that league is going to implode. UT to the Pac 12 and Oklahoma to the SEC. There will be a Power 4, and a Mini Me conference consisting of whatever castoffs, like Texas Tech, K State, etc., can't get into the Big 10 or Pac 12 and then conferences made up of the rest of the wallflowers of "big time" college athletics.

I think that when you plant strawberries, it's really fun, and they grow quick. Just ask Peteri Niyomwungere, age 11. It's like you have a real job (feeding yourself and your family) and they pay you!

Re: “Carl Awsumb planted a garden and grew a community.

Carl thank you for showing your love care and concern for social change I agree it certainly starts with our youth I stand corrected no sir it starts with a human who understands that social change is possible and guns are not necessary when one understands human kindness and the unconditional care another human can share... I agree with your other friends you really are AWSUMB :)

I agree with HPT2001 and bonebroke, fashion has been on a downward spiral since Dallas 1963. It's time we brought the pillbox hat our of mourning!

Re: “Black Lives Matter To Protest Civil Rights Museum Exhibit

Raz, do you think all these issues are separate? Do you think, rightly or wrongly, that BLM cares about black people.

Re: “Black Lives Matter To Protest Civil Rights Museum Exhibit

Nick,

Your purposeful misreading of what I wrote; that's what's absurd. BLM protesting this art while the real problem is homicide within the black community committed by other black people; that's what's absurd. BLM's claim to care about black people; that's absurd.

Raz, are black people absurd or are the killings of black people absurd?

Re: “Black Lives Matter To Protest Civil Rights Museum Exhibit

How about this Nick: I'm also not entirely convinced that the BLM thingy and its associated groups aren't all just some type of Absurdist performance art troupe.

Would that make you more comfortable?
