Re: “This Coarse Discourse

OK Mullins, I'm thinkin a cop snatches back a baby that Trump was just beginning to eat. Trump shoots the cop dead Wait wait, a Christian baby, whose sudden death will send its Romanian mother (a country music singer), whom Donald plans on making his 4th wife, into immediate estrus so one of Donald's sons can have a virgin sibling bride in 11 or 12 years.
But then the gun play does well in Trump's base, so let's make it... strangles the cop with a Colin Kaepernick jersey.
This might cut his polling back 5-6 percentage points, which might be enough for the Dems, unless Hillary coughs up an American flag.

I guess I'm not really surprised, but the details may offer more clarity as they emerge. Or not...

Re: “Help Envision a Post-Carbon Memphis

Yep, I don't think wind turbines (hardly practical in this area) or solar are ready to replace the electricity production of the coal-burning Allen Steam Plant quite yet.

Re: “Help Envision a Post-Carbon Memphis

Natural gas is available from many renewable sources. It also releases 50% less carbon per unit of energy produced compared to coal. Considering natural gas is a powerful greenhouse gas on it's own, recovered natural gas burning plants could feasibly have a negative effect on greenhouse gases, which is the main point of the goal of carbon reduction to begin with.

I'd rather encourage a baby to crawl than belittle it for not being able to sprint.

Memphis is in the process of bringing online a brand new natural gas plant. A "Carbon Free" city aint gonna happen in my life time.

Re: “Gannett Columnist/UT Professor to NC Motorists: Run Down Protesters

Chris,
It is worthwhile to walk back thru the circumstances leading up to one getting caught in the middle of a riot.
But in the moment described as being surrounded by a angry people with fire and bats (curiously where are all the guns Americans have) in which others hypothetically put themselves in accompanied by multiple generations of family members, one could reasonably consider driving thru. To first deny this human reaction, tends to hinder deeper discussion into the whys and wherefores this all began

@Chris

Seems pretty thoughtful to me. Of course, I would understand if you chose to stop in the middle of those rioting protesters. Perhaps you could whip out your progressive credentials and they would not attack you or your family. From what I saw on the TV, It does seem they would be inclined to listen to reason.

Me, I drive on.

If Professor Goober meant to be pithy, he should have added an emoji or something. He had only used 19 characters to that point. He could have clarified things with an eggplant, or a smiley poop. An American flag. Something. I don't know.

As you do when you drive into a crowd of people. Or when you post not very thoughtful things on the Internet.

I dunno. If I am trying to drive somewhere with my family and the road is blocked with people holding clubs in their hands, I would not try to run them over. I would not stop, either.

If you are out rioting in the middle of the road where you do not belong, you take your chances.

Or, as an alternative to abstinence only, you might consider just not inciting people to run over other people in their cars.

Re: “Tale of Two Plans

On one hand you have a guy who has put blood sweat and tears into a dream he is passionate about and believes in for almost 10 years. On the other hand you have the people that he has been pitching to who have obviously been inspired by his ideas. And when the power brokers came to town with their big bags of money and influence they just sweep him out of the way. Both plans center around the Cossitt, arts and culture, and the space that they projects would utilize.The two plans are so similar one would have to wonder if the Civic Commons group didn’t just take Johnathan’s work and redesign their document. They even included a picture of him in their plan, no doubt big middle finger to him.

When will Memphis learn to truly invest in our own creatives? Im am once again ashamed of you Memphis. I am ashamed of our leaders and people involved who don’t recognize that you should be celebrating and enabling a visionary like Johnathan. This truly saddens me. Shame on you. You know you are.

Anyone that has seen the live footage of the riotous crowds pulling, robbing, beating, killing innocent bystanders, people in their cars, trucks... I would seriously consider doing exactly the same thing if my life, my families lives were endangered!

The GOP never admits it is wrong. It would never remove Trump. If it were willing to admit it was wrong, he wouldn't be the nominee.

Re: “Tale of Two Plans

Mr. Kirkscey has been working passionately and tirelessly toward the redevelopment of the Cossitt and its surrounding area for almost the entire past decade - long before downtown's revitalization. Especially in light of this context, *his* plan is truly visionary. The fact that his idea appears to have been all but blatantly plagiarized by certain city players while, simultaneously, he seems to have been shut out of the conversations is deeply troubling. The back door deals, lack of public input and due process as well as the lack of transparency which continue to marr city administration, past and present, have got to end if Memphis truly wants to establish itself as a top-tier city. This especially applies to the (re)development, and conversely, to the preservation of public assets. Memphis and its powers-that-be need more forward-thinking people like Mr. Kirkscey and - importantly - to listen, encourage and support them in their endeavors.
