If only the CA could have more super annoyed American Apparel ads.

Re: “Before there was a Memphis Flyer there was a Dixie Flyer. Before there was a Fly on the Wall there was a Bluff Town Buffoon

I wrote a few pieces for the Dixie Flyer in the mid seventies including a two part cover story of interviews with Jim Dickinson. Bob Dylan picked up the Dixie Flyer at the Peabody Hotel, which introduced him to Dickinson. He then gave it to Jerry Wexler who granted me an interview. Jerry became a friend and confidant until his death. Jim later recorded with Dylan. A lot of impact for a tiny paper.

Re: “What's Your Favorite Thing About The Commercial Appeal's Digital Redesign?

It's been so long since I've been to that site, I didn't know the CA had a new format. However, someone told me not too long ago that Thomas was gone. If true, that was a good move, albeit a late one and a costly one.

About the only use I currently have for the CA is fuel for my charcoal chimney; and since I'm not into aviaries, I can see a use for house training a new puppy.

I think the tri-state metropolitan area is ripe for an online internet local news site that would offer objective local reporting and real local journalism. Some entrepreneur could actually start the enterprising endeavor in his or her garage and make a lot of dough in the long term (someone needs to get started on a business plan).

A la Sgt. Friday and Office Gannon, "Just the facts ma'am"...and hold the bias, political ideologies, manufactured hysteria and the all too oft used race baiting, please.

Re: “Wilkins Claim of AFSCME Endorsement Fails to Materialize

Cohen is running scared and is pulling out all stops. Throughout this campaign, I have heard of bullying and intimidation by Cohen, so this came as no surprise to me.

Cohen is afraid because Mr. Wilkins is running a good campaign, and is set beat him. I sure hope the citizens of the 9th district see Cohen for what he is - and vote him out!

Re: “Intermittent Fireworks Enliven Lengthy NAACP Forum

Mr. Baker,
Please check with the Criminal Court Clerk's office to verify the number of trials Mr. Lewis has sat as an attorney on, the number of trials Nigel Lewis has sat as a lone attorney on.

It seems as though many accept Judge Skahan's information as true without any verification.

Mr. Lewis a Public Defender working in the Criminal Courts of Shelby County, it goes without saying that he goes to trial quite often, but he implores you to ask Judges, District Attorneys and members of the defense bar about his reputation, work ethic, trial experience and adamant advocacy that he exhibits for his clients.

Also, experience in the same methodologies and perspectives is really not helping the people in the system, we need some innovative ideas and out of the box thoughts on how to deal with crime and prevention.

Re: “Wilkins Claim of AFSCME Endorsement Fails to Materialize

Dear God, this is humiliating to watch...

This is so awful for any strategist to try and explain away on a resume. "Aren't you the girl who called a press conference regarding a huge endorsement without the endorser or a formal letter of endorsement or phone call? I think we will pass, but do you know if John Marek is available?"

Re: “Wilkins Claim of AFSCME Endorsement Fails to Materialize

Cohen stated he had the union's endorsement. If the union hasn't made endorsements, Wilkins isn't the only one who is mistaken. Just saying.

Re: “A Visit to Riverfront Bar & Grill

I was told it was $4 to park if you dine, but there is nothing to indicate that as you pull up to park. $4 to park to purchase a sandwich or an appetizer is kind of silly, and the marvelous view is available all along the river. But hey, it's nice to get a drink from the bar and step out onto the deck to watch the sunset. Tourists will like it. Memphians? I dunno. Fine dining is really needed in this spot with valet parking.

Re: “Now Open: Riverfront Bar & Grill

The menu is spartan but more is planned in the way of entrees, I understand. Not a dinner destination yet, although the view and a nice drink are fully operational. The interior is large andl light-filled, even if very plain vanilla. The outdoor decks and seating are very nice with the best views of the river. What is totally lacking is parking. The small adjacent lot is $5 for 30 minutes and up, even though I am told diners will only be charged $4 to park. But where are you informed of that? Some signs would help. Otherwise, it's quite a jaunt to the parking lots in Tom Lee Park, and after dark, it's not the most comfortable of areas.

Re: “Where We Live Now

As long as we have and display such idiotic statements like that, you must not expect the city of Memphis to progress in any form.I have seen over the years public servants elected to office on what voters are fooled in believing are fair and impartial, simply because of the color of their skin. I was much apart of the movement for civil rights. As a lifelong Memphian who happens to be a Black American, it's time for all people to stop judging and electing officials because of the color of their skin but the dedication and determination to make things better for the people of this would be great city. Please post this statement in your memory bank and put it in your daily practices so we as a city can objectively become the city we want it to be. "WE ARE ONE"

Re: “What's Your Favorite Thing About The Commercial Appeal's Digital Redesign?

I'm glad the comments have been toned down abit. Now there's ads between the story and the comments so they don't seem to 'poison' the article as much since they're a little farther away from the story. There seems to be many fewer comments also. I say that's progress. Also, say what you will about the CA, but their sports coverage, especially of our local teams, is outstanding. That's why every morning I pull out the sports section first.
