Re: “Draft Night Recap: Grizzlies Draft Jarell Martin, Andrew Harrison, trade Jon Leuer

I wasn't excited about this draft. I was crossing my fingers that Anderson fell to us, but otherwise I didn't really care. Then, at 20, Anderson, Bobby Portis, Rondae Hollis Jefferson, and Tyus Jones were all still on the board. Whoa, Nellie. Time to get excited! Surely ONE of these strapping 4 young gentlemen who may well get playing time with the Grizzlies will still be available at 25!

Anderson gone
Portis gone
RHJ gone
.......
Jones gone

Well crap, at least we know they aren't as high on Jarell Martin as has been rumored, and Looney, Harrell, RJ Hunter are all still out there...

FML.

Jeff,
I had my money on the Phineas Gage syndrome, but then I thought, where would Jeff get a railroad spike.

Re: “Wharton Wants Forrest Statue Removed From Park

I want to see statues of anyone perceived to be a racist come down. However, I'm starting a drive to replace those statues with Borscht Belt comedians. The whole family will delight in a trip to the park on a pretty day to see the towering bronze likenesses of Shecky Greene and Sid Caesar.

Hey Flyer staff: for future reference in case you print another letter of mine, please note there is no 's' in my last name. Thanks! :-)

Re: “Wharton Wants Forrest Statue Removed From Park

There are so many bigger issues than this one that our city administration needs to address. This is nothing but a political soundbite from Wharton in an effort to distract us (the voters) from what is really important in this city.

Re: “White is the New Black

Brunetto, obviously you never went to any gun shows or subscribed to Soldier of Fortune back in the day.

It is true that the recruiting is much more efficient these days. But it is also true that the sheer volume of it tends to drown out all but the loudest voices. So you end up with pretty much the same as before. Otherwise, every dude with a blog would be the New York Times.

Re: “Committed to Lies

Ha ha, that's so awesome. I totally trolled you guys.

The only thing agreed-upon 40 years ago is that blatant, unapologetic, Wallacist racism is bad for the image and damages electoral outcomes. That it was time for the bed sheets to go back on the bed (but leave the eyeholes in the pillow cases, baby, just in case). That it was time to adopt dog whistles, winks and nods, cries of reverse racism (Al Sharpton! Louis Farrakhan!), and symbols of "southern culture and heritage" as a way of recognizing and communicating with like-minded folk.

Re: “Upcoming Domestic Violence and Sexual Assault Awareness Events Focus on Men

Men, you should avoid this.

First: domestic violence is NOT your burden alone as both women and men perpetrate it.

Second: why are women not walking in men's shoes? We are the ones who die younger, our health is dis-served by a health care system focused on women, we get 63% more jail time for the same crime, feminists LIE about the wage gap (we work more overtime in jobs no one wants), we suffer media images of men being killed like hamburger and the government is removing due process rights for men in false rape cases.

DO NOT HUMILIATE YOURSELVES in those red shoes. the pictures will be all over the internet. Ask women to walk a mile in YOUR shoes.

Re: “Wharton Wants Forrest Statue Removed From Park

ern, with people like the ones in the frankfurt school that have no historical investment in america, nor in any country, that bad ol' anoymous poster won't make too much headway, now will he. don't you worry, you'll be a lot happier when we can get the people that call themselves americans out, and can get everybody else in. it's all about you.

JA APop,
Bussing children away from their nearest school is for the lesser races. I'm sure your folks opposed this too, but they were wrong.

Re: “Wharton Wants Forrest Statue Removed From Park

I too hate it when liberals eliminate whole constellations from the galaxy!
They told me back in '45 that the Süden would not rise again, but with brave outspoken patriots like anonymous, there's no telling what can happen.
I'd like to add that only sissies can't appreciate a good horse statue.

Re: “Wharton Wants Forrest Statue Removed From Park

does not realize that the same people who want the southern cross removed want ol glory removed too, along with bibles, churches, pastors, 'washington' dc, the jefferson memorial, anything that does not square with an internationalist marxist interpretation of america.

The Wizard of the Saddle and his wife deserve a better resting place than the crap hole Memphis has become.

Re: “Put That Flag Away

Mickey,
The answer is no, if you're talking about intelligent atheists. I'm reading (actually, listening to) a book by a brilliant atheist who cites the Declaration's statement of human rights as a fiction created to enable a just society. He makes a point of separating his view of the Declaration as fiction from its usefulness to humanity. The book is "Sapiens" by Yuval Noah Harari. It's the most thought-provoking thing I've read in years.

Do you think banning the stars and stripes would make Native Americans feel any better?

Re: “Committed to Lies

APop
Busing was a stupid tactic. But uprooting the family and moving them into the bean fields just to prove a point... couldn't they just write irate letters to the editor. You see how well that works here.
But I am being insensitive as I was blessed that all my schools and church were within a one block radius in a walkable midtown, where we were blessed with a multiplicity of classes and races. Y'all missed out on something.
