And Mr. Baker, your coverage in this article, is a fair representation of the facts - exactly what we expect of a good journalist. Thank you.
It's a shame that our Congressman chooses to use his muscle to block an endorsement. it was clear that they had given their endorsement to Mr. Wilkins.
When we really need his muscle, he does nothing. We really need him to stop the poverty decline in the 9th district. (We rank #1). We needed him to step in and help with the rape kit backlog long before he did. (After it had been in the news for 3 years). We need him to help out our veterans with more than just a ill fated and unproductive meeting with a government official.
He has gotten too comfortable and is out of touch with his constituents. Perhaps it's time for him to come home and know what its like to really live here.
I'm voting for new leadership. I'm voting for Ricky Wilkins.
I suspect that the editorial direction will change somewhat.
That can only be a good thing.
Ricky Wilkins has been a pitiful excuse for a candidate.A campaign bereft, of issues,ideas,substance.Elect me because I'm African-American ,even though Cohen has done a good job(" if you like Cohen you'll love Ricky") and even though I made millions on inside deals from my mentor,King Willie,and never had to do any real lawyer work ,and took monies from the poorest Memphians(linebarger) although I claim I come back to Memphis to "help" the poor..Pathetic!
If the Milwaukee newspaper's outspoken criticism of Joe McCarthy in the 50s makes it a voice of "regressive ideologues", then more power to it.
I live in the upper Midwest. You have no clue what constitutes liberalism in this part of the country.
^Agreed! Let's remove illegal aliens based on the year they came, and the amount of welfare they use! Since Europeans came here illegally first, and middle class families use more welfare than poor families, it only makes sense that we kick out all the middle class white people first.
News:AFSCME doesn't endorse Rickey!Worst week in politics goes to Rickey!!
Henri Brooks could have been impeached?
Just what the Memphis metro area needs: the same old biased and bovine scat newspaper ran by Milwaukee progressive...er...regressive ideologues.
They'll be broke faster than they can hesitantly say "Governor Scott Walker"...
When the park names are changed years from now to Acamapichtli, Huitzilihuitl, Chimalpopoca, Itzcoat, Moctezuma ilhuicamina, Axayacat, Tizoc, Ahuitzotl, Moctezuma Xocoyotzin, Cuitlahuac and Cuauhtemoc, the current chip-on-shoulder racists in political power will be to blame.
I loved the cold water there and I miss the place what a shame👎 no more 🏊@ maywood.
Maybe one day Memphis politics can be as racially inclusive as the Memphis Flyer's editorial staff.
... Oh wait. That's right; the Memphis Flyer is about as diverse as the Germantown Young Republicans Bridge Club...
The problem with Memphis politics isn't just the politicians, but the double standards and ingrained racism of a majority of Memphis' white voters and the sensationalized local media they rely so heavily on for information.
The Henri Brooks debacle is a perfect example of this double standard in action. When Henri Brooks made some racist statements, the Memphis media, and most white Memphians I know flipped their shit, calling for impeachment. But just a month before when Bill Boyd was reading an impassioned love letter to Nathan Bedford Forrest, the founder of the KKK; I couldn't find similar calls for impeachment or personal attacks on Mr. Boyd. Why is that?
I like the new format. The journalism there appears more blue, and less yellow.
I wonder if it will last?
Hate never gets you anything.
And pandering to hate will only work so long as folks hold onto it.
There already is a reboot in progress, but a lot of the older generation can't see it.
There is an organization trying to make a difference:
Catholics Relocating Amerindians Project
They hope to bring a whole new population to replace the one already here.
Hey Tee Toe.....
Two wrongs never make a right.
Just because the county doesn't provide garbage services to suit you, that makes it alright to dump your garbage wherever you see fit?
You are part of the problem and provide nothing positive towards a solution.
Why don't you donate some of your time to helping clean up Shelvy County?
Can't wait to follow you - at a safe distance, of course.
Great suggestion, Jeff, and so it shall be. Look for Smitty's Anal Bleaching to join the Twittersphere in early September.
You see Jeff, technology waits for no one, and Smitty's is super-excited to tell our customers about the new treatment that will combine our famous "Pink Prism" process with fish spa therapy. The hundreds of garra rufa fishies have already been ordered, and our friend and innovator Dr. Lance Cummings assures us that the process is awe-inspiring and will "set you free." The little "doctor fish" just need to swim in a nice Cabernet for a couple of minutes to get in the mood.
CHG must stand for "Copy Hateful Garbage" because here is where most of that all came from - http://store.americanvision.org/blogs/the-…
Does this mean they will make a decision that day or not necessarily?
