Re: “Q&A with Noura Jackson’s Attorneys

Read "Stranger To The Truth" by Lisa Hickman. She did it. Just like O.J.

Re: “The Race Is On, and Some Council Candidates Are Getting a Lucrative Head Start

We need more women in local government. Funny how you never see these guys supporting women. Just the good ole boy network ... They support these young guys who don't have the life experience yet to be valuable in elective government. Elect women!!This year is the 95th anniversary of the 19th Amendment's ratification. Our local elective bodies are completely integrated, but lacking in female representation. We have an outstanding woman running in District 5 - Mary Wilder. We need her on the City Council.

Re: “Approval for Monument to Tennessee's Suffragists Expected on Thursday

This is a privately funded effort. We are giving a gift to the state. Alan LeQuire has done two woman suffrage sculptures and has vast knowledge of the subject. That's why he was selected.

Re: “A New Day in Washington

Why anyone gives this little twit space to spout his idiotic viewpoint is beyond my comprehension. He is a fool. And he was an undistinguished congressman. Jeff, I love you, too. You are always on point!

Re: “The Mall Parking Matter: Like Toney Armstrong Needed Another Problem?

This is long overdue. During the 27 years I've lived Downtown on the mall, I have been irritated at how the police use the mall as their personal freeway. They park on it to go to the credit union in the basement of The Claridge House, to Easy Way, to Walgreen's, and to cut their driving time. It's about time the "Vehicles Prohibited On Mall" signs were followed. Too many government vehicles use the mall for their convenience. I like having a pedestrian mall. Cars can park on either end of a city block with their flashers on to take care of business. There should be no reason for government vehicles to constantly be driving on the mall. That goes for tourists, too. I have been saying for more than 15 years that the mall is being torn up. This is the second mall, BTW. The taxpayers will have to pay for another one eventually. And the City Center Commission needs to stop giving permits for people to park on the mall. That is unnecessary as well.

Re: “Heidi Shafer Considering Race for Open Commission Seat of Her Boss, George Flinn

This community is very fortunate that Heidi Shafer is willing to run for the county commission. She is honest, decent, and caring about the community. I was there with her during the fight over how the NBA arena was going to be funded. What Willie did was prevent a referendum from being held because all the "powers that be" knew that the public was opposed. We had the signatures on those petitions. I have never seen anything like what happened. The far right and far left were united in our opposition to corporate welfare. Elected officials dismissed our efforts. The groundswell of support was overlooked by the usual political reporters. Remember, this was before bloggers. Her efforts helped protect taxpayers. I still think the arena was unnecessary and that The Pyramid should have been retrofitted. I got sick and tired of hearing about how "this will put Memphis on the map" which was a bunch of crap. I will be working hard to get her elected because she is a voice of sanity and reason.
