Re: “Grizzly Wild Wings: The Grizzlies have a crowd of 2's and 3's

One more thing: Is it a bit unfair to single out Tony Allen for having an attitude problem this past season? After all, the single biggest public display of an attitude problem came from Quincy Pondexter, not Tony.

Re: “Grizzly Wild Wings: The Grizzlies have a crowd of 2's and 3's

Interesting indeed. For the first time since they've been in Memphis, the Grizzlies are deep on the wings, deep at point guard and deep enough at center. If Jarnell Stokes turns out to be decent, they might even be deep enough at power forward. (Not necessarily talented enough to win it all, of course. But deep enough to more than match most other teams from top to bottom.) Kudos to the front office.

Re: “Ordering up the Unexpected

I'm also not a huge fan of the fish tacos at Elwood's Shack. Tasted decidedly fishy to me. Disappointing, given all the hype the dish has received in The CA and now here.

Re: “UPDATE: Protestors Call For New Zoo Leadership As Parking Problems Persist

Although I support Get Off Our Lawn's opposition to parking on the greensward, I think it was unwise for them to call for "new zoo leadership." That kinda makes it sound like they're out to get Chuck Brady. Which kinda makes it sound personal, which is a very, very poor move from a PR perspective. Stick with the main righteous issue at hand (the greensward!), not personal attacks. In due course, the zoo leadership issue will probably take care of itself.

Re: “How To React to a Story of Rape

Thoughtful. Well-stated.

Re: “Memphis Zoo Strikes Back on Parking Proposals

Methinks it's high time to show the Zoo that opposition to parking on the greensward comes from more than just a "small group of protestors." Like many others, I've been silent on this issue up until now, but no more. When does the Get Off Our Lawn group plan to hold its next meeting? I'll do my darndest to be there to lend my support. Maybe it's time to for us to rally, picket, protest or do whatever it takes to get the message across to Zoo officials.

Re: ““Reporter” at Joe Brown’s Post-Jail Press Conference Was a Plant

Methinks OTP is on to something in his comments about the dearth of black journalists (especially in leadership positions) in most of our mainstream local newsrooms. Minorities have always been underrepresented in that regard, and there have only been modest gains (at best) in the percentage of minorities in Memphis newsrooms over the past few decades. Still, that doesn't excuse Christy Kirk's deplorably misleading actions. Those actions would be considered blatantly unethical by a real journalist, regardless of whether the journalist is black, white, purple or green.
