wow thank you Charles, there is a documentary coming out soon about Libertyland and I want this info included.
The families that worked to Save Libertyland & the Fairgrounds also got a lot of criticism for doing so... Seems to prove the value of fighting for the Village Green in all its forms! My husband calls such critics "Negators of Memphis."
When we campaigned to Save Libertyland! Our first point was always the 2,000 summer jobs for inner-city youth that the city would lose by closing and bulldozing the park... Nobody at City Hall would listen, tho!
We had a blast in Memphis at Burke's! Thanks for showing the love! And Bill, you nailed it -- how could they pin the murder on the guy carrying the shotgun, when it was a single bullet that killed Helen Spence? This is the crux of the mystery...
When the spectrum is sewage, it's all the same end, LOL!!
Mulroy is seeking consolidation and has a strategy! He sketched out his strategy to a mutual friend some time ago during his re-election campaign.
When my husband asked me why I was so troubled by the news of an investigative reporter taking a city job managing its image/brand, I said the same thing Branston says above -- that the CVB, Chamber, and CCC should already be doing that job. (Wow I actually agree with Branston on something! There is hope!) Here we have a corrupt political machine co-opting yet another capable journalist. It is as though a midwife chose to become a pharmaceutical rep -- it's just odd... and sad.
