Defending Memphis is nothing new. It's been going on for at least a decade. Eventually it becomes a toxic relationship like the way you love an alcoholic uncle. "He's got a big heart. He means well. It will get better." It's great and necessary to be positive about where you are, and there are wonderful people in Memphis. When actual pride replaces the need for an overabundance of nonprofits for a positive image, and an abundance of opportunities surface to keep young creatives, I will be really happy for Memphis. But until then, a sunrise stroll on the river bluff (as pretty as it is) is not enough to negate the overall anti-progressive mindset or the inferiority complex behind the newer pro-Memphis campaigns. But to each his own. Carry mace.
It's a great place to move away from.
TV: So your point is...I told you so? "If you'd been reading me back in 2006 (still in print in the DNA newsletter)..." Who cares what you said in a newsletter? That's your basis for credibility? Wow. Very impressive. I bet the Bass Pro brass don't even remember who you are. I mean, obviously, you weren't at the meeting. But by all means, sleep with this article under your pillow if it calms you down. Because you seriously need to calm down. All these death threats and name calling are not the behaviors of a "good, decent businessman." Tommy, if it's not too late, please do not read Catcher in the Rye. Please.
Okay, it is a little funny to act like the Flyer isn't biased. I'm fairly liberal, so it doesn't bother me. But seriously, when it comes to politics, the words could slide off the page.

38103, does something about this editorial seem familiar to you?
Speaking of recycling, why doesn't The Flyer pick up leftover old issues from businesses to be recycled?
