Re: “Opening Date Set for Chipotle

This place is a national chain version of Swanky's Taco. Save your Chipotle $ and go to Swanky's instead, support local restaurants!

Re: “Figure Skating Made Fun

On April 9 in Hot Springs, there will be a sports event where the athletes pitted against each other are at the top of their game, reigning champ and 2-time runner-up, in a race against the clock and for a $5million purse. Will anyone at the Flyer be there?

Re: “U.S. Racquetball Open Ends with a Bang

I think it's awesome that the RB Championships are held in Memphis, seeing as how much Elvis loved the game:-)

Re: “Kelsey Files Amendment to Kill Income Tax "Once and for All"

Now, if only there was a way to repeal the ridiculously high and regressive 9.25% sales tax that sends cash-strapped shoppers away from Shelby County stores to find better deals at MS shopping centers...

Re: “FROM MY SEAT: For the Kiddies' Sake, Pitching National Baseball Day (Again)

This sounds like the lonely ramblings one hears at the racetrack: if only people cared about the horses again, the world would be a better place. If only we had a Triple Crown winner, people would care again. Baseball is dead- money and drugs have killed it. The legends are all that remain. Enjoy your legends and keep dreaming of that mythic second coming, because it'll break your heart to accept the sad reality. Take it from me, a lifelong fan of another dead sport.

Re: “City Gets State Grant to Beautify Graceland Area

Finally, it's about time somebody did something with that forsaken piece of off-ramp. So many tourists think they've made a wrong turn when they get off the interstate at Brooks headed for Graceland. The beautification project can't start soon enough, and there had better be people watching over it to make sure it stays "beautified".
