Reid has been a singularly ineffective Speaker. He should be replaced immediately.
The racists haven't even gotten here yet and they're already showing their asses.
I am from around here. Memphis state changed its name to the University of Memphis in 1994, which was a full decade before they moved from the Pyramid to the FedEx Forum, the event mentioned in the article. And "y'all", being a contraction of "you all", is plural, not singular.
Dan Berry needs to figure out it's the "University of Memphis Tigers", not the "Memphis State Tigers. This guy writes for the Times?
The revamped shell is magnificent. It's everything we always knew that historic venue could be. And Amy Lavere was the perfect opening night act. The Levitt Foundation deserves a huge thank you from the community. As Amy said from the stage, "I'm so proud of Memphis right now!"
The cure to bad speech is more speech, not less. If Godwin doesn't like what anonymous people are saying about him and the department, he needs to respond to it in kind. The fact that he would put his name on his statements and that anonymous bloggers won't will only help his arguments. But those bloggers have an absolute right to free, anonymous speech just like Madison, Hamilton and Jay did when they wrote the Federalist papers using the pen name Publius. Frankly, I'm surprised to see a journalist argue otherwise.
