Re: “The Trolley Stop Market

Had a great Saturday morning breakfast here. Fresh home-made bread/toast, real hash browns, fresh veggies in my omelet. We'll be back.

Re: “Gorilla Snot Spotted on Cleveland

The "filling out forms" business must be very lucrative. I kill off about 10 of these comments a day. But spambot is right, it IS a "Just awesome topic!"

Re: “What Type of Restaurant Does Memphis Need?

Echoing what one Nashvillain said in the comments, I'd love a real, non-snooty French brasserie, with sidewalk tables and house wine in water glasses and good, chewy bread, and sassy servers.

Re: “America’s Killing Fields

Interesting how you have such faith that stronger immigration laws will work and stronger gun laws won't.

You can fire 30 rounds with a semi-automatic AR-15 in about 9 seconds. And, as I'm sure you know, it can easily be modified to shoot automatically. It is a military-grade weapon. And if the attacks in San Bernandino, Aurora, Sandy Hook, and Orlando weren't "assaults," I don't know what would be.

Well, Ducky, at least I use the same name every week.

Re: “Who to Hate?

I didn't "stop the blame at religious extremists." You should read slower.

Re: “Black and White and Read All Over

So, true, Mickey. You should be the one determining these things.
