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: “Schadenfreude at the Polls

Actually, the EC caused me to commit voter fraud by having me vote in a district in which I did not reside.

Re: “Schadenfreude at the Polls

Whining? I can whine with the best of them, but this column covers a lot more ground than my "inconvenience." I was sent to a district in which I don't reside to vote. How many others were? How many races were impacted by people being sent to vote in districts where they don't reside? How many elections where this happens will it take to get a real house-cleaning/investigation of the Election Commission practices and procedures? How many people, when told they'd have to go to another district, were unable to get there, because they walked to the poll in their own neighborhood? You are being either intentionally obtuse or you genuinely are a dumbass. I think you're a smart person who's trolling.

Pop, seriously, give it up. You're embarrassing yourself.

Re: “Schadenfreude at the Polls

I'm enjoying the ongoing "pop-'splaining," but the fact is, by forcing people to vote in districts other than their own, you are also altering WHO they are voting for in many cases. If they are being forced to vote for candidates who don't represent their home district, they've been disenfranchised.

Re: ““Hunger Games” at The Commercial Appeal

Woodson J. Savage, the Flyer's circulation has remained steady for years, with a 92%-95% pickup rate each week, a stat that ranks among the highest in alt-weekly papers in the country.
