Re: “Bob Dylan and Leon Russell

And I forgot to rate the stars: at least four.

Re: “Politics and the Movies 3: Olympia

All beautifully said. Btw, in what is a king-sized irony seldom (if ever) remarked upon, there are several clips of Owens and articles from the 1936 event in which the great athlete expresses himself as having a great time at the Olympics and completely downplays any effort to draw a political moral from his victories. The "Owens-versus-Hitler" motif was as absent from his mind as it was from Riefenstahl's. It may have served a useful purpose, but, basically, it was our side's propaganda.

Re: “How It Happened in the 8th District

Right you are, Yellow Dog. And, Rags, the mug shot was an official portrait used by DK himself, not something concocted by scheming "libs," insecure or otherwise.

Re: “Toeing the GOP Party Line

I know that as well as I know my name, Robert. It was a psychic typo in which the concept of Union University (about to be mentioned in the copy) insinuated itself too early into the name of the county. Thanks for your good eye. Fixed now, at least online. Alas, the hard copy on the streets is a done deal.

Re: “Capitol Hill Reporter Rick Locker Leaves Commercial Appeal

In any estimate of Capitol Hill reporters, past and present, Rick Locker has to rank at the very top. And he was the soul of hospitality every time -- and there have been many -- that I have been up there sleuthing around.

Re: “Trump Day in Millington

Also for Eli et al.: Among the attendees at the Trump event in Millington was Shelby County Commission chairman Terry Roland, who, as I understand it, largely organized it. Terry is definitely a Trump man, and I don't thiink he's bashful about acknowledging it. Should have had his name in the text.

Re: “Trump Day in Millington

Well, Brian Kelsey for one, Eli, but in all fairness, his attendance (like Erhardt's, for that matter and like numerous others) should not necessarily be interpreted as meaning support for Trump. In fact, Kelsey is Marco Rubio's main man locally. Face it, Trump's a phenomenon, and a lot of people just want to check out the show.

Re: “Warriors 100, Grizzlies 84: We (Still) In The Mud

For the last several years, Sports Illustrated, in its annual NBA preview, has always dissed the Grizz, those ever-recurrent playoff contenders, by placing the team low on its list of Most Enjoyable to Watch (not Most Likely to Win, mind you). This year, for maybe the first time, their pre-season squib -- "a suffocating style and shooting struggles" -- may be on point.
