jes fittin' to ...
Midtown will be the "Old Midtown." Ever driven down Third, Lauderdale, N. 7th and seen the big mansions? That was the "Millionaire's Row" of yesteryear. In 50 years, Stonewall will be what Trigg and Latham is now. No amount of money, no tough decisions by the govt./police, no speeches by Obama, no winning pennants by the Griz, Tigers, and Redbirds, not even more bike lanes ...NOTHING can or will change the sewer that runs through the blackness of this city. No programs, no initiatives, no giveways will do anything except bolster the disadvantaged entitlement (to housing, money and mayhem.)
I believe the only solution is to level the playing field, as they've always screamed for: Starting tomorrow, all EBT cards are invalid. Starting Oct. 1, no more Section 8 (living in a $700/mo apt. for $25.) On Oct. 1, all public housing and section 8 properties will be boarded up and taken down. LBJ's "Great Society started overnight, and it can end overnight. Wanna riot? Fine. You will be imprisoned in the former public housing you once occupied. Your work to earn your 3 squares and a cot will be to tear down and convert other Section 8 housing into prisons to house your 'brothers.' No more freebies. You are all now equal. Get a job and pay your way. Good luck and good riddance.
I'm amazed that everyone here seems to accept the PC notion of hate crime as opposed, I guess, to friendly crime.
Would you call it an 'unsolved' mystery?
amen to that
I hear ya, I agree with you (and I envy you,) but, Why do you follow the news from here? I left Denver in 1986, but I don't keep up with the mile-high city. (This is not a snarky question.)

Thanks for the clarification. I was simply overwhelmed by the enormity of it all.
Sid Selvedge is the only Memphis musician who ever tipped me (while I played solo guitar at a Midtown restaurant.)
