Was Berlin Boyd a contestant for Miss South Carolina a few years ago? If not, he does a great imitation.
I have to add this. Any issue, even one involving "just grass" still serves to give important insight into what makes our city's leaders tick. The public response to this issue was significantly amped up after a few "leaders" on the City Council decided to circumvent negotiations and rule by fiat. I think that vote showed that they have little regard for their constituents and are in the back pockets of Memphis' own "One Percent." Therefore, as I see it, the protest is not just about grass, but about the arrogance and political deafness of our City Council. Count me in. Jim Schaeffer
The hell with everything else. Give me those Yeast Rolls!
What a weak effort at reporting this story. Weirich suppressed exculpatory evidence. This was discovered later, after the conviction, by another prosecutor, who did disclose its existence, but not its contents. He was immediately taken off the case. Now, here we are with another foul smell coming out of the Shelby County A.G.'s office, which the Federal Sixth Circuit Court has already said has a bad reputation when it comes to dishonesty. Hell, yes, she should resign. She should never have been put in the office in the first place.
Not having another buyer for equal or more money was always the problem, Mr. Mulroy. Glad that you finally figured that out. What a genius!
I think AFSCME's clearly duplicitous behavior in this endorsement shell game renders a third endorsement laughable. Also, if Janice Chalmers is telling the truth about the union having endorsed Wilkins, her abandoning him at a press conference like she did is disgraceful. He stood in front of the cameras while she cowered in her office. "With 'friends' like these..."
I think that Memphis should retire the number 68 as well. Just doing 34 once is not enough.
