Bill Day is a great editorial cartoonist and a fine gentleman to boot! So glad to see he's gotten some recognition.
As for the CA, it is what it is. And it is much, much less than it was.
Best political analysis I've read in a long time. Thanks, JB.
I can still remember the theme song - which I think was played on a recorder or panpipe - and the train on the set. Thanks for that memory, Vance.
OK, I'm just a white chick, but I see an obvious and tragic racial aspect when a bunch of White Southerners are rallying to "take this country back" after the MAJORITY OF AMERICANS elected an African-American as president. They want to take us back, alright.
News flash: We're not going back. We're going forward. We are the majority. We want health care. We love our country and we want our president to succeed.
This stunning interview really illustrates the man's frightening egomania. For Herenton, it really is ALL ABOUT HIM - not about the city, the future, good policy, our children, the issues, principles, the law, or making wise choices.
Thank you, Mr. Baker, for putting it out there so plainly.
Susie Thorp has unwittingly provided the bumper-sticker of the season:
"Stamp Out Willie Fatigue: Vote Cohen"
I certainly hope that the videotape of Bunker advocating discrimination is made into a political ad opposing his re-election. Memphis, of all places, knows how poisonous discrimination is to a community of diverse people.
This is not about homosexuality, it is about job discrimination. Job discrimination is wrong, period. It is also bad policy, bad business, and bad for our image as a city.
