Memphis is to barbecue what Philly is to cheesesteaks -- even the 'average' there kills what other cities have. I am one of those folks who lives somewhere else who goes thru that Corky's drive-thru every time i'm in town.
speaking of Mongo, does he still have a place in Memphis? I go there periodically to visit my grandmother, and there are two places I've wanted to show my wife: 1) Prince Mongo's (no longer has the one near Harding) and 2) some house that the owner kept adding to -- it's like 4 stories & goes outward in places, surrounded by one-story homes -- but nobody can recall where that is.
anyone know where the #2 house is? I'm thinking it was in the Hickory Hill area, or at least south of I-240. It's probably late 80's that I last saw it.
Wow, that's the first I've heard of the Campfield bill. Good for him. I know that Campfield is a God-fearing, heterosexual man who's never had a homosexual thought in his life.
He should move here to Georgia, where he'd fit in well. We have way too many of those reprobates here in Atlanta. We need more good Republican Christians like Glenn Richardson (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Glenn_Richard…) to clean out the trash. Well, it appears that article doesn't do him justice. It leaves out the threats to his wife to bring down the full power of the Georgia State Patrol on her, the confirmation of the affair by his wife on a local news station, and so much other good fun.
Anyway, I'm sure Campfields's not one of those repressed guys who's plagued with thoughts of a throbbing, meaty c*ck pumping his lubed-up assh*le. Really, I am.
It has some of the same economic problems, and Fords have been big local players.
i agree, this is really bad for the city itself. I've been shocked at how much things have already moved out from where they were when I was in Memphis in the late 80s. The future might not look so bad if Memphis were a fast-growing area, but the reality is it's not and likely never will be. Best-case is probably growth that mirrors the growth in the nation as a whole, leaving a center that will end up looking pretty bad.
what blows me away is the utter bullshit that's capturing the imaginations of those on the extreme right, the catchphrases like "socialized medicine," a system whereby doctors work for the state. It's nothing of the sort.
I haven't showed up at any meetings, but the Republicans really should fear me -- I'm that 20% who vote both ways & determine who's president. I've voted for 6 Republicans and 2 Democrats so far, but at the point I cannot see myself ever voting Republican again. They simply oppose all reform, and healthcare is badly broken -- something must be done. I'll take some reform over none. They had the House, the Senate, & the presidency, and they did nothing.
