Positive News for Memphis, from Australian resident
The Flyer's "base" is, and always has been, thinking, progressive people accepting of racial, gender, and cultural diversity, environmentally aware, pro-women's rights.
Wow wherever I travel in the world I'll be sure to take a copy of the Flyer to demonstrate that I too fit the above cool person description, yep the infrastructure of my city may be fucked, a murder a day ? and my personal desperate attempt to cling to crass 50s stuff is so cool, come on you guys get a reality check and think about moving forward .
Slick Willy ! you can seriously believe a guy or gall that can tell such big fibs ? Realy ?
Who cares why or how much in tax breaks, it's about development and jobs and there two things Memphis needs.
What happened ? IKEA chose Memphis rather than Nashville , how come ? Perhaps others recognise that Downtown,midtown and East Memphis are the areas of the future, why even Germantown long known as the bastion of white flight may even start decorating with white, perhaps even a splash of colour,
How pleasant to think that a company of the caliber of ikea comes to town with the intention of providing this centuries decorating ideas to a town struggling from the past.
T.i.p.s is the abrieviated version of .. to insure proper service ? GET IT ?
T.i.p.s works to incorage staff to falsify thier income which means other tax payers pick up the tab.
T.i.p.s. works to encorage employers to pay sub standard wages.
T.i.p.s. works to have the customer pay the service provider regardless of the quality of service.
T.i.p.s is just another scam to keep people working for less .
You been living under a rock ? Or must have been spending too much time travelling the modern world ? a cosmopolitan Memphis? A busy metropolis downtown? A vibrant midtown ? Commuting convenience ? International cuisine ? America,s prettiest city ? Please send me a picture of yourself to hang on the refridgerator ! You are indeed A positive new age community member Congratulations on a great vision !
I am on the other side of the Globe and imagine that perhaps you were one of the very few who did not have the forsight to vote Obama, A close election they called it ? well from this side of the universe it looked like a thrashing to bigoted,war mongering,boys club politics. I guess you and your ilk continue to show lack of respect to a free publication that contains other than just political news.
God save America from confronting and move towards reconciliation, working towards a balanced economy not just the few rich but the millions of poor.
