Re: “Prairie Farms Expansion Stirs Neighborhood Controversy

Let the dairy stay. It's part of the fabric of Midtown. Keep Midtown funky! Besides, we need good manufacturing jobs in Memphis.

Re: “Greensward: Mediation Costs Rise, 'Fringe Element' Reviewed

Lost in Conrad's "fringe element" comment is the fact that he said it to a fellow black councilman. “If you're going to make decisions to please the fringe element so they don't get mad and do bad things, this job is probably not for you.” Who is Kemp Conrad to tell a black councilman how to do his job in representing his constituents? Conrad really failed to hide behind white privilege and veiled racism this time - a real slip that demonstrated who he is for all to see.

Re: “The Shelby County Democratic Party Is in Crisis Mode Again

At this point electing Dell Gill as Chair of the SCDP will ensure the end of the organization. Go ahead. The county party needs collapse so that it can be rebuilt with new bylaws and policies which promote working together. Right now, the whole county party is miserably broken.

Re: “Council Members Seek to Give Majority of Greensward to Zoo

I have a really bad feeling should this resolution pass. While I would never engage in or condone such actions, I think we might see acts of eco-terrorism on the Greensward if the Memphis Zoo was given control by the city (e.g., spikes driven into the ground to damage parking vehicles, vandalism of parked cars, etc.). Cutting off public input and community planning might enrage activists to pursue more desperate measures.

Re: “George Flinn Seeking Chairmanship of State GOP

Dr. Flinn has not demonstrated inclusiveness in his voting record. I find it humorous that he says that's part of his platform for the state GOP.

Re: “Here's the Judicial Poll That Counts! from the Memphis Bar Association

I'm grateful to the Memphis Bar Association for conducting this survey. Without it, we'd all be voting without any information about these candidates or not voting at all in many of the judicial races.

Re: ““Lest Ye Be Judged”

I am greatly alarmed to learn that the Shelby County Democratic Party endorsed Felicia Corbin Johnson, an attorney with questionable morals and ethics and a raging homophobe, for Shelby County Circuit Court Division 1. SCDP's endorsement of Johnson calls the party's commitment to equality for LGBT people into question.
