What is it about Mayor Herenton that intimidates people so much? Oh- I know. Personally, I am hoping Dr. Herenton will get his schools assimilated- and he will have NO problem acquiring excellent Instructors to make a difference in these children's lives. I will be one of the first in line. Keep striving, Dr. Herenton. You will prevail, because we want our children to prevail.
Well- For ANYone considering inhabiting the building-as well as the nearby residents- it should be MANDATORY that FULL Remediation be done for what is sure to be IMMENSE TOXIC MOLD DAMAGE.
After the way the city showed utter disrespect by increasing costs of just about EVERYthing COGIC patronized when they convened in Memphis- I find it almost appalling and quite a show of nerve that the Mayor & Kane would show up in St. Louis to "win" their business back. If I were in a leadership position with COGIC- I'd give them a respectful flip of the "NO!". Miss that $$$ now, don't you Memphis?
Why is it that laws passed requiring responsibilty from big corporations don't go into effect for years down the road- while laws that punish the poor and minorities go into effect immediately? This is CLEARLY an attempt-like in other states with GOP-controlled legislatures- to prevent JUST ENOUGH voters who are likely to vote for DEMOCRATS to produce a win for the GOP-because they know people are sitting on edge to get Republicans out of offices nationwide. It should be repealed IMMEDIATELY- or it should not be allowed to take effect until 2016. They can't win on their own-so they manipulate the vote.
Well...This is interesting. Cohen says his "grapevine" has him on the upside- be very careful taking the Black vote for granted... many have seen their grapes wither on the vine by doing so. Having supported Cohen in the past, I am UNimpressed by his lackluster representation. I hope Ms. Hart throws her hat in...I think she'd pull it off. And if she doesn't get the job done, we will elect someone else who will!
Hey now!!! I feel ya'. Memphis is on a very positive energy flow. We shall keep it flowing....thanks.
Bruce- Thanks, Man. I don't know you personally, but we are in quite the same atmosphere. As long as there are more people like us-you, me, and many, many others- who see this matter for the full range of its' seriousness- we can make this change happen. Let's hold fast to our yearning for what IS just- for what IS fair, right & true-and DILIGENTly work towards that goal-we WILL make it happen...Countless numbers of others before us have done likewise. GOD Bless you.
