Re: “Campaign 2016: Lessons Learned

I think in this election they grossly underestimated the anti Clinton vote. If you were truly able to separate the pro trump votes from the anti Hillary the anti Hillary would be in excess of 50 %. The corruption and deceit reflected in her own emails was the end of the game

Re: “From Sea to Shining Sea ...

Good essay. You definitely triggered a debate. It's amazing how the first reaction is to go on the attack. As if name calling and labeling the author as "liberal" adds anything to the debate.

I suggest mayor bloombergs approach....let's take away all the extra large slurpee cups from Syria as punishment....or a time out would be a possibility.

Re: “Letter from the Editor

I am in total agreement. To make it even more absurd the Arabs offered to pay for it. We put our kids in harms way and do the dirty work and they will write a check. In other trades that is called prostitution. What if they decide to punish us for our drone killings?

My daily event planner has pages for the remaining days of December. I suggest all Mayans purchase one to hedge their bets.

For trickle down to work the elite have to allow the wealth to be shared. Never happened and never will. Greed among the wealthy elite is choking out the middle class.

Re: “Memphis Tigers Hit Bottom

I am amazed at the people who label those that question the official version of events as a conspiracy nut. Conspiracy is a concerted effort by two or more people to carry out a criminal enterprise. The gov version that OBL and hijackers carried out 9/11 is a conspiracy. So regardless which version you accept you have a conspiracy. Tough questions need to be answered. Those who blindly accept everything at face value because the gov said it is so are fools.

    ... I suggest a bold and innovative proposal: On June 1, 2013, Mayor Wharton should announce to the world that Memphis will become America's first official "Nocturnal City." Each summer, Memphis is simply going to reverse the clock. We will begin doing at "p.m." what most people normally do at "a.m."

    The Association of Alternative Newsmedia held its annual convention in Detroit last week. We stayed at the beautifully restored Book Cadillac Westin Hotel in downtown.
