semi-retired architectural designer contemplating the realization that the cue cards in life were a lie.....
Just when you think you have it all figured out....some prick with a pin comes along to burst your bubble.........life is just that way.
An untethered bouy in the shipping lanes of life....
Simple solution........knowing the money grabbing mindset of Bob Loeb and the tacky vision of Tauer and Berger, I'll choose to spend my money for make believe food at the closet McDonald's before I'll support this place...........it won't help the Nursery, but it would sure be fitting for Bob to be stuck with another dead piece of property and a building that can only be described as looking like some Transformer took a massive dump.
Here's my advice for all men when it comes to Black Friday..............Avoid it like you would a severe case of crabs from your teenage Little Lolita baby sitter.
Both, while enticing, will result in costing you more than you ever imagined and quite possibly physical harm. There are distinct similarities between an enraged jilted wife with the best Divorce Lawyer in town and a rabid shopper with a cart load of deals with her eyes on that epic sized flat screen TV that you innocently positioned yourself in front of.............both, will go straight for the boys, leaving you discarded on the floor withering in pain that you would only expect from the jaws of a bear trap without a second's hesitation.
Best to leave this day to those who have evolved throughout the ages just for this type of hunting expedition. Men, on Black Friday it is survival of the fittest and believe me, compared to the woman on a mission........she is the Alpha She Wolf of the pack. She is Laura Craft, Cat Woman and the fighting little midget of the wrestling ring all rolled into one. Basically, she is the Predator Alien and you're a snack.
Be smart. Leave the Little Lolita alone.......give the female of the clan the credit cards, stay at home, watch Basketball (Tigers play at 4:30 on Friday) and just pay the bills next month when they come in..............it's far less painful.
Thank you Mr. V.........just more reasons I can show my wife why we should get our butts out of Memphis and on to Colorado..........I kinda like that idea that individuals can grow up to 6 plants for personal use legally.
And, when our illustrious CC voted this idea into being, just where did they think the businesses would put their daily trash? Just another great example of acting without thinking things through...........further proof, to be a politician apparently you have to have a lobotomy before taking office.
Dang, I hate it when those "trash fairies" don't show up..........
And you, Ms. Jones, need to take off your rose colored glasses you view the world through. It's apparent you can't see the "obvious" unless it rears its ugly head and bites you in the butt. I'm not the one who has sat on rape kits that haven't been processed..... some for more than a decade....... and you claim, I have no concern.
This Ms. Jones, is not an act of "concern" on the part of AC and this administration, this is a public image manipulation in preparation for the coming election... that's their concern.
"“Appropriate processes and procedures in the handling of this evidence help preserve the rights of victims, support the prosecution of criminals, and promote justice for all,” Wharton said in a Monday statement. “We have to get this right.”
Memphis police will work with the District Attorney General’s office and the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation to eliminate the current backlog. Wharton’s order further directs MPD to process all new rape kits immediately.
“The purpose of this order is to ensure that this does not happen again, that these cases are being actively investigated, and that we identify and employ best practices for dealing with sexual assaults in the future,” Wharton said." .......... REALLY! It takes an "order" from the Mayor's office to get MPD to do their damn job....?
Ms. Jones, I maybe on a "high horse" but from up here.....I can see you're trapped in the land of Naive and Gullible........that, or you work for AC or the PR firm trying to improve his public image for the elections.
Ghee.......suddenly AC has an epiphany about "evidence".......who would have thunk it. Must be an election coming up.
What's even more amazing is that the OPD actually recommended the proposed plan with conditions.............basically, their conditions were nothing more than to completely disregard the UD Overlay (which they helped to develop) and then tried to justify it by glossing over the conditions as being minor in nature. Of course the useless Land Use Control Board rubber stamped it which means nothing as they have no really authority to approve or deny.....
The plan proposed by the McD's group is strictly for their business model and to hell with the adjacent neighborhoods or the University District all together
Adhere to the Overlay McDonald's...........or are you too good for that "minor" set of design standards. Hell, even Family Dollar designed according to the Overlay.... what makes you so special?
