Re: “Bar Louie

Great place to sit and have drinks. I love the calamari appetizer too. Always had people come to check on me right when I sat down, so I have no idea what Bill was talking about... of course, I'm not a jerk to staff, and I do tip.

Re: “Checking Your Privilege

When I qualified for government cheese and peanut butter in a can lo these many years ago, I worked an average of 84 hours a week doing two full time jobs AND was taking full time classes at college. I never talked about checking privileges back then. I just tried to make sure my kids didn't starve.

I miss that peanut butter in a gallon paint can though. That shit was good.

Re: “Memphis is Ugly. Cleveland Still Uglier, According to BS List

As someone who has lived all over the world, Memphis women, particularly those who trace their lineage to northern Mississippi, are the hottest on the planet. Whoever wrote this, is certifiably insane. Disregard any and all information from them, as it must be fundamentally flawed and without merit.

Re: “State Outsourcing Contract Signed Early, Seen As 'Betrayal of Public Trust'

There won't be savings. The costs will just be in other places. Like lawsuits.

Re: “Sounding the Call

They're not dying from snorting oxycontin these days, FUNK. They are dying from cheap heroin laced with fentanyl analogues, acutely. The ones who waste away and die from the soul-stealing effects of chronic use are another, much more insidious problem, however. Of the two, the second is far, far worse. We can deal with unintentional overdoses by making narcan and romazicon more available. What is harder, is reeling people back in, once they are out on the edges of existence, in fear of the pain of living, but with less and less desire to even do so, after progressive wildly spinning cycles of rushing and crashing...

Re: “Revisions of Overton Gateway Plan Revealed

Planning for parking is a common zoning requirement in most large cities. Maybe that should be our standard as well. We already have the Zoo predating our green spaces. It would be best to plan for the activity which will be there BEFORE construction of the apartments, not after they go up.
