Re: “City Wants Input on Road Projects, Bike Lanes

"For those who were unable to make it to the meeting yesterday, a survey for each project will be available online for the next 21 days."

A link would help.

Re: “NEW UPDATE (More Names Added): More Layoffs Hit The Commercial Appeal

Donahue?? He's an institution!

That's the end of the CA for me. The absolute death knell. If I need to know something from the CA I'll ask someone who still subscribes to look it up for me.

If I can find anyone.

Re: “Theatre Memphis Announces 2017-18 Season: From Shrek to Florence Foster Jenkins

The whole "12 Angry People Other than White American Men" thing has always bugged me. The play was written for 12 angry white American men. In today's climate, that's what's going to give it the power to affect people. To leave them with a bad taste in their mouths. To affect change.

Yes, we have angry white American women. But right now, it's the men we need to be staring at, and this play is the perfect periscope.

Re: “Commercial Appeal Eliminating Paid Freelance Writers

I haven't employed the CA for years.

Sounds like the Memphis Magazine and the Flyer may have its choice of some great regular guests with no conflicts of interest to get in the way.

How much do I love that I left out a word in my rant?

Re: “WREG Reveals the Future of the Commercial Appeal

WREG lost credability way, way back. They're unapologetically biased in broadcast content and hideously inept in every endeavor from fact checking all the way to whoever answers the news desk phone. They're as easily provoked by viewer commentary as Trump is by Twitter. That they don't bother with an editor or with hiring an actual PR pro to handle interaction with the public is hardly surprising, and is just another example of WREG's extraordinary unprofessionalism.

But this... this article... it's truly a thing of beauty. I'm betting on a Carver High School valedictorian who's currently enrolled The University of Phoenix.

Can words be bronzed?
