Politicians should be focused on rewriting the future not rewriting history
You could have written about those dirt bag Republicans legallizing Cannibas oil and yet you chose abandonned buildings. Come on BDub dont be mailing it in becuase it's pretty outside.
Germantown or not? WTH??
I think what's in it for deniers is money. We are the already the worlds police. Now we have to be the worlds fighters of climate change? The middle class is already squeezed to the brink and paying for things like catalytic converters at 2k a pop on our cars isn't going to do anything to correct the problem if the rest of the world doesn't join in. Putting a carbon tax on us to solve the liberal guilt is fine just don't put it on me
F it! "That's right Lebowksi, That's your answer to everything"
BW Please stop drinking the cool aid! Could you be more condescending to your fellow citizens and neighbors? It's satire, I get it. I wonder if "Editors" in Manhattan bash Queens or Brooklyn in this same way or what Kansas City residents say about their 38 suburbs. You see it as us versus them. The anger you have for your neighbor is palatable. I wasn't born here so please forgive my ignorance. I'm just trying to rear my family in the best way I know how. While the average Memphis appraisal just went down 18%. My East Memphis rental was appraised 30% higher and Memphis and Shelby are going to raise the taxes another 10%. How about a thank you for subsidizing your next Center City Commission PILOT? The last time you paved my east Memphis street was 1964. I checked. After visiting LeBonheur last week, I noticed Poplar and Cleveland was paved like the German Autobahn. I work across from St. Francis hospital, the road is so bad it would be better off if it was gravel. There is no telling the tax revenue generated in this 3 mile radius. As a former midtowner, I really enjoyed the perspective of this comic piece. As a current citizen of Germantown for the last 14 years, I just don't understand the apathy for suburbs. Where I choose to live has nothing to do with race or crime , I moved because I wanted to live a few minutes drive from where I work and and worship and send my kids to school. That's great you want to live a short walk away from your favorite restaurant, but guess what BW...unless you don't have a car anymore that's a fantasy. The only walkers in in June in Memphis are people walking to a bus stop. We don't fear crime, I fear my children fearing crime. I have the nicest Memphis policeman living across the street from me, he doesn't want to raise his 6 month old at South Parkway and Third or Tutwiler. He is black male 6' 3" 260 and carries a colt 40 and a AR 15, believe me he isn't scared of crime or boredom or Bahama Breeze. You think we don't know if Memphis fails so do we? Maybe we all just feel helpless there is nothing we can do about until after it does.......but you can bet your donkey who will be responsible for picking up the pieces ? i.e. Memphis City Schools BTW it mean a lot we have your approval and blessing to run our own schools. Appreciate it.
