Re: “The Trolley Stop Market

Had a great Saturday morning breakfast here. Fresh home-made bread/toast, real hash browns, fresh veggies in my omelet. We'll be back.

Re: “Undocumented Tennessee Students Denied In-State Tuition

Grove, the central point that you're missing is that 99 percent of these young folks did not make a decision to come here, illegally or otherwise. They were brought here by their parents, some as infants, and raised as Americans. Yes, they're "illegal" but they are caught in a hellish limbo and shouldn't be demonized. Send them "back" to a country they've never lived in? Or give them a legal path to gain citizenship by letting them pay in-state tuition and work to become productive citizens. That's the problem the DACA program is set up to solve. We need to quit blaming these young folks and start figuring out a way forward that is beneficial to all of us. These kids aren't the "enemy."

Re: “Memphis Greenlights Pro-Immigration Protest

Wait, I'm still trying to get past the allegation that the Flyer is "one of the last Bastille's of truth."
First I'd heard of this. But sure.

Re: “The Only Two Questions That Matter

Boy, that's some high-quality sarcasm, Ducky. You forgot to throw in "special snowflake," though, so points off there.

Re: “Being There: No App For That

Christine's column might be a better fit for Memphis Magazine. She should probably get in touch with the editor.

Re: “Clippers 115, Grizzlies 106: Extremely Lame and Not That Close

And yet, here you are, Ducky, year after year, faux name after faux name, trying to impress those awful liberals. How's it working out?
