Re: “Railgarten Clarifies Use of Shipping Containers, Parking Issues

Well, I suppose this is still better than trying to put the food-truck restaurant on the tiny corner down the street, where almost no parking could be had. I would guess they decided it was better to ask for forgiveness than permission. We will see how much this costs them, since they were still operating over the weekend in the buildings Code Enforcement approved.

Re: “District 95 Showdown

You know what? If all these folks actually vote for Jim Tomasik, then Julie Byrd Ashworth has a good chance to win this race. Keep it coming, folks!

Re: “Undocumented Tennessee Students Denied In-State Tuition

Those are the words of someone who must get their news from Newsmax or worse. To be honest, they probably pay more in sales taxes than you do with lesser benefit. And, I suspect they probably work harder as well.

Re: “Three (Quick) Thoughts on the Lawsons' Exodus

I think back to the late 80s and early 90s, when Larry Finch had somehow angered Ted Anderson at Hamilton. Anderson then helped Nolan Richardson build a recruiting pipeline to Memphis for Arkansas, which led to 3 Final Fours, 2 Championship Games and one National Championship. Arkansas started FOUR Memphians the night they defeated Duke in 1994 to win it all.

And Piscotty is going to have to wear a football helmet on the basepaths now. :)

Re: “Tubby Smith: "Learning Experience"

I question whether Tubby wants to go after top-tier talent but rather go after players that aren't quite as good but are easier to fit into HIS system. His recruiting track record is hardly the best. On the other hand, we may have unreasonable expectations here.

Re: “Gannett Unveils Plan for The Commercial Appeal

But the paper will be edited and laid out in Nashville and printed in Jackson, all work that could be done BY Memphians FOR Memphians.
