Hmmm. Something is missing here... or perhaps been overlooked...?

Re: “Tim Sampson Recalls the Flyer’s Early Daze

We've come along way, Tim. An 18 year old radical environmentalist I know was working ground support for the Greenpeace crew hanging the banner off the North Memphis chemical plant pictured on your first cover. The chemical plant is now long gone, but the the activist, now 48, still lives on the banks of the yet polluted Cypress Creek downstream. BTW, he still considers himself a radical environmentalist ;)

Re: “Flipping the Switch on a New Solar Farm in Millington

MLGW (and its customers) should be the full beneficiary of this project, including lower cost of the energy generated and the Renewable Energy Credits (RECs) that come with it.

Instead TVA gets the benefits of both while they profit from selling the power back to us at wholesale rates and keeping the RECs too.

Re: “Tim Sampson Recalls the Flyer’s Early Daze

Tim, your memory serves you well. As the one who actually did the paper cutting, waxing and pasting in the first year of the Flyer's existence (as well as many illustrations in order to protect our tiny budget), I can confirm that getting an issue out to the public was a labor-intensive process that seems only a few steps removed from a stylus and clay tablets compared to today's digital print production capabilities. And you and I often worked on Sunday mornings, remember? For a few hours, to meet that Tuesday deadline. Last-minute changes created some close calls: one time I was finishing a page (cardboard paste-up) on the trunk of a car. The guy who always drove the issue down to the printer in Mississippi had the motor running as I slapped in an ad sold only minutes earlier. Another time the power went out in our building on Tennessee Street as the deadline approached, and I pasted up the last boards by flashlight.

Re: “Memphis Doctors, Nurses Charged With Illegally Distributing Opioids

Just another media fad which the politicians, including part of law enforcement, feed from.

Once it was pot, then heroin, then cocaine, then crack, then meth, then heroin and fentanyl, and now opioids. Wait a few months and they'll be a new, bigger danger which we need to be rescued from.

Meanwhile, "progressives" in places like NYC have made drug enforcement a joke by reducing penalties on possession to a point where the dealers can do business without fear of serious impediment.

Any time you have addictive substances, there is misuse and people willing to profit from this regardless of the law. And the sky still hasn't fallen.

Re: “The American Health-Care Nightmare

It's the wrong issue.

There are examples of widespread health in the past.

Because preventative and curative is better than proprietary and proscriptive.

Back when people understood the natural approaches to health. And what caused (causes) chronic sickness. Ask your doctor ... because pharma doesn't fund medical schools to teach it. Shot down Royal Rife ... same thing done about 10 times in history ... just not here and now.

Body inputs do affect body outputs. Chronic disease is a body output.

Amazon's health benefits look to be interesting. To me.

Re: “Memphis Doctors, Nurses Charged With Illegally Distributing Opioids

Again I ask if all drugs are legalized where will the illegal drug dealing economy turn for money?

Re: “Memphis Doctors, Nurses Charged With Illegally Distributing Opioids

ALJ2, This is about legal drugs. If illicit drugs were legal and without the need of an rx (read above article), they wouldn't be sold on the street and they would be taxed. I would think a boozer and free enterpriser like yourself would appreciate that.
Funk, I'm sure you've posted on this before, but where do you stand on the legalization of all drugs?

Next week we'll have an article favoring the decriminalization of drug sale and use, or why we should put crack dealers back on the streets.

Re: “Memphis Doctors, Nurses Charged With Illegally Distributing Opioids

Nice to see the actual culprits that are out here killing people with dope getting caught instead of getting to abuse their privilege to blame the opioid epidemic on the classes of people who suffer, and not the ones who get rich.

I drove one in Evansville, Indiana the summer of 1965. My boss also owned some pizza joints there. We had some with international motors and some had only battery packs. I ran out of battery more than once. Does anyone know who he was, or Where I can buy one? Bill 785-229-5474.
