Re: “US Goalkeeper Tim Howard Loves Memphis

I have met him many times at Huey's in collierville and started a conversation with hello Mr. Howard and he looked at me like I was gonna bring on a flood of crazy fans (he relaxed quickly after realizing it wasn't a World Cup year and it was Tennessee) he smiled and was super nice and remembered me a week later when he came in again. Tipped great and when I asked him how often he gets noticed he replyed only for six months every four years. I imagine that is going to change. Glad I got to talk to the greatest wall since the Berlin had a hulk baby with China. Great man

Re: “Whores in the Land of Walmart

Dunkin Donuts is nothing new to Northwest AR. We had one in Fayetteville back in the 70's or 80's. Franchises come and go.

Re: “The Great Snake Debate

If you're not doing at least 65, it's best to stay off of Sam Cooper...and the rest of 40/240 for that matter.

THIS? of all things? is an embarrassment to Memphis?

Re: “The Great Snake Debate

Ugh. I wish this would go away. It pains me to see animals in distress, as this one certainly is. This is an embarrassment to Memphis.

Re: “The Great Snake Debate

Why were they driving 65 on Sam Cooper?

What kind of a citified idiot thinks a rat snake is a water mocassin? Wimps.

Re: “Memphis Frogger

Driving on Riverdale the other night, six lanes, I thought I detected movement ahead of me. Basically, a car light disappeared momentarily. I hit the brakes, more out of instinct than anything, and barely avoided creaming three teenagers dressed almost entirely in black.

Then a few days ago on Ridgeway, three more teenagers crossed in front of me at the most leisurely and careless pace I've ever seen in a pedestrian with full mobility. I came to a complete stop while they wandered by in front of my car. Only one of them managed to turn her head enough to glance at me. They were almost run over in the next lane by a driver that either didn't see them or didn't care.

I've never seen anyone hit, but I once gave aid to a man I found lying in the street. He had just been run over. I also worked with a guy who was killed crossing Democrat on his way to the hub. He was working a second job there just so he could get insurance. Too sad.

Re: “Memphis Frogger

There are in fact laws on the books against jaywalking; obviously it isn't something that is really enforced, but does protect the driver in cases of pedestrians being hit while jaywalking. Of course, it is the driver's legal responsibility to avoid an accident to the best of his or her ability, but it is reassuring to know that if some dip walks out right in front of my car I won't be held criminally accountable.

After a bit of research, I found that the penalty for jaywalking in Memphis is a $50 fine or up to 30 days in jail. Now, I certainly don't think someone should be incarcerated for jaywalking (unless obviously they cause an accident), but think of all of the money the city could be bringing in and how many accidents could be avoided if they actually did start to enforce this law?!

So now, you can add a points system to your Memphis Frogger game! No, I don't mean actually trying to run people over - but each time you see a jaywalker add 50 points....I'd be quite interested to know how many points, i.e. dollars, you can rack up in a given day.

Is this American made prostitution or was it imported from China?

Re: “Whores in the Land of Walmart

Glad to have my vague memories confirmed, Merc. I've been rather mystified by the Dunkin Donuts craze because we used to have one here. I'd rather have Gibson's any day.

Re: “Whores in the Land of Walmart

Not to burst your bubble, but we used to have Dunkin Donuts here in the Bluff City. A good number of us never shed a tear when they left either.

I will concede that Bentonville, and even Fayetteville both have a pretty interesting food scene going on. Especially when one considers the size of the towns.
