Re: “Is Meddlesome's 201 Hoplar in Bad Taste?

Julie,
I was there about for 40 years, but that referencing came from folks who may not have looked forward to the visit. I also heard it used thus by the media. Sometimes simply saying Bryant St evoked that particular destination. And of course, as you know, court might also be held there.
We'd also take Bryant St as an easier access to the Bay Bridge from the Mission.

@CL Mullins, I have never heard the San Francisco jail called 850 Bryant. Not saying you're wrong-but I lived in SF for quite a while, even worked at a law office once-never heard it referred to as 850 Bryant.

Hey BP45, haven't you heard? Herpes sores are badges of honor today, very hip.

This place is in Cordova. That's about as hip as a herpes sore. So call it hop-sy daisy, for all I care.
Can't we speed up the deannexation please.

Re: “Is Meddlesome's 201 Hoplar in Bad Taste?

Julie,
In San Francisco it was called 850 Bryant. I imagine among people who have to frequently give directions, addresses often take the place of names.

Re: “Is Meddlesome's 201 Hoplar in Bad Taste?

We're just lucky cause our jail comes with a cool sounding address. If it were are 500 Madison, we'd probably just call it "the jail".
201 Poplar just has a cool ring to it.

Re: “Is Meddlesome's 201 Hoplar in Bad Taste?

What's bad about it that this is the only city I am aware that the jail is known by address. For a city with an image problem-it doesn't feel good or right. Maybe after a few beers...

Re: “Guild: Severance Delays at Commercial Appeal 'Shameful'

Jets, I totally agree with you. However, the public sector management is every bit as nefarious as the private sector. In Baltimore, the police were told to clear the streets of drug dealers. They arrested repeat drug dealer Freddie Gray, whom then proceeded to stand up and bang his head against the van's walls. The damn fool ended up with a broken neck, and six police officers were persecuted by an ambitious DA with visions of higher political office in her future. And let us not forget how Wall Street Hillary visited the family of Darius Stewart, the bond jumping child molester/cop attacker from Illinois and/or Iowa during her campaign, but forgot all about slain cop Sean Bolten.
Basically, no matter if one works in the public, private or non-profit sectors, one must realize that management as a whole cannot be trusted. I have learned, and eventually prospered by learning to save and invest, to CMA, having a basic knowledge of employment law and an emergency legal fund, and literally having actionable intel on those above me.
On your final point Jets, we must indeed be careful about how we cast our ballots. Dems sure don't care about working people the way Republicans care about corporations. We have a quasi-permanent federal legislature since one must have millions of dollars to make a credible run just to be a US representative. People of average means should have a shot at political office.

Re: “Trump Über Alles

I totally agree with Jill that somebody needs to do a story about that damned welcome center - and perhaps all the welcome centers in Memphis.
Why is it taking so long to get this new one opened? And, it's pretty paltry considering how long it's been in the works. For the time it's taking, I expected a huge metro-plex. But it just looks like a typical rest area. Hell, even crappy West Memphis has a nicer Welcome Center just off 40 West.
And, why are the other Memphis Welcome Centers so poorly placed? How could a traveler on I-40 East find their way to the Downtown Welcome Center? I've lived here over a decade and I barely know how to get to it.
Why is the 40 West center (at the Northern entrance to Memphis) in such a shitty location? You have to exit then pass back over the Interstate, then make a left and go about a hundred yards to get to it. I've never seen a Welcome Center so poorly placed. I think somebody got a big payoff for that screw job. Now it sits unused most of the time. How much is it costing to keep it operating? And how many people actually use it in a year?

Re: “Puck, Yes?

Is there really anybody asking why Memphis doesn't support The Preds? I haven't heard that at all, but I don't follow sports so maybe it's being discussed in the sports media?
This feels like just another Memphis vs Nashville rivalry created entirely by the local media.

Cool, I sure wish the Sterick and now the 100 N. Main building could get developed.

Re: “Puck, Yes?

For the most part, my friends in Nashville support the Grizzlies, especially at playoff time, no matter what they may think of our town. (most of them love Memphis, by the way, so they may be outliers).

So, even though the Preds eliminated my beloved Chicago Blackhawks in the first round this year (by out Blackhawking the Hawks and making them look old). I sucked it up and rooted for them all the way through the Cup. No matter what you may think of Nashville (and you would probably be right), there is nothing wrong with returning the favor. If we had been in the NBA Finals, I suspect most Nashvillians would be waving Growl towels at every opportunity.

Re: “Trump Über Alles

If Hilliarity had just divorced Bill in 1998 after he admitted to lying to his Cabinet about Lewslurpinsky, Hilliarity would have won the 2000 election in a walk.
