Re: “Wonderstruck

Run, do not walk, to see this show about a girl born deaf and a boy deafened in an accident who search for their mother and father respectively in New York City. Cinematic genius combines black-and-white film depicting the Big Apple in 1927 and color shots portraying it in 1977. The story lines converge in the Smithsonian Museum of Natural History. The young actress is deaf, as are several actors portraying hearing people. Compelling finish. Worth the mystery

Re: “Dorothy "Happy" Jones, Legendary Activist, Dies

Happy welcomed me to the staff of the National Civil Rights Museum and to my newly adopted hometown of Memphis. Her passing will leave a void of activism and kindness. Barbara Andrews.
Dottie, so sorry for your loss.

Re: “Fooey!

Ah, look, another guitarist trash talking a drummer.

Remember when rock and roll came out, and it pissed off all the classical musicians because it was more about the big beat than the melody or harmony?

Next you'll be claiming Phil Collins is over rated, too.

Kudos to Ms Foster for that all too rare example of insight.

Re: “The Top 15 Memphis Tigers of All Time

Top Five: Larry Finch, Anfreenee Hardaway, John Gunn, Keith Lee, Dexter Reed...

Penny was the best, but Larry Finch will always be the face of Memphis Tiger basketball. Larry change the landscape of Tiger basketball and brought our city together. It is a shame he wasnt a better coach, but a great player with excellent court vision and ability to make everyone on the team better.

Larry Finch should have a statue on Beale Street in front of FedEx Forum.

Re: “Opposition Grows to Mississippi River 'Poopline' Project

Tom Volinchak,
Now that we have a scientist on the line,maybe you can give us an estimate of how many people upstream would have to be dumping their crap in the Mississippi before it makes a difference. And is there difference between Minnesota crap and East St. Louis crap?
And on a personal note, tap man or bottle man?

Re: “Opposition Grows to Mississippi River 'Poopline' Project

At the risk of upsetting folks with science, let's look at why this pipeline is absolutely meaningless to the Mississippi River ecosystem.

The river flows at 4 million gallons per second. The arithmetic tells you that this is roughly 350 billion gallons per day (no,multiplication and division is NOT math, it is arithmetic).

3.5 million diluted by 350 billion is a dilution of 1 part waste water per 100,000 parts of river water.

Furthermore, the biological and mechanical activity of the river will turn this waste into eco-friendly food for fish and flora.

Conversely, sent it to a treatment pond and it will wind up in the aquifer.

By the way, rain-water/storm-water sends far more toxic materials (oils, gas, grease, pesticides, animal waste, garbage, etc.) into the river than this pipeline ever will.

But hey, seriously, far be from me it to inject chemistry, physics, biology and water science into this conversation. By all means, carry on. Knock yourselves out. Sign the petition, residents. Take Hooterville and secede from the union.

Re: “Dorothy "Happy" Jones, Legendary Activist, Dies

Memphis is a better place because of her. She was an example of a strong woman to me as a teenager in early Republican politics in the 1960's.

Why write about it in the "Memphis Flyer" when it's doesn't have a Memphis theatrical release. Smh I guess our demographics don't fit. We are just not heavy enough.

I'm unfamiliar with the Windjammer, but its departure sounds like one of our fair city's many recent losses.

Re: “City Council Votes to End Beale Street Cover Charge

Chalk this up as a win for Memphis.

The whole point of Beale Street is that it's a place you can go even when you're broke and down on your luck. That's the quintessential story of the Blues, and to see people trying to suppress that indomitable spirit using spurious taxes masked as "fees" is frankly un-Memphian, un-Southern, and un-American.
