Re: “Commercial Appeal Editor To Staff: "Work From a Coffee Shop."

It would be the first interesting change in a long time.

Re: “Commercial Appeal Editor To Staff: "Work From a Coffee Shop."

I think Bruce is onto something in his suggestion that the CA become a true afternoon paper. But I doubt that fits in the corporate template at Gannett.

Re: “RDC Announces Plan to Raise Atlantis

Okay-I had to look up candiru fish. I was laughing really hard until I did that. Now, my life is consumed by guarding my genitalia.

Re: “RDC Announces Plan to Raise Atlantis

It's possible that Lenderman was being manipulated by a candiru fish that entered his body the usual way becoming a conduit for Atlantean messaging.

Re: “RDC Announces Plan to Raise Atlantis

I concede that it is entirely possible that over the course of thousands of years the lost city of Atlantis could have migrated from the bottom of the Strait of Gibralter across the Atlantic Ocean and into the Gulf of Mexico and upstream through the Mississippi River to a site "just west of Mud Island." As well, "psychic contact with the Atlanteans while in an ayahuasca-induced trance state" and consultation with the Atlantean Council of Wisdom all seem like something that could happen. But come ON, do you really expect us to believe Linderman used the words "totally cool?"
I cry foul!

City of Memphis: please do something to the pedestrian crossing at Poplar and Dunlap.

Dutiful LeBonheur employees keep getting struck by vehicles crossing the street on their way to work!

Glad to see them go, the Press Scimitar was better anyway and it died long ago

Re: “Commercial Appeal Editor To Staff: "Work From a Coffee Shop."

It's sadder to see a giant company not from here come to town and kick loyal decades long employees to the curb, and diminish the product, indifferent to the community. We are a free, locally-owned weekly paper in the same market as the CA, a paid daily. We are only tangentially in the same business with Gannett-- who are kicking the crap out of the paper. And if I'm kicking anybody, it's Gannett I'm kicking. I get that it's confusing. But that's an important distinction

Re: “Commercial Appeal Editor To Staff: "Work From a Coffee Shop."

Always take a competitor's take on things with a grain of salt. And it's sad to see other reporters kick a paper while it's down.

Re: “Made in America

Oh, no, I just found out that the manufacturer of my mattress said warranty is void because I removed tag. Clever way to disallow most claims, I figure.

Hey Cheryl! I can confirm that schedule having dropped you off and picked you up a time or two back in our school days. My WREG gig started at 3 a.m. Relevant daily content's demanding stuff.

It's not really a morning newspaper any more. It's an afternoon paper that comes out the next day.

Re: “Commercial Appeal Editor To Staff: "Work From a Coffee Shop."

Normal working hours at a morning newspaper? My shift at the CA was always 5:30 p.m to 1:30 a.m. That's when the work of putting the paper together happened.

Yeah like, uh, you know, there was that one sorta, maybe, kinda... Nope, sounds un-American.
The best we can hope for is a Viking invasion. Or if Jerry Brown wasn't such a dick sometimes.

Re: “Fancy Art Critic "Knocked Out" by Memphis Pedestrian Crossings

I work downtown and have yet to see a single person sit at those tables. I think that says something when even the homeless population isn't using seating. Not to mention the brilliance of putting a bunch of tables and chairs on top of asphalt with absolutely no cover in the middle of summer.
