Re: “Inside Mae Beavers: A Parody Arises

These instructions kind of reminded me of the Preppy Handbook written back in the early 1980s, that was also funny and dead on.

Re: “Gateway to Frayser

Frayser was a booming community back in the day. The four things that killed Frayser was annexation into Memphis, the shuttering of both Firestone and IH, the exodus of working families, and the gangsters moving in back in the 80s.

I hope development at the old Treasury store site is successful, but generally speaking, gov incentives do little for the money invested.

Re: “Warrants Issued Weeks After Man's Suicide at Murphy's

This happened a lot back when I was a probation/parole officer. It is rare to go on sweeps since management doesn't like paying OT. Pretty much, warrants are executed after a perp is arrested on a different charge.

Re: “Into the Forrest

towboatman, Did Michael Brown slaughter hundreds or thousands of American servicemen? No that would be Forrest. And so close to the 4th of July, shame on your treasonous terrorist sympathies. Go back to Russia.
Bruce, No reason to slander Neanderthals.

Re: “Warrants Issued Weeks After Man's Suicide at Murphy's

just another example of what a hillbilly backwater, Memphis is...the original warrant should have been served, and that person arrested...which would have prevented that horrible event.

Re: “Into the Forrest

How about St Louis walling off the plaque for Michael Brown and charging admission to it and donating the proceeds to the Civil Rights Museum?
I bet they clear $10 in the first 20 years.

So sorry to hear this! We have been going to the Grisanti restaurants since the beginning! What a delightful man. My prayers go out to Alex, Dino and Judd. Memphis just lost a legend!

Re: “Tennessee AG Adds Signature to Letter Demanding End of DACA

Nothing like accurate reporting. The guidelines require the applicant was no more than 31 years old in June 2012. So Bruce is correct. It applies to children that are as old as 36, not 40.

Re: “Warrants Issued Weeks After Man's Suicide at Murphy's

I'm playing Murphy's in a couple hours.

You cannot possibly overestimate how much I didn't need to see this.

I guess it is what it is.

Re: “Tennessee AG Adds Signature to Letter Demanding End of DACA

Rachel, there are so many misstatements in your post, it's hard to know where to begin. DACA allows young people who were brought here by their parents at a young age to find legal work and schooling and begin trying to forge a path to citizenship. These young folks have to have clean records. They've done nothing wrong and deserve a chance to contribute to our society. And they aren't 40 years old.

Re: “Tennessee AG Adds Signature to Letter Demanding End of DACA

Daca is an illegal executive action that put the citizens of a foreign country living in America and just arriving to America ahead of our OWN youth!! It was wrong from the beginning and is even more wrong that it's continued for this long!! Btw, many 'daca illegals' are darn near 40 years old!!!! Young people? I think not.

My son Scott decided to leave this world on his own 2 years ago. If anything like that happened I would have been an insane human being!!!!!!

Re: “Memphis' "Summer of Fear"

George died in October of 2015! He didn't die in March of 2016. That's just when the news caught wind of it because the prison didn't inform anyone.

Re: “Herman Green: Living Legend

"Dr. Green, what was it like playing with James Brown?"
"Man, FUCK James Brown."
"Fuck James Brown? Man was the Godfather of Soul, what do you mean 'Fuck James Brown'?!"
"Ain't nobody getting laid in a room with James Brown in it."
"How are you gonna blame James Brown for not getting laid?"
"Man, a woman will give up definitely having sex with you for a chance to have sex with James Brown so fast it'll make your head spin. Every time he'd leave the room, he'd take all the women with him. Fuck James Brown."

/\ anectdotal backstage conversation I had with Dr. G. I can neither confirm nor deny my state of sobriety during this exchange
