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!

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

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!

What jcov40 said.

(And, jcov40), yes, "reappraisal" and "appraisal" are the terms of art.)

Re: “Goodbye Josie: The Memphis Theatre Community Loses a Beloved Educator

I worked with Josie during the summer of '65 at the Arrow Rock Lyceum Theatre. I was 19 and knew it was, even while we were living it, a pivotal time in all our lives. We shared a great appreciation for Steve Malin and Henry Swanson (who had both been my teachers at the University of Florida.) I remember that Josie was willowy, mischievous, had a robust laugh, and was (as we all were) deeply committed to being completely present in her work and in her life. I never saw her after that summer, yet I knew she would make her artistic mark wherever she would reside. It was heartwarming to read of her accomplishments and to know how many lives she touched. ~ H. Richard Greene

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: “Roland vs. Lenoir: Next Year’s Mayoral Battle Flared Up in County Budget, Tax-Rate Debate

As with all reappraisals, thousands of homeowners in the county will receive tax increases. some will pay the same taxes and many, perhaps thousands, will get tax cuts. That would have been true wherever the rate was set. Since a reappraisal affects each property owner individually, it is impossible during a reappraisal year to set a rate that would give everybody a tax cut without bankrupting the county. It is possible to calculate mathematically the
percentage of appraisal increase that would result in a homeowner's paying the same property taxes this year as last year. At the adopted $4.11 rate, it's 6.3 percent. Had the rate been set at $4.13 it would have been 5.8 percent. Homeowners whose appraisals went up more than 6.3 percent will pay higher county property taxes in the coming year than they did in the past year. Those whose reappraisals went down or increased less than 6.3 percent, will have a tax cut. If you want to know whether you and your neighbors will be paying higher or lower taxes or the same, go to the county assessor's website and check the reappraisal values compared to last year's values. jcov40

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.

Memphis as Chuck burgers are amazing, I'm happy to report, which is why I'm currently trying to stay away from them. I know I'd get horribly fat if I don't restain myself.
