Re: “Confederate Group Promises 'Swarthy Convict' Cellmate for Those Removing Statues

The white flag of surrender is the only confederate flag that mattered in the end.

LoveBC,
I'm a Truman fan, but he was quite the racist, who conversely knew how to integrate the armed forces if not the elementary schools.
Mia,
What would Mel Brooks say?

Re: “Mayor: Greensward Deal Is a 'Win-Win-Win'

More like "Spin spin spin" bc the city has put a one million dollar price tag on the greensward for those who wish to preserve it which is more like extortion than a compromise.

Re: “Frayser to Have New Grocery-Anchored Shopping Center

Oh yeah, I think the Treasury closed in 1982. Mayor Crump never wanted the annex Frayser and Frayser was a prosperous community before it was annexed and supported much of the city of Memphis until the mid-70s.

Frayser was hurt by IH and Firestone shutting down, and the influx of thugs.

Re: “Mayor: Greensward Deal Is a 'Win-Win-Win'

"uses no city tax dollars, leaving them to be dedicated to core services." Mayor is again misguided. I don't consider 3-4M of taxpayer monies annually to MZS for operations as a "core service".

Re: “County Officials Seek End of Federal Monitoring of Juvenile Court

I think we should ask Henri Brooks since she has the integrity to decide if the poor misunderstood juvenile delinquents are happy in juvenile court detention. Does anyone else think this idea holds water?

Harry S Truman used to belong to the Sons of Confederate Veterans.

Scott, Mullins, Cracko, and Memphomania, I'm curious, would we find this as amusing if they were neo-nazis? I mean, maybe they are, wouldn't be much of a stretch.

Re: “The Trimble Monument in Forest Hill Cemetery

Vance Lauderdale, Frank Trimble is my Great, Great Grandfather. If you would like to know more about him, my mother has almost his entire life story documented. I'd be happy to put you in touch.

The Sons Of Jim Crow have a rich fantasy life full of swarthy men who like to play dress-up. It's a kinky cos-play kind of thing.

Re: “Frayser to Have New Grocery-Anchored Shopping Center

Is this where "The Treasury" used to be? Anyone else remember that department store?

Re: “Mayor: Greensward Deal Is a 'Win-Win-Win'

Heres hoping the "Save the Greensward" folks have the ability to support a progressive set of candidates in the next council elections. Remember, the Chamber of Commerce asked to not receive funding from the city for one purpose. To funnel cash into the campaigns of people who will do their bidding. Berlin Boyd, for example, was funded by the Chamber and a handful of good ole boy white male Republicans.

@brichy

You're super scared we might let Frayser loose on the county, aren't you?

Re: “Mayor: Greensward Deal Is a 'Win-Win-Win'

Interesting definition of "compromise:" Have victims of infringers pay for infringer's parking lot. Only in Memphis would this be considered a compromise. This guy. Let's hope no vote split next mayoral election.

The Brushy Mountain Penitentiary has been closed since 2009. It is in the process of being converted to a distillery and concert venue. Lee Millar, threatens us with a night of drinking Tennessee Whiskey and dancing. I'm so scared...

Re: “Watergate II

Fortunately, reading and seeing aren't the same thing.

At times like this Iwonder if anyone else has a dictionary.

Imply: the existence of something not expressly stated.

Infer: Deduce from evidence rather than explicit statements.

See Depp.
