Re: “A Post About Gluten Free Strippers and Effing Traffic

Dammit, up till now I've gotten away with blaming all my sore joint rubbing and itching on a gluten intolerance. There go my front row seats.

Re: “A Post About Gluten Free Strippers and Effing Traffic

Good to see. Stripping has always been such a formal, hidebound medium, glad somebody finally grew a sense of humor about it. But.. they can't strip here, right? what with the Baptists and all?

Re: “Pontotoc opening next week on South Main

I'm actually from Pontotoc, Mississippi. I'm really curious why they named it that, but definitely not offended. Sounds like it's going to do beautifully!

Re: “The WHBQties - Wow!

Does anyone know how I can get in touch with George Klein? I worked at WHBQ from 1964 to 1970. I started as a studio cameraman and was a director when I left to move to Atlanta. I also directed Talent Party during my time at WHBQ. I graduated from Treadwell High School and Memphis State. I live in Chesapeake, Virginia now. Hope to hear from someone. Thanks.

Re: “Which History Should We Honor?

The history argument is a smokescreen. The man, the arguments and all those who support it are known quantities.

Re: “Documentary 1948: Creation and Catastrophe Explores the Roots of the Israeli-Palestinian Conflict

Draiman,
So full of bullshit don't know where to begin. Let's put it this way, if a bunch of Native Americans swarm your house kill a couple of your children and throw you into the street, whatcha gonna do, call the cops or God? If the Canaanites bust into your home in Palestine and do the same where is your logic going to lead you?
The issue here is not so much that a crazy mother like you is loose but that our government spends billions to feed your homicidal fantasy.

Re: “Documentary 1948: Creation and Catastrophe Explores the Roots of the Israeli-Palestinian Conflict

Jerusalem, Judea and Samaria are Jewish territory - No annexation is required.
If anything it may need to be re-incorporated or re-patriated and Israels sovereignty applied and any Arab individuals committing terror and violence will be expelled and their assets confiscated to pay for the damages.
Let me pose an interesting scenario. If you had a country and it was conquered by various foreign powers over a period of time. After many years you have taken back you country and land in various defensive wars. Do you have to officially annex those territories? It was always your territory and by retaking control and possession of your territory it is again your original property and there is no need to annex it.
Jewish roots and rights to all the land of Greater Israel are stronger than ever!
If I am turned out of hearth and home and remain outside one night, I am legally entitled to return the following day. If I suffer for ten, twenty, five thousand or fifty thousand nights, does my right of return stand in inverse relationship to the length of my exile? Quite the contrary; my right to return and recover my freedom becomes stronger in direct proportion to what I have endured, not by virtue of some abstract arithmetic, but because of the nights spent in exile, and because I want my children, to be spared a similar experience.

Re: “Documentary 1948: Creation and Catastrophe Explores the Roots of the Israeli-Palestinian Conflict

throrough, detailed, clear...definitely a scholarly work, much moreso than history channel type of stuff, and it really tackles the topic of palestinian displacement over this time period with an honestly id never come across. with the amount of content and documentation they included, what they didnt have time for must be huge. given the time the events happened (1947-1949), this film and this project is likely the last time anyone can collect all the testimony and data into one place, the last time somehting like this could be done.

Re: “Let GCT's Honky Tonk Angels Sing for You

REO was my favorite band in High School. Cheese and all. I remember they had a habit of leaving out the "g" in words like Turning and Burning. The lead singer Kevin Cronin had this strong Midwestern accent and I remember his introductions between songs at the concerts as much as I do the music.

Re: “New Mural Installed on Highland Strip

Sorry Funkbrs, since you didn't actually say "all the Loebs" in your first post, I didn't understand you meant "all the Loebs". But there it is in your second post amid all the patronizing. And of course I was there in the '60s, even ran into old Bill 2 or 3 times (once literally), I had a teenaged friend who was hit on by ole wheelchairy Henry and spit out their bbq on occasion.

Re: “Brooks Leaders Confirm Interest in Riverfront Move

Sarah- have you been downtown? The site they are describing is located 30 feet above the historic high water mark for the Mississippi River. In fact, topography indicates that the elevation of the site on Front Street is only 30 feet lower than the elevation of the museum at its current location.

Another way to look at it: for the proposed site downtown to be flooded by the Mississippi River, it would require a flood of a scale that has never been witnessed here and is considered impossible by experts.

So that would be Bill, Henry, and any other Loebs named Loeb.
