Re: “Memphis: Becoming a Real City of Good Abode

To be fair, it was the suburbs that leeched the money out of our educational system in order rebel against the the American meltingpot in order to keep blacks as a permanent under class.

But hey, let's blame the kids that didn't get air conditioning and heat, not the profiteers that turned failed Dust Bowl farms into "new" shanty towns built of substandard materials in "good" neighborhoods that magically, 10-15 years later, become the worst of the worst parts of town like Frayser did.

Meanwhile the strong brick homes of South Memphis have been rebranded as "cooper-young" and gentrified into one of the best neighborhoods in the state of TN.

Re: “Memphis: Becoming a Real City of Good Abode

Are you nuts????

Memphis has morphed into a filthy, crime ridden, "3rd Worldlike" city with one of the lousiest school systems in the entire country. Employers have their hands full trying to find employables who can perform intellectually at better than a Grade 5 level.

Re: “Grizzlies 105, Pelicans 102: The Grizzlies Won? On Purpose?

I don't think Grizzlies (san Marc) were trying to win yesterday. Pelicans are an awful team without Davis. They outdid Grizzlies at bad plays. For a 0.5 team it is clear that Pelicans don't belong in playoffs. It is only because UTAH, LAC, and GRIZZLIES are not playing good this year (for various reasons) that PELICANS are in playoff picture.

Re: “"A Man for All Seasons" — Lewis Donelson's Century

Mr. Baker,
I know if I had been paying closer attention, I probably wouldn't have to ask this question but on today's scene, who might approach Mr. Donelson's class? In today's climate is it even possible for someone like him rise up?

Re: “Krog leaves Interim

What is it about Interim that leads to so much turnover? Has any other seemingly successful and somewhat established upper-end restaurant in town had nearly as many chefs and owners over the past decade? What's the real scoop?

Woot! Woot! The next step in protecting our water is reform of Shelby County's Groundwater regulations--public hearings to come in late January or early February. Stay informed on Facebook at https://www.facebook.com/groups/ProtectOur… or join Protect Our Aquifer at http://protectouraquifer.org/

Re: “Memphis Zoo Sued For Alleged Gender Discrimination

Wow. If true, this could be devastating for the zoo. I would imagine Brady already expended most of his (and the zoo's) political capital and goodwill in forcing his preferred parking solution down the public's throat.

Any government/non-profit interface is fraught with peril.

Re: “Memphis Zoo Sued For Alleged Gender Discrimination

He should have never been hired. Aged animals sold from Memphis zoo to canned hunting ranches. I wonder if his lovely wife will flip the bird to this litigant like she did to park protectors one night? I wonder how his fox hunting club is doing? I wonder if the zoo's books would stand a real audit? I wonder where his board members have been for all these years? I wonder what goods he has on folks that allow him to flip off the whole city?

Re: “Memphis Zoo Sued For Alleged Gender Discrimination

Of course hes a misogynistic boss, he treats the zoos mother City like shit and only cares about money, not citizens of the city the zoo is supposed to exist for or the animals that exist in the zoo. I wish the zoo would ditch 5 buck Chuck off into retirement where he can stew and moan about liberals while he watches Fox News and Murder She Wrote.

Re: “Memphis Zoo Sued For Alleged Gender Discrimination

Sherman, more like $3.6 million per year, if it happens to be a year in which there are no special assessments for hippo exhibits and whatnot. A million here, a million there, pretty soon youre talking real money.

He should have been fired over the parking catastrophe.

As for this woman, Im sure there are two sides but her forged email claim seems sketchy.

Never lead of with easily debunked hyperbole.

He seems like a nice person to work for. Overstayed his welcome by a few decades...anyone home on that board? Asking for a $2 million a year taxpayer donor named Memphis.

Re: “Statue Removal Process Sets Wrong Precedent

Why does everyone opposed to the statue removal continue to ignore that this move was prompted by the state crafting a law which was ostensibly created for the entire state but in reality was to negate the will of the only majority-Black city in the state?
