Re: “Karl Dean in Memphis Next Week

As stated, prominently in the second paragraph, LWC. But, upon further inspection, I can see why you added your note. My original language was not as precise as it is now (or as I remembered writing). I added a word or two, for (ahem) clarity's sake.

Re: “Karl Dean in Memphis Next Week

Just to clarify, Dean is there to help raise money for the Tennessee Voter Project and not his own campaign, correct

Re: “Last Weekend's NAACP Centennial Celebration Looked Back — and Forward

The ascension of Trump to the presidency, which required the heavy participation of white working/middle class voters that were probably former democratic voters, is purely the fault of the leaders of the national democratic party. They managed to spilt the party between working/middle class blacks and whites, assuring republican dominance. Evidently, the so-called leadership is blind to this reality.
Harold Ford is exactly right. I give Jr. credit for seeing how psycho the national democratic party was back in the 1990s when he became a US representative and a blue dog.
With a majority black populace, Memphis will continue to be a democratic stronghold for the foreseeable future. The local dems are so-self centered, they cannot see past their own elections and do not help out their colleagues.
However, it appears that Tennessee is now a solid red state, and the republican that wins the primary will also the be next governor of Tennessee, and electoral college votes will continue to go republican.

Re: “Federal Judgeship Rumored for Norris

Based on what you wrote in the article, my bet is that he would accept the judgeship.

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?

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

Asking Jefferson Beauregard Sessions to act on this request is an affront to our community. Shame.

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

If they're following all the rules, why are they nervous about being watched?

Re: “Filling in the Blanks

Once they let Loeb ream out midtown, the gentrification game was officially on.

We should have nipped Loeb in the bud and run him out of town on a rail when he first started slinking around the outskirts of town again.

We still can, too, if Memphis develops a little self confidence and internal fortitude.

Re: “Filling in the Blanks

It's a great day for Memphis when an incumbent Democrat female Property Assessor without explanation declines to run yet endorses the son of a wealthy white local property developer to succeed her. Face it, voters have been clamoring for this!

We need more white male sons of property developers assessing the property of developers.

Will he recuse himself on property owned by his father or his father's business partners?

Ultimately Jackson is too close to the figures he's trying to cover to do a good job for his readers. As is evidenced by the good ole boy photo he snapped with his phone. Lot's of back slapping amongst the khakis and polo shirts but no hard questions. Someone younger and of color may ask those hard questions because they need to be asked.

Re: “After Shooting, Kustoff Sees "Reset" of Bipartisan Feeling

It seems you've got to shoot a few people to get their attention. Maybe that's what the 2nd amendment was all about and why it immediately follows the 1st. It's our heritage, not hate.

Trump: "And he lined up the 50 people and they shot 49 of those 50 people, and he said to the 50th, you go back to your people and you tell them what happened -- and in 25 years there wasn't a problem."

Typical responses thus far by the Flyer lemmings. That was to be expected.

Re: “After Shooting, Kustoff Sees "Reset" of Bipartisan Feeling

There's no bipartisanship on the Internet. Conservatives are pooping themselves with excitement that there's finally a liberal bad guy that they can point to. We all know how much the conservatives love to play the victim.
But I doubt their good times will last. There's already another, deadlier shooting to talk about. I can't wait to find out this shooters party affiliation.

Trump: "Hillary wants to abolish -- essentially abolish the Second Amendment. By the way, if she gets to pick, if she gets to pick her judges, nothing you can do, folks. Although the Second Amendment people, maybe there is, I don't know."

Re: “After Shooting, Kustoff Sees "Reset" of Bipartisan Feeling

Trump: "Sometimes we talk a little bit tough. When I see somebody out swinging his fists, I say, Get em the hell out of here. Were a little rough. Journalists hate to hear that. 'Why did you act so viciously toward that young person that was really protesting? See he wasnt protesting. He was swinging. He was vicious. And you know what? They took him out. That was OK that day."
