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: “Warrants Issued Weeks After Man's Suicide at Murphy's

Show went well. Alyssa was there. She even got behind the soundboard for a bit. We showered the room with yellow rose petals. I'd like to believe it was a beautiful attempt to heal and reclaim one of the last spaces left in Memphis for live original local music. I imagine there are still 7 people who will somehow find a way to dislike and be offended by this regardless.

If you weren't there, I can't expect you to understand.

Re: “The Swinging Sixties

Believe Club La Rond (?) was on Cleveland and Union, saw Charlie Rich there. Bunny Lee danced in a lot of the places in crosstown. Remember well the late nights with honeysuckle in the air, on the way down to Hernando's Hideaway.

Re: “A Compromised Greensward “Solution”

Dennis Lynch and my proposed parking plan at fnolan.com/z/ shows that the Zoo parking needs can easily be met - and 1000 additional spaces besides, on the Zoo's footprint, without taking one square inch of Greensward. And throws in an improved traffic flow which eliminates traffic backups in the park and on N. McLean.

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

Late response, but hand-in-hand with deannexation would be a return to a rural level of services such that deannexation would be cost-effective. Otherwise we would simply be passing the costs of a low-density area from the city to the county (and we Memphians of course double-pay taxes already.) My vision would be returning most everything outside the loop to a rural level of services, unless it's incorporated as a municipality.

Re: “CITY BEAT

This loser judge tore my life apart when I was a kid. I was a genius kid when I was young but that all changed when my mom lied to the judge when my mom wanted a divorce from my dad after he gave her everything. He gave her 4 houses, a car, paid off her nursing school, paid off her 10,000 maxed out credit card and still she cheated on him saying that he wasn't making enough money for her. This was in the early 90's if I remember right. My dad had a investigator follow my mom for days and she ended up running up a $800+ phone bill that my dad also had to pay off. When they went to court. My mom said to this judge that she did nothing wrong and said my dad was doing all the bad things. Because of this judge, my mom got custody of me and she took me away from my dad and family for 5.5 years living in Louisiana. My first step dad I met when I was 8 years old beat me for being a smart kid. He thought that being smart was bad. But because of living there I started having epilepsy when I was 10 and a half years old. I'm glad this judge died of a heart attack and I don't care. I don't care about judges or lawyers. Lawyers get paid big bucks and the highest paid lawyers will win by paying off the judges with a bribe. And obviously I wasn't the only person who thought this judge was full of crap. several things are on the internet about him making a guy that raped a young girl not guilty and much more. I speak my mind. I know a couple lawyers in town from being friends with their wives. But they know I don't like that profession though. If it weren't for that judge of screwing up my life and taking me away and out of Memphis for years. I would have probably been a millionaire by now. But I've had 8 surgeries already including a right temporal lobectemy brain surgery that a neurosurgeon screwed up on in 98 which erased my memory completely. Which took me 6 years just to learn my name back again. My brain will never be 100% again.

Re: “Herman Green: Living Legend

Back in the late 80's (I guess, since we were in college) my friend and I went to King's Palace Cafe and watched Herman Green and the Green Machine. We thought we were so cool and sophisticated.

Re: “Tennessee AG Adds Signature to Letter Demanding End of DACA

If the moral point is that they didn't come here on their own, then ambition shouldn't be a factor.
This bright and shining, best and brightest shit is a part of what pisses of the working class. It accentuates the prejudice we feel from the elites across the political spectrum and further serves to keep separated this strata of society. Liberal and conservative elites while using a different lexicon to describe their American Dream both would have the working class fund their vision by sharing what we have.
This division is needed to keep separate those who should and would join together to force real equality regardless of ambition, academic excellence and hygiene beyond reproach.

Re: “Tennessee AG Adds Signature to Letter Demanding End of DACA

It applied to those who met the criteria and were ambitious enough to go thru the process of applying. Their choices were to remain here in the underground economy, unable to ever become citizens, or to return to a country most of them could barely remember, and in many cases, countries torn by violence toward women and civil strife. This program gave these people a shot at some sort of legitimacy. They didn't come here on their own. Why would we want to punish them? Why would we not want to give them a chance to succeed?

Re: “Tennessee AG Adds Signature to Letter Demanding End of DACA

Bruce,
In all fairness shouldn't the DACA apply to those who are less than bright, hard-working young people. Isn't that what America is all about?

Re: “Herman Green: Living Legend

Details are important. I noticed in the print edition you identified the picture of B.B. King, Herman Green, and Melvin Lee as being "in 1955." You wisely removed the date from the picture above. No way that picture was taken in 1955. (Maybe 1975?)

Re: “Into the Forrest

To the argument that taking the statues down will not "change history", I say, neither will leaving them standing. History is history...no one, or anyone's actions can change it. But if something represents a portion of history that is incredulously offensive to a majority of people who have no choice but to see this reminder in a public setting, take it away. If you can't understand why it would be so offensive as to require it's removal, maybe you need to read, study and research the situation a little further yourself. It isn't as simple a just accepting it to a lot of people.

Yep, now that I check, that's three names from the same IP address. All with the same writing style. Pick one and stick with it DanaSaraJocelyn, or I'll just kill your IP.

Re: “Tennessee AG Adds Signature to Letter Demanding End of DACA

Typical. When you have no legitimate rebuttal nor sustainable argument...attack the person(s). Yawwnnn. BTW, there are many of us who share the same internet, ie a household. Daca is illegal and must be cancelled. Daca illegals are deportable and the only ones I could ever get behind staying are those who are under 18, pretty close to 16. The rest are grown! Time for them to go back to their home countries, stop being cowards and fight for democracy in their own countries! Take their illegal parents and family with.

I think the discussion would be better if all the subjects weren't considered either "bright, hard-working young people" or mother hackers.

How many different names is the same author going to post under? Geez, grow a pair and stick to one name (maybe 2) already.
Is there anyway to ban an IP address?
