This is what happens when 75% of the electorate stays home :(

Re: “Mayor: Memphis in May Will Return to Tom Lee Park Next Year

This is headline is lousy. It's not newsworthy that Memphis in May will remain in Tom Lee Park, as it always has, next year. What's newsworthy is that Strickland is moving the festival in 2021. Shame on y'all for carrying water for Strickland's campaign.

Re: “Taxing and Spending

Richard,

That's the most misogynistic blathering I've read so far this year.

Great job, asshole!

Re: “'Pork Report' Targets ServiceMaster, County Commission, Megasite

Surprisingly, I agree with a lot of this being problematic except for the bit about the public golf courses.

That's a bit like saying Overton or Tom Lee or any other public park "lost money."

Public assets aren't designed to generate revenue. They're meant to be enjoyed by the public. I'm no big golfer (I've maybe played three times unless you count Putt-Putt), but I think it's good that golf (traditionally kind of a rich person thing) can be accessible to folks who can't afford to play at expensive country clubs.

Also, if we're gonna complain about the city "losing money on golf courses," then let's talk about the tax incentives in place for the FedEx Forum and Autozone Park too...

Re: “Former MPD Officer Faces Death Penalty on Federal Charges

Not a bad start, I guess. We still have ~1,998 MPD officers to lock up for theft, kidnapping, abuse and other atrocities.
