Re: “Senator Alexander Favors Immediate Vote on Supreme Court Nominee

Devos, no on Impeachment, yes on slamming extreme judges through during a pandemic election. Not a legacy to be proud of. Pathetic end of a career. #sad

Re: “Kustoff Defends Postal Changes

Kustoff's unremarkable political career will be remembered for only 2 things: voting against the post office and voting to not impeach the current traitor in chief. Hard to believe this man was ever a prosecutor. #sad

Re: “Fairgrounds Project Branded As 'Liberty Park'

Perfect metaphor for this administration's lack of vision and respect for the citizens of Memphis. The constituency for the use of the fairgrounds is the adjacent neighborhoods (and the rest of Memphis), and the plan takes none of their concerns into consideration. They are already here and do not need a hotel! The people of Memphis spent hours over months and years at the community meetings asking for things like water parks and amenities for Memphis citizens. What ends up in the proposal? A hotel nobody wants or asked for with no interested tenants, a sports complex for out of town teams that may or may not exist, and none of the amenities the citizens asked for. When will the people of Memphis get a park they deserve, want, & asked for?

Re: “Alexander Says Trump Should Wear Mask, Addresses Other Controversies in Chat with Rotary

So brave of the ranking Senator from Tennessee to go against his party & decry the attack on peaceful protestors in our nation's capital one month ago this past Monday! Thank you for standing up against the fascist attack of pepper gas & rubber bullets by "president" & off the rails attorney general for the intent of pulling off a photo op. Oh, wait, gutless Senator hasn't said a peep about this attack on Democracy. If you are too old to defend Democracy, it's time to sit down. Please resign today. Tennessee deserves better.

Re: “Real Talk: About the Grizzlies and the Playoffs

Ha Ha. LOL. Nice clickbait. GTFOH! Go Grizz. Whoever wrote this article fundamentally does not understand the goal of fielding an NBA team. Do better. "The risk of getting hurt urges me to not participate in trying to qualify for your silly league playoff contests." Maybe the worst nba take ever. Happy April Fools Day.

Re: “Zoo Lot Construction to Begin Monday

September, 2015, Memphis Daily News: "Strickland said he would give the Overton Park Conservancy, the Memphis Zoo and other parties a matter of months to get cars off the greensward.

"Within six months of my administration we will get an agreement between the parties, or I will make the decision myself, he said. It wont take four years. Were going to do it in six months."

Re: “Memphis’ Park System Rank Improved, But Still Low

How many of the 86 cities ahead of Memphis allow cars to park in the middle of their parks on the grass? How many of the 86 other mayors ahead of Memphis' hire someone who has never worked in parks to run their parks?
