Re: “Minh Nguyen Is New Chef at Bleu

Great, but what happened to the old chef? And isnt this at least the third new executive chef at this restaurant in five years? Wonder what the high turnover says about the state of affairs at the restaurant. Or about the viability of a high-end restaurant in a hotel in downtown Memphis. Based on my handful of visits over the years, the quality of the food and expertise of the chef at Bleu haven't been the problems. Best of luck to you, Minh Nguyen.

Re: “Purple Haze Can Serve Alcohol Until 5 A.M.

I dont have a dog in this fight. Couldnt less care less about what time any club on or near Beale stops serving alcohol. But I dont understand the relevance of the recent string of violence mentioned in this story. Was that string of violence an issue in this dispute? Is the violence somehow connected to the club selling alcohol until 5 a.m. instead of 3 a.m.? If so, maybe we should require all clubs to stop selling alcohol a few hours earlier.

Re: “Ostranders 2018: Picks, Pans, and "Who Got ROBBED?!?!"

Strongly agree about Kortland Whalum's performance in Raisin! He was robbed big time.

Re: “Rallings Calls Media Coverage of ACLU Lawsuit “Erroneous”

A suggestion to the Memphis Flyer's editor and website design specialist: Perhaps it's time for a major revamp of the Flyer's website. On a day when one of your reporters beats the competition to the punch on filing two significant time-sensitive hard news stories, how do you justify continuing to give the most prominent spot on the webpage to a fairly evergreen and insignificant "We Recommend" item for seemingly the umpteenth consecutive day? Please explain the puzzling rationale.

Re: “Penny Hardaway: Hall of Famer?

Ditto on the hell yeah...Even though his NBA career was cut short by injuries, Penny arguably played long enough to accomplish enough to be equally if not much MORE deserving than Maurice Cheeks, Sarunas Marciulionis, Jamaal Wilkes and Satch Sanders. (Of course, the strongest counter argument would probably be that, unlike Penny, three of those players were on championship teams.)

Re: “Most Shelby County Election Results Were Predictable

Jackson, while the party (Democrat), race and gender rule of thumb is probably on target for local Memphis elections, does it work in the opposite way for statewide elections in Tennessee? If any two of those factors are present, does a candidate have any chance of winning a statewide election in Tennessee? Heck, you could arguably take it even a step further. As things stand now, would a typical candidate have a decent chance of winning a statewide race in Tennessee if only ONE of the factors is present?
