Re: “Layoffs Again Hit Commercial Appeal Newsroom

Alas, when will it end? By it, of course, I mean the publication of The Commercial Appeal. In the opinion of this former longtime subscriber and employee, the newspaper has seemed largely worthless and irrelevant for the past few years. So sad.

Re: “A Q & A with Take 'em Down 901 Activist Tami Sawyer

Two thoughts: 1. More power to Tami -- a bold, intelligent and visionary leader. Memphis needs more people like her. 2. Am I the only one who thinks that some of the reporter's questions/comments seem overly opinionated for a journalist? What happened to the mask of objectivity? No offense, dear reporter, but who cares what you think? Unless you're joining Tami as a leader of the protest, this story is not about you. Stick to asking questions in a neutral fashion, not to interjecting so many of your personal opinions.

Re: “New School, Body Shop, Union McDonald's On Tap

Will the new McDonald's be built sideways like the current building, with one side of the building, the drive-through stand and half of the parking lot facing the street? Talk about ugly, especially on a major downtown artery.

Re: “When you’re a minority in a world of majorities.


While I empathize with your feelings and agree with your main points, theres no need to stoop to pointing out the uncouth actions of a few indifferent police officers. That does little or nothing to advance your argument. As a writer/journalist, youre better than that.

Re: “Gannett Editors Use Same Words, Similar Phrasing in Letters Explaining New Plan

Answer to Richard Thompson's question: They think the readers are extremely stupid.

Re: “NEW UPDATE (More Names Added): More Layoffs Hit The Commercial Appeal

OakTree, aside from the use of national wire stories, what do you mean by the newspaper being written someplace else? I must have missed that revelation...Regardless, this is yet another sad day for journalism in Memphis.
