Re: “Coco & Lola’s: Lingerie for Everyone! Midtown Shop to Celebrate its Fifth Anniversary

Wow. An unusually lengthy promo complete with several professionally-taken pics of models wearing lingerie that the store presumably sells! Did Coco & Lola's pay for this glowing piece? Don't get me wrong. I have nothing at all against them. Part of me just kinda questions the Flyer's journalistic standards and professional judgment.

Re: “Evil or Stupid?

Or? How about evil AND stupid? Seems to me that our dear leader is both.

Re: “A Complete Stop

Spot on, Bruce. Totally agreeOn an unrelated note, Ive been wondering how the Flyer is faring these days, now that the dust seems to have settled on Krogers stupid decision to remove newspaper racks from its stores. And in the wake of the continued emergence of The Daily Memphian. Not to mention the fallout from COVID-19, which has probably greatly impacted advertising for entertainment-related stuff. Guess Ive been wondering as a longtime Memphis Flyer reader and as a supporter of local print journalism. Hope you guys are doing all right.

Re: “Genre Hopping With Talibah Safiya

Talibah is gifted, both as a musical artist and as someone who seems to possess the "it" trait that can mesmerize audiences. Thanks for the update on what she's been up to.

Re: “Beatdown in Brooklyn

Correction: The Grizzlies have won two straight on the road, not three. The win over the Lakers was a home game. Let's get it right.

Re: “Our Titans!(?)

LL, I hope you're right, but I definitely wouldn't hold my breath waiting for that to happen. In fact, I'd bet the farm that it will NEVER happen, at least not in our lifetimes. The combined population of the Tampa and Jacksonville metro areas is roughly 1.4 million more than the combined population of the Nashville and Memphis metro areas. Moreover, Memphis is a very poor city relatively speaking. Lastly, the likelihood of Memphis being willing to pony up a billion $$$ or more to build a stadium for an NFL team seems remote. (The likelihood of the state of Tennessee being willing to help Memphis build a new stadium seems even more remote.) So the idea of Memphis getting an NFL team seems like a pipe dream. Let's focus on supporting the Grizzlies and the Memphis Tigers in both basketball and football.
