Re: “A-Tan

I love A-Tan! They have marvelous hot and sour soup, and if you're watching your waistline and/or have kids in tow, their steamed chicken and veggies is excellent; comes with two kinds of sauce -- yum! My daughter agrees with MemphisCheapskate about the hibachi part of the restaurant: better food and cheaper prices than Benihana. Service is friendly and fast, too.

Re: “Guild: Severance Delays at Commercial Appeal 'Shameful'

I'm a retired flight attendant. I flew for 45 1/2 years and volunteered to work for the various unions we had (5 mergers) and saw the greed and heartlessness of management up close and personal. I held every local union office and some national ones during that time. Management greed and heartlessness knows no boundaries. My heart aches for the dedicated employees who got screwed by Gannett, which is legendary for mistreating its mainline employees. Corporations these days are all about upper management, and God pity the middle managers who think they stand a chance. What has happened to our once admired country? This takeover has been calculated and insidious, and I don't know how we can reverse the tide if people continue to vote against their best interests.

Re: “Contemporary Media Inc. Hires Michael Donahue

I'm so happy to hear this! I don't like Gannett and think Mr. Donahue will be an excellent fit with Contemporary Media. Looking forward to reading his pieces and/or his photography.

Re: “New Plan for Commercial Appeal To Be Unveiled Wednesday

I hate Gannett. It's turning our country into one big cesspool for news. No objective journalism allowed there. The CA has become a skinny, threadbare read with no independent opinions allowed. Gannett is doing this to cities all over the country. There is very little variance among them save paid obits, etc. BAH!!

Re: “TVA Taps It, Cohen on College, & Makers

Well, hell! Let's make our cooling water cost efficient by helping ourselves to our God-given, pure, clean drinking water. After all, we can always make more of it, right? Oh, and if we can't, then we can purify the sludge that's left like Flint is doing, right? Oh, that's right ... Flint can't. Well, let's worry about that when the time comes. By then we'll surely have a solution. And by all means let's keep the Electoral College where your vote really doesn't count. Wiser heads than yours will prevail to dictate who's going to lead our country. That's the way you want it, right? Where someone you've never heard of is the real one to decide who's going to occupy the highest office in the land? Your trek to the polls is meaningless, so who needs voter ID or even campaigns? I am completely appalled and disgusted by this. It should be one wo/man, one vote. And pure, clean drinking water is finite and should be untouchable for any other purpose. Period. End of story.

Re: “Councilman Berlin Boyd Wants to Decriminalize Weed

I am all in favor of legalizing unlimited medicinal marijuana for people it may help. I'm a little less liberal when it comes to recreational marijuana, but I still think it should be legal. It would wipe out the illegal vendors and that segment of our society which is unsavory and which would sell tainted marijuana at a greatly escalated price.
