Re: “Letters to The Editor

Whole Foods, which charges an arm and a leg for specialty food items, is also usually packed. I guess these "cosmopolitan" stores must be full of tourists from St. Louis, yearning for a taste of home. You know, like salad dressing from restaurants.

Re: “The Mystery of Ann Coulter and the Commercial Appeal

Comical conspiracies notwithstanding, the CA doesn't run ANY syndicated columnists on its site, and never has. Only columns written specifically for the CA are on its site.

Michael C: Seriously? The CA doesn't put Ann Coulter online because they want fewer readers? Do you know how the news industry works?

Re: “Where Memphis Leads the Pack

Indeed, we've got it good in a lot of ways. The only thing I'd change about Memphis is I'd like to have a beach a little closer, but that's one of those "if this is your biggest problem" complaints. It's not like my house is on fire (or missing), or I'm out in the street throwing rocks at tanks. I love it here.

Re: “The Enduring Mystery of WTC 7

This is silly. Bruce, do you really trust a sensationalist TV show, which has a financial motivation to get people intrigued and spooked, over the word of structural engineers who do this for a living?

Re: “No Tweets at the Tea Shop

M_A: Why do you make this arbitrary distinction that the telephone is acceptable but Twitter is not? Is it because you grew up with a telephone but Twitter is new and weird? For that matter, why is it OK to leave a comment on a Flyer article but not on Twitter?

Please send reply via carrier pigeon.

Re: “Fullilove to Animal Activist: "So what?"

I'm late checking back in on this, but:

racheldobbs1, I spend a large chunk of my free time volunteering with homeless animals. I say this not to assert moral superiority, but to tell you I know whereof I speak. If every person who likes to pontificate on-line about how shelters "ought to be run" would go spend a couple hours a week doing some actual work, this problem would be solved in short order.

Re: “Pita Cafe

Once folks taste one of those pitas, they'll come back. They are insanely good. After the first time I ate there, I went back three days in a row.
