Re: “Pence, in Memphis, Pays Homage to MLK and Touts Trump Accomplishments

The hypocrisy & self-righteous sanctimony from Pence was expected. His visit was purely a photo-op. The stunner was how badly this COGIC bishop was played. It's amazing how much ideological and religious bigotry can bring acceptance by even the most unlikely of allies. It would be interesting to know if the members of the church expressed any objections to the Bishop.

Re: “Let’s Go Krogering ...

Kroger has a monopoly in this region. They have absolutely no loyalty or commitment to their customers or to Memphis/Mid-South region. Their decision to lay off personnel and replace them with self-check is only one example of their greed. Now, theyve decided to eliminate a way for customers to get local news & information. Question: How much, if any, money in PILOT/tax abatement does Kroger get from Memphis/Shelby County or the state of Tennessee?
They have proven to not give a damn about being a good corporate neighbor. Perhaps its time for Publix or another supermarket chain to come to Memphis.

Re: “Why The Fuss?

Thanks for this, Bruce. I've got a feeling The Flyer will be helping me keep my sanity for the next four years. We are fortunate to have your perspective and excellent journalism.

Re: “Election 2016: WTF?

Memphis Flyer, you are the best that journalism offers in this city. I plan to frame the cover & hang it in a prominent location. It captures my sentiments for the next four years. Great text, Jackson. #WTF

Re: “Schadenfreude at the Polls

Can you die of schadenfreude? Good one, Bruce. Btw---I was told by the perfectly coiffed circa 1960's sweet lil church lady at my precinct that my driver's license name no longer matches the name on the Election Commission's "Book" (as if it were the Gospel according to Shelby County). After a brief amount of staring at my photo, she said, "Well, I can see you are who you are." Then, she gave me a Diebold machine card.
