Re: “Tami Sawyer Announces Mayoral Candidacy

She has an excellent chance of winning on a tidal wave of revenge and ignorance. Memphis will indeed be transformed even further, and if you vote for her, you will regret your choice in the end.

Re: “Gay & Lesbian Community Center Receives Threat

Based on a number of recent examples, did these threats actually get made in this case, or is this part of the narrative required on the part of LGBT proponents?

I would also refer to recent, high-profile examples of LGBT harrassment of religious conscientious objectors, so be careful about reporting on matters like this while ignoring examples of businesses being shut down because they were harrassed, sued and/or threatened out of existence by LGBTs who are determined to attack and destroy opponents while calling for tolerance.

Re: “Chairman Carson Bows to Demands of Democratic Party Committee and Resigns

Congratulations to the Flyer for thoroughly investigating a Democrat. I'm frankly surprised and yet appreciative of the efforts made to shed light wherever needed. Reporting fairly without (or in spite of) bias is a mostly lost art indeed. Thanks.

Re: “Zekepolooza: A Farewell to Zeke Logan

A lovely event held yesterday, and we were pleased to attend. Bruce, we may not agree on many things, but I know we can agree that Memphis, local media and many friends suffered a real loss when Zeke passed. God bless Zeke and God bless the Flyer and its staff.

Re: “What They Said (February 12, 2015) …

Good, even-handed selections here. No bias at the Flyer. Jackson Baker said so.

Maybe a bit of balance. Thanks to the ACA, my friend who is self-employed and turned 50 this month went from paying $250/month in premiums (himself and his wife, no kids) to over $825/month for less coverage and a deductible that tripled. Where he'll go for coverage is anyone's guess.

By what right does this or any President have to "fundamentally transform" this nation?

Lastly, if the Presdient doesn't despise this country, why would he seek to fundamentally transform it?

Re: “Two Dialogues from the Climactic Committee Meeting That Finished Off "Insure Tennessee" in Nashville


My point of view is never front and center in this publication, and I don't expect it to be. I respect the Flyer and its writers enough to at least see what it and they have to say. Do you read/view stories outside your worldview? If you do, good for you. If not, try it. I don't think I know everything. I simply have no patience with the meme that Republicans hate people, and we should side with Democrats because they "care". Total BS and the reasoning of a five-year-old.

What I do expect for a seemingly credible publication is to fully report different sides of an issue, ideally in the same story, unless it's an editorial. That's not too much to ask.

Also, I am not a Republican. I prefer sanity.


Me, too. After reading your post, I am deeply concerned.
