Re: “Zoo President Calls Strickland Proposal 'Disappointing,' Wants 'Status Quo'

I can't take up space with the truth in a rebutal. It's filth, it's lies, every word he spoke.

Re: “Zoo Plans Temporary Greensward Marker for Saturday, Hires Off-Duty Cops

Yes, There is money for rental of bike rack, there is money for renting off duty cops, there is money for City Council kick backs.

But there is no money for a Parking Garage

And surely these monies for Saturday came from a tax payer supported budget?

Re: “Greensward Protest Caused 'Almost Irreparable Harm'

Two solutions for the Zoo, build it's own parking, with the support and help of the community for funding and planning. As any other responsible community partner would.

Or choose the path they are on, spin, pivot and lie to avoid the inevitable. The protests will continue and eventually, people will stop coming, thus also resolving the parking problem.

I'm good with either one, maybe Dr. Chuck isn't.

I often tell folks the biggest lie in Memphis is April and October. The weather is near perfect.

Re: “The Politics of Performance: Three questions about a free theater experience at Java Cabana

I was reading back over press that mentioned Republic Coffee and thought I would make a note here. The best thing to happen to Mr Goldsmiths show was our dismissal. He used the "freedom of the press" to push his show. Republic Coffee nor it's ownership were ever asked for further comment.

In truth, as is often now happening in infotainment rather than journalism, our comments where not given any review, nd clarification was not asked for. When you only look for one thing, it's all you can find.

In fact, our customers chose. Unlike other coffee shops, folks will note that there is rarely any type of entertainment at RC. Simply because our large student base walks out when "noise" starts. Open Mic and $5 covers are the realm of Otherlands, Java, and even Eclectic. Not us. We long ago turned off poetry jam, open mic's and theater. We have 1 night of improv a month.

Mr. Goldsmith tried to make this about politics and censorship and sadly journalists allowed him too. RC is the only coffee house in Memphis to consistently host political forums. Ask the 8 candidates who used our Tuesday night town hall meeting space.

The long and the short of it, Republic Coffee is long on making the best of list and Mr Goldsmith is short on having any more attention. IMHO of coarse.
