Re: “Lighten Up, Awreddy! The Prez Fist-Bumps, and the Buddha Giggles!

I think Mayor Pro Tem Myron Lowery's fist bump was nothing more than a terribly misguided and impulsive attempt at an innocent greeting. Everybody gets starstruck and goofy at some point in their lives, and I don't know many people who wouldn't be pretty awed by His Holiness, The Dalai Lama's presence.
In my opinion, this fist-bump load amounts to nothing more than the Memphis equivalent of Howard Dean's "Byaaaaaah!" It happened; it's over. So, I think we should all just try to shake it off and move on. There is nothing we can do about it now. If anything, it's just further public audition (like a sort of trial run) by Myron Lowery for the office of Mayor of Memphis.
If you're down with the 'Fist-Bump Incident', and see it as friendly and harmless, then use it to help discern your choice for office. If you think it was a horribly embarrassing misstep by someone who was representing our city, then let that be a determining factor in who you pick. Either way, inform yourself. And for pete's sake, people... CARE! Let's take back our City! Go vote.
