Re: “You Know You're From Memphis If...

You leave at least a full car length between you and the car ahead of you at every stop light.

Re: “Vendor in the Grass

Show me where City Council can "solve" the other problems by undermining both litigation and mediation processes, and with one piece of legislation drafted behind closed doors based on a wilfully erroneous legal position. If they can't effectively address something as relatively simple as Zoo parking without resorting to Boss Crump behavior, why should we have any faith they're equipped to tackle poverty, education, or crime? And what, specifically, have they done to address those issues this session? Yet they devoted an entire day to shove the park bill down our throats, straight with no chaser. Whose priorities are misplaced, again?

We're blessed to live in a city where residents care this much. If you ever live in a city that doesn’t, you'll know it. It will look like Newark and smell like sewage.

What I fail to see from Zoo proponents is any credible counterargument to the actual *substance* of the conflict. It's cheap and easy to go ad hominem by assailing character and motives, but if you can't address the facts, laws, and precedent positions, you accomplish nothing beyond further galvanizing the opposition.
