Prince Mango, Memphis pimp, and the ACA

It's a Sign

If you have a sign with changeable letters, chances are good that someone will change the letters. This message was conveyed at Otherlands coffee bar.

Neverending Mongo

Once a year Prince Mongo spends an hour in the studio with WHBQ's MemphiSports Live sports talk radio. During this visit, Mongo tasted Whole Foods' new Prince Mango sorbet for the first time. This is his response: "Oh my gosh. This is unbelieveable. (smack) I'm certainly going to go over and get a gallon of it. (slurp) I promise them to be expecting me. (smack) Oh, this is wonderful. (slurp) Oh my heavens, this is good. I can't stop eating it. May I lick the cup?"

Things Named Memphis

The lede-of-the-week award goes to New Orleans' Times-Picayune for this one sentence tour of the Dirty South: "In what sounds like a Southern crime travelogue, police said a pimp known as 'Memphis,' on the run from the law in Mississippi, has been arrested in New Orleans."

Opposite Day

Hats off to the Memphis Business Journal for the headline "ACA beginning to hurt hospitals in states like Tennessee," topping a story about how states that have chosen not to expand Medicaid eligibility are "expected to face financial challenges." In other words, it's a lack of the ACA in Tennessee that's causing the problems.
