Re: “Five women tell stories of harassment and abuse; Playhouse on the Square won’t release the results of sexual misconduct investigation.

Hat tip to office-mate Davis for grit and perseverance. As a theater maven (and practitioner) he would clearly prefer that things were otherwise than what he felt compelled to report.

Re: “Crossing Party Lines

Gee, guys, political candidates enter races and others exit them all the time withort threatening the downfall of humanity or the end of our democracy. On that score, we have other, more pressing things to worry about, don't we?

Re: “Crossing Party Lines

K.T., for certain, you've ID'd a couple of major points relevant to Democrats in Tennessee. You are not the only person regretting newcomer Mackler's departure from the scene in deference to a (fairly conservative) Golden Oldie. In fairness, though, Mackler had roughly a year's worth of time to himself to generate some lightning and never quite did so. I'm not sure "corrupt" is the right word to characterize the terms of his withdrawal. As for the "turnout" issue, Shelby County's Democrats have in recent years consistently failed to triumph in local county elections by over-relying on their theoretical numbers to support party slates that were too often humdrum (at best). What they've been lacking is zeal (in the non-fanatical sense of that word). Which takes things back to the matter of finding candidates who can generate it.

Right thou wert, S.S. Correction made.

Re: “Sticky Fingers

It would seem to be a world-class irony, given the book's disclosures about R.S. reported here, that the magazine came a cropper via its insufficiently sourced exposure of alleged sexual predation against women at the University of Virginia.

Re: “Roland vs. Lenoir: Next Year’s Mayoral Battle Flared Up in County Budget, Tax-Rate Debate

What jcov40 said.

(And, jcov40), yes, "reappraisal" and "appraisal" are the terms of art.)

Re: “All Buttholes Considered: The Imagine Cafe Story in Tweets

How surprising it is that a Shakesperean like yourself did not find an illustrrtive quotation from the appropriately named character in "A Midsummer Night's Dream!"
