JET SET 

In a snarky press release, 9th District congressional candidate Tom Guleff congratulated his recently announced opponent, the Los Angeles-based attorney Joe Ford Jr., on the former Memphian’s surprising entry into the race for the seat being vacated by Joe Jr.’s cousin, Harold Jr.

Guleff even offered to give the West Coast Ford a ride from the airport, saying, “I think Joe will like his visit ... Mud Island, the Downtown Trolley, and the River Walk present excellent opportunities to view the city ... I am also offering to help Joe Jr. in looking for a place to stay. We have a copy of the Apartment Finder guide that we found at the local grocery store.” Perhaps the other 9th District candidates can school Joe Ford Jr. in our city’s rich musical heritage and introduce him to the myriad joys of Memphis barbecue?
