Re: “Blow Up the Vote!

If you drive by the typical public school, urban, suburban, or rural, you will notice a lot of obese, out of shape teens, who aren't physically fit enough to engage in defense of the nation, nor national service. The quality of Social Studies, ie Civics, Government, and Economics is questionable. Bread and circus have bequeathed us a generation of intellectually and physically flippent, ethically impotent youth. Our leadership is Libertine, at best. We are Rome in decline.

Re: “The Lessons of Watergate

Unfortunately, I don't foresee contemporary GOP voters or legislators rising to that level of integrity and accountability.

Re: “Election Results: Harris, Dean, Blackburn, Lee, Bredesen, Kustoff, Cohen Win

"A sizeable crowd had gathered early on in The Columns downtown (the old Union Planters headquarters building)"

Correction, The Columns is home to the former NBC (National Bank of Commerce) HQ.

Re: “It’s High Time Larry Finch was Immortalized in Bronze.

This city, and that university, didn't deserve Mr. Finch. "Grace, unmerited favor."

Re: “Shade in Shelby County: A Guest Viewpoint

Republican, suburbanite, alumnus of a 'Christian school'. No surprise to me. After all, It's Memphis and Shelby County. You dance with those that know the music and the steps.

Re: “Infill Frenzy

Every time I see that family/company logo I get nauseous. The memory of those wealth generating, soul ravaging BBQ joints and dry cleaning/coin-ops remind me that whether its an East Coast prep school, Ivy League educated plantation mayor or local prep school scions the motivations and results never change.

Re: “Quest for Grocery Store Porn — Testing Diane Black's Theories About School Shootings

Seriously, this is the GOP standard bearer for the Govorner's Mansion? And the residents of the other two grand divisions think we are another planet here.
