Re: “The Death of Suburbia

Court ordered busing in the 70's started white flight and they're still flying. Not surprisingly, we have black flight as well. I suppose for most families its always going to be about schools first. And, racism. As the blacks move east and south the whites move more east and more south. I wonder why FedEx and HP aren't based in the downtown area? I also often think what Memphis would be like today without that busing order?

Re: “Turner Dairy Project Focus of Public Meeting

A 24/7 operation at that location seems a bit much. I certainly wouldn't be happy if I lived nearby. Turner needs to spruce up the property, it's become somewhat of an eyesore.

Re: “Nathan Bedford Forrest Statue and Remains to Stay in the Health Sciences Park

The evil that men do lives after them; the good is oft interred with their bones. Or, in the case of NBF, I suppose the opposite is more accurate?

Re: “Nathan Bedford Forrest Statue and Remains to Stay in the Health Sciences Park

What a slap in the face. Curious to see what the racial make up is of the voting members

Re: “Zoo President Calls Strickland Proposal 'Disappointing,' Wants 'Status Quo'

So, if the state was prohibited from building I-40 through the middle of the park in the '70's, how is turning the same park into a parking lot acceptable? Finally, Mayor Strickland put his foot down and logic sets in. Mr. Brady needs to go, like, yesterday.

Re: “Independent Autopsy Shows Hog-tying Killed Troy Goode

I agree with CL, the Mayor should explain exactly how he was restrained by the police and EMS.
