Re: “Bianca Knows Best

Of course the best relationships are when you're 'there to monitor his every move', because without proper monitoring all we have to rely on is trust.

Re: “Raiford's — a Memphis Nightlife Landmark — Closes!

Awright! Awright! Awright! What are we going to do without Raiford's? Where else could we go after everything else was closed and get a beer dance with girls gone buck wild and enjoy the smoke machine fumes and sonic sounds of funky Memphis? Please King, talk Robert into keeping the doors open!!!

Re: “Vella New's Spirit Passes

Vella did readings for me and my family. They were astoundingly accurate. Her advice was always heartfelt and caring. She will be missed.

Re: “Report Says Mid-South Isn’t the Best Place to Live

I'm really supposed to believe that New York is the 4th safest city in America and Memphis is the 3rd most dangerous? No category for 'perceived quality of life', with quantifiers like: live music, active arts scene, film festivals, great food (Best Barbecue in the world). Sure we as a city, have problems: the best politicians that money can buy, and a lack of visionary political leadership 2nd only to Washington, BUT we also have Memphis In May, Overton Park, the Cooper-Young Festival,the TIGERS,Canon Center, the Red Birds, Beale St., Stax, SUN Records. Legendary and award winning music, art, films and literature have been created here. Please see: http://www.mymemphis.tv/movies/memphis/index.html

Re: “Jake Ford's Attacks on Family: Both Physical and Verbal

Jake Ford is an embarrassment to both the the district and his family. His election to public office (any public office) would surely bring about scandal & shame to Tennessee. I attended both forums that Ford participated in recently. Not since the wit & wisdom of Dan Quayle has the electorate been exposed to such butter-knife like wit, offered by the deer-in-the headlights Mr.Ford. At one point during the previous forum, Mr. Ford proposed to reduce crime by putting less police officers on our streets and implying that 'crime' was a by-product of gentrification. His rambling, inability to focus on the questions put before him and his constant attempts at mudslinging prompted laughter and derision from the audience. At one point, the 'honorable' candidate seemed to lose his patience with his potential constituents. One wonders if Mr.Ford is unable to govern his outbursts at public forum, how does hope to offer governance to our district? I could care less if he did drugs in the past, (I just wish that he wouldn't do them immediately before attending a public forum) or that he may have assaulted his father, girlfriend, or brother. The way a man conducts himself in private is his business after all. But when a man runs for public office then, we must allow ourselves to try and look into not the 'color of his skin, but the content of his character'. We are at that moment is history, foretold by a man of great character that served the people to the deepest level. My family has been involved in Democratic party politics since my Grandfather & Father supported Harold Ford Sr. & Jr. Jake Ford IS NO Harold Ford (Sr. or Jr.) This district (like our nation) is in serious need of good political leadership, from men of good character, whose proven commitment to the people is on record. The only record(s) that we may have of Jake Ford is arrests, GED test scores and 'some' college transcripts. Mr. Ford is a dangerous mix of divisive racial politics and ambition. Not that this district is any stranger to such antics, but it would refreshing to have politicians that were truly (truthfully) unifying in their message & mission. Be assured, Jake Ford's commitment is to himself, a self that has so far proven to be vain, arrogant and at the very least 'troubled'. If, Mr.Ford is truly interested in the public good, he should do the public an honorable service: withdraw, sir and allow men of better character to serve our district. Mr. Ford, you are truly interested in serving your fellow man, may I suggest Habitat for Humanity, MIFA or something better suited to your qualifications like the many of several Taco Bell locations throughout the state. You do a great dis-service to the Democratic Party and the democratic process, by continuing your candidacy.
