Re: “Residents Share Concerns and Support at Truck Stop Community Meeting

I've seen some great designs using the shipping container concept, that doesn't really worry me. But the parking/traffic situation is confusing. Small lot, food trucks taking space and no real parking. What is the law requiring a certain number of parking places for a certain number of tables?
There's talk of this being a pedestrian destination but given how most folks in this town want to park directly in front of where they're eating I'm skeptical. Here in the CY we have tons of parking within a half-block of the intersection but the business' want to build a parking garage. I walk the neighborhood regularly (nightly) and there's parking off the main drag if you're just willing to walk about a block. But the fear of crime/inconvenience seems to create the impression that there's no parking. This compounds the problem I think...

Re: “"Monetizing Content" at The Commercial Appeal

Brian makes a good point, I fear we will not ever read what the reporter discovered while covering FedEx. The term "monetizing content" sends chills down any journalists spine. Is it hard to imagine how that would affect your coverage, knowing your story was "sponsored?" Did the term "chilling effect" ever enter these hacks brains? Or maybe that was the goal from the beginning.
