Re: “2017 Ostranders — Picks, Pans and WHO GOT ROBBED!?!?

"You wanna know my secret? I'm a liar. A flat out liar." - Mercy "Haint" (via me, via playwright Justin Asher)

Kudos to all the nominees, and huge props to everyone in the Memphis theatre community not nominated - in print. Not nominated in print. Without you, the nominees would not be nominees. This stuff is a team sport, and guess what: There really is no such thing as a small part.

Re: “Holding on Tight

Quindarious McGhay would be 13 years old today if Bill Giannini hadn't killed him. He'd be starting his last year of middle school next week. But Quindarious was killed by Bill Giannini two weeks before his 9th birthday - and three days before Santa was going to come.

Good ol' boy Bill is not only 5 years old, but he's enjoying his cushy job as a lobbyist and is hoping to run the gubernatorial campaign of a good ol' boy Republican buddy.

And Amy Weirich still has Quindarious' blood on her hands.

To my knowledge, Giannini has still never spoken to Quindarious' family, and has never issued an apology of any kind. He certainly hadn't when this article was published.

Re: “City Wants Input on Road Projects, Bike Lanes

"For those who were unable to make it to the meeting yesterday, a survey for each project will be available online for the next 21 days."

A link would help.

Re: “NEW UPDATE (More Names Added): More Layoffs Hit The Commercial Appeal

Donahue?? He's an institution!

That's the end of the CA for me. The absolute death knell. If I need to know something from the CA I'll ask someone who still subscribes to look it up for me.

If I can find anyone.

Re: “Theatre Memphis Announces 2017-18 Season: From Shrek to Florence Foster Jenkins

The whole "12 Angry People Other than White American Men" thing has always bugged me. The play was written for 12 angry white American men. In today's climate, that's what's going to give it the power to affect people. To leave them with a bad taste in their mouths. To affect change.

Yes, we have angry white American women. But right now, it's the men we need to be staring at, and this play is the perfect periscope.

Re: “Commercial Appeal Eliminating Paid Freelance Writers

I haven't employed the CA for years.

Sounds like the Memphis Magazine and the Flyer may have its choice of some great regular guests with no conflicts of interest to get in the way.
