Re: “Election Administrator Addresses Ballot Issues

Mistakes are made everyday by virtually everyone. Of course, it is no mistake of what this "reporter" highlighted to skew the article. Everybody is looking for somebody to shame ....

Re: “WYPL is Turning Up the Music

I have always enjoyed public broadcasts in Memphis. Seems all involved really enjoy what they do and bring a truly personal touch to it. I celebrate all willing to volunteer their time for others. Especially when they keep their personal political opinions out of it. No place for that.

Re: “Look Up, Not Down: A Message to Young Trump Supporters

Too much preaching and blaming (one sided blaming at that) in this article. As some have said above - we need solutions - solutions that will educate and motivate the majority to vote and act toward a greater good. Today we have groups labeled - left, right, conservative, liberal, socialist, antifa, trumpsters, etc. - but these designations do nothing but limit our potential by pigeon-holing people. Who in their right mind went to vote last election happily ready to vote for President? With those choices? I've been around a long time and have seen the steady decay of politics to where today no "group" can communicate with any other "group" anymore. ... And Weathers here adds nothing ... sigh ...

Re: “Jill Stein in Memphis

Interesting ... usually when an article mentions the "largish" room and "filled fairly completely" that means a back room of a large restaurant and about 30 people around a few tables ...

Re: “See Ya, 2016: Some Things We Need to Leave Behind

Don't really like the term Alt-right, especially in light of the lack of understanding of where the term started from and who it supposedly represents Like most words, people chose to "redirect" their meaning to be something advantageous to them ... Anyway, the best way to say "see ya" to a term is to stop using it ..... lol

Re: “New Destination

Let me see - $2 billion, 28,000 riders, 2 times per day, 240 work days per year (it is CA after all) = $148 costs to service? Make that a long-term service - say 10 years, and it's about $15 ... and, if more riders join the Muni system that offsets costs as well. Also - do we have emissions reductions, etc? As to displacement - reaching out to people with a riding option that costs collectively $100 per year for all services seems odd.

Anyway - who can live there anyway ..... prices are staggering all over to begin with .... this likely won't increase the rents ...
