I was invited to Pizza Stone by a friend after wanting to try it for some time. Right before going I read the reviews posted here and almost cancelled. I am so glad I went. The food was some of the best i have ever eaten and the presentation was beautiful. The prices were reasonable and our little server was attentive and very sweet. While I personally prefer my salad dressing on the side, I'm willing to defer to the judgment of the individual(s) who prepared our food last night. Can't wait to go back.

Re: “Memphis’ Truancy “Crisis”

My kids were bored to tears in public school and occasionally acted out because of it. When I met with staff and teachers I found that they were ever so willing to discuss the problem, but no one seemed to offer solutions. When I suggested consequences commensurate with the misbehavior, I was told that it could not possibly be done because...yadayadayada. Frankly, I jumped at the opportunity to put them in private school when I could. It was an amazing eye-opener. If a kid misbehaved, he or she got "Saturday school". The key was that a parent had to attend as well. Kids had to clean the premises and parents had to blow their weekend. There were very few repeat offenders. I don't think jail is the answer - involvement is the answer.
