Re: “City School Funding Moves Forward

Seriously, how do you start with a story about funding and commit a complete non-sequiter and transition to some random anecdote about an incident at Oak Haven? I'm willing to be wrong here but this was a fairly transparent and craven attempt to spice the story up with violence. Give me a break.

Re: “Our Tom Watson Moment

Julio Franco is a great example of this - in 2007, Franco was the oldest active player in baseball at 49.

Re: “Farbs and Hardcores

I mostly agree here but Jerry Rice is a great counterexample; he was always in the latest and greatest workout gear despite the fact that he was the hardest working man in football. Some folks are just dandies who need to look good no matter where they are.

Re: “Inner City Baseball Whiffs

This is a sad story on many levels. As Frank Robinson prominently said, "The decline of baseball in many of our urban centers is directly related to the increase in single parent households." Baseball, unlike basketball and football, requires a father or other significant male role model to teach you the game. Great story.

Re: “The Calipari Era: How Do You Vote?

False choice. There are plenty of programs doing well on the field and in the classroom.

The facts are still out on this but let's not forget that Coach Cal graduated a high percentage of his players and was one of the few college basketball coaches who was able to win and do fairly well on the academic side.

Re: “All Oldies All The Time

Good question - there are many young Democrats who should be considering runs for both mayor and the 9th congressional but seem to be caught up in the "wait your turn" philosophy. Sadly, Cohen and Herenton become the beneficiaries and the city of Memphis loses.
