Re: “Willie Herenton: Still Standing?

Willie Herenton made silence such a wonderful thing to look forward to, and now that we've had it, it's already soon gone.

But, here's what I can't believe: How in the hell is this pompous @ss going to take questions from callers? I plan to torture him!

Re: “Herenton Goes Out Graciously, But...

"As soon as the speech was over he shared blame with what he described as a new African-American middle class that doesn't understand politics and power. “They don't understand the struggle,” Herenton said, reminiscing about segregation and his own hard road from poverty to City Hall."
--

Don't understand politics and power? Yet another off base assessment by Herenton. We very clearly have seen what he did, or rather what he did not do, with power as mayor. He left crime build over the years to such a point now where people are afraid to take a walk, play in the parks, or even leave their windows open at night to let the cool air in. Gangs take our children and 1 in 5 kids drop out of school. Jobs have left our city at an alarming rate, moving to north Mississippi because of Herenton's arrogance. ("If you don't like it, feel free to leave.)" His list of failures with regard to the effective use of power are significant.

Yes, he did use his power to benefit himself and his cronies. We understand that.

We don't understand the struggle?! Well, I'm reminded of the old movie that plays every Easter, The Ten Commandments. In it, as the Jews were receiving the Commandments from Moses, Dathan (played by Edward G. Robinson) was loudly assailing the idea of the Commandments, claiming that the Jews were trading one master for another. Of course, they were not, but the idea of trading one master for another is applicable in the case of Herenton. He sees himself as the only qualified person in the city limits to run anything, be it the city, the school system or as a member of congress. He sees himself as the master of black people in this city, and we dare not vote against him lest we be considered wrong-headed.

Memphians are sick of Herenton. He took far more than he gave. Like many I was once proud that he became our mayor, but over time he fell prey to the worst of politics. We don't understand politics? Mr. Herenton, oh, yes we do!

Re: “Memphis Police Release Statement on Lorenzen Wright Case

The trouble with religion today is that a lot of people practice it, but not to many are good at it. And, it is no doubt the case with Tommy here. In addition to his demonstrated rottenness and lack of Christian behavior, he also proves himself the fool with his moronic assessment of the late Mr. Wright's choices.

And, now we know that the police took Mr. Wright's ex-wife in custody today, after spending all day at her home gathering evidence. And reportedly, the neighbors spoke of a big fire coming from the fire pit in her backyard (on one of the hottest nights of the year) the day after he went missing.

"Tragedy? Absolutely. Mystery? Let's not be simpletons." Not like Tommy V.

Re: “Memphis Police Release Statement on Lorenzen Wright Case

Here's a dead pro golfer: http://bit.ly/dj89Pd | I guess you could say she hung out with scumbags. She made bad life choices. I'm sure many thought she was a "good kid."

SHe used the judgement of a dumb ass. It doesn't matter how good of a kid anyone thinks she was, none of us knew her, but I guarantee you she fed her own risk factors.

Sorry but to me that's the behavior of an idiot.
