Re: “Gordon Ramsay's in Memphis to Save a Restaurant!

If he can transform Catfish Cabin, he'll make a believer out of me! Three or four decades ago, that place was borderline nice for a catfish fry house. But it morphed into a sad and undesirable restaurant that's not close to being on the radar of anyone I know, not even the avid catfish lovers.

Re: “LeMoyne-Owen receives donation at its gala

In other words, the college received a $250,000 grant from the county that wasn't approved by the full Shelby County Commission, right?

Re: “Julien Baker, Phoebe Bridges, and Lucy Dacus: boygenius

Great. I love Julien's music..But the obvious question that goes unanswered in this story is will the tour include a stop in Memphis? If so, when and where?

Re: “Man Arrested for Recording Police Interaction at Mall

GCobb, the problem with saying "if you don't want to be labeled as shady, don't go into the mall in groups with hoodies looking shady" is that "looking shady" is highly subjective. As we've seen time and time again in recent months, some folks seem to think that young black folks (especially males) always look shady and threatening no matter what they're wearing! Would the teens at Wolfchase Galleria have been arrested if they were white? I doubt it. You can call that playing the race card if you'd like. I'll call it the simple truth, even more and more so in Trump's America.

Re: “No Next Day Election Results For Gannett Newspapers

Cindy, I totally agree...My parents are from that generation. (Heck, I'm not far from it myself, given that I still prefer the tactile feel of a print newspaper. But not enough to subscribe to The Commercial Appeal.) The CA is doing a tremendous disservice to some of their most loyal subscribers. Pitiful.

Re: “Group Urges City Council to Call Off Educational Campaign

Time to start a campaign to impeach Berlin Boyd? I'll consider contributing...And what about Allan Wade? Is it just me or does he seem to be THE most powerful person connected with the council, way more so than any of the elected council members? Was he responsible for writing the grossly misleading referendums?

Re: “WMC Has Something to Say About Uranus

Juvenile humor at close to its worst in my book.
