While I do NOT disagree with the belief that a conviction of the most heinous capitol crimes should carry a sentence of death, "We must have the moral courage" to assure beyond any reasonable possibility that the condemned is undeniably guilty and executed in accordance within the letter of the constitutionally supported law!
Time and cost can NEVER enter into a state sponsored execution for that would only create a general justification for taking of a life.
NeverFear: It's called politics, Pooky! Study it, learn it, embrace it, it's almost as much fun as walking barefoot through a chicken yard!
AWP: You are an awesome GOD!
I dunno, Steve. Jefferson Street WAS a destination for many of the south's and even the nation's black musicians. The El Morroc club was THE black music club in the mid south. Not to demean Memphis, which just might be the better fit, but when the interstate construction rang the death knell on Jefferson Street as a focal point in Nashville's black entertainment culture, that might have put the stops to what had been and was developing into a real black music mecca here.
bubbadog: I certainly hope you don't feel like Columbus discovering a new world. THAT is so very obvious!
Good Lord, you have NO clue!
The Tea Party is an angry white dominated mass of disgruntled spoiled children who just can not get over the fact we have a black President and will probably have a female President next, who are fanned into a frenzy by right winged lunatics on the radio and Faux News with their constant misinformation and outright lies. Hence they find their fear of people who may NOT be Christianist, or white, or American born JUSTIFIED by an outside source who constantly spoon feeds them anti mainstream media and blatant disrespect for the concept of government. Their strict ideological extortion in congress are the REASON we are in a dysfunctional funk and are holding all who depend upon government to do their job hostage to their self-serving whims.
You want a Tea Party dominated government, go elsewhere and construct a fascist regime, and leave my Democratic Republic the f*#k alone!
@Wes Rhody: "If you weren't there, you should probably not openly comment and act like an expert"
Well, that is the purpose of this forum, except for the "expert" part. People on this site probably have a tendency to go the "expert" way, but that is a natural by-product of a diverse commenting community with strong opinions, and should be ignored. Your over-reaction is just as misplaced as anyone else here. The fact does remain that the managing representative of Mortons acted like a complete ass and placed the company in jeopardy of just such an over reaction and calls for retaliation. I really do not expect anyone to call for putting anyone to death in the public square as you so "expertly"predicted, and the manager is NOT being described as the anti Christ, just a stupid ass hat!
I am sorry for your losses to cancer, I myself am a cancer survivor. Most everyone commenting may likely have a relative or friend lost to some form of cancer. That being said, I do not believe it is about cancer or the propriety of the restaurant. IMHO it mostly concerns the arrogance expressed by the managing representative, and insensitivity of her "doctor's note" comment. For Mortons to assume a apology and donation solves the problem only illustrates such even more.
