2. Last Word: Presidents Day In An Election Year, Minority Business and Spring Training
- Tuesday, February 16, 2016
Presidents Day in a presidential election year.
Consider the political kaleidoscope of a foggy office-bound or home-bound Monday in Memphis with former President George W. Bush on the tube in the late afternoon defending his brother’s presidential campaign without once uttering the word Trump.
No further word of a Trump appearance promised for Memphis and some of Donald Trump’s own statements Monday suggested that by the time Memphis is on his schedule, he might be running as an independent.
Then there is the obsession in one corner of social media with Supreme Court history in rich detail.
And heads were turned Monday evening by the excerpt on the Grammys from the Broadway musical about Alexander Hamilton – a founding father born in the West Indies who established the nation’s financial system and the Federalist party. He never became a president, in part, because the vice president killed him. Hamilton wasn’t the only one who had been talking bad about Aaron Burr. The top of the ticket, President Thomas Jefferson, had decided to dump Burr from the ticket in the next election and Burr was trying to transition to become governor of New York.

4. Birmingham Offers More Than Bowl Game
- Tuesday, December 22, 2015
University of Memphis football fans will head to Birmingham, Ala., next week to celebrate a bowl game appearance that could see the team finish with 10 wins for a second straight season.
It’s been a historical run, and the Birmingham Bowl appearance will give the Tigers a rare chance to play against Auburn University. The game’s 11 a.m. kickoff makes it a plausible day trip, but then Birmingham has plenty to offer anyone thinking of spending a night or two.
5. Won’t be the same without the head ball coach
- Saturday, November 07, 2015
I miss Steve Spurrier.

It wasn’t the same this week without Spurrier throwing a jab or two at UT leading up to the game.

19. Back to Black
- Monday, November 28, 2011
The Friday after Thanksgiving, often dubbed, “Black Friday,” is considered by many to be the traditional start of the holiday season shopping in the U.S.
The origin of the term varies. Some sources attribute the Philadelphia Police Department’s coinage of the phrase in 1966 to describe the hectic traffic and chaotic crowds on the busy shopping day. Others deem the expression to reflect a retailer’s shift to profitability during the holiday season, when a boost in sales moves a business out of the “red” and into the “black.”
