1. Last Word: Bird Is The Word, Governors Quartet and Charlie Morris's Secret
- Friday, June 15, 2018
Former Vice President Joe Biden plays the Orpheum Friday evening. Maybe that isn't the right way to put it -- unless there's a drum solo no one is talking about. Free Bird?
I'll take it as further evidence of the new American politics that is evolving and is far from settled at this point. Politicians do paid speaking gigs all the time. And at times it is controversial. But the gigs are usually some kind of speaking fee to make remarks at a corporate function -- not selling individual tickets on line. This is ostensibly to promote Biden's new book and book deals and politicians go way back. But in a lot of cases, those are free events in a book store. When Biden was last here, it was as vice president at the Norfolk Southern intermodal rail yard in Rossville.

- Wednesday, August 10, 2016
So you were at the Mid-South Coliseum every time the doors were open and you could scrape together the price of a ticket south of $10 in the city’s golden age of concerts.
But these days there aren’t that many shows to go to, the ticket prices are much higher and truth be known you probably wouldn’t go to that many shows these days.

15. The Plight Of The Peppered Moth
- Tuesday, April 19, 2011
It’s good to be smart and adaptable. If not, you have to take what life gives you. And if you happen to be a peppered moth, that may mean becoming a snack for a hungry bird.
Here’s the highly summarized story of the perilous plight of the peppered moth. The facts: Some peppered moths are predominantly light; some peppered moths are predominantly dark. Some trees (where peppered moths hang out) are predominantly light; some trees (where peppered moths hang out) are predominantly dark. Birds think peppered moths are tasty and enjoy eating them; birds will most likely eat the peppered moths they can easily see.
16. Takeuchi Joins Memphis Veterinary Specialists
- Wednesday, February 23, 2011
Dr. Ai Takeuchi has joined Memphis Veterinary Specialists and PetMed Emergency Center as the facility’s first hospitalist.
Hometown: Kugenuma, Japan, but I grew up in Trinidad, U.S., Indonesia and Singapore as well.
Education: University of Pennsylvania, VMD; Mount Holyoke College, BA
Family: I am in Memphis with my husband, Chris, and my son, Aiden, who is almost 4 months old. We have a dog named Bovie and three cats: Rex, Mika and Lailee.
Activities you enjoy outside of work: Eating good food; I’m a foodie and love trying new restaurants. I also love to cook, horseback ride, read books and go on hikes or long walks with the family and our dog, Bovie.
Who has had the greatest influence on you? My mom had the most influence over me. She was a “Tiger Mom” and raising me in different countries while upholding cultural traditions must have been a challenge. She always pushed me to excel and I wouldn’t be where I am today without her support.
Why did you pursue a career as a veterinarian? At the age of 4, I went from wanting to be a bus driver to a veterinarian. I’ve always loved animals, and taking care of them is my dream job. They have no voice of their own and need someone to champion for them and take their interests at heart. They are all innocent little souls that need someone to watch over them.
What drew you to Memphis Veterinary Specialists? I wanted to work with boarded specialists who offered the highest level of medicine available. I enjoy emergency work as well as the challenges of complicated cases. It is imperative that I can give my clients a variety of medical options, including seeing a premier specialist.
What do you consider your greatest professional accomplishments? Whenever I can say I helped a family cope with their pet’s illness and was able to ease both their pain and help their pet. That is a great accomplishment for me.
What do you most enjoy about your work? Making a difference in an animal’s life and their family’s life. Being able to bring comfort to both the pet and the family makes my job fabulous. Even if the diagnosis is not a good one, at least I can answer their questions and help them make the right decision for their family.
