Quotes

A 50-cent term to describe this is "self-marginalization." Taylor Swift didn't use that. She predicted the future of mean people this way: "I can see you years from now in a bar, talking over a football game with that same big loud opinion but nobody's listening washed up and ranting about the same old bitter things."
"Now, as a former Board Member of the Mississippi Tea Party, the Vicksburg Tea Party, and a member of the Meridian Tea Party, I now know that there is no tolerance for ANY criticism of CHRIS McDANIEL" Marcy wrote
"As we progress through the remainder of 2014, our focus remains on achieving a seamless integration of Ameristar and maximizing the synergies and cash flow our combined company produces. Through the end of the 2014 second quarter, we estimate that $58 million of recurring annual synergies have been implemented, and we will continue to work to drive incremental cost savings and revenue synergies. On the balance sheet, we will continue the momentum we have built since completing the Ameristar acquisition, and are committed to using our strong free cash flow production to repay debt and reduce our leverage ratios" concluded Mr. Ruisanchez
"We may not be an 'independent restaurant,' but we're as independent as you get," she says. "We work for the city, but we don't work for a corporate restaurant. That was really important to us to utilize [local] beers and the atmosphere of Memphis. We want Memphians to enjoy it, but we also want tourists to leave and know that they had a taste of Memphis."
