Hidden Cities
••••••••••••••••••••••••••••
Finally started reading Hidden Cities: A Memoir of Urban Exploration by Moses Gates. My buddy @6millionstories gave it to me at the beginning of the year but I just never found the time to crack it open and jump in. Now is that time and it's such an amazing tale. Every sentence resonates with my soul and only whets my insatiable curiosity.
.
For those who still view "No Trespassing" signs as more than a silly suggestion this book is not for you. For those who understand that there are entire cities hidden behind those signs awaiting exploration and discovery, then you should read this book!

Regrets
••••••••••••••••••••••••••••
Looking at this photo I now wish I had climbed to the top of this smokestack. It was hot and I was almost out of Gatorade but boy that would have been a cool view. I've climbed smokestacks in St. Louis and Philadelphia so I know the challenge they present but that particular day I just opted to avoid the rusty ladder rungs and stay on the roof. Oh well, next time ;)

Where's The Phone Booth?
••••••••••••••••••••••••••••
All my life I wanted to fly
Like the birds that you see way up in the sky
Making circles in the morning sun
Flying high in the sky till the day is done
(I can't break away)
Like a child in his fantasy
Punching holes in the walls of reality
All my life I wanted to fly
But I don't have the wings and I wonder why
(I can't break away)
(I can't break away)

Coney Island Hot Dog
••••••••••••••••••••••••••••
A Coney Island Hot Dog (or Coney Dog or Coney) is a hot dog sandwich in a bun topped with a savory meat sauce and sometimes other toppings. It is often offered as part of a menu of dishes of Greek origin and classic American 'diner' dishes and often at Coney Island restaurants. It is largely a phenomenon related to immigration from Greece and Macedonia to the United States in the early 20th century.
.
In 1913 the Coney Island Chamber of Commerce in New York had banned the use of the term "hot dog" on restaurant signs on Coney Island, an action prompted by concerns about visitors taking the term literally and assuming there was dog meat in the sausage. Because of this action by the Chamber of Commerce, immigrants passing through the area didn't know the sausage in a bun by the American moniker "hot dog." Instead, the handheld food would have been known to immigrants as a "coney island."

Dear Santa
••••••••••••••••••••••••••••
I only have three things on my Christmas wishlist. Raymond James. First Tennessee. Lincoln American. That's it. As usual Santa will likely just give me a lump of coal so I'll have to get them myself with maybe a little help from the Mexican Appleseed ;)

Journalism
••••••••••••••••••••••••••••
America is in trouble. Whether we like it or not our precious freedom and the democratic republic that provides it is intrinsically tied to a free and vibrant press. Journalism is essential to our way of life and it's struggling. Newspapers are closing or being bought by gigantic, multinational corporate entities completely disconnected from the communities they are supposed to serve. And that's a problem.
.
What should you do? Buy a newspaper. Subscribe to a local news website. Send tips in to your local television news station. Tell a reporter or photojournalist she's important to you. Make journalism a priority.
.
The future of our nation depends upon journalism. Support it today!

Bigotry
••••••••••••••••••••••••••••
The word "bigotry" is defined as "intolerance toward those who hold different opinions from oneself."
.
I've encountered my fair share of bigotry in my life and sadly, from my personal experience, most of it was rooted in some sort of Biblical or Fundamentalist Christian perspective.
.
Not saying all bigotry is motivated by religion but I've encountered a lot of intolerance under the guise of "following the Word of God."
.
Bigotry is bad no matter what the source. It's what breeds racism, xenophobia, sexism and pretty much any other -ism out there. It's a close-minded "I'm right and you're wrong" mentality that shuts down conversation and open dialogue. Arguing with a bigot is like arguing with a drunk 2-year-old (I do not endorse toddler drinking).
.
How do we stop bigotry? It all starts with you. Be open. Be compassionate. Be human.

Stereotype
••••••••••••••••••••••••••••
The word "stereotype" is defined as "a widely held but fixed and oversimplified image or idea of a particular type of person or thing."
.
Examples include things like holding the idea that people with a Southern accent are ignorant racists or that women can't be great business leaders or that asians are great at math.
.
Sometimes stereotypes can be rooted in truth and therefore makes them much more dangerous and difficult to identify than outright prejudice and bigotry.
.
So, be careful when encountering a stereotype and do not support it or help it spread. Bring rational thought and common sense to the situation and watch that stereotype wither away in the sunshine of intelligence.

Prejudice
••••••••••••••••••••••••••••
The word "prejudice" is defined as a "preconceived opinion that is not based on reason or actual experience."
.
Too many people make judgments and form opinions about others based on how they look, how they sound and even where they're from. It's sad but true.
.
And so to gain acceptance folks will alter their appearance, change the way they speak, move to another place and generally attempt to be someone other than their true selves. And that is sad.
.
Be yourself. Accept others for who they are. Don't worry about the idiots who can't see past their own prejudices. The more we ignore them and cease to allow their opinions to matter the better the world will become.

Pristine
••••••••••••••••••••••••••••
Permanently closed about two years ago this school is a time capsule untouched by vandals and graffiti writers. However, it's part of a disturbing reality in Memphis — many schools have closed due to financial, political and population shifts. Are schools in Memphis better or worse now that the city and county schools have merged??? I don't know. I just know that there are a lot that have been mothballed like this one and not a lot of new schools are being built.
