If you've been searching the Web for the illustrious King of God's Country (a.k.a. Frayser) lately, you may have come up empty-handed. The Mayor of Frayser's Web site, once linked to the Stage Stop's Web site, has been down for the last few months.
The Mayor (a.k.a. Ritchie Pierce) claims he was accused in something he calls "Operation Tennessee Gangsta Walk," but recently cleared of all charges, he's back in business with the newly re-launched MayorofFrayser.com
Fans of the old site will find all their faves (the Blunt Recycling Program, info on the Mayors plan to transform Mapcos into police substations, etc.). But the new site also features some fresh surprises, such as the menu for Chez Frayser (featuring fish-stick casserole and Spam cutlets), "fBay," (where you can "bid" on mounted deer heads and potato guns), and the agenda for a Frayser Safari Tour (includes a visit to Puffy the weed dealer, a stay in Alberts Cabins, and a ghetto home tour).
And do check the new FIF (Frayser in February) celebration pix. It's, um, a little like Memphis in May, or Mardi Gras without all those pesky beads. Some are probably NSFW, depending on how picky your boss is.
