my parents are from memphis. this weekend i am going to a family reunion. a short trip to memphis. while looking for hotels room a reviewer of a hotel made the comment that memphis is a dump and that we should sell it to china. that really made me laugh. memphis isn’t a dump, it’s just doesn’t have many new and shiny areas. whenever i go to memphis i think about the “walking in memphis” song by marc cohn. i should have a good time, though.
