19th Century Club to Be Demolished, Midtown to Freak Out

In light of news that the new owners of the Nineteenth Century Club" on Union Avenue will demolish the historic building, many Memphians, particularly Midtowners, are furious.

Perhaps the City Council can propose a bill aimed at mollifying the notoriously vocal Midtown crowd? The SUMO (Shut Up Midtowners Ordinance) would require that any Midtown building that is more than 50 years old can not be demolished unless it is replaced by a Trader Joe's.

Such an ordinance should have the effect of short circuiting Midtowners brains to the point where they are utterly unable to respond to any proposed demolition.
