Whole Foods, which charges an arm and a leg for specialty food items, is also usually packed. I guess these "cosmopolitan" stores must be full of tourists from St. Louis, yearning for a taste of home. You know, like salad dressing from restaurants.
Comical conspiracies notwithstanding, the CA doesn't run ANY syndicated columnists on its site, and never has. Only columns written specifically for the CA are on its site.

Indeed, we've got it good in a lot of ways. The only thing I'd change about Memphis is I'd like to have a beach a little closer, but that's one of those "if this is your biggest problem" complaints.

racheldobbs1, I spend a large chunk of my free time volunteering with homeless animals. I say this not to assert moral superiority, but to tell you I know whereof I speak.
