riveting - can I have that 3 minutes of my life back?
this is not relevant to the man's performance. He admits he needs to change this, but he cannot healthily do so in 70 days. I understand where John is coming from and believe in a healthy lifestyle myself, but being overweight is not a character flaw. it is a difficult condition and does not speak to Lowery's character or ability as mayor. He is doing a great job in the interim. He has proven to be a man of his word and if he says he is going to address this issue, I believe him. Calling someone fat is ugly and cheap.
please do look at the map of the area described as Bellevue and Lamar - it is a bit misleading.
I live in Annesdale Snowden and it is a wonderful historic neighborhood and I do not believe this statistic would be current or accurate but for the Lamplighter Motel at Lamar and Bellevue. Take the motel out of the equation and the crime stats would go way down. In the years I have lived there a few property crime incidences have occurred but no more than any other urban area. I regret we are getting such a bad rap when the area has improved greatly over the years, due to the watchful and vigilant neighbors who care and want Annesdale Snowden to be the best neighborhood in Memphis (we think it already is!).
