Re: “Love Story

Thank you for that story John. There are so many negative stories about current and former political leaders on the local and national scene, it is refreshing to hear about someone we can all respect.

Re: “Letter from the Editor

This letter offers the soundest advice I have seen on the cumulative issues of Memphis growth and Suburban independence. I agree with each of the five recommendations. I come originally from the north (a Memphian for 27 years) where the major cities have long been landlocked. As a result, they focus on bettering what they have within their finite boarders. Instead of reacting to the activities in their suburban communities with outrage, posturing and annexation, they focus on what they have. They improve neighborhoods, develop cultural amenities, make sure their schools are top notch, and generally focus on being a high-quality choice to live and work. And, guess what their suburbs do? They too improve neighborhoods, develop cultural amenities, make sure their schools are top notch, and generally focus on being a high quality choice to live and work. As a result of this singular local focus on being the “best” in what amounts to a competition for residents and businesses, the quality of each municipality and the metro area as a whole rises. The strongest and most attractive cities in the world are diverse and vibrant communities that are landlocked by other diverse and vibrant communities. Bigger isn’t better. Better is better.
