This letter and many of the comments are so full of stereotyping and sanctimonious finger pointing it's pathetic. No place is perfect, and the sooner Memphians and suburbanites realize they're all hitched to the same wagon, the better off we'll all be. Germantown doesn't exist in a vacuum and neither does Memphis. We all need one another.
Let's knock down the boundaries and all be Mid-southerners. Take a regional view of biology, geology, governance and economics and cast this "us" vs. "them" attitude into the river.
Tony Allen is the man. How can you not love this guy?
