Soon Memphis will have erased all of their history, good or bad, and have nothing. Destroying a beautiful home like that, which is irreplaceable, is very sad indeed.
The Joni Mitchell and Counting Crows song "Big Yellow Taxi" says it all. They paved paradise and put up a parking lot.
As for the neighborhood not shopping there, consumers have a very short memory. Look at all the shoppers at Chinamart. I am sorry I meant Walmart. These people only care about the bottom line. PRICE
I know people that have been on murder trials in Shelby County. They were sequestered. They had no knowledge of the outside sentiment. They are given a list of rules and requirements for convicting someone. They cannot lessen the charge unless it meets certain requirements. My wife was on the jury for the guy involved with the shooting of the pizza delivery guy a few years back. He did not pull the trigger. Everyone in the public including me THOUGHT he was guilty. He was found innocent of the murder because of the rules and requirements needed to convict. There is a name for the rules but I do not remember it.
