Fly on the Wall 

Violent Memphis, cat pee, and pole dancing

Geography 901
Memphis is soooo violent. ("How violent is it?") I'm glad you asked. Memphis is so violent, it's beating up neighboring states and taking credit for their violent crimes. According to a Memphis Business Journal headline, "Memphis has 3 of nation's most violent neighborhoods." Those scary parts of town include the neighborhood around St. Paul and Walnut, the neighborhood around E.H. Crump and South Fourth, and the neighborhood near East Broadway and Stuart, which is in West Memphis, Arkansas.

Verbatim
Quote of the week: "There's nothing quite like the odor of cat urine." — Ouida Luster, neighbor of a sick cat enthusiast. Luster was quoted by WMC-TV reporter Janice Broach in a story about the odor in a Memphis condo community after the hospitalization of a woman who allegedly kept more than 20 cats in her small condo.

Terrorist Impersonator
Is accused domestic terrorist J. Everett Dutschke a part-time Wayne Newton impersonator? That's the report from NBC News regarding the Tupelo-based martial arts instructor, Tea Party politician, accused child molester, and conspiracy enthusiast accused of sending ricin to Obama, and, in turn, framing Elvis impersonator Paul Kevin Curtis. No videos of Dutschke singing "Danke Schoen" have emerged, but if convicted, he may very well become the world's first incarcerated Elvis impersonator impersonator.

Pole Dancer
In the event that you didn't see last week's viral photograph of an MPD cruiser swinging on a pole like Janis Fullilove, here you go.
