THE FIELDS HAVE TURNED BROWN 

THE FIELDS HAVE TURNED BROWN

While visiting Florida Street on the scenic south side of downtown Memphis, Governor Don Sundquist proudly announced that the new Brownfield Redevelopment Amendment will encourage the rehabilitation and reuse of potentially contaminated urban areas. The proclamation occurred on a site where a former screen-door manufacturing plant is going to be converted into a residential neighborhood. Sundquist did not comment on the fact that, depending on the exact type of "potential" contamination and the density of the area's repopulation, the Brownfield Redevelopment Amendment could generate any number of super-powered mutants to aid in the war on terror.
